Wonderful Bookcase and SystemBillI bought this and other Kallax bookcases to store many large and heavy art & design books. Everything has worked perfectly. The bookcases are easy to assemble and more than strong enough to handle the heaviest books.5

I love this unit andPaulaI love this unit and I was happy that they offered this color5
Great looking piece!RobertLook good, easy to build, highly functional. My only gripes would be maybe use some wood glue for the pins and provide some backing to make them sturdier.
We had some Masonite cut to fit the backside and glued/drilled them in. Now, not a wobble.4
Dowels/holes not a proper fitShannon B.We were very disappointed in this after easy assembly of the micke desk and malm dresser. Either the dowels were too long for one side or the holes weren’t drilled out properly, and it took entirely too long to put this together. There are gaps on one side even after trying to fix it, and you can see the dowels. The other side is bowing. We ended up having to shorten some dowels while some others broke. We live 2 hours from the nearest IKEA and could not just exchange it easily.1
good product,good price.OSCAR E.good product,good price.5
loveSueLOVE these units for storage in my basement...now waiting the LEKMAN boxes to come in!!!!5
Impressive storage cubeDarrylWell built,easy to assemble and great storage for our grandsons toy's.5
The Kallax 4 x 4 is an attractive answer to storage, displayGeraldMy wife and I put it together in an hour or two. Instructions were clear. It is a two person job I think especially when righting the structure for its final phases. We broke a dowel by twisting the structure slightly while raising it but that was easily rectified with some gorilla glue where the dowel broke off to provide the strength. Looks great and a great value but this is an item that might not withstand a move to another home.5
Great Organizer!LisaWe have purchased several of these units for our school. It’s an inexpensive way to teach students about organizing using “rows” and “columns”.5
Maybe just this washPREONSHATAEI own several of these. However, this grey wash was the most difficult to put together. There were pieces missing and some of the holes were not Pre-drilled.3
KallaxMaromThe wooden pegs broke one shelf. I adapted to make a taller shelf since it broke off. The xtra frame for bottom doesn’t secure tight to furniture, instead it just sits on the frame.2
Worth its weight in goldBennettWe love it !!
I hope this tells the story5

Kallax great for photo albumsBarbaraJallax bookcase shelves are deep enough for even my large photo albums and there is enough space to arrange them well.5
Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
Forests are critical for life on earth
Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.
100% wood from more sustainable sources
At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030
As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.
We accomplish more by working together
For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
Quality and feel
At first glance, KALLAX is a simple shelving unit, but it’s based on a love for details. The unit has smooth surfaces and rounded edges that make it appealing to the eye and enjoyable to touch. We’ve also worked hard to make the shelves align perfectly so you avoid eye-sore gaps, giving the unit a uniform look. Simply put, all of KALLAX is well-thought-out down to the smallest detail and exudes a solid feel of quality – which results in a nicer and more timeless impression.
