Perfect For Our ClosetDanaWe purchased this for our guest bedroom/Office closet. It was easy enough to put together, especially after viewing a YouTube tutorial. I managed that task alone in fact. The quality is great for what we’ll be needing it for, which is to store office supplies, craft supplies, etc. We purchased a few of the baskets that slide in to the squares, along with one divider for reams of paper. We are very happy with the end result, and highly recommend this product.5
The Billy Bookcases are betterJustinI wanted to get the Billy Bookcases. Online it said they were in stock. Even at the store it said they were in stock, but they weren't. Since I do not live close to the store, I did not want to waste my trip and so I settled for buying the Kallax bookcases instead. I bought 4 of them, all different sizes. I was very disappointed. Regardless of size they are held together with 8 screws and wooden dowls. The wooden dowls do not fit well into the holes. Since they are a few inches long but thin, a few of them broke. Luckily I have tools and my own dowl jig so I drilled them out, widened the holes and used bigger dowls. I also had to use a rubber mallet to tap the dowls fully into the holes. I then had to also use the mallet to tap everything together because I could not push everything together snuggly and I'm pretty big. I eventually got everything together but it was a lot more work than it needed to be. They can either use thicker dowls and/or drill their holes ever so slightly bigger so everything will fit together easily. I never had these problems when assembling their Billy bookcases of which I have 12 or 13 of.2
Love it! A great wall filler.michaelBought 2 units. They look great filling my wall. Still working on filling the space up in all the cubes. Have planned the stereo on top which is easily accessable by the adults and far enough from the young kids.... Easy enough to assemble and nice quality5
Attractive storage solution for smallRobinAttractive storage solution for small living space5
Sleek organizerNonaI needed to consolidate two pieces of old furniture into one and went with the Kallax. I already had one unit in my craft room for yarn. This one would house knitting projects, DVDs and miscellaneous items in the room I spent evenings watching TV while knitting. Love how comfortable the room looks now. The only drawback is waiting for one of the boxes for it to come back in stock.5

Another great Ikea productSusanneThis Kallax works perfect for the area in need of organization. Easy to assemble & it looks great. The box was too heavy for us to take upstairs to assemble, so we just took the pieces out of the boxes & easily carried them upstairs to put together. Looks GREAT!5

Our take on wood

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.
