Perfect StorageElaine J.What else can you say about the perfect storage solution? I bought 2 sets and turned one vertical and one horizontal. I am happy that I bought the feet for them separately. I wanted to make sure I liked them first, so I bought the feet separately in case I wanted to take them back. I got the light brown color and the darker blue inserts. Best storage for my scrapbook room. The 12x12 paper fits perfectly!5
Love it!!Britney T.Fits cubes that are 13 x 13 and works wonderfully. Love this product!5

Kallax for home office and living roomCLAUDETTE R.I purchased three Kallax 3x4 units...two for my husband's home office storage and the third for the living room. I love the look of the cubes and they are very sturdy. I gave it 4 stars because each unit had at least one hole that did not line up or was too large and prevented pulling the joints together tightly. I had to re-drill or use glue and toothpicks to get the screw to grab and hold.4
Great multipurpose furnitureFarah W.Great multipurpose furniture, easy to assemble, style fits with already existing furniture and decor.5
So good we came back for more!Lisa M.We initially bought a Kallax last year to replace a bookshelf that was falling apart. We use it for displaying action figures, girlpla, and gunpla, and it's perfect for that. So perfect, in fact, that we returned and bought two more units for other rooms in our house, and will likely get another one or two eventually. Easy to assemble, looks great, and holds a LOT of stuff for display.5
So sturdyCHRISTIANA O.We got this to use as storage for our kids clothes. We were shocked with how thick the wood is. It is so sturdy and we don’t worry about the kids breaking a shelf. I was able to put this together on my own but it was tough. It would be better with 2 people because of how heavy and awkward it is to move around.5
Not worth itSANDRA R.I have been buying Kallax shelf since they first opened their store’s in Germany. So, many years. I used them in the garage, kids room and living room. The little cubbies are very useful and versatile. Over the years I noticed the shelf getting smaller and smaller. But now it’s enough. I will not buy them again. I will return these after coming back from my vacation. They are so not worth the money. Instructions are easy to follow and Putting them together was easy except that some of the dowels would just break off so easily, they feel like big toothpicks. I was not able to pull the broken ones out. They would just crumple as soon as my pliers touched them. The entire shelf is so very light, it feels like I am using thick cardboard to assemble it. If you have children or pets you will definitely have to mount it to the wall. As a consumer, at some point I have to say this is just cheap s… once put together forget about taking it apart….1
PERFECT 4 ME!!AlexisThis cubby storage unit is PERFECT for what I needed! I plan to get another one just like this and a smaller one for my crafting & sewing room! THANKS IKEA!💚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.
