Have these all over the houseKevinLove all the options with the cube storage. This one is extra cool because I grabbed them on a clearance sale!5
Kallax shelfClaudetteLooks great. I bought 4 in various sizes.5
KALLAX shelf UNITAppiKallax Shelf Unit is suitable for any family home. We got 4*3 racks and everything is perfect. But I want to bring notice to the IKEA team, it needs more elaborate description for manual, which created some confusion while assembling. 4
Looks great, but impossible to put together.ChristineOn some of my small square pieces, the pegs/dowels got stuck and broke before inserting another board. After IKEA sent two new boards and pegs when the unit was completed. The last screw kept turning and turning, it would not enter the final board. Now my kallax is in pieces and the dowels/pegs are of course stuck in the boards. It was quite difficult to build a 3x4 unit. It would be nice to pay extra and have it assembled at the store, but no taskrabbit for me, fore I live one hour away. The entire unit will be returned. I am very disappointed in the product.3
Perfect for my spaceOrsolyaThe shelving unit is practical and decorative. It's also versatile, so you can adapt it to your needs easily.5

Love my shelves!ElaineEasy to put together, used the customizer tool to figure out exactly what I wanted.5
Great bookcaseErikaThis is a great bookcase. Very sturdy and looks great. It was easy to put together. There are some spots you need 2 people to get the shelves in tight. I got the stand to put it on and it upgrades the look.5
Perfect StorageElaineWhat 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!!BritneyFits cubes that are 13 x 13 and works wonderfully. Love this product!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.
