The best modular productJuanGreat product, you can assemble it as you want, the accessories that you can attach are awesome.5
Stylish, Versatile, AffordableSophiaThe Kallax (and previously the Expedit) series is possibly the best product that Ikea has ever produced. I can't think of a more versatile piece of furniture. Need some book cases? 4x5 Kallax. Liquor cabinet? 4x1 Kallax with a few hacks. Custom desk setup? 2x4 Kallax with some modifications. I say this with first-hand experience, because I personally own a dozen (seriously, literally 12) individual Kallax units of varying sizes and am using them as a linen drawer, art supply case, book case, extra dining-room storage, a modified desk, and a room divider, and more. My apartment is probably 50% Kallax by volume. These things are awesome! Their modern yet simplistic style, and the sheer efficiency of perfectly square cubby holes, make this the swiss army knife of affordable furniture.5
Great for quilting cottonGailI'm using this Kallax cube storage for storing my quilting cotton folded on comic boards. Love it.5
Love KallaxGlendaI have about 10+ in my house, they are in my craft room mainly, they can hold so much! Love them5
Love it - sturdyLisaI love the Kallax because it is so simple and incredibly sturdy.5
Kallax single rowKarenOrdered the Kallax single row. It a great way to store vinyls. Regular size vinyls fit perfectly. Putting unit together was easy and quick. Very satisfied with purchase. Would highly recommend. 5
GreatKristaGreat5
Used this as a horizontal book shelf.RebeccaBought a stand for this to be mounted on and it turned out perfect.5
Great window seat/book shelfMelissaThe product was very easy to assemble. Holds a generous amount of books.5
Brackets not spaced for wall studsMadalynnI think this shelf is perfect. I only wish the brackets were spaced for wall studs. They the way they are, only one mounting screw hits a stud. The other side must rely on a dry wall anchor.4
The Standard for Storing RecordsJohnThe Kallax is the standard for record storage. This product is built sturdily, and it is attractive. It's a great addition to any music room.5
Nice UnitIanLove the skinny design - fits in nicely next to my stack washer/dryer unit.5
So many uses!AmyI have many of the Kallax of different sizes in our house. It is great that with the addition of doors or drawers and new hardware you can make it fit into so many different styles and uses!! I do wish that there were more insert options in the colors other than white, or the abiltiy to have a door that will cover 2 squares at once, but other than that this is great!5
Fast from box to useGloriaI’ve purchased a few variations of the Kallax and they are quick and easy to put together. Just a few minutes from the box to putting it to good use.5
Nice book case!RayEasy to assemble!5
Simple, easy and quickSamnice shelving unit using in the laundry.5
Perfect fitJulieI needed something for storage that would fit under my large window. I was rearranging my craft room and didn't have enough storage. Kallax + bins and done! I'll put a cushion on top and the cat will be able to look out at squirrels all day!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

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.
