Storage UnitMary M.Very sturdy and looks great in the room. I am using it for craft storage so I also purchased some of the drona inserts.5
Nice large shelfKen D.Nice large shelf4
Great storage optionCarlyn C.I do stained glass and this is perfect for storing all the different colors and tools I need to keep my shop organized5
Nice Architectural PieceTeresa G.This unit is amazing for a small apartment and was actually easy to assemble if you do so on the floor and watch the video. I finished it on my own, and I am 68 years old female albeit a little handy! What is really nice about it is that it is simple and showcases books and objects wonderfully! Make sure to attach to wall; I used a non-wall damaging product from Amazon.5
Great ShelvingTodd S.We use these for lots of applications, the latest to organize T-Shirts and clothing instead of using a dresser.5
Nice and Sturdy!Regina W.It is visually appealing, and it holds and organizes everything that I need it to.5
Great addition to my crafts roomJohn R.Nice way to store all my different materials and books.5
StorageLynne b.Handy5
Get it!Annie L.I love this system! It looks great as a wall divider or just a display. Very versatile!5
Perfect pieceBETH H.This had easy to explain directions, was easy to put together, and it helps me keep organized.5
Office dividerAle V.Easy to build look good5
Great choice for usErni S.We bought the Four high by five across Kallax and 2 two by five Kallaxs for our needs. The small ones can be put together by one person but do need two people to lift on to the base (which we chose to purchase for one of the 4x5 Kallax). The larger Kallax does require two people to put together and to put up on its base (we chose to purchase the base). The second 2x5 Kallax was put on top of the 4x5. Because we have baseboard trim, everything was anchored to the walls. It was great that the wall anchors were included.5
Update to Questionable Quality reviewMelissa T.Ok this big daddy does not want to work out for me. The holes aren’t deep enough for the dowels and can’t be drilled deeper. I’ve had to cut all the dowels down 1/4” inch which is completely absurd. The smaller 8 cube came together easily, but not this 16 cube. I’m literally traumatized. So quality is not questionable anymore but clearly lacking!1
Easy to assemble and strongJanet S.This piece holds lots of itsms5
Pieces were cracked but was able to make it workJeff P.See above , concealed damage disappointed in product1
Questionable QualityMelissa T.Bought these to match one that I’ve had for 5 years. The quality has obviously lessened in the last few years, as these newer ones are more prone to cracking and flaking. Be very careful putting them together. Use soap to help the dowels go in - 80% of the holes were just enough too small that I needed a mallet to put the piece on. Not just a little tap with a hammer. And use a block of wood between the hammer and the shelf. Make the holes a tiny bit bigger!4
Sturdy and dependableEileen O.So happy we found these! Downsized into smaller home 1/2 size so needed to declutter and organize. These are amazingly strong for fabric and scrapbooking books and supplies. Highly recommend! Husband was even surprised of sturdiness when put together.5
Does the JobMeredith C.I got this for my studio it’s unfortunate they raised the price so much4
Wonderful sturdy shelf organizer with flawsDAWN J.I love how sturdy this piece is and that I can get organized now. It has very clear instructions to put it together. I have owned quite a few IKEA pieces of furniture like this one. The have all been great for a good price and well made. I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the “faux wood” stuff that covers the compressed wood underneath. We always use a rubber mallet to hammer in the dowels and hammer the ends of the boards to get them to go in place. This unit had the “faux wood” stuff peeling up very easily and in multiple places. I have never had that happen…ever before. I can only assume that IKEA is using cheaper materials or something which is very disappointing and doesn’t make for the prettiest final product.3
Great StorageJennifer F.I got rid of my two smaller bookshelves and use this as a room divider as well. Assembly was easy and pretty fast compared to other large furniture pieces I've gotten here.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.
