Great Office OrganizingKellyI turned it sideways and use it in my home office for organizing bills, papers and home stuff. Love the different sized cubbies that are better suited for an in box or tray to gather clutter. Easy to put together with the help of another person. It’s larger than I expected from the online photos.5

Sewing Room UpgradeStephanieI bought two of these shelving units to make a cutting and storage table for my sewing room. We placed them on their sides and screwed a table top on top. It turned out great! I love the different sized shelves and it is a perfect height for cutting.5

Simple and elegantJongWell made and sturdy, while having the elegant look.5
Kallax Storage unitsSueI have been looking for a new crafting table. We purchased 2 Kallax units, laid them on their side, and attached a table top to them. It's working out really well. Tons of cubbies for storage, and sturdy enough to handle what I've thrown at them.5
Very uniqueNickThe best thing about this unit is the different style shelves5
Great multi use cabinet!ShirleyWe turned this on its side to use as a tv stand in our gameroom. Turning on the side raised the height of the tv without having to wall mount. It provides a lot of storage for game consoles, movies and games.5
KallaxMelissaI have this in my kitchen for snack containers. Easy to see what you have instead of in a cupboard.5
Purchased 5, Love these so much!AndreaI have had one of these for over ten years and through 3-4 moves, one even to a different state. They are very sturdy. When my son got his own apartment I bought 2 for him and most recently purchased 2 more for a vacation home. They make the best television stand for us with tons of storage for either baskets, books, gaming consoles or to display trinkets and such. I hope they make this unit always. This is probably my most favorite ikea item literally ever.5
MeasurementsTERRI V.Can anyone please post the measurements of the individual cubes.5

Easy to build an forgiving enough to correct any assembly mistakes…. warning: the shelving has an EXACT way to assemble.5

Looks great - but unless you attach to wall, it"s wobbly.ANDREWSure, it looks great, but it is wobbly as can be. Instructions state you must attach it to the wall, which I'm sure would help, but I'm not going to do. Assembly is pretty straight forward.3

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.

What is particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
