Love it!!LisaLove this piece! Using it as a work table in my new craft room. Works perfectly!! Be careful putting it together. I wound up upside down although I was meticulous in following the directions I thought. Couldn’t get it apart so had to flip it do get drawers to fit properly.5

I love this set up.RyanneI love this set up. I would say the only problem is that you could see a footprint on the box and the side of the drawers was broke but it’s up against the wall to it’s all good.5
Lagkapten Desk TopLynseyAs a crafter, I was not expecting this product to stand up to everything it will see. However I did not except the coating to peel off so easily. I removed a sticker from a shirt to apply vinyl to it and stuck the sticker to the end of the desk top so it could be added back to the shirt and when removing it from the desk it peeled the grey top off.2
Great deskDeborahThis was very easy to put together. I am 74 and J put this together by myself.5

Nice deskMichelleI bought one of these desks for each of my kids rooms. The drawers are really simple to put together. However lining up the top of the drawers with the predrilled holes on the bottom of the desktop is very difficult. Needed my husband to help with that part. Good solid quality just like the dresser and table we have from over 20 years ago.4
Exactly what I neededVictoriaI used this as a replacement sewing table and i love it! Great use of space and the drawer are perfect. Only down side was assembly time but I am sure there are ways around that.4
Legs are too short and desk top flexesKerrieOnce attached to the drawer unit, the desk top flexed upwards and is not level. The end opposite the drawers is about an inch higher. I took the wheels off the drawer unit and loosened the screws attaching the desktop, hoping this might create slack. It didn’t. Now the back leg is too short and the top leg is extended as far as it can go. It would be nice to have longer leg extensions. My house was also built in 1980, but the floor appears to be level when using a leveling tool.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 constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
