Absolutely OBSESSED!Candice L.My husband and I each got one of these desks for our den. Each of the Alex drawers took about 30 minutes to put together, and then screwing in the metal bar was a breeze. Highly recommended if you have the space for it!5
PerfectJanetI really love this desk set up. It is perfect for office/sewing room. No more putting my sewing machine away and if needed I have a nice long table for my project.5
Best desk everRHIANNONSo much space and lots of drawer space!5
Great deskChristopherEasy to assemble! Lots of space on top! Drawers are massive!5
Well constructedAnnetteUnlike some other drawer units I have purchased from IKEA over the year, ALEX seems to be rock solid in its construction. I don't think I will see the drawer bottoms start to slide out of position like others in the past. Great unit. Easy assembly.5
Love it!TammyThis was very easy to assemble and I loved how clear the instructions were!5

Beware bad qualityPaulette B.The coating on the tabletop is already peeling off after less than 2 weeks of use. I do not recommend.1
As expected. Drawer assembly aHollyAs expected. Drawer assembly a little tedious.5
Nice but rough deliveryDustinThe desk itself is extremely nice and would definitely recommend! Tons of space and has a very good modern look/feel to it. I would give it 5 stars, however, the delivery experience was awful. First, my delivery got cancelled and had to be restarted (another 2 and a half weeks) for unknown reasons. Second, when I took delivery and opened the box, I discovered one of the drawers was damaged on its side. Looked as if a small heavy object was dropped onto it and busted the wood material. It was not significant but definitely noticeable. Luckily it was to the side that is against the wall so it is not seen, but still… very unfortunate. And third, the top of the desk is NOT the color/material I ordered. I ordered black on black. But the desk top I received was gray. Very nice desk and would definitely recommend to others, but my delivery was terrible.3
Home Work DeskVictoriaI like this desk! Just the right size for my PC, keyboard, 2 monitors, some work space, and a very large orange cat (I could easily fit a 3rd monitor if I wanted one). While I suppose you could put this together yourself, I always find that 2 people are better than one for going faster AND moral support.5
Love my new crafting desk!SusanIt’s just perfect for the small room I use to craft in. Great surface space to spread out. Easy to organize all the drawers with all my stuff. Hides all the little supplies and plenty of space under the desk to hang rulers, paper trimmer and mats. I love it!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.


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.
