Great ValueCharlesWe needed a small desk and this was perfect. The light we ordered with it works great too.5

Great sewing tableJudiTook awhile to put together but very happy with the final product.5
Horrible instructions, but nice desk when doneMelissaI am a single person with a muscle disease and had assemble this myself . I was in tears when I realized that the process to attach the table top for this specific combination of the Lagkaten/Alex was Not clear in directions in step 6 that I needed to make sure the top of piece the drawer unit exposed the necessary holes that would later connect to the table top. I had to redo the unit as I had put that piece on the bottom of the drawer unit (which in fact is what you would do if it was stand alone). Then it was extremely difficult to attach it to the tabletop. Ended up watching a YouTube video that showed a gentlemen giving a few tips for this but it was still very difficult .4
Loved it, at first LaurenThe desk is very sturdy and pretty. Although after a few months, it’s starting to chip and I have not been rough with it at all. Very disappointing. 4
Sturdy and Practical DeskMarkWe bought this desk for our daughter this Christmas and it was very straightforward putting together. My only comment would be providing a latch to prevent the top desk panel from sliding as it sits on top of the file cabinet.5

I bought two for myBethI bought two for my kids and it works great for our needs. I would have given it 5 stars if the top was glossy so markers could be wiped off easier.4

PerfectCarolFits in the room, lots of storage/drawer space.5
Perfect desk!NatalieIt was easy to assemble, desk looks very nice, great quality!5
Needed a drill to assembleKatieThe drawers seem to be good quality but as others have said, the tabletop is flimsy. The holes in the tabletop were not deep enough to screw the screws into for the legs. First I thought I wasn't strong enough and that was why the screws wouldn't go past a certain point, so then I tried using a drill and that almost stripped the screws. I had to actually use a drill bit to make the holes deeper. After drilling each of the holes deeper, I still had trouble getting each of the screws in correctly and some were still stripped. It will work for now, but it is a one-time use as the screws are stripped and not able to be taken out. I will never be able to switch the legs to the other side of the desk if I wanted to which is one of the reasons I bought this desk.2
Love This Desk!TanyaI bought this desk to use for college. I have it set up with the ELLOVEN monitor stands and I still have enough room on the desk for my books! It wasn't hard to put together on my own. Highly recommend 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.
