Quality control needs to be betterShariI'm happy with the desk. It was very easy to put together. I'm disappointed that it arrived with a number of damaged pieces. Nothing worse than picking up a piece as you are building and finding it damaged. Two front drawers had crushed corners. At least 3 of the side drawer pieces had the back corner piece damaged. I decided that since it wouldn't be seen that I didn't want to deal with the hassle of requesting replacements. I did request replacement pieces for the drawers. Customer service was good. I was told it would be a week for the pieces to arrive but they arrived within a few days. The disappointment was one of the replacement pieces had a tiny piece of the laminate chipped off. I give up at this point not worth the hassle to call back. This is my first Ikea purchase. Was expecting better. 3
Nice Desk Eddieit is ok. but it is fake wood 4
Working From HomeAmyThis desk offers me so much more space and organization that makes working from home that much more pleasurable. With its size and functionality, I am able to keep my desk top relatively clear. It was very easy to assemble.5
goodKyleproduct felt like a good product. Drawers were a little hard to open and close but still fine with it. I even bought extra coasters for it just so I can go to Ikea again.4
DeskCarolineJust bought this desk. Looks good, easy to put together. However it smells. I opened the window of the bedroom and the smell is still strong…2
Manufacturing IssueMichelleI bought this desk around 2 months ago, I started setting it up and everything was going fine once I got to the last part which was inserting the drawers I noticed that the track spacing was wrong and all 5 drawers do not fit as it was pictured. I have called customer service over 5 times and was told every time that they were sending new parts, but they never came. I went into the store and they weren’t any help either. This whole process was very frustrating and I will never buy from IKEA again. Money wasted.1

Wonderful Sewing Machine DeskAnnCouldn’t ask for a better sewing machine table. Plenty of drawers and table top space. Could use 2 people to assemble. Otherwise love my white desk!5
LoveFionaThis desk really lives up to the hype. I am using it for a desk/makeup table and it is spacious enough for all of the makeup products I am storing. The drawers are deep. Love this piece.5
A little bit confusing onEvelynA little bit confusing on building but overall a great purchase, I’m very happy with how it turned out.5
Great DeskElizabethEasy to assemble and looks great in my daughters room. She loves it5
Love it easy to putJosephLove it easy to put together lot if space on top and in draws.5
good looking but a bitKhaledgood looking but a bit over priced5
Sturdy and looks sleekAnnikaI’m buying wheels for it the next time I’m near an IKEA because I need it a little higher. The holes for adding those are on the same side tbat it suggests you attach to the top if you are making it into a desk, so we didn’t get the top screwed to drawer sections and, even with the computer equipment weighing it down, the top does slide around a little bit. That being said I’m still satisfied with the purchase. I wanted the versatility to have it be other than a desk if I leave my current position and return these computers. I have another desk for my personal computer. I also have another product from the Alex line so I knew I was getting something sturdy and that the drawers would be on rails, which weren’t difficult to assemble.4

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.
