Good quality desk, terrible assembly instructionsStephen E.The desk quality fit and finish is very good. The assembly instructions are lacking in clarity and sufficient information. I called the help desk to explain which instructions did not seem to be correct as the top of the cabinets with holes to fasten to the desk top would be on the bottom of the cabinet (see steps 6 and 8). She insisted that is correct and the desk top lays loose on the cabinets. This is not correct. 4 fasteners and a tool are included to fasten the cabinets to the desk top. I installed the top of the cabinets with the holes and it worked. One note. Lining up the holes in the top of the cabinets to the holes on the underside of the desktop is challenging. Some narrative information with the assembly instructions would save a lot of time and fewer calls to the help desk which was completely unhelpful.4
Very pleased!ShellyLove this combo for my desk. Would recommend!5
Great product, well constructed onlySCOTTGreat product, well constructed only took 2 beers to assemble.5
Definitely my favorite desk IDanielleDefinitely my favorite desk I have ever owned. I have one at home and I love it so much I bought a second one for my office at work.5

Very pretty deskKatharinaThe amount of drawers is excellent. I like how the top drawers are more shallow, but the other drawers are deeper. The size of the top is perfect for laying out a book next to your laptop.5
Love the deskSandraThe only thin we struggled with was aligning up the top to the wholes on the drawers. The problem was probably us. But the quality is nice for the price.5
Great Desk!!!KatherineI absolutely love this desk!! It's beautiful and sturdy. It is perfect for my new craft room!! I will definately buy at IKEA again!!5
My favorite place to writeNuria…and so many drawers! Love the compartmentalized nature of the drawers and how I don’t have to dig down to find anything.5
Desk top Lagkapten and Alex drawersKarenLove the combination of these for a desk Love, love them.5

Super Quality Desk at an Affordable PriceRobertInstructions were easy to follow and assembly took about an hour to put together once I unpacked it and sorted the parts. A beautiful, functional desk with lots of room on the tabletop and in the 10 drawers. If you ever need to replace the tabletop it is very easy and the cost is extremely reasonable. The desk comes in several color combinations to choose from which makes it easy to match your room decor. This is an excellent desk for students or those looking for a home office setup. I am very happy with this purchase and decided to buy another desk for my wife too. Kudos to the IKEA team once again! Your ingenuity on how you build products rocks!5
Love thisdania d.Great table5
Ikea forgot to drill holes into drawer unitsDani Z.After painstakingly assembling parts that didn't align with each other, I found that there were no holes to connect the drawer units to the tabletop. Complete waste of my time.1
Never AgainChristian S.After putting together three pieces of furniture from IKEA over the past week I am determined to never buy anything from IKEA again. The instructions are so poorly descriptive it’s honestly impressive how little information they care to share with the customer who purchased their product. The quality of materials is atrocious. So many planks had chunks just hanging off. The alignment of pre-drilled holes was off. I do not understand how a company this big can be so bad. You get what you pay for and I learned my lesson.1
The perfect desk!KimAs an office desk, it the perfect size, beautiful style and more drawers than I can fill. Super easy to put together also. I'm a retired senior citizen and had no trouble at all managing the pieces. Highly recommend getting the rollers (search "Alex rollers") for easy movement but be wary of the section of the product description called "You Might Like" which gives the impression that the Kuggis drawer organizers go with this set. They don't. I ordered two of them and found that they're far too large to fit the Alex drawers, or any other drawers in my house for that matter. Also, it would be nice if the product information provided how much weight the Lagkapten table will bear. I had originally wanted to use this as a sewing console but after I put it together, I didn't think the table would bear the weight of my Husqvarna sewing machine. The table itself is light weight for its size and feel that over time, the weight of the machine will bow the table. So, I'm using it as an office desk.5
The best desk at a reasonable priceChristineI needed a 2nd desk and this is perfect.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 and resource-efficient, 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.
