IKEA deskTanyaI'm a teacher and it's the perfect size for me to do some work at home. It was super easy to assemble.5
Great desk!JohnLooks really great. Such clean lines5
Problem with veneerKimberly H.This desk is a great size, very cute, very easy to assemble but once I assembled the desk and flipped it over (so it is standing upright), I noticed that the bamboo veneer is lifting on the surface of the desk. This is not damage (packaging without blemish) but a quality issue of the bamboo veneer. I'm super disappointed because IKEA is not close by. Ugh.3
LILLÅSENMATTYVery good. Need adjustable feet.5
Excellent deskLannyThis desk is perfect for my needs, I use a laptop holder with a stand for two monitors and this desk is perfect. Z the drawers are large enough for 8x11 printouts, but used for essentials. It’s a good quaility desk, easy to assemble (fast) and very sturdy. Excellent for small spaces or a more minimalist work setup. This was a downsize for me from a vintage LARGE metal office/teacher’s desk,
I cannot recommend enough this desk.5
LILLÅSENKevinA very good desk that is light to move around. The only downside is the drawers4
So far, so goodRussellIt was extremely easy to assemble and appears to have been well made.5
Nice convenient small desk perfect for working from homeDavid Y.I've had the desk for three years and have assembled and disassembled it multiple times and has been very easy to do. It's easy to move and surprisingly durable. The only problem is that if you use the drawers frequently, the knobs might fall out. Other than that, great durable desk at an affordable price that is easy to transport.5
Love it!AlexandraBeautifully sleek and looks great! Very happy with my purchase!5
Looks niceKari C.It’s exactly as described but a small desk and perfect sized for our small space. It does not sit exactly level, though. It’s very stylish and was easy to put together.4

DeskSandyEasy to assemble
Super happy with choice5
Perfect for a small roomJules846We use this desk in a very small room. It has enough work surface for a PC and the drawers help keep item off the surface. This was a better option than just a table. Open design looks great in the small space. My 13 year old son was able to assemble on his own very easily.5
hannah205Great quality desk! Exactly how it looks in the picture.5
Cute minimalist desksilver owlNice looking, good size for laptop and papers, easy to assemble, love the bamboo/white combination4
Clean, Modern, Beautiful DeskBreezyBayAreaGirlI bought this a month ago and I am so happy I did. The top is one solid piece made out of wood, not the normal particle board most things are made out of from Ikea. The little drawers come already in the desk, the only assembly was putting the legs on. It was very easy to assemble. The only draw back is the wood is very soft, and one of the corners came with a dent in 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 bamboo?
Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA, we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
“A sense of home, more than a sense of office. That was my starting point when I began designing LILLÅSEN desk. The idea is to inspire a creative space anywhere at home, rather than decorating a home office. Angled legs set the design apart from traditional desks and because most of us just need a small laptop to perform our jobs, I also made LILLÅSEN a little bit smaller than a regular desk. Easy to fit in at home – and to feel comfortable at.”
