Product details

Each table has its own unique character due to the distinctive grain pattern.

The ash veneer table surface and solid birch legs add a warm, natural feeling to your room

Ash is a naturally durable material. The surface has been made even more hard-wearing by a protective coat of lacquer, which also helps it keep its natural wood feel.

Easy to assemble as each leg has only one screw.

Drawer stops prevent the drawers from being pulled out too far.

Desk for homeSiu H.ITs a nice desk. I wish the price is less expensive.4
Simple and functionalXIAOXINGThis is a second study desk for my 8-year old, located in the bedroom. So the slim size is just right for that purpose.5
Great Desk for Home OfficeErika V.I bought the Lisabo desk for my home office because I love my Lisabo side table so much. As before, the desk was super easy to put together and it looks great in my space. The only concern I have is -- compared to the side table -- the veneer on top of the desk seems much cheaper in quality, like it's not been 'sealed' completely flat. I can 'hear' the veneer when I touch the surface.4
Nice small deskLisaI bought mine in the close out area and there is a small rough spot on the surface. It’s a great size and is sturdy.4
LisaboPAULAFits perfect. Great size for my small bedroom. Easy to put together.5
Good basuc table but no leg adjustmentHEATHERThe table went together fairly easily but uses an odd expanding circular piece. There is however no adjuster at the end of the legs whether there is an imbalance because of the legs or the floor. We were able to provide our own and the table has worked well since4
Looks great! Almost perfect!KenjiroI love this desk. Feels solid and looks great! Something about the drawer I feel could be polished. It doesn't smoothly come out or go back in.. It also hits my knee. If it's going to be placed in the middle, couldn't we just have had a bigger wider drawer?4

Space saver deskPatriciaThis desk is beautiful to look at and designed for small spaces. Despite the fact it is not terribly deep it has a very functional width. I put it in my guest bedroom.5
Suitable for small roomTatsuyaMy room is small but this is suitable for such a small room. Additionally it’s a good texture. Speaking of “simple is the best “, this is the best, In my opinion.5
Exactly what we wantedRebeccaWe wanted a functional and beautiful table for remote work, and this table met our expectations! It is wide enough for a monitor and laptop, is sleek and beautiful, and can be moved easily. It is also multi purpose. Stable and easy to put together. Very happy with this choice.5
Simple, solid desk.DARRENThis is the easiest assembling desk I have ever found. The geometry of the legs makes it more stable than a typical desk. I got one of these for one of my sons, both of whom are ... hard on their furniture. It did so well, I just put together a second one for his (even more accidentally destructive) little brother.5
FunctionalDougEasy to assemble. Minimal, simple , clean. I think painting the legs might make it even more cool. Most likely will keep for a few years until IKEA designs something else 💚💙4
Great work deskMIKEVery solid, perfect size for the space we needed it for. Fits both my laptop and desktop computers along with keyboard and mouse, and still has plenty of room for my coffee coaster.5
Not that nicePrestonExpected something better, really disappointed. Trying to figure out a time to drive the 4 hours to be able to return it to the closest Ikea1
Great tableMARTALove this. Very easy to put together.5

Sustainable life at home

Handcrafted feeling, modern technique

LISABO table has an organic shape and bevelled edges, a design that previously could only be made with solid wood. We wanted to find a more environmentally friendly and less expensive solution and developed a technique using solid wood around the edges and wood slats inside the table top. The construction makes the table very strong, so you can use it for many years. The natural beauty comes through thanks to a specially developed lacquer that also makes the surface durable. A real wood feeling and a unique table – without time-consuming upkeep!

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 veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.

Designer thoughts

"The idea behind LISABO was to create a series with the distinct feeling of wood, a floating expression and durable, easy to assemble construction. The round shapes and slanted edges create a hand-crafted look and we chose a matte lacquer on the ash veneer so the furniture will keep its natural wood feel. Each piece in the series work beautifully together or individually.”
