Looks nice but cheaply madeSeanDesk looks nice but built cheaply3
Gave me a damaged desk and refused to help or be accommodating in anywayJessica B.Wish I could attach pictures to show the damage. Ordered online and went to pickup in a store and ikea gave us a damaged desk. When we got back to our home the desk was damaged in multiple places. Spent over 2.5 hours driving (god knows how much that costs gas wise now) only to find the desk damage. Wouldn’t have been a big deal if they were willing to be more flexible in terms of helping to replace. But when asked if I could get a replacement shipped, I was told that was not an option and had to do the 2.5 hour drive again for a damaged desk THEY gave me. With how much I spent with the desk and on gas to begin with (not to mention the amount of time it took) over a damaged desk ikea supplied me, the least they could have done was ship it to us. Disgusted by lack of customer support. Save your time and money and go anywhere else. Ikea is just your average money hungry corporation with horrendous quality and zero consideration for their customers.1
The best desk for a college studentPatrick H.Super sturdy, very simple and straightforward to put together and allows for a lot of room to have multiple computers, textbooks and such lying on it. The cabinet is very deep and allows practically anything to fit in there and doesn’t feel cheap, a lot of weight can be put on them. The drawer is nice as well, super simple to remove for cleaning or anything else. I just have a bunch of miscellaneous things in there (gaming controller, iPad, a couple pads of sticky notes, etc) The one thing I have ran into is when putting cold drinks down on the desk, the condensation and “water ring” it creates causes the wood to bubble up a bit and make it a bit uneven, would for sure drive some people with OCD crazy. Just be mindful of that and make sure you have a dedicated coaster for the desk. I’ve owned it for five years already and the finish is holding just fine and as a 6’5” male, I can stand on the desk without even hearing/feeling a crack or anything. 10/10 desk, you won’t be disappointed5
Difficulty assemblingStephen S.We have purchased and built several IKEA bookcases and desks over the year. The Malm desk shown here is really difficult to assemble. Instructions are vague. Thanks God for You Tube videos4
Malm DeskMayingThis desk is perfect and easy to install.5
Large DeskSandraVery nice desk*much larger than I anticipated*went together easily. As an older woman alone, I have no way to return it, but make sure you need a desk this large before you purchase it.5
ideal for my needsTamiI needed a large top surface plus some storage - and I this gave me all of it, plus a hidden shelf ideal for concealing plugs.5

Great DeskAndrewBought this to replace an older desk after rearranging my house and I love it. The drawer and cabinet are a great size, the desktop is thick enough to hold a lot of weight without being too bulky, and is overall perfect for what I need it for.5
Strong & Durable!RochelleThe perfect size, very strong, durable, pretty & functional! The perfect desk for my work from home environment.5
Perfect for work from homeSUSANHigh quality affordable desk. Perfect size for work from home.5
Love this deskJoEllenThis is a great product. Assembled with relative ease, and so far has stood up to my teenage son’s heavy use. The only challenge we’ve had is finding a monitor arm that clips onto the back edge. The cord management/organizer tray gets in the way of most products that are on the market right now. Did finally find a product at Home Depot.5
Perfect Choice!ConnieThis desk was easy to assemble and was the perfect choice for my need. Love the tray in the back to stash extra electronic cords.5
Great size. Easy to build.SarahMy mom got me this desk for a Christmas gift for my new home that has an office. I work from home and the amount of the desk space on top is great. I don’t have to move my printer from place to place anymore it can just sit on top. I do think I will get some slide out organizers for the bottom cabinet because it is quite deep and I don’t want to waste any space.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.
