Nice desk for the priceMarkNice desk, easy to put together and looks nice. A good value for the price (about $160)5
My teen loves itMarySolid desk at a great price. Wish it had just one more drawer for storage (say, under & along the desk top). Really impressed with the quality so far!5
GoodamberIt’s nice price wise4
assembly was funShehzadassembly was fun4
goodjohanna J.It was a little difficult to assemble because the pieces are not listed. It also has some parts of the paper with which it is upholstered, a little detached, but it looks very nice assembled. It is big and elegant, a dream.4
My granddaughter is very pleasedAmberMy granddaughter is very pleased with her new desk. The shipping cost was nearly the price of the desk so as the purchaser, I am not pleased.5
Great DeskDarleneJust wish it had a file drawer. It was so easy to put together. Has a beautiful finish.5
Surprisingly great choice for small officesLisaThe width might be small, but unless you intend to be at your desk with your knees in separate zip codes, this is perfect for a small office. Fits multiple screens, keyboard etc without a problem.5
VERY Hard to put togetherKatherineThe desk is great - do yourself a favor-get it assembled- took entire weekend to complete it.3
I liked this design theAdrianI liked this design the most based on my own personal taste. I like that it is simple, a large writing surface for computer, documents, printer, etc. The only small few issues is that I wish the table was higher. I have my Orfjall chair on the lowest height and I am 5'8" and this desk seems a bit too low for me. Maybe if it was around 12" or more higher that would help. Also I wish this desk had an option to add on another Malm cabinet directly onto the left side of the desk.4
Poor build qualityCarlos A.first off lets start with the wood quality, ive had the swinging door fall out about 2-3 times I had to reinforce it with better screws. not the sliding drawer, it gets stuck and i have to shove it in so it can close properly. I would not recomend spening the $250 on this trash.2

Great ItemCharlesQuality piece, easy to assemble. Definitely met our need for the space we had in mind. Delivery was efficient and courteous too.5
Very nice and sturdyVanessaVery nice and sturdy4
Turned into my wife’s quilting machine dress.ALLENGave her more table space for quilting. The Manual is a little hard to decipher specially looking at it upside down. End result turned out fine not too keen on the 3 large lock keys to secure the top of the table. Otherwise it works. 👍4
For my daughterJastonBought my daughter a desk for her to do her school work she absolutely loves. She had more fun putting it together.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 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.
