Small but perfectYomery G.I love this desk top. I needed a desk that was wide enough to have space to work but also sleek looking and didn’t take up too much space. It’s very easy to clean with just a wipe.5
Solid Table TopCHUCKWell worth the money. If supported correctly can hold allot of weight. I use as my PC desk with two 32" monitors on a center stand - no problem.5
Directions were very minimal drawingsMARCYDirections were very minimal drawings not that accurate really requires two people to put together which I’ve never had that before3
MELLTORPFanchonGreat product. Works great with MELLAX5
Nice tableMike T.We read the reviews of screw puncturing the top of table and need to use a cardboard, etc but we managed to set up as per normal process and we have no issue. Installation was easy. Nice, sturdy table.4
Screws punched through surface (like everyone else)Daniel H.If everyone is making the same mistake, it's not our fault. The consequence for missing some small print in the instruction shouldn't be a massive hole in the tabletop.1
ScrewedYvonneThe screws that came with the legs for this desk top were too long and went through the board. Other than that the Melltorp is nice and wide looks great and seems sturdy.2
Great table topJ and NLove it and love that it's scratch proof esp for cat nails. Only thing is i was looking to purtchase the marbel style as it says online but the store only carrys white sad face5
Cleans easily, stays white thus far!MarsieSMy husband and I recently moved to a smaller place and needed a smaller table for the smaller space. We liked the white Melltorp tabletop with the Melltorp legs as the table is visually light and was fairly inexpensive. I was nervous about staining with getting a white tabletop; however, the tabletop surface is easy to clean and has yet to show any stains after three months of daily use. We typically use placemats under our dishes when eating' but, the times we have had spills/food droplets fall on the white surface they have clean up easily.5
SampeOnly thing when I screw the first screw when all way to the other side. I forgot to put the spaces. Please I think on instructions should be aware that part.3
Nightmare to put together.Ellie RavinskyThe table is wonderful. Very sturdy and very solid. The only downside was it is a nightmare to put together. I literally needed to hold it in three different places in three different ways in order to put one screw and that would hold the table in the legs together. It did not recommend having two people and it really should.3
leg application is maddeningCurran80We bought a few of these tables. The initial assembly was fine, until it was time to attach the legs. The way the screws have to go in to leg/sidebar positioning is nearly impossible. It has to be just so, or else the screws won't catch. This is maddening. I have put together countless pieces of Ikea furniture throughout my life but this was by far the worst EVER. I would pay an extra $30 for this table to make the assembly easier.2
Love the quality of this table for the money.maryelisThis is a super sturdy table and we are very happy with the purchase.5
Great feature!KstanyI bought this a month ago and am so happy that i did5
GreatMamunI’m happy to buy ikea things4
Good price. Thin laminate.FriendoI like my MELLTORP table, but the laminate is too thin and was worn off on some of the edges.3
Exactly what I wantedLaughing_CatThe tabletop fit EXACTLY where I wanted it to. Attaching the legs was a little finicky but I got it figured out. Really really satisfied with the purchase.5
Great table - lousy toolMister RonThe table came with an essentially useless wrench that couldn't fit in the tight corners. Luckily, I had a ratchet set, and found a perfectly fitting ratchet. The instructions had a picture of a hand tossing the wrench in a trash can, which I indeed did.2
xSrgPretty decent table. Don’t forget to follow the instructions. Learnt the hard way, good thing tabletop is replaceable.5
Lauraike15Sure! Im happy with this product5

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 particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look.
