Pleased!MaricelaHappy with the shelf and desk unit. Have plenty of space for storage and virtual learning.5
Additional spaceshikilaWe purchased this hutch to go over my daughters desk in her dorm room. We did not attach it to the desk but slipped it between the wall and desk and it fit great. It gave my daughter the vertical space she needed in her dorm. The dry erase board is good for her to write reminders or quick notes. I think she actually uses it for her daily schedule and the little niches hold a plant/markers/and tools(calculator, etc.)5
PERFECT FOR MY NEEDSshedevil2359It completed the look and function of my craft room5
My grand daughter loves this!KalCIt looks great on her desk and is perfect for her needs. It was easy to put together but I recommend a hand held electric screwdriver. In addition I attached the unit to the wall with a small bracket.5
Pretty Great!Julia1234123This piece is beautiful on the desk. It was pretty easy to assemble and has good storage. I noticed that there is a piece that looks like it could be a dry erase board but I don't want to mess up the piece finding out.5
Chai_masalaThis provided extra storage space in a small room. Skirting boards meant the desk isn't flush to the wall, but we weren't prepared for the instability. It REALLY needs to be flush to the wall. We ended up getting mending plates from the hardware store and secured the sides of the shelf to the desk too. No more instability. Also it's not clear if it's a dry erase board or just a magnetic board. It doesn't say dry erase anywhere, but in some of the pictures it is definitely used as a dry erase board. We found it hard to erase the IKEA dry erase markers completely.3
Perfect add onCarioca61Glad we bought it , the perfect touch to complete my daughter's room5
Added shelving to table topMarcia SueUnit not only gave me more storing space it gives a completed look to the table top. Well worth the money.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.
"My idea with the MICKE series was to simplify everything we do with our computers and mobile phones in today's high-tech world. Like keeping in touch with friends, downloading films and music, working or printing out tickets. The goal was to create a real dream product with maximum functions in a minimum space. One smart thing is the built-in cable management, so you can hide away all the cables. Another is that all the parts have the same depth and height so everyone can create their own favorite combination."
