So happy with purchase.Sonya G.We've had this island for almost 3 months now and absolutely love it. It took 2 of us a couple hours to put together, but no real complications. We treated the wood immediately and also a few times over the first couple of weeks, and now just once a month. It looks gorgeous. Great quality and looks great in our kitchen. Absolutely love the extra counter space and the storage too. Would definitely recommend.5
Good quality for IKEALaurieGood quality for IKEA5
2nd one, loved the first oneHildaI've had 1 for about 6 years and it has served me very well. It's sturdy and very well made. The drawers are very deep. I made some changes in my kitchen and decided an additional one would look great.5
Love this island more than I love my kidsSUSANNAHOk, so I don’t love it THAT much, but it is 100% the best furniture item I have ever purchased and it’s both beautiful and practical in every way. So much storage space and it’s so sturdy! I’m in love with a kitchen island.5
LOVE IT!!Verified BuyerWe bought this to give us a prep area in our kitchen. It works perfectly. The drawers hold all our utensils, one shelf our pots & pans, the other shelf our mixing bowls. Everything is in one place to cook. LOVE IT!!5
Exactly what I neededSiobhanI love this island it is perfect for my kitchen. Great storage, loving the drawers. The wood does skew yellow hopefully that will fade with time.5
WonderfulLoriI just wish the shelves were actually adjustable. Meaning you can adjust the height of the shelf not just which one goes where.5
Love this table!SUSANWe purchased this to add counter space and storage to our rental home. It's fabulous! We use it every day. The storage shelves are great. It was easy for 2 of us to assemble. Very sturdy and looks great!5
Like it,SonamLike it,4
Good solid feel and look.KRYSGood solid feel and look. Assembly comes very well packaged.5
Love itjamieIt is exactly what I wanted and it looks great. Assembly took a while but it was totally worth it. Don't forget to treat the wood, it comes naked and not conditioned. I recommend a deep clean, oil and wax base finish5
Absolutely Recommend!AlisaAbsolutely Recommend!5
We have a large kitchenRobertaWe have a large kitchen with too little usable counter space fir baking and Rimforsa has become my baker’s station. There is plenty of room to display my fancy baking pans as well as bowls and trays. And the top is perfect for mixing and kneading! We’ve also used it as a buffet table for entertaining.5
I love my Rimforsa workbenchesCAROLI have a wonderful boyfriend but he came with a very small kitchen with a lack of kitchen storage and additionally a lack of countertop space. We both love cooking so this really detracted from the experience of cooking together. We’ve added 2 Rimforsa workbenches and I love them. I have everything accessible at my fingertips. Cooking is joy again and I can now live with this kitchen without thinking every day, “I need to change this”.5
I love it!BirgitThis has been my favorite recent purchase from IKEA. It has provided the extra counter space to work on and it's clean design is the perfect addition to my kitchen makeover. I like that the drawers are soft-closing and the bottom shelf can double for a wine rack. Worth the $$.5
RimforsaSusanLove the work table. Did have to sand the top and re-oil. Fits my kitchen.5
Best kitchen islandJessicaThis item was fairly easy to put together for one person but would have gone much easier and faster with the recommended two people. Good size and nice look with plenty of extra storage which we needed desperately. The only issue I can find is that I wish the drawers were a bit deeper. Otherwise it is perfect. Saw a very similar item at Williams Sonoma but with a very thin marble top that was $4K so this item is very worth the money.5
Love this island!Jenn C.The Rimforsa island is beautiful! It looks great in my kitchen. Heavy and stays in place, lovely bamboo top. It's very well made and provided all the extra storage I needed. Great wide, self close drawers. The only problems were the instructions for the support bars. It was a little confusing and would suggest they label them.5
Outstanding quality and value2164th AFCSTwo of us put this together in 2 1/2 hours. Clear basic instructions. (The necessary tools ship with the hardware.) The parts and components are well designed and the engineering is excellent. Finished this unit looks like something that would have cost over $1000. The awesome wood bamboo top looks like a cutting block in a professional kitchen. The quality of the stainless steel appears good to very good. The drawers could be a little deeper. Another 1/2 would be helpful. I would recommend that Ikea also design a smaller single drawer version. Well done!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 bamboo?

Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA, we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
