Work tableDebbyLove this desk. Very nicely made, easy to put together. Great size for an art room.5
Economical optionSUSANThis looks nice, went together fairly easily. The top is soft, it slipped out of my hands while assembling and got a gouge, thankfully on the bottom side. Ability to raise and lower is a nice touch.4
Great work from home optionJodiFunctional sit/stand desk, easy to assemble. Seems to be holding up well to daily use.4
great desk for the moneyJOYI've had this for about a month and I LOVE it so far. The directions were a little confusing - the directions are for both the large and small versions of this desk and it does not differentiate well between the two in the directions. But even with that, the table came together very quickly. I have the smaller version and there is more than enough surface area to work with. Very happy with this purchase.5
Great deskPATRICIAI LOVE this desk. It is simple and streamlined. The manual crank is low-fuss and easy to use.5
PerfectMatthewPerfect size. The crank lets you raise the desk to EXACTLY where you need it to be; no futzing with the last quarter inch due to switch/motor lag. VERY heavy legs make for a sturdy stace - no shaking or wobbling.5
Perfect look and function forAnnaPerfect look and function for the price unlike other options available5
Perfect for my home officeALLISONJust the right size and fits well in my home office.5
Great solution for working from homeDenise R.Purchased this to transition my office to home. Works perfectly and I love the height adjustment functionality.5
Love itQUINNEKAI love my new desk. It’s great and meets my needs. It was easy to put together by one person.5
Great manual standing deskMelissaWe looked a lot of standing desks before we got this one. Very happy with it. Easily cranks from sitting height to standing. Not hard to put together. Has been working great, would definitely recommend. Much cheaper than other manual options and even more so than automated ones.5
Exactly what we were lookingNadiaExactly what we were looking for5
Perfect desk!mrsmaqualThis desk is a great option for anyone who likes to stand while working. The assembly was pretty easy. Raising and lowering the desk is a breeze.5
it’s perfect and clean lookiJeffI got it recently, using it for my work since I’m working from home and use it for personal use such as gaming and drawing, have to clean it often but it’s very nice5
Useful and comfortable!TexasDoriI bought this a couple weeks ago to use in my craft room. I like to stand and work but with this desk, if I want to sit, I simply crank it to the level most comfortable for my height. There is an electric style available, but I chose the hand crank because it provides a small amount of exercise and if there is a power outage, my adjustable height desk is still usable!4
Perfectlwb2Bought to provide flexibility- stand when work from home; sit when crafting/sewing. Easy to adjust!5
Perfect Table (Needs Anti-Fatigue Foot Mat)techiegThis is the perfect table for anyone that wants to be able to switch between standing and sitting for extended periods. I just wished IKEA also sold anti-fatigue comfort foot mats too. Having to use my yoga mat momentarily for my home office/study.5
good. but not as expected.kass123451992the table is definitely not beige. looks more gray. and it does not go good with the tan trim.3
Just What I NeededSwissms19This is exactly what I needed for my arts and crafts room. I can sit to sew and stand to do other things. I am thinking of buying one for my classroom!!!!5
Great WFH deskMissgingerI’m working from home now and missed my stand up desk from the office. This desk was a little bit challenging to put together and the legs are quite heavy, but once it’s all together it’s pretty easy to crank up or down. Love the sleek white look and it’s plenty big enough for dual monitors.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.

“When we develop work furniture, we always involve ergonomic experts. One challenge we’ve had is to figure out what color of desk is best if you work a lot on the computer. Especially if you also have to peek at your phone several times per hour – a reality I think many of us recognize”, says Anthony Rotman, Product Developer.

Look out for your friends

When the eyes shift focus from the computer screen to the phone and then back to the computer again, they have to adapt to different backgrounds and contrasts. One way to get around the problem is to have a desk in a neutral tone. “There’s no absolute answer to which color is best; it depends on what you prefer and what type of work you do. But, if you often experience that your eyes become tired and already have tried with an extra cup of coffee, there’s a good chance that a work desk in more muted colors can help”, tips Anthony.

Squint less for less headache

There are other details that can make the workday a little easier. A low-gloss surface can for example help to reduce glare. “Just like contrasts, glare can be straining to the eyes. It makes us squint, and when we do that for a long time, it’s not uncommon that a headache comes knocking”, says Anthony. From an evolutionary perspective, our bodies haven’t had the time to adjust to long hours with different digital screens. “The good news is that small, thought-out details that don’t cost a fortune, can make a huge difference in our daily work – and improve our health and well-being in the long run.”

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 and resource-efficient, 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.
