It's exactly what I imagined.KimI've been eyeing this product for a few years. I finally bit the bullet. It's exactly what I imagined. I'm glad I went wit the real wood one. It is a little pricey but it's worth it.5
Stay away from this storage!Sushant A.The storage is defective - it can't be assembled because the holes don't line up. Just google trofast and defective and you'll see what i mean. Unless you want to spend 2-3 hours (and $$) only to get frustrated and annoyed with IKEA - would recommend staying away. Would give this storage negative star if i could - just bunch of crap delivered to my home.1

Great storage piece.MIGUELWe used 2 of them for our Lego room. We seperate our bricks in each of the drawer/dressers.5
Love it!ANGELICAI have 5 of these. The one I recently purchased is a lighter color than the previous ones, but I love the durability in these. I use it in my classroom and at home to store toys and my son’s Lego toys.5
Lego StorageIvysMy son is into Legos and this Trofast is a great way to organize. I did it by color.5
Hard to put together. LoveKathieHard to put together. Love the final product5
LEGO TableLauryn135We used the Trofast to make LEGO tables for our kids. We bought 5 of them but only built 3 fully. we used the other two on the outsides of the built ones to make a shelving area which we then used plywood for (with superglued LEGO bases). It looks great!5
Great storagewyo shopperMy 6 yr old granddaughter and I put it together. Big fun.5
perfect kids storageTwins momGot this for extra storage with the bins that go with it and I have another like it from this type of collection they have. This was good because you can paint it and decorate it anyway you like. It was very easy to assemble as well.5
Very versatileFamily of 3I bought this for my daughters room for toy storage she loves using it for her clothes too! Sturdy and easy to assemble.5
Like but wood is bowedCOmamaI like the storage and have two others but when I put it all together, I realized one of the boards was completely bowed so the bins do not stay in very well. I live 3 hours from an ikea so will have to deal or figure out when to return it3
Do-ableMinStoneIt works really well! It’s very easy for my two year old to use.5
Bins fall out of tracksJillesThe tracks are carved into the wood sides, instead of having plastic tracks. The bins fall & pop out of the tracks easily. Otherwise, it’s a great piece.3
Trofast versatil and usefullPansie67I love this frame, I can add different size drawers/containers and keep art supplies, school stuff, etc. organized.4
Very sturdyFufij78This shelf is an awsome space saver.5
I wish I could give it half a starToeCutterAlthough it looks great, the sides bow out over the course of time. The other Trofast, do not have the slots that are milled in to the wood. They come with metal tracks that get attached. Eventually the sides of this Trofast begin to bow out, and the plastic bins barely fit in there to begin with. There is just enough plastic to hold on to the milled slots. Meaning, the bins are too small to be properly held. The problem begins when you start loading the bins up. If you are putting anything heavier than a scarf, or socks, the bins do not stay in the slots. They fall out. It usually happens at night when you're sleeping and you wonder what that noise was. We bought it for our kids toys, and that makes a lot of noise. The alternative is to buy the shelves, and drastically limits the amount of bins you can use.1
Makes the perfect Lego organizer!KismetGreat for organizing my children's Lego collection. My only complaint is that one of the side pieces of wood was really warped. I was able to get it together though and you can't tell other than bins at the bottom do not fit as snug in the tracks. If I lived closer I would have exchanged it. That being said, I still love the product!4
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 solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favorite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the tree species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood.
