The worst shelfJoseph C.Don’t waste your money. You can’t actually hang this. It’s definitely too heavy to trust in just drywall and the smart folks at Ikea set up the pre filled holes at 34” apart. Meaning it cannot be hung on two wall studs since they are standard 32” apart (16 per). And if you try to re-drill new holes the particle board product just falls apart. I am not happy at all with this. 10 seconds of thought and IKEA could have pre drilled the hanging holes in the right place to begin with.1
Just what I was lookingTAMMYJust what I was looking for!5
Wall trofastKristinaI had to give this a one, but I love this piece! However you do not ship the matching tubs to my location, so it has been impossible for me to find any that fit! Now I'm stuck with this awesome piece for my classroom and no tubs for it!1
Love it, but.DianeWish it was deeper. I use it in my classroom to hold materials. This one was too small so I bought a second one and the larger bins. I have them on the floor so was able to push the two together and they accommodate the larger bins perfectly.4
FrustratedApril W.We ordered this and noticed the bins were not available to ship, but were in stock in the MN store. I had someone go to the store for me and the associate said they were out of stock, but a shipment was coming in 2 days. Went back the day they were supposed to be in stock and a different associate said those bins were not going to be in stock for 8 weeks. We cannot find the bins anywhere and the shelf is already mounted on our wall and looks ridiculous without the bins (I would take the mesh or plastic ones - we aren't picky at this point), so I am guessing we cannot return it. Why continue to sell the shelf if there are no bins available?1
Bins for it?Rebecca S.I bought a couple but can't find the bins. Please tell me what bins I need3
Sturdy but needs bins!Meghan V.I love the trofast shelving for toy storage. I haven’t been able to locate the bins to fit this wall unit or any alternatives.4
Easy storageJANINEGreat storage with a nice look.5
Easy projectMargaretMy spouse is normally frustrated when doing a job.
However this took him all of one hour, we are old.
Love it!LauBarI use it as a shelf on the floor to store my infant son’s toys to be within his reach. I like that as he grows and gets taller I can hang it on the wall. It’s simple, clean, and useful5
Quilter LSI'm using this shelf in my sewing room.5
shop ikeaIkea has good selection for us to find what we wanted. This shelf fits vertically where we needed it and we are satisfied.5
Great for craftsvolkswagen1971I bought this to hold some scrapbooking tools. It works perfectly for this. I used them for scissors, pens, markers, and washi tape. You can pull out what you need and have it all in the bin and throw it back on the wall when finished.5
Perfect fitMrsmaxxI have bought a few of these, easy to put together and the cubbies fit great5
Easy assembly. My 12 year old put it togetherCorimunchI love that my son loves it in his room as a “floating’ bedside table.5
BeautifulAccnurseAdapted this for use as a book shelf and it worked. Received compliments from friends.4
LEGO STORAGE!foundwaldoThis made for the best lego storage above my son's desk. If you have a lego lover buy this! We've had other lego solutions but I love the look of the trofast systems.5
MargSkyAwesome organizer storage for little toys in my sons room5
Sharp looking durable !Susan 63What I was disappointed with is that it took me three trips to finally get the last 3 large bins to finish it. I bought it earlier enough but you couldn’t keep the colors in stock.4
Toy Storageamber33We bought this hoping that it would help keep my daughters little toys organized. We hung it right under her window. It has definitely helped!! It not only helped organize the toys but it also helped teach her to pick up her toys!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 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.
