Quality is questionableRachel J.I’ve had this for a few months. Love the design and how functional it is. Also have the rack in top. However the paint or something it peeling off the legs. Not sure why or how to fix it.3
Our tiny table!ALEXANDRA S.We are limited on space but given our style it fits perfectly as a dining nook for two. We use it as our primary dining table and love the storage it has. It’s functional, versatile, modern, and will work as an island or as a crafting table as we grow into bigger spaces. Love the look and the price!5

Great tableWendyThis is a perfect fit for our small dinning area. We have an open concept home and love the way the table blends in. It doubles great as a functional standing zoom desk.5
Pretty island, but warped within a yearElizabeth T.I really wish I could write a better review, as I really do love this island, however, the table warped about 10 months after purchase. I saw the other reviews, so I used some butcher block oil to help resist any potential moisture problems, despite living in a dry climate. The table is used mostly to collect mail and decorations and has never been used to eat at, so when I cleared the table of papers for a holiday gift drop spot, I was surprised to find a raised welt in the veneer. This is the first Ikea item I've had issues with. I really wish they had put a thicker veneer on, or at least allowed an upgrade option to an actual butcher block. Value: 1 - Defective within a year Quality: 1 - Fails within a year with minimal use Appearance: 5 - I love the look Assembly: 5 - Easy to assemble, but do use 2+ people2

Better countertops with fewer trees

At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilize materials in the best possible way. For our countertops in thick veneer it means that we combine old craftsmanship with modern manufacturing methods. It makes the countertops easier to install, more stable and more resistant to humidity compared to solid countertops. And since we use the whole tree – even the crooked branches and the small twigs – we can save natural resources too.

Better worktops by using wood smartly

Wood is a precious natural resource. Even though it’s a renewable material it needs to be handled responsibly. One way to do it, is to use the wood more efficiently. That’s what we do with our kitchen worktops in thick wood veneer.

“At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilize the materials we have in the best possible way,” says Johnny Rietz, who’s been involved in developing the kitchen worktops in thick veneer. The work started in 2008 when IKEA founder, Ingvar Kamprad, visited one of our suppliers and asked a simple question that took some time to answer: ‘How can we make this product using fewer trees?’

Less is more

“After some trials and errors, we came up with the solution. A core of particleboard and a layer of solid wood on the outside – or thick veneer,” says Johnny. “It’s a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern manufacturing methods. Paper-thin veneer has been used in fine, decorative furniture making for centuries, but for our worktops we’re using a much thicker layer of wood.” The thick veneer makes the surface hardwearing, and it saves raw material – a lot of it. From the same amount of wood needed to make one solid worktop, it’s possible to produce five thick veneer worktops.

No wood is wasted

Another advantage with this production technique is that you can use the whole tree; the stem as surface, and scrap bits – curvy, bent branches and small twigs – for the particleboard on the inside. The end result is a worktop that is every bit as genuine as solid wood, only more stable and more resistant to humidity. “Sometimes a small, harmless question can make a big difference. That’s exactly what happened with our kitchen worktops. It started as a challenge to use resources wiser, and proved to have positive effects not only for the environment, but also the quality. I think it’s great when that happens!” says Johnny.


What is veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
