Product details

Free-standing kitchen island; easy to place where you want it in the kitchen.

Gives you extra storage, utility and work space.

The kitchen island has a pull-out drawer which closes softly and quietly thanks to its soft-closing function.

You can store anything from cutlery and napkins to laptops and pens in the generous drawer beneath the countertop.

Countertop with a thick oak veneer, a durable natural material that can be sanded and surface treated when required.

For quick installation and easy maintenance the countertop is pre-treated with hard wax oil.

Layer construction adds stability and makes the countertop less sensitive to humidity, thus, less likely to bend, split or crack than solid wood.

The countertop has an end-grain design that gives it a rustic charm that complements traditional kitchen styles. The expression is enhanced by design on the edges.

10-year Limited Warranty. Read about the terms in the Limited Warranty brochure.

Great table, TERRIBLE instructionsJamesWonderful table, my wife loves it in the kitchen. As for the instructions, however......someone needs to go back to the drawing board. Very confusing and not easy to understand.5
Exactly what I neededMichelleWe bought two of these for our basement, to use in a-coffee/snack area we were creating. They are perfect for what we needed, well made and sturdy. Only negative is-in store it’s shown with a towel handle on one side, we had no towel bar parts in either box we purchased.4
Took my time putting thisRonaTook my time putting this together as I did alone. Recommend two or more people do it or, if you can afford it, hire someone.But as other Ikea assemblies go, it's not too bad. I really like the look and it's really sturdy.4
Great island!CindyThis island is the perfect size for our kitchen! We did have one hole that was a shade off on assembly that we needed to drill a little, but overall fairly easy to assemble and looks great!5
Love this!DianaFits perfectly in my kitchen, It was easy to assemble and very durable. Its a very nice looking piece, and very good quality.5
difficult to assembleChristineWhile this island is really pretty, it was a nightmare to assemble. The frame didn't fit together properly, and the drawer barely comes in and out of its spot. Also, the towel bar wasn't cut on the inside, so the screws couldn't screw into place. I had to buy a separate "cabinet pull" off Amazon in its place.2
Sturdy and AttractiveTX DivaI bought this to create a coffee bar. It was easy to put together. It is the perfect size, and I get so many compliments!5
Solid constructionremaaWe purchased this for a throw table for the grandkids to drop their backpacks/bags when visiting. They don't really use the closets so we wanted something very stable that could take a little abuse on the top. I know it's a kitchen piece but it looks great in the small niche that we set it in and the butcher block top will take some use just fine. If needed I can sand it some years down the road. The structure is solid.5
Well constructed for the price.PaulNassauI purchased this a couple months ago for added kitchen counter space. It's nicely constructed, but purchasers should be aware that this item is not designed for use with your meat cleaver. Assembly was relatively easy and quick. The drawer is large enough to store 5 of my cutting boards.5
Perfect small islandRSilkeI was so happy with how beautiful this looks in my small kitchen. It added some much needed extra counter space.5
Perfect fit and function!AniG14Easy to clean surface. Great storage below. Fits beautifully as our kitchen island. Great buy.5
Babs35Just what we wanted for our kitchen.5
Fits the purposeBbyrne3We got this to complete a kitchen remodel where we wanted a center island that could easier be moved if needed. This fit the bill. Price was right. Assembly was pretty easy except I can’t get the drawer to completely close. It just sticks out a little bit but still under the counter overhang so I am not going to worry about it. So far the top has not had any issues and we use it extensively.4
Great addition to the kitchenMariaCACWe needed extra counter space for the kitchen to prepare food and to store kitchen ware and appliances and this kitchen island has been great so far!! Perfect size and perfect color for us5
Looks BeautifulLetsgotoikeaI was worried that the matte-ish finish black would show water spots, etc. No! It cleans up nicely and looks expensive. Slats are easy to keep dust free with the brush attachment on the vacuum. I love it.4
Butcher block is poor qualityNatalieMPLSThe seams in the butcher block top cracked within a month of use, after room temperature water spilled on it. Cracks continue to happen/worsen. It's not a solid butcher block piece either- it's some sort of compilation of laminated or bamboo pieces glued to the outside of a counter top to appear to be a butcher block top.1
Easy to clean and useful islandFroggyteachThe drawer and open storage is great. Wish the towel rack was wider. Was one of the only products you need a drill to assemble it.5
nice looking and practicalsteph crockerI like the clean lines of this island unit which make it attractive, but it's somewhat impractical as I store my pots and pans underneath, and the lack of overhang on the top leads to crumbs landing on the shelves underneath. The towel bar is really convenient; however it would be super cool if I could have mounted it on teh other side as that's the side of my kitchen that gets sun which would dry the towels much more quickly. I think it was possible to mount on teh opposite side, I just didn't realize that when building it. The drawer is a really great feature and I use it a lot for all the items I use like knives, baker's scale, and extra towels when I I am cooking.4
Very FunctionalbillwildGreat looking unit, fits well in our kitchen.Wife very happy with this unit. The assembly takes a bit time--some instruction pictures can be confusing,pics not to clear on some of the different rails.4

Sustainable life at home

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.

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.

“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.

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.
