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.
Untreated solid wood is a durable natural material which is even more hardwearing and easy to look after if you oil or wax the surface.
With extra shelves you can make room for more things on an existing bookcase.
Solid pine is a natural material which ages beautifully and gains its own unique character over time.
