IKEA Sit/Stand Desks during Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Solid Wood Supplier Update (May 2022)

Stocks of Grade A Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified oak and walnut are very low country wide due to importing solid wood from Europe; at present we are still taking orders, and will continue to monitor the situation.

Although we cannot rule out further delays, our current lead times (although long) are as accurate as we can foresee, our small workshop team are doing everything they can to make and deliver desk tops as quickly as possible.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has had a massive effect on the retail sector. Even online retail is having to undergo substantial changes in order to comply with distancing rules in the work place. Retail giants such as Asos, Lush and even Amazon are currently having one issue or another, be it transforming their work spaces to allow workers to be safe, restructuring their fulfilment processes or even prioritising certain products for inventory replenishing. It is safe to say, no business, even solid online/offline retailers are breezing through this crisis, IKEA included.

IKEA Sit/Stand Desk Delivery Issues

At Sit/Stand Desk Tops we create desk tops compatible with the Idåsen, Bekant and Skarsta desk under frames. Right now, you can buy Bekant online and in store, Idåsen frames are not available any where as far as we can see until October 2020-2021, and Skarsta frames in store only.

Despite stock being available to purchase, if you are using the online delivery service, our customers are reporting waits of over 5 weeks for some desk frames; so a trip your nearest Ikea might be the best bet. Remember: do a stock check for your specific Ikea on the website before making a trip!

How to order an IKEA desk underframe

If you would like to buy a Large Skarsta desk or some Idåsen colour varients right now, you will need source a desk top yourself. A great way of doing it would be to couple our solid wood desk top with the desk underframe from IKEA.

As we all know, the next few weeks and months will continue to present major challenges for businesses. Currently we are available for desk top orders, however our lead times on certain products have been extended. If you would like specific information on a specific product, please contact us, we will be happy to help.
