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

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

May 24th 2020 Update: Ikea has announced many of their stores will open again on June 1st 2020. Generally speaking, Ikea stores have good stock of all their desks, and it’s super easy to check ahead of time (unlike their online distribution centres!)

At Sit/Stand Desk Tops we create desk tops compatible with the Idåsen, Bekant and Skarsta desk under frames. Right now, you can buy Idåsen and Skarsta under frames, but you cannot buy Bekant desks in any fashion.

Hopefully this table helps, correct as of 4th April 2020 (this situation will change, and we will try and keep this updated, feel free to get in touch if you are unsure):

  2. Click ‘Package details’
  3. Copy the article number for the underframe
  4. Go to the shopping cart
  5. Click on ‘Add a product by article number’
  6. Paste the number
  7. Click ‘Add article’
  8. Checkout.
