Cushions slide too easilyThe Applaro series look great and of a great value. I always love and trust IKEA products so I am surprised that I am having issues with this product. Without thinking twice, I ordered two sets of Applaro 3 seaters and the dining set/parasol etc for my backyard recently.
However, I am very disappointed in that the cushions on Applaro/Hallo chairs slide so much it's hard to relax while sitting on them as everyone is constantly having to get up to fix the cushions. Is this normal?
In contrast, the cushions on the applaro dining chairs stay on well with strings tied at the back. So I am surprised to see these cushions on Applaro Hallo chairs slide all over the place and now I might have to go sew on some strings myself.
When I called the customer service about this problem (and I am pretty sure I am not the only one with this problem!), they told me that if I had put them together properly according to their instructions, this problem should not be happening! So much for customer service!

-The cushion has a longer life because it can be turned over and used on both sides.
-The cover is easy to keep clean because it is removable and machine washable.
-For added durability and so you can enjoy the natural expression of the wood, the furniture has been pre-treated with several layers of semi-transparent wood stain.
