Step by step guide

Shopping for furniture online is as easy as shopping in the IKEA store. First, use the drop-down menu to select a furnishings category. In this example, we select “chairs and stools.”

Now select a specific product category work and visitor chairs.

Here’s the list of all work and visitor chairs. Now we’ll click on the LYDER chair to see product details.

Here’s the LYDER chair product page. The price appears near the center of the page. Some products have options and colours to select in drop-down menus just below the product. Notice that there are also links to additional information on this page. These include an option to “check stock availability” in your local store.

How to purchase an item online

If you prefer to purchase the item online, click the orange-coloured “add to shopping cart” button.

The shopping cart icon in the upper right corner of the screen will open the “shopping cart items” window. This window displays all the items in your cart.

You can save, e-mail, or print a list by clicking the icons at the bottom of the screen. Click “shopping cart overview” to see your shopping cart and review product options.

Shopping cart overview allows you to review product options and make changes. You may also wish to print this page for your records.
