Round and round you go! Your child sets the pace – spinning slowly relaxes; spinning quickly develops balance. When your child pulls down the hood, it becomes a cozy hideaway.

Bought for my granddaughter.DianaBought for my granddaughter.5
Sage loves her chair!SusanneMy 3 year old great niece would always make sure she tried out this chair when we were shopping in IKEA, so, we bought her one! She just loves her time under the top, telling stories, looking at books, just her! Of course, the spinning is a hit as well!5
My son loves itSylvieMy son is a year and a half and loves our (adult sized) poang chair. I wanted a kid poang chair but he stands on the big one all the time. This chair has a solid base that makes it difficult to tip. He does stand in it (not for very long) and it doesn’t budge. He loves spinning and just lounging in it. I would say, I will be making a custom cushion for him because the red part is just plastic.5
My son loves this chairLeanneMy son loves this chair so much.5
Spin!!CindyHad this years ago for kids and a must have for any family5
Big and not horrible to put togetherNatashaBought this for my soon to be 5 year old. The chair is big enough that he's going to fit it for a few more years. Base is solid and heavy to keep is sturdy. Very unlikely it will tip over. Spins smoothly. Would give it 5 stars if is had more colour selection.4
Great for our 4 year old!Verified BuyerOur son loves sitting and spinning and hiding in this chair - he really enjoys it and feels like he has a place to sit that is exclusively his. I wish it was a bit softer / more comfortable, though.4
SevinaEggcellent product. Nephews love it5
Verified BuyerI bought this items a month ago and it was very great5
Verified BuyerI bought this product thinking my son would love it, but apparently I'm more enthusiastic about it than he is! Also I thought that it's probably a little overpriced.3
Children love thisAndreaFrom the moment I brought this home to my little granddaughter it has been her go to chair This little chair is perfect for a child with autism it allows them to have a quiet secure feeling it's calming to just sit and spin with the cover down Other children love to sit and read in this chair5

A cozy place with a twist

You probably know how childhood memories can stick and become almost magical snapshots in your mind. If you work at IKEA, these memories can inspire you to create new products. Like LÖMSK swivel chair. "As a child I was constantly doing handstands and I loved rocking and spinning. My father's armchair was enticing, so as an adult I had the idea that there should be swivel armchairs adapted for children," says our designer Monika Mulder. She wanted the chair to stimulate imagination, too. So she gave it a hood that can be pulled down to create a secret hiding place.

Since 2003, children throughout the world have spun, hidden and created their own cozy space in LÖMSK swivel armchair. Child psychologist Barbie Clarke, who has researched children and their development, has seen it act like a magnet to children. "Children love things that change into something else. It stimulates the imagination and gives a feeling of having magical powers. And spinning in the armchair is not just a fun game, it also contributes to important physical development,” explains Barbie. “When children climb, hang upside down, run, balance and spin, their sensory systems develop ─ particularly their balance.”

An armchair for more imagination and play

Today, Designer Monika Mulder has four children of her own. "In our home, it has been used as a toy stove, so that sometimes when the room is to be quickly cleaned, everything from the floor is hidden under the pulled down hood. Later in the evening, LÖMSK often looks like a glowing ball when one of the children sits inside it with a tablet." For Monika, the fact that LÖMSK is used in unexpected ways is positive. "In a pretend world, children can comfortably prepare for adult life ─ with nothing predetermined. It’s the imagination of children that decides what LÖMSK should be.”

Material

What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
