Design changed; lower quality nowVerified ReviewerWe have 4 older Ivar chairs which I am happy with. I bought 2 more today (intending to get 2 more later). However when I was screwing one together, the curved back piece split. This is because that piece of wood is actually two pieces glued together along the line where the screw goes. This is an obvious weak point and should never have passed the design stage. I now see some other reviewers have mentioned this issue. Also the way the seat attaches to the legs has changed. Again, cheaper methods/materials (a plastic peg and a tiny screw, instead of a long screw through a pre-drilled hole). And the angle of the legs has changed, so they don't match our current ones. Some of the photos still show the older design. And yes Ikea staff, I know I can return it. But it makes me angry that I should have to (via two trams) just because you want to skimp. You rely on some people keeping the faulty items to make the cheaper materials pay off. It's not a sustainable approach.1

Great value!Verified ReviewerWas a bit concerned about buying a chair at such a cheap price,however am very pleasantly surprised! This feels much sturdier than more expensive chairs I have previously purchased. Lovely that I can also paint/stain it to suit my decor.Delighted !!5
Perfect chairVerified ReviewerI love these chairs, the price is excellent and you can paint them any colour you like. The quality is excellent and they were easy to put together too. I would recommend using an electric screwdriver with an Allen key fitting, makes putting them together so much quicker.5
Comfortable and sturdy.Verified ReviewerLike the chairs very much, they are comfortable and sturdy and not to big for my small room. And I can paint them any colour.5
Affordable, functional, strong and versatileVerified ReviewerI purchased four of these with the Norden gateleg table. Being on a budget, these were a great buy. We intend to paint the chairs when we get round to decorating our new flat. They're very simple to put together and would go with most styles...or are easily personalised. It's a shame they don't stack but I'm not complaining for the price.5

Strong, sturdy and affordableVerified ReviewerThe chairs are a great price and quality not comprised in the price. We use seat cushions with them.

Packaged in a way that we could fit 6 chairs in the boot, once again ikea have put thought into that5
PerfectVerified ReviewerA simple chair to use...easy to assemble and can even paint it a different colour due to being plain wood.5
Really good chair'sVerified ReviewerReally good chairs put a stain on them and they look fantastic5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.


What is solid wood?

Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood.
