Cergy75I got back pain when I am sitting.3
Really disappointedNPExI purchased this stool for my son who is doing A levels. He used it regularly for a week & complained of back pain. I have the receipt but not the packaging. I have been told by customer service that the only way of getting a refund or credit note is to disassemble the item & return it in its original cardboard box. Now the stool is assembled it is very difficult to take it apart without force. Therefore even if I had the box, I wouldn’t want to risk it. I’m afraid it’s left me very dubious of the benefit of a so called 365 day guarantee! I will no longer be able to use the item due to it causing Pain. It has all the labels attached & I have the receipt but the new returns policy doesn’t allow a return!! Poor.1
Versatile and comfortable.EO PhotographyA stylish and functional product. I built a desk in a nook adjoining the fire place (*very proud of myself on that 1). The bar stool I was using was too tall, and hard on the glutes! So I began looking for an adjustable, comfortable alternative. Many of the (*stylish) options that I came up with cost more than 'D Double' (*Grime fans will appreciate the reference)! I set the stool up in 2 minutes and have been using it for all of half an hour! So far, so excellent! Ikea should consider a few more colour choices. I took 1 star off out of a possible 25 for that, but its still excellent5
HitmouseThis is a comfortable stool. It is robust and adjusts in height easily. The ability for the foot to rock slightly is very useful, making it much more comfortable in use, while remaining stable.5
Comfortable and looks greatEmmaH2019Perfect for daughters bedroom. Stool is sturdy and height adjustment easy.5
Ideal, use it at my sewing tableConnie 50Perfect for my needs. Use it for when I'm sewing. Sewing table is a combination of ikea chests and desktop.5
DisappointedMary McExpected the seat to be used to lean against but unable to do so as sear is flat. Would like to return to store but cannot find receipt - can you help me?1
Perfect stool for drawing board/deskSimple good design, very comfortable, easy height adjustment and ideal for working on drawing board or desk/work station. Excellent for my back pain.5
Very comfortableI first sat on this stool in the waiting area of customer services department and it was so comfortable that I bought one! The seat height is adjustable and has thick padding and is a modern design. Very pleased with this purchase.5
Fantastic for sit stand deskKen NottinghamBought his to go with my sit/stand desk and it’s great. Not seat cushon is quite firm and more a seat to perch on rather than sit.5

Designed for comfort and built to last

Whether we work in an office or at home, many of us spend the majority of the day at a desk. A comfortable workspace is therefore essential for our health and wellbeing. Since we are all different shapes and sizes, it is important to have office furniture that can be customised to our personal needs. This brochure shows how we make your comfort our priority, and what you can do to achieve the best working environment.

Create the best workspace for you

It’s important to create the most comfortable working environment to suit you. Working for longer periods of time while sitting or standing in a bad or uncomfortable position can cause neck and back injuries as well as other serious health problems. Find out what you can do to create an ergonomic workspace, and learn about the different quality tests we carry out and the materials we use. What’s an ergonomic workspace? Ergonomics is about designing products or environments to make them safe and comfortable for people to use. An ergonomic workspace is one that is customised to your personal needs, allowing you to work in a comfortable and safe way.

Feel good and work better

We want to help you achieve an ergonomic working environment that suits you and promotes good health. This means adjusting the workspace to your needs, adopting an ergonomic position and keeping as mobile as possible. The human body is made to move, so ideally, your workspace should give you the choice of sitting, standing and leaning, allowing you to change positions often. And if you feel good at work, you will work better.

Some tips:

Choosing the right chair, desk, monitor or lamp can help create a comfortable working environment, but it cannot correct a bad posture. Make sure you adopt a good posture when sitting or standing for longer periods to avoid injury. Here are some tips on how to create a comfortable workspace.


You should be able to stretch your legs under the table and turn 90° to the left and right for freedom of flexibility. The hips and knees should be at an angle of approx 95-100° with your feet flat on the floor. HEIGHT Choose a height-adjustable chair. When standing, the highest point of the seat should be just below your knee cap. You should aim for an even distribution of weight. Raise your chair if you feel pressure near the back of your seat, but if you feel pressure near the front of your seat, you should lower your chair. This will improve the circulation of blood and reduce the risk of swelling. SEAT TILT Use the seat tilt to lock a position and to improve your comfort. It will affect the distribution of weight and can provide better stability and support when you need it. A tilt of 5° is recommended.

LUMBAR SUPPORT A chair with lumbar support will relieve the small of your back from tension caused by tiredness. The tilt of the back support should allow you to sit with your upper body slightly reclined (recommended 110°). ARMRESTS Armrests can provide support for the upper part of your forearms, and reduce the stress on your shoulders and back. Make sure that the armrests do not prevent the chair from being drawn close to the desk, nor restrict natural movements. Also keep in mind that soft armrests will be more comfortable for your elbows.


A height-adjustable desk is ideal as it will allow you to change position often. Alternating between sitting and standing will reduce the risk of injury and increase circulation, as well as productivity. The top of your work surface should be elbow height and your elbows should be at a 90° angle when sitting or standing at your desk.


A standing support enables a position between sitting and standing, and is ideal when you have a height adjustable desk. It has the following advantages: Provides freedom of movement for your upper and lower body. Activates and strengthens the core muscles of your body. Gives you an open posture which improves your circulation and metabolic rate.


Make sure your monitor is not placed too close to you. With your chair pulled in and arms stretched in front of you, you should not be able to touch the screen. The monitor should be placed directly in front of you, with the top just below eye level. Placing the monitor too high can cause neck problems. For longer periods at your monitor, make sure your arms and wrists are supported. The keyboard and mouse should be placed around 10-15 cm from the edge of the desk, so that the wrists are supported, but not too far that your neck and shoulders lean forwards. The monitor should be tilted at 20°-30°, which is an optimal angle for the eyes as well as the neck and shoulders.


To provide ideal lighting you should consider a combination of general lighting, mood lighting and task lighting. A desk lamp is a type of task light that provides a concentrated beam of light over a limited area. This is useful when for example focusing on paperwork. General lighting provides a uniform light through the whole room. Mood lighting provides a cosy feeling and softens the contrasts between general and task lighting. Place the lamp on your left side if you are right handed to reduce shadows. Computers near a window should be roughly placed at a 90° angle to the window in order to avoid glare


We test our products for quality, safety and durability to meet international testing standards. We have very tight restrictions on chemicals, and even though certain products meet international standards they might not meet our own higher standards. In that case we will not manufacture those products. Your safety is always our top priority.

International standards

We test that our products are in line with international standards according to or set by EN and ANSI/BIFMA. In addition, IKEA has its own chemical and quality testing. EN EN stands for European Norm. These standards are recognised throughout Europe and they assure strength, durability and stability. ANSI/BIFMA ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, which creates and oversees norms and standards, and accredits organisations like BIFMA to formulate tests for different sectors. BIFMA, the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association, creates standards for business furniture with the highest safety standards. The professional office furniture from IKEA is tested according to BIFMA’s safety and resistance requirements.

High-quality testing

Tests are carried out in our test labs in Sweden and China in the product development phase. The test methods are the same for home and professional use, but for professional use the products are tested with heavier loads and more cycles.

How we test our office furniture

Desk and office chairs Desk chairs that are intended for home use are tested to assure they are comfortable, stable, safe and durable. The series of tests we put our office chairs through are more rigorous to meet the strict requirements on stability, strength and durability. For instance, the chairs are subjected to heavy loads up to about 300 000 times. Desks Desks for home use are subjected to various tests including stability, strength and durability tests. The kinds of tests that are carried out depend upon the design of the desk, and which areas of the desk that are expected to be most exposed to wear and tear. Tests carried out on desks for professional use are stricter than those for home use. Desks that meet those standards will adhere to the following standards: EN 527, ANSI/BIFMA X5, which means we test their stability, durability and safety. For example, we might test the strength of a product by subjecting it to a vertical force of 100 kg for 10 seconds × 10 times.

Storage Quality tests are carried out on storage furniture for safety and durability. Different parts including doors, drawers, surfaces and wheels are subjected to different tests. Storage furniture that has been tested for office use meets the following standards: EN 14073 and ANSI/BIFMA × 5.9


We care about what goes into our products and always aim to use resources in the most efficient way possible. We choose our materials carefully while keeping prices low. Some materials work better for certain furniture depending on its use and design. For example Melamine is often used in table tops because it has high surface resistance against scratches and marks. Melamine – a paper film with an impregnated print or pattern, which is applied under pressure to a board. The result is a hardwearing, heat-resistant and water-repellent surface which is easy to keep clean. Veneer – thin layers of wood glued on to a board. All IKEA veneer is lacquered which makes it easy to clean, hard wearing and protects it from moisture and scratches. Board on frame – A wooden board or fibre board with a honeycomb filling structure made of recycled paper. It is lightweight yet sturdy, and uses significantly less raw material. Bamboo – stronger and more flexible than most wood. Sustainable fast growing grass that produces twice as much oxygen than tree species.

Solid wood – a renewable, natural material that is hardwearing and every piece is unique with its varying grain. IKEA sources all wood from closely inspected logging and carefully chosen forests. GLOSE leather – a soft yet durable dyed-through grain leather, treated with a protective coating. Easy to look after. Treat with ABSORB leather care set. Plastics - A synthetic or semi-synthetic material that can be moulded and is made from oil or natural gas but also from plants. There are two categories of plastics: thermosplastics that can be heated, moulded and melted, and thermoset plastics that cannot be remelted. The most commonly used in IKEA are thermoplastis such as polycarbonate and polypropylene. Wood plastic composite WPC – A mixture of wood and fibre that is moulded into a form, combining the advantages of the two materials. It is strong and lighter than other plastics, making transportation costs lower and reducing environmental impact. Paint & lacquer Powder coating is a process where dry powder paint is applied to a surface, often metal. It is an efficient and environmentally sustainable technique, since there’s little waste of powder and no solvents are used.
