Beautiful chair, but the assembly of the arm rests takes astonishing amount of wrangling!Verified Reviewerthe assembly of the arm rests takes astonishing amount of wrangling! The hook which enters the chair frame takes knack to get in. The instruction should include diagram of how the arms need to be pushed down at a certain angle. It really got my knickers in a twist , I found changing the cam belt on my boxer engine much more straight forward...perhaps I'm just rubbish end of story5
Black marksVerified ReviewerIf you move the chair on wooden flooring it leaves black marks.. not happy1
Struggled with assembly of theVerified ReviewerStruggled with assembly of the arm pieces! But looks fabulous do very pleased5
Lovely chair very comfy slightlyVerified ReviewerLovely chair very comfy slightly tricky to build5
Hard to assembleVerified ReviewerThe chair looks amazing but it was a nightmare to put together. Those wings just did not want to slide into place. I think I spent half an hour on that step alone. I'd recommend having someone to help if you plan to build this.4
Great chair but quite difficultVerified ReviewerGreat chair but quite difficult to assemble. Particularly the sides. However very comfortable.5
This chair nearly grew wings as I was tempted to throw it out if the window during assemblyVerified ReviewerIt was comfortable in the store and the range of colours was lovely. But assembling at home was the biggest pain in the proverbial part… I’m no ikea virgin - I’ve assembled a fair few bits of furniture - beds, desks, chairs with drawers. But this took the cake - trying to put the Arms with their bloody hooks on the main body was near impossible and will be included as one of the 12 tasks of Hercules. Once the wings were on, trying to secure them with the 2 screws onto the base led to another round of swearing and great frustration. Why on Earth is this chair so hard to assemble? As I write this review I am currently seated in the Strandmon, which is probably lopsided, trying to work out how much I should get paid for putting this together… Normally I feel okay about IKEA pricing - you get what you pay for most of the time… but this chair isn’t worth the 250 price tag I’m afraid. If you can find it second hand, already assembled, go for it.3
Great chair just ignore some reviewers!Verified ReviewerPicked this chair up a few weeks after sitting on it in store and falling in love with how comfortable it is. I read many reviews to make sure I wasn't making a faux pas and buying something that wasn't up to standard for a house full of kids and animals but was NEARLY put off by the reviews of how difficult this thing was going to be to put together. I read claims of 2+ hours of build time, returning the chair, misaligned pieces, and poor quality construction but thankfully experience none of this. The hardest part was fitting the (bigger than I had anticipated) box in the van I had forgotten to empty, before venturing to the shop but years of Tetris practice ensured I made it home with the chair. Assembly was very straightforward and took less than half an hour with it being made up of 4 main parts than easily bolt together. Now I have a chair by the window to sit in and read and be nosey watching the neighbours come and go and I can't think of anything better! Thank you5
Super comfortable!Verified ReviewerNow I know why so many people recommend this chair - it's SO comfortable! Easy to put together, feels sturdy. The seat and back are firm enough to give you support, yet still comfortable for long periods. It's designed to lean you back slightly, so if you prefer sitting upright, you either need some cushions or a different chair. Personally, I find it super comfortable. I got the yellow version, and it adds a cheerful burst of colour to my room.5
Great chairVerified ReviewerThis is a really lovely chair but the sides are really difficult to attach. This is the most difficult IKEA self build we have ever bought.3
Nice chair, but a struggle with attaching the sidesVerified ReviewerI bought this chair as I wanted a nice wingback chair (one-phrase pitch: a chair to fall asleep in), and had tried this chair in other places. Having tried to find something that completely fitted my requirements, I decided to go with this chair, which was delivered today. It's a good chair, perhaps a little firm, but that's what cushions are for! My main issue, though, was with attaching the sides. The illustration showed a chap nonchalantly slipping the hooks into the slots on the sides and everything fitting perfectly: cut to me, struggling with them for an hour and turning the air blue around me! Needless to say, I will never take that chair apart again...4
Yellow armchairVerified ReviewerWanted a pop of colour in our living room and this definitely delivers5
Brilliantly priced Wingback ChairVerified ReviewerI have two of these at home (the green hard wearing fabric and faux leather). Both are great looking chairs and quite comfortable with the fabric chair being more so over the faux leather (the faux leathers seat cushion feels thinner). Assembly was easy enough, struggled a little lining up the sides. My only real minor niggle with the chair is that, in my opinion, the seat cushion is slightly too thin. I think that the overall comfortableness of the chair would improve if it was just an inch thicker. That being said you’d struggle to find a good looking, hard wearing chair at this price anywhere else.4
Comfy chairVerified ReviewerReally nice comfy chair and easy to assemble.5
DelightedVerified ReviewerI purchased two of these chairs to replace existing chairs that were only 5 years old and cost four times as much. The strandmon are easy to assemble abd are really comfortable. Before buying the, I visited my branch of IKEA on numerous occasions to try out the showroom chairs and to use the chairs in the restaurant area. The latter were heavily used yet remained strong and comfortable. I'm 6'2" and the lumbar support and overall height is perfect for me. My only disappointment is that the footstools in this colour and material did not have a lid that lifts to reveal a useful storage space. Only one colour of footstool has the moveable lid - the rest are fixed.5
Love it .Verified ReviewerIt is a very stylish chair , and great value , very easy put together , well worth the money , in the market for another one , when an offer comes along .5
Love itVerified ReviewerLove it, as someone who has back issues, it was an ideal chair. I have even fallen asleep in it as well. Construction is easy but be prepared to have to apply a little effort in lining the main bits up, have someone assist you would be a good idea.5
Very comfortableVerified ReviewerVery comfortable5
BrilliantVerified ReviewerHad back problems for years had physiotherapy and he recommended getting a chair instead of sitting on sofa and omg it's helping me so much I highly recommended this chair I have now got 2 amazing5
Looks lovely in our officeVerified ReviewerLooks lovely in our office5
STRANDMON Wing chair, Nordvalla dark grey

From vintage sitting to modern life

Do you sometimes get a little nostalgic? We do. That’s why we created STRANDMON wing chair. Its design is inspired by an IKEA chair from the 50’s called MK – a favourite of the IKEA founder, Ingvar Kamprad. It was even on the cover of our first catalogue. But how could it be refreshed and adapted to today’s demands? Well, we found a few ways…

Like the quality. Back in the 50’s, most people used chairs just to sit in. Nowadays, we curl up in our chairs, drape our legs over armrests and eat where we sit. We put higher demands on our furniture. Our product developer Ulf Engström explains what STRANDMON has to put up with. “It’s tested to make sure it can take a person that sits and gets up at least 50,000 times. That’s the same as sitting and getting up once a day for 136 years.”

Now in bits and pieces

The aim was to create a comfortable and high quality chair that was a real bargain. For example, Ulf and his colleagues decided to put it in a flat pack. “It has made it possible to have a lower price and reduce emissions during transportation, explains Ulf. The flat pack will also make bringing home STRANDMON a whole lot easier, especially for everyone who doesn’t have a car that can fit a pre-assembled wing chair.

Some things never change

The wing chair perhaps had its golden era long ago, but who knows, it might be considered a must-have in people's homes once again. “People have changed the way they live since the 50's, but the need for affordable quality furniture is still the same. I think that is one of the reasons to why STRANDMON is so popular,” says Ulf. The flat pack and the lower price, together with new colours and patterns, will definitely make it easier for more people to find the right spot for STRANDMON in their home. And – of course – experience some well-deserved comfort.
