    The best way to extend the life of your wooden outdoor furniture is by cleaning it regularly, not leaving it outdoors unprotected more than necessary, and re-staining it on a regular basis.

    Clean: Use a mild soapy solution. Wipe dry with a clean dry cloth.

    Maintenance: To prevent the surface from drying out and cracking, and moisture from penetrating into the wood, we recommend you to re-stain the furniture on a regular basis, for example once or twice a year.

    Storing: If possible, store in a cool dry place indoors. If the furniture is stored outside, cover it with a waterproof cover. After a rain or snowfall, wipe off excess water or snow from flat surfaces. Allow air to circulate to avoid condensation.

  • This chair has been tested for home use and meets the requirements for durability and safety, set forth in the following standards: EN 581.
  • By using a renewable material like wood in this product, we avoid using fossil or finite materials.

    We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.

Love the look but hate the weaknessNicoleLove this reclining dining relaxing chair. Unfortunately, one of them broke splitting along the base of the chair within a few uses.2
Great chair - Great price!AmyGreat chair - Great price! Love the foldup design, but also relatively lightweight for easy carrying when you want to store it away.5
Solid!NANCYGoodbye wobbly patio chairs. This one is rock solid and reclines! Easily assembled by one person in about 15 minutes.5
Love these chairsAysunThese are lovely chairs that can be folded and store when it’s not in use. It’s durable and pretty.5
Great chairSusanI bought this chair to go on my new patio. It was easy to assemble, and looks great. I like the reclining capability.5
Front porch RenoDelorisI am very pleased with the style and look this item brings to the front of my home. Very comfortable and attractive.5
Comfortable with cushions, mobileSandraWe bought these because we needed chairs that were easy to move. Because they fold and are lite weight we can use them inside and outside of our cottage and with cushions they are comfortable enough to recline in and watch TV. I’m not sure these would support a big person who weighs over 220 lbs though5
Love it!!!MARALove it!!!5
Wooden chairDEBORAHGreat chair. Love the functionality—can lean back to almost laying down. Assembly took more time than expected. Quality is good.5
My new patioMichelleI absolutely love these chairs. They were very easy to put together. They are very sturdy and they fold up for easy storage.5
applaro lawn chairrochelleIt was easy to assemble. I Love it, it reclines & very comfortable. Great for wide loaders. I Love the design. I purchased several pieces last year in hope that it wouldn't be discontinued. My girlfriend purchased chairs as will. LOVE this series.5
Cheap material. Easy to brokeSamCheap material. Easy to broke3
Great, classy patio chairsColinPurchased two of these a month ago. Look great on my balcony. Look and feel like more expensive teak furniture. Each chair took maybe 5 minutes to assemble. The instructions where very well illustrated.5
Applaro is AwesomeKristina M.Everything in this product line is very durable, and holds up well, even in the Florida humidity. We polish / clean once a month with Pledge Spray, and the color has remained in tact a year and a half later. These chairs recline back, fairly far, which is quite nice. The drawback, is they can be difficult to move around. I found adding some felt pads to the bottom definitely helped with that. They do also fold if you need to store them. Overall, a great chair.4
Great chair / even better price.JOSEGreat chair / even better price.5
Cute chairsGinaTook one star off as when you move the chairs, they rattle around and sound cheap when doing so. Otherwise they’re pretty comfortable even without cushions and recline well. Definitely would recommend cushions as the wood is a bit harsh and the corners are sharp. Been waiting for ikea to restock cushions and check daily, but they’ve been having a lot of issues restocking products lately so I’m not holding my breath.4
What I needed.GARYI needed a reasonably sized chair for small outdoor balcony. The price was quite good. Typical IKEA instructions were simple, but needed to followed EXACTLY. It also looks good, and I'll be happy to have a guest over soon.5

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.

Today we’ve achieved the goal that all the wood which we use for our outdoor furniture comes from more sustainable sources, which means that it is certified or recycled wood. The transition has been a given for us at IKEA, but it has also been a challenge. Much of the wood used for our outdoor furniture comes from Southeast Asia, where it has been difficult to gain a good insight into the entire process from forest and sawmills to the factory. But through close cooperation with suppliers and local authorities, we’ve achieved the result, says Ulf Johansson, who works with wood supply and forestry. "More sustainable forestry requires perseverance and long-term thinking, since profits are not achieved quickly, and many of our growers are small companies with limited resources. But we have been able to support them in this process both financially and in terms of knowledge-sharing", says Ulf.

Tough demands on life outdoors

Outdoor furniture must be durable, and throughout history, teak, which is a very hard wood, has been a popular choice of material. But the availability of teak produced in a more sustainable way is far too small, so to achieve our goal, we started looking for alternative wood types. Ove Lindén is an engineer and was working for IKEA in Malaysia when he discovered acacia's positive qualities in the early 2000s. "At the time it was not used for furniture, but was grown mainly for the paper industry. But when we saw people also made fence posts from acacia, we supposed it was resistant to rotting and durable ‒ and would also suit outdoor furniture. In addition, it has a beautiful color tone, just like teak", says Ove, and explains how acacia, which grows mainly in Malaysia and Vietnam, is grown on plantations where IKEA can have a good overview of the entire necessary production chain.

A type of wood to trust

Today, we use acacia for, among other things, ÄPPLARÖ, one of our most long-living outdoor furniture series. Over the years, new items have been added, and today ÄPPLARÖ is found in outdoor environments throughout the world. Ove Lindén has a theory of why it has become so long-lived. "It's a timeless and neutral series that suits many surroundings. In addition, over the years we’ve been able to streamline production and thereby keep the price down." The discovery of acacia has made us curious about finding more wood species from sustainable forestry. The journey continues towards higher quality and increased durability ‒ for you who use the furniture, yet also for people and the environment throughout the world where our furniture is manufactured.

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.


Lovable durable acacia

Acacia is a naturally durable and sturdy hardwood for outdoor use because of the high density of its wood fibers. For maximum protection it’s pre-treated with wood stain. By re-staining now and then you can enjoy it for many years.
