    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.

Great little table to match Applaro chairsColinFirst - an Ikea product that doesn't require assembly!!! Its a lovely stable little table. About right for a book and couple of pints or glasses of wine. Folds up nicely for storage. When not fold, it is very stable due to a clever use of pegs and pre-drilled holes to "lock" the table.5
I ordered these stools andKarlaI ordered these stools and they are just awesome! I would highly recommend them. The cool thing is that they can also be used as individual side tables. when siting outside.5
SO Happy!GeorjeanneMy daughter wanted this table last year when it first came out. We were unable to get it because it sold out so quickly. This year, when I saw it in stock, I ordered it to be sent to her. She is so thrilled with it!! She has a small porch with a glider and the table is the perfect size next to it.5
Love itnekishapI initially bought one of these for my porch and I like it so much, I returned to the store and purchased a second one. I love the color of the material used and that it sturdy enough to withstand this bipolar weather right now.5
Love this!DebThis table is a perfect addition to the other Applaro patio pieces. Easy to assemble, convenient, sturdy, stores well with little space. Also can be used indoors to hold snacks, etc. Very versatile piece. Perfect for young persons apartment5
Patio tableJoanneNice accent table to match our chairs and table. It was lost the first time I ordered but received it quickly once we realized that. I wish there were more items that IKEA shipped.4
Versatile little table/ stoolLisaGreat little outdoor stool to have for extra seating, or little table to use as needed for next to grill, for tabletop fountain, plants, etc. Folds compactly and easily when not needed, I started with one, but expanded my collection to 4 as I kept finding my uses for them!5
StoolMicheleThis is a great little stool. I use it basically as an end table to my outdoor sofa. I love the fact that it will also support weight just in case I need extra seating. It’s a great value for the price!5
Also works as a side tableSteveThis is a perfect size and height for an outdoor side table5
Just what I wanted ...Anne W.It took a bit of work to get these. Two trips to the store. First trip they were supposedly in stock, but couldn’t find them. Second trip I chose click and pick and that worked. They happily reside inside our hot tub redwood structure and since they’re backless, fit better than the chairs in this same line.5
Solid outdoor furniture lineTRACEYWe’ve added more to our Applaro collection after seeing how a table/chair set has fared under the Arizona heat/sun for 8 years. Regular restraining and maintenance are key to keeping these looking new foe years.5

Lovely & comes assembledPeppermint PExcellent value. Sturdy. Looks great. May buy two more!5
Outdoor stoolPoohbare5I love these and use them as little side tables rather than a stool5
good little outdoor sidejeanyusThis was to add to my outdoor furniture, it's great that it is portable. I was hoping it would be easy to collapse so I could hang and store and then pull out. When folding into table position, it has dowels that help hold it tight. That is good for secure stability, but not so great for easy fold away, it was difficult to pull apart. I am keeping it in table position for the summer, no big deal.4
Bunch of 5Love the quality and storage option5
Just the right size.Cap 53We are actually using as a side table by our patio furniture.5
The right size for the patioMijemoThis goes with the chairs I purchased a few months back and I am so happy to have found the right table to go with them!4
ÄPPLARÖ Stool, outdoor, foldable brown stained

Furniture for you and the environment

Wood is a fantastic material: flexible and beautiful, durable and renewable. Ever since IKEA started, we’ve used wood as a raw material. We’re a global company and have a great responsibility to ensure that our production has a positive effect on people and the environment throughout the world. That’s why our goal for 2020 is that all wood which we use is to come from more sustainable sources. With the ÄPPLARÖ series, we’ve already achieved this goal – by finding various new wood species to work with.

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.

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.
