Product details

10-year Warranty. Read about the terms in the warranty brochure.

Suitable for business use.

This ergonomic office chair has lots of functions that allow you to easily adapt the chair to your body.

Height-adjustable seat allows you to adjust the height so that back and legs are at a 90° angle.

With automatic tilt tension, your body weight determines how much resistance the backrest offers. This counter-pressure helps you keep an active posture in your chair.

Synchronized tilt mechanism allows the chair to move with you. The backrest moves more than the seat when you lean back, so torso/hips open up. This improves circulation and keeps energy levels up.

As you recline, the synchronized tilt mechanism allows feet to stay on the floor while your gaze remains straight ahead. Your chest stretches without adding pressure on thighs, improving circulation.

Adjustable seat depth enables proper back support and even weight distribution across the seat cushion. This prevents circulation from being cut off at the knees and reduces knee pressure.

Backrest can be adjusted to provide support in all the right places and helping your body to maintain a naturally good posture.

Adjustable lumbar support helps maintain the correct posture while sitting which reduces strain on muscles on your lower back.

The padded armrests provide good support and comfort for your arms.

GRANN cover is made of grain leather which is a very high-quality leather. As it ages it becomes softer and develops a darker tone and fine patina.

A safety function locks the castors when no one is sitting in the chair and keeps it securely in place when you stand up.

The castors are designed to provide ease of movement and maneuverability on both carpeted and hard floors as well as on uneven surfaces.

Almost greatJohn L.The chair feels high quality, smoothly reclines, no creaks or noises. I have not had any problems with the back or seat sliding out of position, they are secure for me. It was simple to put together. The cushion is firm but comfortable. Wheels roll smoothly. However, almost a GREAT chair, aside from the nonsensical convex hump in the back cushion that's trying to be "lumbar support". I'm 5'10 and this hump juts into the small of my back, pushing me forward, so I can't fully sit into the chair which makes my back tired. The chair would be a billion times more comfortable if the back was concave to cradle the back, like, you know, how chairs used to be before ergonomics crazytown. I just want a minimal chair that cradles my back, not juts into it like a balled up towel. At the very least, the back should go up higher so the hump can actually fit into my lumbar. IKEA: Please reconsider the "lumbar hump" in this chair for your next iteration.3
Perfect.Helen C.Quality leather. Comfortable. Good looking. It's perfect.5
Very disappointedJulia R.While this chair is stylish, it does not hold up to standard daily office use. After using this chair almost daily for 7 months, it has developed an extremely obnoxious loud squeaking sound (not fixable with WD40) every time you move the smallest amount. Additionally, one of the buttons on the seat popped off, out of nowhere. Of course, this happened about a week after the "return after opening" day count. This chair costs a lot of money for the quality [you don't] get. Very disappointed and don't think it's worth the price. Buyer beware.1
Office chair for home officeWillie C.Love the color and leather that matches perfectly the blue Alex desk that I bought for my home office.5
Great but FLAWEDRicardo R.I bought this chair about 3 years ago. I LOVED it, however it had one flaw from day one. The bolt that holds the back/lumbar support in place would loosen and the back would slide down. Over and over again, I would have to re-tighten it to hold it in place. An annoyance, but not a deal-killer. But then, just recently, the bolt's threads became stripped and now it won't even stay in the chair. For such an expensive chair, I would expect a better system to adjust the back. The rest is perfect.2
Comfy and sturdyLeslie O.I am loving this chair so far! I've used it for a week for work at the computer. The material is soft and my skin doesn't stick to it. I'm happy with the quality.5
Great Office Chair for shorter peopleLISA L.Love the color! Definitely comfortable to sit in for hours. I wished the bottom would come out a little more. I am 5’4” and it’s a little short for my legs. However I have a bigger butt than most. I’ve had it for a few months and it looks just the same as the day we bought it.4
Noisy and uncomfortableGaetan D.The lumbar support is way too big and too firm for me, causing back pain. It is also very noisy/squeaky. The reclining strength is not adjustable, so that's useless too for me (too loose). I'm just beyond the 180 days, otherwise I'd return it.1
SplurgedJoAnnThe cost of this chair made me question my decision at first but it is so comfortable and sturdy. It was very easy to put together for IKEA and a beautiful, comfortable office chair.5
very comfortableYinghsuanThe wheel is easy to move, and the cushion is very comfortable. This chair is beautiful than it is in the photo.5
Poor quality controlMildredBack was manufactured crooked1
Comfortable, stylishTracyWhat a gorgeous chair. Buttery soft leather with a fantastic warranty. We love it!5
Buttton came offAnupam G.I really liked the chair but one of the buttons on the seat came off. I'm not sure what to do now - given the way it's constructed, it impossible to restitch the button without ripping the whole thing off. Will likely buy a different new chair now.2
Best office chairCindy S.You will not find a better, 100% leather, chair for this price. Setting it up takes some time, the "motor" is heavy. Once you put it together it will be awesome. I have used it for almost 5 years and it has not lost any of its comfort.5
Fantastic desk chairAnnemarieI waited ~18 months for this chair to be back in stock in black. We love it, the leather feels great and support for your back is perfect. Also nice wheels on it.5
great chairCourtneyvery comfortable and attractive5
best office chairTessIt's perfect. The chair has a very comfortable back support. I can sit without pain, I use it as an office chair paired with my desk I bought from Ikea (Lerhamn.) It matches my desk and my hardwood floor. The comfort and support from this chair is why I bought it!5
THE BEST DESK CHAIRJill S.This chair needs to come back. It is SO comfortable. I had to order one on eBay because ikea has been sold out forever and it was well worth paying more than retail for this than keeping the other leather chair which has hard plastic armrests. This is seriously the best desk chair ever. Lumbar support, lean-backable, soft and cushy… I love it.5
Comfortable ChairWilliamA very comfortable desk chair with the perfect size to fit a regular desk and a computer desk.5
Finally jumped some hurdles to get one! Note on the backrest for other buyers.Caol B.I’ve been looking at this chair for about a year, finally seen it was in stock and went the extra length to procure one. Great chair, love the leather, easy assembly, definitely heavy (but adds to the sense of quality). One issue I noticed and read in the reviews is the backrest does wobble and the knob eventually loosens causing the backrest to slip down. This can be fixed, as the backrest mounting base (not mounting plate) can be easily disassembled. The mounting base has two plastic rails that hold the backrest mounting plate. By removing these rails and adding a thin layer of cardboard to fill the gap and fitting it back in snug, the wobble & knob loosening issues are fixed. I also cut a piece of wood pencil and fit it under the backrest knob for extra support. I love this chair, and I can't wait for it to patina and I never want to get out of it! Thanks Ikea!5

Leather is a durable material that we strive to produce as responsibly as possible. That’s why we only use by-products from the food industry and we have requirements for traceability to slaughterhouses, thereby ensuring ethically correct slaughters. The materials are then treated so that they’re usable for home decoration products. In this process we don’t allow the use of chrome, which is potentially harmful to both humans and the environment.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

The challenge with ALEFJÄLL swivel chair was to combine retro style from the 1950s with the demands on function and comfort we have today. It is fully adjustable to your body, without looking technical, so it fits at home as well as in the office. I think chairs should look good from behind and I am particularly pleased with how the adjustable backrest integrates with the metal frame. ALEFJÄLL is comfortable, reliable and convivial – functional and stylish at the same time.
