Product details

The leather ages beautifully and acquires a nice patina over time.

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

The safety casters have a pressure-sensitive brake mechanism that keeps the chair in place when you stand up, and releases automatically when you sit down.

Seat and backrest are adjustable in height and give you maximum support regardless of your height.

You get good support for your thighs and back since the seat depth is adjustable.

You can lean back with perfect balance, as the tilt tension mechanism automatically adjusts the resistance to suit your weight and movements.

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
Good product little bit heavyVaroujikGood product little bit heavy but it’s Ok Thanks5
Office chairPatricia V.I have a very small office and this chair is a perfect size and is extremely comfortable.5
Comfortable chair for people with shorter legsLindaI had bought two other office chairs for my home office and they cut off the circulation to my legs because the seats were too deep.5
Superior Quality with a Questionable Valuebelo123I had gotten the Alefjall (sorry, I don't know how to add the special characters) office chair recently and I have blown away by the quality of materials and comfort of this chair. The leather is soft and supple and the metals feel nice and sturdy. If there is one aspect of this chair I'm as big of a fan of is the somewhat clicky and shakey seat adjustment mechanism. Whenever I roll back or forward in the chair you hear a slight click from the cushion sliding mechanism in this chair. the other gripe I have is the somewhat stubborn wheels on this chair when rolling around, but could easily be replaced. Besides those two nitpicks, this chair is of excellent quality. the only question I have is the value of this chair for the price. $300 is a lot to drop on a chair when it seems you might be able to get better bells and whistles from other chairs at this price point. Ultimately you have to decide whether the aesthetic and function match with the price.5
Good Chair, Major FlawZach007123I really like how this chair looks and feels to sit in. After only about a week of normal use however, the backrest of the chair has loosened and started to rotate while sitting in the chair. This is incredibly annoying and uncomfortable when trying to sit in the chair and focus.2
Looks great!trish333The Alefjall office chair was easy to assemble, is very comfortable, and looks great in my home office!5
Issues with qualityAnonymousI’ve been waiting for 3 weeks so I was really happy when I received today. And I found one of the more important parts broken... The box was not damaged so I’m wondering about the quality of the product. I called the customer service but no one was available.1
Love this chair but ......SimonJ71I don't seem to be able to lock out the tilt feature, Am I missing something?3
Comfy!TallSwedeMy husband bought this chair for his office and the rest of his coworkers liked it so much that we bought two more. Simplistic style, classy looking, and very comfortable to sit in.5
Comfy and substantial leather chairchicagogirl13I had an IKEA leather office chair for a long time and got rid of it when I redecorated. It was still a great chair, but my room needed a new look. When I started looking again, I visited traditional furniture stores and office supplies stores and found lots of chairs that were either cheap or uncomfortable or both. And, most office chairs are designed for big people. I am 5 feet tall and need a chair that is scaleable to my needs. This chair is scaleable, fits with my new decor, and the leather is real leather. I expect to get many years of use out of this chair.5
wonderful chairTiroine-beautiful, understated mid-century design (please convey our appreciation to the designer) -the first office chair i've sat on with real back support -good quality pebble-grain leather (we got the black and love it) -really straight forward instructions (greatly appreciated as we are not handy people) We just put together two of them. i'm sitting on one, and sitting up straight. (i'm 5'4--have no problem w/ with the height of height of chair.)5
Office updateJax MimiGreat addition to our office update!5
High Quality ComfortValeenI have been searching for a nice leather office chair that would be comfortable. I wanted a more classic look that would slide under the desk even with the arms. This was perfect! I have it with my Hemnes desk in my home office.5
Worth the money!HiroseIf you are looking for a desk chair, this is it! I wouldn't recommend you to buy it without a sit on it. You will fell love in it immediately. I didn't plan to buy a desk chair. Then one day I just saw this brown leather chair in the show room and it just caught my eyes and somehow attracted me to sit on it. The second I sat on it I love it! It felt so comfortable and supportive to my waist and bottom and my arms. I didn't buy it right a way because of the price. Since that day I feel more and more uncomfortable with my chairs at home and couldn't get the brown chair out of my head. In short, I bought it the third time I came across it in store and never regret buying it! It still make me feel comfy and I just wanna say it worth the money!5
Love itPababearWe needed an office chair that had a low profile and comfortable. It fits the bill.5


What are leathers, skins and hides?

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.
