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
Worth the High Price Tagsnoonan711I've been using this chair for 6 months now, daily and its super comfortable. I'm 6 feet tall and 200lbs, hard to find a supportive chair for my size. I love that it doesn't look like an office chair. My home office is in my bedroom, and I don't mind looking at this everyday. This was worth every penny!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 qualityIthiI’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
Just What We Were Looking ForsareidLove the color, style and comfort of this chair! Goes with the office furniture that we purchased at Ikea and have received many compliments on the look from family and friends!5
Office updateJax MimiGreat addition to our office update!5
Fab office chairKate SFComfortable, balanced, with fine finishing details; the neutral color goes well with our furnishings, plus its well-made & easy to assemble.5
Excellent Craftsmanship & Comforatable!MelodiousmeloniI bought 5 of these to use as kitchen chairs for our family. We bought a set similar here in San Antonio 25 years ago and they were vinyl, not leather. They were recovered twice in 25 years. These were EXACTLY what I was looking for. Well worth the $$$. Thank you IKEA. When we went looking for a matching table, we ended right back at IKEA! If I could give this higher than an EXCELLENT, I would! My husband put each chair together in about 15-20 minutes (battery powered drill was a huge help to tighten down screws).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
MiryambVery happy with the chair. Is really confortable5
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
Comfortable & stylish chair.Chayo4717I’m very pleased with this chair. Is super stylish plus comfortable.5
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.
