Good for the price, but buyer beware of two things.BarbaraI needed a stool to go with a new kitchen counter/ island. Mostly for "perching," standing computer work, and snack meals. Dalfred is good. I like it a lot. But even with my yogi body, used to sitting on hard surfaces, I can only sit/ perch for about an hour before my sit bones hurt! HAHAHA. Which is ok. I have to get moving! Also, assembly was a bit tricky. I needed someone handier than me to get the legs on. A couple of the holes needed drilling out.4
Love these stools!!TinaLove these stools!!5
chair supports my weightRyanIt was easy enough to assemble and supports my weight, although I'm not that heavy, so if you are a bigger person I wouldn't take that as a guarantee for you.
It was also fun to spin around to make higher or lower.5
Perfect Kitchen Bar StoolsDEBORAHI looked for months to find the perfect Bar Stool for our kitchen! I was ready to settle for more expensive stools when I discovered IKEA’s Dalfed black stools!5
Beautiful designCarolinaI love the way they look but they’re not comfortable.
The size of the sitting is slippery and small2
Another terrific stoolLINDAMy husband loved the design and style of this adjustable stool for his garage workspace. He even added an upholstered cushion covered with leftover leather and attached it with heavy duty staples for added comfort.5
Sleek and minimal.BRITTANYSleek and minimal.5
Fun and functionalMarcelaWe got this stool for a work area. I think it looks great and is useful. While assembly is easy, pay attention to the length of the screws…5

Small stoolMARYKThis is perfect to me. I used it in my garage while working on art projects. It's easy to move around. Would not recommend for a larger person.5
Great spinny chairsTajeeThese chairs were very easy to put together if you follow instructions. I love the fact that they spin 360 degrees and to lower or raise it you just need to spin. HOW FUN!5
Love itShariSulSuper easy to put together. I love the stools. They rotate up and down easily and smoothly. They are sturdy as well.5
Affordable, classic, comfortable stoolKerry RKI love these stools. The design has improved over the years by making the lower ring (foot rest) less susceptible to rust (which is what happened to my first set of these). I wish they were still offered in the lighter birch color. That is seriously my only complaint, and it's not a big deal.5
StylishSonia97I brought three of these stools a few weeks ago and I love them! They are very stylish, comfortable and sturdy. The assembly was a little difficult. I do recommend having a drill to put it together. Doing it by hand was a struggle but overall, amazing stool.4
2 out of 3 were goodMHUNTI bought 3 of these stools for our island counter. We assembled 2 of them with no problems, and then when it came to the third one the threading is either too tight or the pole is too big because it it completely jammed and you cannot unthread it to get it off. We've tried everything but now we're down a stool and we're just going to have to throw it out.3
GreatJennifer808Priced right and easy to assemble.5
Bought this in the as-is section. Glued a roundDebratBought it as a table base for a bedside table/desk. Glued a round table top to it and now I have a one of a kind piece!4
Easy to assembleLPFuhrReasonable price adjustable stool4
Nice bar stool and the priceKristinaNanWe had this bar stool for 5 year, they still look and work good. actually went to ikea to look for a new one, just because i think it is time for our kitchen little makeover. But I don't see anything new that I like. Will keel what we have already.5
Excellent multi-use itemLord MardukThis is a nicely put together barstool that can double as a small table for a nightstand in a small room or a plant stand.The only thing is a taller person near 225 pounds might make the top a little loose over time.For the price it is an excellent deal.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.
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.
What is solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favorite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the tree species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood.
High level dining area
If you want a pleasant dining area but have limited space, a good tip is to choose chairs and a table in bar height. They take less room and can also serve as a work space. Choose between several different heights, styles and materials.
