Great look!MadhuraGreat look!5
Great chairAlexWe just moved in to Austin and had to furnish our place overnight. These chairs are just perfect, good quality, cushions is very comfortable and way easy to assemble (less than 10 min).5
Poor qualityLaura P.The chair is not the same quality as the bench and table. It’s rough in places as if it’s partially sanded wood. I started assembly and couldn’t get one side in and then looked at the back and felt like I was going to get a splinter.1
Amazing and worthyAliAmazing and worthy5
Almost perfectShaunaI like almost everything about this chair. The only thing that is "missing" is that I wish it had a coordinating armchair of the same design.4
Perfect fitTabithaThe color complements my grandmother's old table beautifully. And it was so easy to put together. The seat is very comfortable and sits me at the table perfectly.5

I really like this productCIDALIAI really like this product the chairs are very comfortable5
Defective/unable to assembleKelley S.I bought 4 of these and 2 were missing parts. I called customer service and they said it would take 7-10 business days for the parts. It did indeed take 2 weeks. They sent the wrong parts. I just called customer service AGAIN and they said it will take another 7-10 business days to get the parts. They said I should go to IKEA in person as if every person is able-bodied and can just go and do things. The reason I ordered online and had them picked up is because I was unable to do it for myself.1
Nice chairsMargaretVery attractive and sturdy chairs for the price. Would have liked a bit more cushion seating, but it isn’t uncomfortable to sit in them for 1-2 hours at a time.4
Great ValueLeeanitaI was surprised at the ease these chairs went together. They are a wonderful Value for the money. Very well built,5
Good for short term useHeidi F.We have bought five of these and two have broken in under two years. The front legs have pulled apart when being moved around on wood floors. These were good for the time we had them, but don't expect them to last forever!3
Well Priced - Some flawsBenedettaI love the look of the chairs and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again. However, some things were difficult to put together as they didn’t line up easily. We got it done and feel confident the chairs will hold up. But I did get a splinter from the top of the chair. My husband came close to getting one. The wood parts are rough. We lightly used steel wool to smooth them down. It worked. We hope the cushions don’t flatten out. Right now, they’re perfect.4
Very goodNORMAVery good5

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 foam?

Foam is excellent as upholstery in seating and mattresses since it provides good comfort and can relieve pressure by moulding to the body. Depending on the properties and feel you’re looking for, there are several qualities to choose from, like high-resilience foam and memory foam. The raw material for foam was previously based entirely on virgin fossil materials. But today, together with our suppliers, we’ve begun developing a material that is renewable and recycled.

Function solution

Simply remove and wash

A chair probably is the most used piece of furniture in the home. It should be able to cope with everything from sticky children's fingers to quick breakfasts and long dinners. That's why it can be practical to choose a chair with a removable, washable cover from the start. Then you won't have to buy a new chair or re-cover your old one if an accident should happen. You can simply remove the cover and wash it. Afterwards the chair is like new again. A clever choice, isn't it?

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

“For me, the dining area is the given center of the home. My idea with EKEDALEN series was to make a dining set for everything from large dinners to doing homework and crafts. The table is easy to extend, and since the legs follow the table when it’s extended, guests won’t have table legs in the way. The chairs are comfortable and the covers are machine-washable. And you can squeeze together on the bench to make room for everyone. Flexible and functional for modern homes.”
