beautiful and easy to assembleNicole M.It is the first time that I put together a piece of furniture and it was easy for me to put it together, of course you need patience and follow the instructions well. I like that you can remove the seat and wash it if you need to5

Chairs and stoolsAracylI was looking for chairs and stools that match. I found the perfect ones. They were out of stock for a long time but a got them. I’m happy.5

Quality & comfortable chair at affordable priceMaryWe like the simple lines, and the chair pad is firm. We have 5, 4 as dining to go with a grey dining table from Living Spaces. We added #5 as a chair for support in a Zoom yoga/pilates class. We looked around for one, then decided that the weight of this chair makes it safer, and in case we needed one to replace 1 of the 4 for dining, or supplement a gathering at our house, we have one. Best decision we made!! The last time we were there, the attendants were even polite. Not often for Ikea, but nice when one can also feel welcome at the store.5

LoveJulieI love this chair. It is very pretty and sturdy, but lightweight enough making it easy for me to move. I do wish they had replacement covers available for the cushion again!5
ComfortableMonicaThe chairs look great in my dining room. They were some what easy to assemble. My only big issue is that if and when you wash the removable seat cover you have to unscrew the top of the chair off, it's inconvenient.3
EasymuttilovesikeaEasy to put together! Perfect for a breakfast nook.5
Comfortable with back support!!bevdonLove the back support while sitting. Especially l like that none of the hardware (screws) are exposed, everything is hidden underneath the chair. Only thing that would have made these perfect would be just a tad more cushioning on the seat.4
Needed 2 more chairs....Mar RoWhen we moved to CA, we brought minimal furniture with us - we're in a smaller space now, and didn't want a large dining set...but we often have 6+ people for dinner. We bought the EKEDALEN table/chairs and it only came with 4 chairs - so we returned to IKEA and purchased 2 more. The set is LOVELY - sturdy, aesthetically simple and clean cut. Perfect for us!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 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.”
