The design changed from whatALLISONThe design changed from what we saw in the store, it looks good but is not nearly as sturdy. Hopefully they last but we shall see.3
Great product!!ChristinaLove these chairs so far, I bought them to go with my Ikea table. Awesome product, very sturdy and attractive. Assembly was a little tricky but doable. These chairs go great with the Ikea table I purchased to go in my breakfast nook. Very happy with my purchase!5
Solid chairs but a littleLouiseSolid chairs but a little uncomfortable and weird seat.3
Great chairs, but be warned...Melissa S.Bought first set 16 years ago then replaced a few 5-6 years ago. LOVE THESE. Perfect look for our old colonial home and kitchen, very comfortable, black finish holds up well, durable solid wood construction. The issue was the joints especially in the corners of the seat.
HAD I BEEN SMART... I'd have put a monthly reminder on my phone to tighten the corner hex screws (and do the table at the same time). They have to be regularly maintained but it's a quick job. If you've lost a part, move the chair to the garage until you fix it because otherwise, you'll destroy it. Sounds like the new design may have addressed some of the issues.4
New Ingolf Chair Poor QualitySHANNON L.We recently had to purchase a replacement Ingolf chair for 1 of the 4 we purchased years ago. The new Ingolf is not the same quality as the original. They changed the materials for the chair and it is very light, not heavy and sturdy like the old ingolf. The new chair also has slightly different proportions. It is slightly shorter, has added braces for the legs (likely because of the lighter material) and visible screw holes on the sides. Very unhappy with the replacement. Would not buy any more from this product line.1
Sturdy and attractive Ingolf chairsKellyThe Ingolf chairs I purchased are very nice, high quality and well made. They were a little difficult to assemble with the included materials but a little easier with my own tools. The assembly took longer than expected but the final product was worth it!5
just OKMarkI bought several of these years ago. Solid, sturdy, heavy (but not too heavy), with NO visible hardware. These are a much lighter wood, the cross back needed to be inserted into the framing, and has visible hardware. I can live with them as they will not be seen with the others to compare.3
These chairs are lovely.Jo-AnneThese chairs are lovely.5

Bought 4, all are damaged within a month.Jennifer A.Bought 4 of these. One cracked due to a knot in the wood during assembly. 3 have damage to the cross back because the wood is so thin. One completely snapped in half on the back.1
Overall a great chair--but you'll need chair pads, and the directions leave a lot to be desired!Deborah O.The paint finish on the six gray chairs I purchase was perfect. The pieces fit together very snugly, and the chairs seem to be really well made. The seat of my old chairs had a sort of indentation for your butt. These don't--the seat is flat and uncomfortable--you're literally sitting on a board. You'll need to use thick chair cushions unless you're using them for corporal punishment. The picture-only directions that Ikea gave are mostly useless. There is probably a YouTube video out there, but here are a few suggestions from my trial-and-error assembly experience: Step 2: Insert the bolt and turn it one or two times, just enough for the threads to catch. You'll tighten them up later. Step 3: The pegs on the side braces are two different sizes, thus, the holes on the chair back and front legs are two different sizes to fit the pegs. There is nothing in the directions to indicate this, so be aware. After the first chair, the others took about 25 minutes to assemble.4

Good looking and works howGabrielaGood looking and works how expected.5
White ingolfLewisEasy assembly and very solid. The white Ingolf is heavier and feels like it can't be easily tipped. Important if children are around.5
Ingolf chairsjeriI absolutely love love these chairs!!! Is it possible to give 6 stars..5
Looks Great, but cheaply made and won’t last longHillary C.We’ve had four of these chairs now for six years. When we first got them, the seat bases scratched easily. A few weeks later, the paint on the sides and at the top corners chipped off. It’s impossible to find the exact paint or close to the color to try to fill it in. The. A few months go by and now one of the seat bases can almost completely come off. If you look at them from a distance they look decent (now six years old), but up close is a train wreck.
If you’re in the market for cheap chairs that look nice, and plan to replace your chairs every two or three years for the rest of your life, then keep buying these. I just wish they lasted longer than they did. I feel like they started to scratch and fall apart way to early. But then again this is IKEA and almost everything is cheaply made. The only thing I love about these, is a magic eraser cleans these up very nice and easily.2
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.
