Cheap painted pine with plastic connectorsSeanDon't be fooled by the image, these chairs are painted pine, very light and low quality. I got 6 of them with my table and only put two together before I decided to use my old chairs of much higher quality. One of the two I put together had spilled glue on it that when I took it off ripped the very thin layer of paint. The connectors that you attach the top of the chair to the frame are plastic. The X part in the middle is extremely thin wood.1
Beautiful, but metal connectors are too soft, and chair needs constant tightening.KathleenThe metal connectors are made of a soft metal and fall apart. Ikea does not seem to carry spare parts, so we’ve dismantled two chairs for parts when they became unrepairable. I haven’t bought new because they no longer sell natural stained wood, only painted, and only black, white, and grey. IKEA seems to hate color these days, and we don’t like the other chair styles, so we may be forced to look elsewhere.4
Black and white chairsJudyThe black chairs are not as good quality as white ones. Black ones are smaller and lighter weight and more plasric to put together. Wish I had bought all white Ingolf since they look the same but black are clearly not good quality. Thanks for listening!3
New "design" is dangerous!DannyWe bought a few of these earlier this year and they are quite flimsy compared to the older generation. Tonight we had one collapse while my ~100lb daughter was sitting in it. She was injured. We are throwing these all out! Not safe! 1
Good chairs!DanielThese were easy to put together and feel very sturdy. Time will tell, but they seem a tremendous upgrade over our previous chairs (also from Ikea)5
Wooden chair Mdgood quality. Additional fasteners could have been included.5
Great chairsBenjaminThese are great chairs and easy to put together.5
BeautifulAprilBeautiful comfortable chairs. We have eight now and we love them :)5
They were well made and reasonably pricedCliffordThey were exactly what I needed and in stock.5
Perfect sizeDarleneThis chair us the perfect size for the expandable table5
Solid chairLauraWe purchased 6 of these for the dining room. Easy to assemble, solid chairs. My husband is 6'5 and I'm 5'1....usually one of us feels awkward in a chair the other is comfortable in. These are great for each of us! Wonderful chair!5
Robust chairClaudia C.This is great chair! Very robust and good price5
Flimsy backKimberlyI have two kids (ages 9& 10), we’ve had these chairs about a year and an half, and the cross part on the back of 2 of the chairs have gotten broken (one by each kid). I have one boy and one girl so it’s not like I have a bunch of rowdy boys etc. so while the chairs are fine if you’re careful I wouldn’t recommend for people with kids.3
Great chairsTiffany C.Very easy to put together, though I needed a power drill to get attach the seat to the rest of the frame securely.4
Not like they used to makeLauraI bought two chairs to match 4 we already own. The 4 we have are very heavy and solid. These look the same but are noticeably lighter. Definitely not the same quality. Also one arrived damaged as I opted for delivery. They were not packed well at all in the larger shipping box. I recommend you pick them up in store if you can.2
Very nice and sturdy.SusanVery nice and sturdy.5
X part breaks easilyJonathanThese chairs are really nice-looking, but the X part in the back breaks easily. I had to replace one less than a year after my original purchase (thankfully Ikea covered it for free) and now another one broke and they won't replace it since it's no longer within a year of purchase.2
Ingolf chairKarenGreat looking chair !5
Ingolf chairsLuisellaI bought these to replace my 20 years old Ikea chairs! Here is to 20 more years!!5
Doesn't go the distance with kids or heavy useJohnWe are now replacing these chairs for the third time. Grand kids keep breaking the "X" part on the back as these are very flimsy. Soft wood leaves marks from normal use. If you don't use them much, or maybe just adult use they are a reasonable option, but they don't hold up to heavy daily use.3

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.
