Sturdy, solid, firmThomas T.I love this stool. It’s heavy and solid. My only complaint is how uncomfortable the seat cushion is. I took the cover off to add a small, thin chair pad underneath (a MALÖRTSMOTT) and it’s so much more comfortable to sit on.4
Perfect for my pantry nook!KRISTI G.Our new home has a small desk nook in the pantry, which is at counter height, for meal/recipe planning. This stool is perfect for the space. It’s so comfortable, especially with the swivel seat, plus having the washable cover is a huge bonus since it’s being used around food. Since it’s backless, it tucks under the counter completely when not in use, to free up valuable floor space in the small room.5
Terrific StoolLORI B.The chair was nice, but it wasn't comfortable for me. It would have made a terrific stool if it weren't for my lower back issues.4
Good chair to sitYuan-Shen H.Very conformable5
Great stool but…SHAUN S.This stool was great and very durable. I only rated it with 4 stars because it didn’t have wheels, which will make it difficult ti maneuver around my standing desk with ease. Didn’t even notice this until I took it out of the box! Still a great stool if you’re stationed in one place and don’t move around much.4
Exactly what I wanted!PieterI had been searching for a stool that I could use at my desk at a regular height but also sit with my partner sometimes at his standing desk so this was the perfect answer. It doesn’t feel cheep, the seat tilts purposefully to be comfortable at whatever angle you’re sitting on, and the cylinder very effectively and smoothly raises & lowers. The chair is exactly what I was looking for and at the right price (most of these types of chairs are wicked expensive)! Only gripe would be that the cylinder is not technically connected to the base so sometimes when you pick it up to move it the base falls off. It is designed to work this way, with gravity keeping it into the base when you’re sitting on it. I’ve gotten used to it and it’s not annoying enough to give this product anything less than 5 stars!5
Just right!ShannonI got this for my painting and sewing space. Easy to assemble, good quality, stable and comfy! I wanted something low profile, and it helps keep my posture straight.5
ComfortableGREGFunction and form is balanced with use.5
Surprisingly comfortable!KATHARINE L.I spent 4 hours on it yesterday, trading off with standing at my adjustable-height IKEA desk. Now I don't have to adjust the desk height when I want to be sitting. The cushion is the right combination of comfy soft and firm; with the ability to flex the angle, I can get to different positions, stretch and rearrange without getting up. It's just what I needed. Great design. Thanks IKEA!5
So pleased with these inMicheleSo pleased with these in our revamped office.5

Last desk chair you’ll buySHARIEasy to assemble!! Great on the back and legs. A great addition to my home office!5
Great productIshaanGreat product5
Awesome!Sarah S.I bought this stool for my sewing desk, which is a bit higher up than most desks. I needed a seat that could adjust a little bit higher. The stool encourages good posture and active sitting which is great for your back. The quality is great and it's not too expensive. And it's so simple to put together. Maybe my favorite IKEA purchase to date!5
Best office stool ever!Mj W.I have bought so many office chairs/stools, over the years, and none of them have worked out (even ones with waterfall edges.) This stool was a little pricier than I wanted to pay but it is a godsend and it has an unheard of 10 year warranty! This is the only stool I can sit on for extended periods of time without it giving me back or nerve pain (which I get from every other chair/stool.) I use this at the adjustable desk (I also bought from Ikea), my sofa table, my kitchen counter, etc. My only wish is that it came in different cushion colors. If it did, I would buy multiples!5
VR ChampLISAAfter Hubby broke a computer chair and my favorite velvet stool :/ , think we found a winner lol. So far holding up well to Echo VR play.5
Not comfortableSteveNot comfortable3
I must have for peoplePjI must have for people who study a lot or read a lot or spend time with their computer a lot5
Works great!TimoThis stool is pretty much exactly what I wanted for my standing desk, when I just want something to lean against as I shift throughout the work day. It seems to be pretty solid build quality and the fabric top comes off to be washed.5
The perfect chairGREGORYFor whatever reason, I have never been able to find an office/desk chair that worked for me. Usually, they don't go high enough for the desk I am at, or the seat puts too much pressure on the back of my thighs, etc. So, when I decided to renovate my home offfice (I work remotely, now) I did two important things: I purchased IKEA's adjustable standup desk and I bought this chair. AWESOME! This chair works for whatever height and position I feel like working in at the moment—and adjusting takes just a second. The actual seat that tips with your weight is brilliant and so simple. Thanks IKEA!5

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
