Two legs broke within 6 months.Matt W.We purchased four Lisabo chairs for our dining room. While attractive, they are shockingly poorly made. The first one splintered and collapsed after two weeks of normal use (dinnertime plus a small amount of daytime use). The second one collapsed today, six months after purchase, in just the same way, so we cannot write off the first one as a fluke. We assume the other two will follow and we’re going to replace them with something sturdy. When the first one broke we investigated whether we could return them but it was unclear; some sources said the products would have to be unused (still in the box) to return them, and we don’t live near enough to Ikea to drive there just in case. This product is a piece of junk that should not be on the market. We are out hundreds. This is a complete failure.1
Sturdy Wood ChairWillBeautiful, modern look. Nice, dark finish. The instructions for attaching the back rest could be made more clear. Overall, very easy assembly. We put 4 together in under 30 minutes.5
Good chair for the price.SarahGood chair for the price. Easy to assemble. I added the Hillared chair pad to make it more comfortable.5
Simple assembly, great lookJPThese were easy to assemble and look great. We've had them for about a month and they've held up well with a crowd of kids around, so far so good.4
Stripe quite noticeable on the seatMichaelBought these as temporary chairs until the ones we wanted come back in stock. They are nice looking but the darker stripe you'll see in the pictures is a little darker and more noticeable in ours. I'm not sure why there is the darker strip.3

Solid chair, great price.MarvinWe were looking for chairs to fit an existing table. With 3 young kids, these checked all the boxes: great size for kids and adults, easy to clean, and easy assembly. Very nice chair.5
Broken in less than 6 monthsKAYLA D.These chairs are beautiful and we purchased them because they seemed sturdy. After less than 6 months two of these chairs collapse beneath us. My spouse is 5"9 160lbs (not huge) and we aren't rough on them. Cannot reccomend. Huge safety concern.1
Less than three months and a leg brokeLindaWas sitting down and one of the legs broke, the collapse hurt my sons back and shoulder. We didn't even use the chairs daily maybe twice a week.

SolidAnneA very solid piece of furniture. Easy to assemble. I'm using it as a desk chair and the size and shape are perfect. I would recommend a chair cushion (e.g., Ikea Hillared) if you plan to sit for long time periods.5

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 veneer?
A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
"The idea behind LISABO was to create a series with the distinct feeling of wood, a floating expression and durable, easy to assemble construction. The round shapes and slanted edges create a hand-crafted look and we chose a matte lacquer on the ash veneer so the furniture will keep its natural wood feel. Each piece in the series work beautifully together or individually.”
