I love my Markus ChairBenI love this new Markus Chair that I purchased I use it as a daily and it hasn’t failed me yet. When I’m not using to do work on the desktop I use it to lay back and watch movies or YT videos. No complaints but if so I’ll update. I my honest opinion before I spent hundreds maybe thousands on a true gaming chair I wanted to try this chair out first then graduate up.5
Great chair for work fromLGreat chair for work from home office.4
Very nice chairBobI recently had to replace my office chair, due to some back and muscle issues. I checked out some chairs at IKEA. I eventually decided to go with MARKUS. It was the correct choice. It provides great support. It also has the type of seat I was looking to find that allows a comfortable position for my long legs.5
Like 👍👍👍NataliiaThe best choice5
Comfortable and affordableAlvinA comfortable, affordable office chair that was relatively easy to assemble. It’s exactly what I needed for working from home.5
Great Home office chairIVONNEComfortable enough for a person who is 5’9” . Great quality for price.5
Great craft room chairDebboVery comfortable with lots of great adjustments5
Best Desk ChairMarkoDI purchased this chair 3 years ago and I have been very satisfied. I almost panicked when I thought, for just a moment, that it was no longer offered by Ikea. I also like how it travels. Easily broken down and fits great in the car.5
Unexpectedly great chairtmar76I tried and tried to look for a chair that would fit my needs and this ended up suiting my overall needs. There were so many shoddy and cheaply constructed chairs that were very unsatisfying. I returned a few and no one had any that were comfortable for the long term. This also has a really good build quality to it that has lasted several months under heavy use. I just ordered a chair from another manufacturer thinking that it would be the chair that I was really looking for(all mesh and adjustable headrest) but it was not as sturdy and rattled in a lot of places right out of the box. If you haven't tried this one but aren't sure either because of the look or you aren't sure if something from Ikea will be durable, trust me when I say this one will shock you in how well built it is and how comfortable it will be. I am done trying to find another chair that will equal this one.5
Not comfortable at all!Alina StarshineThe lumbar support in the back of the chair is not adjustable at all! It's at a very low position which is a bad pressure point. It makes me lean forward. The tilt on the chair is very extreme, there is no rock to it at all there is only lock in place like a beach chair would have. The seat is also narrow, and the arm rest digs into the side of my leg.1
Excellent chair for a broken backAdryHMy husband is finally be able to work without pain! Affordable, great sleek and modern design.5
Best ValueBeastmode11Spent hours researching good chairs. Previous chair was $80 and falling apart, it only lasted a year from Amazon. Herman Miller chairs are the best but I could not find a good deal. This chair seems well-built and is comfortable for $200. Plus with a 10year warranty you cannot go wrong.5
Great product for the priceIryna_ZelI bought this office chair for a home office due to Coronavirus quarantine. I bought it together with Skarsta desk and I am very satisfied with both items. Delivery service was perfect. I am a software developer, so all day long working from home I need to sit near the desk with comfort. I decided to buy this chair because the price is pretty fair and this is IKEA :-) At my office at work I have one of the expensive chairs so I can compare this Ikea chair with something. So far I am using this chair for a little bit more than 1 month for 9-12 hours a day. It was easy to assemble this office chair (but I needed just little help from my wife), it adjusts easily, it is sturdy and looks pretty stylish. It is very comfortable to sit in this chair, it supports very well may back. The seat is soft and a chair has a reclining back. the only little issue I have so far is with the armrests. They are covered with some kind of a rubber material (Polypropylene or what it is) and it is textured. So at the end of the day all the dead skin from my hands transfers on the armrests (when I think about something I unknowingly rub my hands on the surface) and the armrests look not black but grey or with some stains or scuffs. I mean the on the sunlight it is easy to see when the armrests are dirty. But wiping with a clean dry or slightly wet cloth helps to resolve this issue. My height is 5'10'', weight is about 148 lb, if this info will help someone when selection an office chair. I recommended this office chair and the desk for all my coworkers who were looking to but good quality office furniture due to this virus situation. Wish to see this chair in white or grey color, so it can match better with white or grey Skarsta desk.5
Purchased this just in time for work from homebraswesThis is a great office chair, particularly for a home office. I have previously purchased 3 other high end office or gaming chairs (all either costing the same or more than this model) and this is easily as good or better than any of them. As the work from home situation has caused me to use this chair 9 hours a day for the last 4 weeks, it has gotten a real workout. And it hasn't let me down.5
Great office chairPsephomantI picked up this chair for use when working at home. Best decision ever. This chair is now comfortable than my chair in my office cubicle! It adjusts easily, was easy to put together, and looks stylish to boot.5
mackiexhmmm ...sitable and ...slideable4
Supportive and comfyGoBlueGirlChair is supportive and comfortable. Sturdy and stylish. All things we have come to expect from Ikea. I especially like the multiple, lockable reclining positions.5
0 stars for comfort, 2 stars for aestheticsMikeB123I bought this chair to sit in while I play Xbox. I immediately started having tailbone pain that got progressively worse and worse. By the time I identified it was the chair causing the pain I was already doing physical therapy to reverse the damage. The chair looks aesthetically pleasing but I by no means recommend it as a daily sitter/office chair unless you want to add a memory foam cushion. The height is also awkward. I'm 6' and the lowest setting is just higher than I would prefer it. Good luck for anyone shorter.1
Great Aesthetics and ComfortRyanW42I bought this chair about a month and as I was in need of a replacement chair for my home work area. So far, it’s been amazing! It looks and feels great with the soft seat and reclining back. Assembly was easy enough; though, getting the seat base screwed in was a little tricky with how heavy and awkwardly shaped it was. Total assembly time was less than 10 minutes for me. One issue I’ve had so far is that the wheels don’t want to spin while the chair is empty. It’s hard to push it around, but that may just be because it hasn’t been broken in fully yet. Regardless, the chair is amazing to sit in.4
Really so Happy to getStephanyeI was having a problem with mu old chair hitting me in the wrong place, and it was killing me. Came to the store for something that didn't have a thing to do with a chair, walk pass the chair sat down the chair felt good. Well worth the price and helps my back. BUY IT5

Designed for comfort and built to last

Whether we work in an office or at home, many of us spend the majority of the day at a desk. A comfortable workspace is therefore essential for our health and well-being. Since we are all different shapes and sizes, it is important to have office furniture that can be customized to our personal needs. This brochure shows how we make your comfort our priority, and what you can do to achieve the best working environment.

Create the best workspace for you

It’s important to create the most comfortable working environment to suit you. Working for longer periods of time while sitting or standing in a bad or uncomfortable position can cause neck and back injuries as well as other serious health problems. Find out what you can do to create an ergonomic workspace, and learn about the different quality tests we carry out and the materials we use. What’s an ergonomic workspace? Ergonomics is about designing products or environments to make them safe and comfortable for people to use. An ergonomic workspace is one that is customized to your personal needs, allowing you to work in a comfortable and safe way.

Feel good and work better

We want to help you achieve an ergonomic working environment that suits you and promotes good health. This means adjusting the workspace to your needs, adopting an ergonomic position and keeping as mobile as possible. The human body is made to move, so ideally, your workspace should give you the choice of sitting, standing and leaning, allowing you to change positions often. And if you feel good at work, you will work better.

Some tips:

Choosing the right chair, desk, monitor or lamp can help create a comfortable working environment, but it cannot correct bad posture. Make sure you adopt a good posture when sitting or standing for longer periods to avoid injury. Here are some tips on how to create a comfortable workspace.


You should be able to stretch your legs under the table and turn 90° to the left and right for freedom of flexibility. The hips and knees should be at an angle of approx. 95-100° with your feet flat on the floor. HEIGHT Choose a height-adjustable chair. When standing, the highest point of the seat should be just below your knee cap. You should aim for an even distribution of weight. Raise your chair if you feel pressure near the back of your seat, but if you feel pressure near the front of your seat, you should lower your chair. This will improve the circulation of blood and reduce the risk of swelling. SEAT TILT Use the seat tilt to lock a position and to improve your comfort. It will affect the distribution of weight and can provide better stability and support when you need it. A tilt of 5° is recommended.

LUMBAR SUPPORT A chair with lumbar support will relieve the small of your back from tension caused by tiredness. The tilt of the back support should allow you to sit with your upper body slightly reclined (recommended 110°). ARMRESTS Armrests can provide support for the upper part of your forearms, and reduce the stress on your shoulders and back. Make sure that the armrests do not prevent the chair from being drawn close to the desk, nor restrict natural movements. Also keep in mind that soft armrests will be more comfortable for your elbows.


A height-adjustable desk is ideal as it will allow you to change position often. Alternating between sitting and standing will reduce the risk of injury and increase circulation, as well as productivity. The top of your work surface should be elbow height and your elbows should be at a 90° angle when sitting or standing at your desk.


A standing support enables a position between sitting and standing, and is ideal when you have a height adjustable desk. It has the following advantages: Provides freedom of movement for your upper and lower body. Activates and strengthens the core muscles of your body. Gives you an open posture which improves your circulation and metabolic rate.


Make sure your monitor is not placed too close to you. With your chair pulled in and arms stretched in front of you, you should not be able to touch the screen. The monitor should be placed directly in front of you, with the top just below eye level. Placing the monitor too high can cause neck problems. For longer periods at your monitor, make sure your arms and wrists are supported. The keyboard and mouse should be placed around 4-6" from the edge of the desk, so that the wrists are supported, but not too far that your neck and shoulders lean forwards. The monitor should be tilted at 20°-30°, which is an optimal angle for the eyes as well as the neck and shoulders.


To provide ideal lighting you should consider a combination of general lighting, mood lighting and task lighting. A desk lamp is a type of task light that provides a concentrated beam of light over a limited area. This is useful when focusing on paperwork. General lighting provides a uniform light through the whole room. Mood lighting provides a cozy feeling and softens the contrasts between general and task lighting. Place the lamp on your left side if you are right handed to reduce shadows. Computers near a window should be roughly placed at a 90° angle to the window in order to avoid glare.


We test our products for quality, safety and durability to meet international testing standards. We have very tight restrictions on chemicals, and even though certain products meet international standards they might not meet our own higher standards. In that case we will not manufacture those products. Your safety is always our top priority.

International standards

We test that our products are in line with international standards according to or set by EN and ANSI/BIFMA. In addition, IKEA has its own chemical and quality testing. EN stands for European Norm. These standards are recognized throughout Europe and they assure strength, durability and stability. ANSI/BIFMA ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, which creates and oversees norms and standards, and accredits organizations like BIFMA to formulate tests for different sectors. BIFMA, the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association, creates standards for business furniture with the highest safety standards. The professional office furniture from IKEA is tested according to BIFMA’s safety and resistance requirements.

High-quality testing

Tests are carried out in our test labs in Sweden and China in the product development phase. The test methods are the same for home and professional use, but for professional use the products are tested with heavier loads and more cycles.

How we test our office furniture

Desk and desk chairs that are intended for home use are tested to assure they are comfortable, stable, safe and durable. The series of tests we put our desk chairs through are more rigorous to meet the strict requirements on stability, strength and durability. For instance, the chairs are subjected to heavy loads up to about 300 000 times. Desks for home use are subjected to various tests including stability, strength and durability tests. The kinds of tests that are carried out depend upon the design of the desk, and which areas of the desk that are expected to be most exposed to wear and tear. Tests carried out on desks for professional use are stricter than those for home use. Desks that meet those standards will adhere to the following standards: EN 527, ANSI/BIFMA X5, which means we test their stability, durability and safety. For example, we might test the strength of a product by subjecting it to a vertical force of 100 kg for 10 seconds×10 times.

Storage Quality tests are carried out on storage furniture for safety and durability. Different parts including doors, drawers, surfaces and wheels are subjected to different tests. Storage furniture that has been tested for office use meets the following standards: EN 14073 and ANSI/BIFMA × 5.9.


We care about what goes into our products and always aim to use resources in the most efficient way possible. We choose our materials carefully while keeping prices low. Some materials work better for certain furniture depending on its use and design. For example, Melamine is often used in table tops because it has high surface resistance against scratches and marks. Melamine – a paper film with an impregnated print or pattern, which is applied under pressure to a board. The result is a durable, heat-resistant and water-repellent surface which is easy to keep clean. Veneer – thin layers of wood glued on to a board. All IKEA veneer is lacquered which makes it easy to clean, durable and protects it from moisture and scratches. Board on frame – A wooden board or fiber board with a honeycomb filling structure made of recycled paper. It is lightweight yet sturdy, and uses significantly less raw material. Bamboo – stronger and more flexible than most wood. Sustainable fast growing grass that produces twice as much oxygen than tree species.

Solid wood – a renewable, natural material that is durable and every piece is unique with its varying grain. IKEA sources all wood from closely inspected logging and carefully chosen forests. GLOSE leather – a soft yet durable dyed-through grain leather, treated with a protective coating. Easy to look after. Treat with ABSORB leather care set. Plastics - A synthetic or semi-synthetic material that can be molded and is made from oil or natural gas but also from plants. There are two categories of plastics: thermosplastics that can be heated, molded and melted, and thermoset plastics that cannot be remelted. The most commonly used in IKEA are thermoplastis such as polycarbonate and polypropylene. Wood plastic composite WPC – A mixture of wood and fiber that is molded into a form, combining the advantages of the two materials. It is strong and lighter than other plastics, making transportation costs lower and reducing environmental impact. Paint & lacquer powder coating is a process where dry powder paint is applied to a surface, often metal. It is an efficient and environmentally sustainable technique, since there’s little waste of powder and no solvents are used.
