Great chair! Bought the second oneEvgeniia P.Despite its simplistic look and the cheapest price - it is incredibly comfortable. I'm working from home and use it constantly when I'm not standing. The good point - the height can be pretty much adjusted, and you can sit comfortably at any table. I bought already a second one - the second is even better :)5

AwesomejatannaAt first I thought this desk chair was going to be so uncomfortable. But, Ikea did it again. I Absolutely Love This Chair. It's different and Goes well with my table...5
Great chair for Grandchild!KARINPerfect fit for toddler that loves to sit and read or sit to eat in 'my chair.' Chair is adjustable so we're looking at a few more years of use.5
Good kiddo chairCassandraPerfect for 5 to 6 year olds5
Was not as we hadSachiWas not as we had seen1
Cute Chair Not ComfortabletiaraLove the look of the chair but the feel not so much. I got a seat cover so it wouldn’t feel so hard and it hasn’t helped much. I do my school work at my desk but this chair makes me have to move much more than I would like.1
Great chair for kids.JayantGreat chair for kids.5
Great valueElizzysolI bought this for my micke desk which i use as a vanity. It fits tucked away under the desk very nicely. Has good bum space i just wish it would swivel.3
This is not a chairFRGIIThis thing is not a chair. It looks ridiculous next to any normal sized desk. It's cold and hard. Definitely not for sitting any longer than 5 minutes. It does not swivel despite it looking like a swivel chair. It has no wheels, just some hard plastic on feet. The height adjust requires you to get off chair, get on the ground, remove a clip and pin, then try to get the 2 holes to line up and reinsert the clip with pin. The color is no where close to the picture. It's a pale anemic looking gray. Like a faded battleship. This really should be in the children's section or just removed completely. You are better off getting a cheap stool.1
Perfect for small bedrooms or spaces.WellaWallyVery pleased with it. Small, yet strong.5
Great small profile chairallycatSuper easy to assemble. The back support is great.5
Comfortablegjones5322I would suggest putting a small rod to hold the base on the chair when you lift it. It falls off.4
Great Desk chairNadjaWWe've had the Molte Desk chair for 7 months now and we have not experienced any of the issues listed in other reviews. In fact, after reading about the seat coming off problem, I check our chair to see if we have the same issue and we don't. The chair works perfectly in our application and as far as the size of the seat complaints, I am just going to say my husband and I use the seat too and he is 6'2 220 lbs. All four of us highly recommend this chair.5
Great chairShlandaGreat price, and you can lean back in the chair. My 13 yo loves them.5
Great for the pricejustinmb711This desk chair is a great value for what its worth. Is it the most comfortable chair ever? No. Is it good as a stool for my studio? Definitely. Its comfortable enough to sit in for a while a get some work done. And for the money you get a solid constructed chair that looks pretty darn cool. The leg of the chair is steel as well as the feet. The plastic seat is form fitting to most body styles and can flex to a pretty strong degree. The chair is sturdy enough to hold my 250 lb frame without feeling like its going to give out. Solid desk chair especially for the money!4
Not PracticalTanandEven for a kid it's way too small1
Good, affordable with one flawmduckI bought 2 of these a year ago for my 2 children to use at their desks. The price was right! They are actually pretty comfy even for me to sit in. There is only one flaw. When you pick the chair up, the seat part is not attached to the chair so the base will at times disconnect from the seat and drop to the floor when you are trying to move the chair. I did go ahead and buy another one for my 3rd child This last time.3
Great for an adult, tooMargeaux06I bought this for myself: an older adult, specifically 5'5. The chairs I had been using provided poor lumbar support. This one is great for lumbar support, and I like its comfortable seating. I sit in it at my desk for long periods of time, and I highly recommend it. I love the cheerful yellow.5
OK desk chair...TygrmomThe MOLTE desk chair is an OK size for my six year old, no cushion so not for long use and no wheels so no mobility. It's functional and good enough for the short term.2

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastics

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastics

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

"When I designed MOLTE, I was inspired by soft, organic shapes and wanted to use that to create a comfortable desk chair with a lot of character. I’m proud that we managed to maximize both comfort and style, while using a minimum amount of material. That reduces the impact on the environment. I hope people feel happy when they see the chair – and even happier when they use it!"
