soft fabricJeanfabric is soft after laundering. However, it is a bit wrinkly. That's ok - my eyes are closed when sleeping!4
Decent. Take care in assembly.AndreaChair is sturdy, looks good, but be VERY CAREFUL when assembling: the wood is delicate. We used an electric drill which may have been a mistake ... back rest and seat split. IKEA is wonderful in handling returns/exchanges, so we did take one back to store, kept the one that wasn't damaged in assembly.4
nice, sturdy chairANDREAReally like this chair. a great deal for the price. Added cushions for extra comfort. Looks really nice with our table5
Tricky to AssembleMaria I.You must be very careful assembling this chair, especially the top piece on the back of the chair. It seems the screw designated to do the job is just a 1/2 inch longer than it needs to be and if you are not carefully it will come out through the wood on the other end. The same with the seat; be gentle. Will not purchase this chair again.3
Poor constructionHalliClassy looking but the drilled areas for notches didn’t match, holes for screws were insufficient, one of the chairs had a chunk missing outside and was damaged.2
Great chairCHRISTINAWe bought these to pair with our new table and so far they're great! I wish the hardware was hidden, but it's not a deal breaker. Overall, a nice sturdy chair at a great price.5
Great chairLynneVery sturdy chair. Matches the table we purchased perfectly. Since it’s wood, we purchased seat cushions for the chairs.5
chairsceciliafor the price they are great. They are just a little light weight for me, thus the 4 stars, but they work perfectly and were very easy to assemble. I would recommend them and buy them again for a temporary fix.4

Comfortable chairBARRYComfortable chair. A little small, but definitely a nice fit. Easy to put together and looks really nice. Wish it had a cross bar at the bottom for stabilizing in case someone larger were to sit on it. Definitely like it.5
good chairs for the priceJohnIt took me awhile to decide which chair in ikea lineup to buy. I like it that back support is high enough to feel conformable. While some of the collection in ikea, the back support is so low it feels like a kids chair. Overall it's a solid chair, I like them and easy to clean.5

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 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.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

“When I designed the NORDVIKEN series, I wanted to make dining furniture that adapts to many different activities, collective and individual, through the day. I came up with versatile and extendable tables and a comfy chair, simple in character with details that connect to traditional craftsmanship. The wooden construction is durable and sustainable, made to age in a nice way, so the furniture will always have a place and purpose that follows the changing needs through life.”

Designer Francis Cayouette
