The end product is terrificMVery comfortable and attractive after assembly, especially for this price point. However, I did have to use a power drill to fix a couple misaligned holes on one part of the frame and would not have been able to assemble the item without having the means to do this, so be forewarned.5
Simple accent chairSharonDaily easy to put together. Comfortable but if your short, buy the matching ottoman or you will get leg pain after a while5
I LOVE this chairAlexandraStylish, ergonomic chair. Great for my back. My husband and I both got one and we love them.5
What a comfortable design!SueI first ran into this chair when house shopping. Sat in it while chatting with a realtor. The looks weren't really what I liked, but it was built to be comfortable. I like the springy construction that lets me rock (or spring) when I sit. I'd really wanted the cover to be leather, but I'd have to drive 4.5 hours each way to go to a store and that's ~ for reasons I can't imagine ~ the only way I could get leather. The seat/back cushion are a single piece. The back headrest sits a little to high for me so I've worked and worked to mash it down just a bit so it'll fit a female better. Thinking about just cutting the top from the bottom and sewing it so it'll fit just right. It'd be nice if Ikea would velcro the two together so that could be adjusted. Seems almost everything is made for men ~ and I don't just mean Ikea.4
The chair and ottoman isKarenThe chair and ottoman is very comfortable.5
Great ProductAlokIt’s a great design. Comfortable and stylish. One suggestion would be that the back angle can be a bit more straight.5
Great chairDaveGreat chair5
Actually great value!AngelaThese are much more solid/stable than we expected. The value you get for the price you pay is worth it! We were looking for a chair that is still comfortable, but affordable for us as we are trying to decorate a new apartment. We like that the cushion is changeable and will be buying a few different ones to rotate.5
Great replacement cover for PoangTomGreat option for replacing our existing older Poang cover. Chair is very comfortable and a “go to” chair!5
Degraded quality over time, defects out of the box.Noah2 for 2, defective. Buyer beware. Out of the box several defects at critical points were obvious: de-lamination, chips around slots, grooves and nuts, and a fracture where a nut was inserted (at factory) into the wood at a point which carries significant load. After assembly 50lbs on seat-bed was enough to allow those defects to split the wood around the nut. If a person were to sit in this chair, it would immediately collapse on that side. I was given 2 of these chairs 25 years ago. One lasted 15 years; a replacement purchased five years ago was defective in similar ways to the one received today. The other old one is still in (heavy) use and is in better shape now at 25 years old than what is being delivered to customers as new today. This is obviously not a rare issue, and this goes beyond the general decrease in quality that has occurred over time; now we get defective product right out of the box. 2 for 2, defective. Buyer beware.1
Very uncomfortableSusanI bought two of these with matching ottomans. They are extremely uncomfortable after just a few minutes of sitting. We are all different heights and sizes in our home, but this chair isn’t good for any of us. The price and look of the chairs is great, but I guess sometimes you get what you pay for. Typically IKEA products are great value and function well. Perhaps a thicker cushion would help?1
Great chair comfortable Easy toDebraGreat chair comfortable Easy to build5
Easy build and comfyEllenThis chair was very easy to put together, about 30 minutes taking our time. Comfortable and offers a good springy bounce. Looks nice in our space and we appreciate the scale and movability.5
New go to reading chair!TeresaI love this chair! I have been shopping at ikea for years and had never given this chair a second look. My kids were being silly and sat in a couple of these chairs so I did too. I was pleasantly surprised and decided to buy one. The cushion with the bigger head pillow was not comfortable for me. I ended up buying the flatter cushion but putting a footrest cushion under the seat to give it more cushion in that area. The price is amazing for such a comfortable chair!5
ExcellentArianisVery comfortable!5
Big and comfortable chairAugustI was skeptical at first if this chair is sturdy enough to hold my weight. I'm 210 lbs. and 6ft tall. It fits me well very comfortable and sturdy. I hope it will last a couple years but so far so good! Bought 2!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 layer-glued wood?

With layer-glued wood it’s possible to create flexible and extra strong constructions with curved shapes, like frames for armchairs. The secret is a technique where many layers of thin wood veneer are glued together and then pressed into the desired shape. We often use wood like birch, beech, ash and even bamboo – and strive to use the raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste. Just like solid wood, it has natural variations in structure and colour.
