Love my rockerRobertGreat instructions very easy to put together. Comfortable chair glad we purchased it!5
Better than StresslessMatthewI bought this to replace my norweigan Stressless chair and it’s beyond better. I don’t care for the normal poang, it’s gonna snap, lol (I know, the robot thing that pushes on it says it won’t). Will be buying a second for home.5
It doesn't rock at allJenniferI was excited and expected a decent rocking chair for the price of over $250. But It BARELY rocks. I'm so sad by this purchase. I feel like SOMETHING has to be wrong or defective with the amount it doesn't move. But no, it's just how it is. If you want a decent rocking chair this is not the one. I just can't describe the disappointment when I sat down 9 months pregnant with the image of rocking my baby and then a borderline painful, jarring rocking experience ensued. Don't buy this. You will be dissatisfied. I am 5'3”1
Gift for MomChristinaShe absolutely loves this chair! As someone who is petite it's hard for to gind comfortable seating where she can actually relax.5
I liked that it wasKwonI liked that it was very comfortable. However, if the seating area were more comfortable, it would feel much more comfortable.5
Comfortable and affordable rocking chairSusanComfortable and affordable rocking chair, the Poang is well designed, looks great in the living room and is reasonably easy to put together.5
The Poang never disappoints!LisaThis is our 3rd and we love them all.5
Very comfortableMarkBeing over six foot in height I finally found a comfortable rocking chair5
This is a simple, elegantYianThis is a simple, elegant rocking chair that is fairly comfortable. However, if the top corners of the armrests were a little rounded, it would make the chair more comfortable. Also, the chair is light. On a smooth floor, it tends to slide back a few inches when I sit down, unless I'm consciously gently.4
not rockin' enoughChrisit's fine but it doesn't really rock much at all. I would just go with the regular poang chair and save some money. this is sort of designed to not rock like if you made a car without wheels so you wouldn't get into an accident. otherwise it's fine. I returned it because of this. I fee like the regular POANG chair has almost as much movement as the rocker version. Why pay more? Note: I have carpet. Maybe it's more rockin' on a hard floor. Also if you wear ankle weights or iron boots regularly this might work better for you.3
Poäng Rocking ChairKelliIt is a very comfortable rocker and fits in well with my decor. My only negatives are: • It's a little low and somewhat difficult to get out of (I'm tall) •The rocking motion has been greatly reduced by a design change in the front. It barely qualifies as a rocking chair at this point 🫤 If I had known, I would have opted for the regular chair and saved a little $$4

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.
