Great valueJanetA good product for its value. Assembly directions were easy to follow.4
Almost 5 starsCynthiaThis chair is great. It's light weight, the color is beautiful, and it's a great price! The only downfall is the tested weight limit. Here in the US we are fluffy and although I'm under the weight limit most of my friends and family are not. This is a concern. How do you tell your guest that your chairs might not hold them? Thank you Ikea for creating such a beautiful piece of furniture but can you maybe look into the weight limit? All of your chairs are the same in this way.4
Very light. Good lookbrandon h.For real wood, the chairs are a lot light than I expected. The parts of the wood you don't see are not stained which isn't a big deal. Good for temporary chairs, but not life long.4
durable but wonder weight limitsKirk w.We have had them for a number of years and they have held up well. We added seat cushons to make them more comfortable.
The only concern we have is that we do not know what their weight limits are. We have friends who come over who weigh quite bit. Will they safely hold up for people who are 250 lbs? 275 lbs? More?5
good priceAngelagood price5
Simple but sturdyDonnaEasy to put together but make sure you have a table to set them on to finish the build. Nice color. Would advise to consider getting seat cushions.5
very bad qualitykonexueThe quality is very bad. The wood on the back is cracked when touched, and when you buy a new one, you have to use iron nails to fix it. It would be too dangerous for a child to sit on it.1
ClassicDANATwelve years ago, I started out with 2 of these chairs. They've been with me through endless dinner parties, lent to a friend for several years, made it back in my possession & were paired with my new dining room table when I bought a house. I've since added 2 more chairs & am just as happy with them as my originals. If you're looking for classic chairs that you'll be able to buy more of as your needs change, Stefan won't disappoint.5
Mat he's the set weDONNAMat he's the set we have had for years.5
Great for the price, need upkeep over timeTaylor D.I bought four of these chairs nearly two years ago and they have served out little dining room well. They were very easy to assemble and they look good with the rest of our furniture. However, over time I have had to fix them. The sections that you assemble are holding together fine with the screws, but the pre-assembled sides are where I have problems. The side supports on the legs and under the seat like to come apart and I have to glue them back together. I've glued three of my four chairs at this point and I'm sure I'll have to do it again. Overall I like them and I really like how light weight they are, but they will probably need some fixing if you use them with regularity.4
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 solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favorite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
