Product details

You can sit comfortably for a long time at the table since the angle of the backrest provides good lumbar support.

The weaved and flexible textile rope seat gives the chair an expression that goes just as well outdoors as indoors.

You can have several chairs on hand without taking up more space since they are stackable.

TEGELÖN outdoor dining chair is durable and easy to care for, also when placed outdoors since it’s made of a powder-coated steel frame and its seat is made of rope.

Reviews

Just Perfect!DruI’d been watching these chairs for months and finally got to the store to see them in person. We thought they might be too big for our table so decided to wait them on the way out we looked in the As Is dept and there were SIX chairs! We couldn’t resist! They are perfect and we look forward to many family gatherings seated on these chairs.5
Great Sturdy AND Comfy ChairDaleJust about says it all. I'm tall and generously sized and this chair fits to a T. Don't need to worry if this chair will hold up, it does! Worth every penny and I expect this chair to last many years!5
As pretty as uncomfortableAldoThis is probably the most uncomfortable chair I have ever owned. I'd strongly recommend you try it in the store before buying it.1
Comfortable and substantialBonnieDidn’t see these in the store before purchasing so I was nervous about what I’d be getting. These do not disappoint! They are hefty, substantial chairs while still being lightweight enough to move around and stack easily. Put six of them together in less than an hour so bonus points for being easy assembly, too. Not sure how they’ll hold up in the Texas heat but so far, so good!5
What about the color fading of the weave, when kept in sun (outdoors) for long duration.ParulDoes the chair color fades away when kept in sun.3
Great multipurpose chairJoshHaving just moved into a new apartment, I was looking for a chair to match the Skogsta table, as well as chairs for my desk, and for my balcony. To my surprise, this chair was a perfect match for all three. It's sleek, mature, and surprisingly comfortable. I bought 4 of them, and we enjoy moving them from table to desk to balcony.5
Doesn’t Work for Me But Probably Great for OthersBethNice, substantial chair, but at 5’ 3” if I sit all the way back I can’t rest my feet on the floor, and moving forward presses the curved bar at the front of the seat into my thighs, which is uncomfortable. Unfortunately will be returning them. (My legs are pretty short; other 5’3”ers could be comfortable.)3

A more comfortable outdoor life

At IKEA, we think outdoor furniture should be as comfortable as it is durable. That’s why we used both traditional and modern techniques when we created TEGELÖN. The result was a garden chair that is as soft and inviting as an indoor chair. Perfect if you want to move long dinners parties to the balcony or your green oasis.

There are obvious advantages with materials like plastic, wood, and metal in outdoor furniture, but without soft cushions, they are not that pleasant to sit in for a longer time. So, how do you create furniture for balconies and terraces that is as comfortable as the padded furniture we have indoors? Engineer Phuong Thanh Nguyen and the rest of the team behind TEGELÖN found a solution by combining an old handicraft technique with a modern material.

A support for long sittings

TEGELÖN has a seat and back of woven rope. It’s a proven technique used for thousands of years, but often together with rattan or other natural fiber – materials that don’t age particularly well in rain and sunlight. Instead, the team decided to use a rope with a rubber-like core. “It can withstand weather and meets today’s demand on durability and comfort. It’s both maintenance-free and gives good flexibility and support to all body types,” explains Phuong.

No borders between inside and outside

Phuong and the development team tried different ways to braid the rope and realized that it’s most comfortable without any openings in the weave. “We’re also using oval instead of round rope. It’s small details that together make a big difference when you sit down,” he says. “It makes TEGELÖN a chair that can match your indoor furniture in both comfort and style – and the boundary between the inside and the outside becomes a little less obvious.”

Designer thoughts

“Today we socialize around the dining table more than ever, and to enjoy these moments with good food and interesting conversations, a chair is needed that’s comfy to sit on. My idea with TEGELÖN was to create such a chair for outdoor use. Instead of armrests, I chose to make the seat and back wider. The shape feels elegant and inviting while you sit softly and comfortably thanks to the handwoven ropes. I hope the chair sees you enjoy many long hours with loved ones."
