Comfortable stylish chairCathyThis chair is the perfect style and so comfortable. I needed extra seating and was looking for something that had a modern flair to it. I would definitely recommend it.

VERY SAD!ScherriI am very sad about this chair. Love this chair but I bought 6 about a year ago and 2 have already cracked in the middle. I really wish IKEA would figure this out and help with this issue. I love this chair but this is so disappointing.
Great chairs!CharlynnAfter fighting with the first one, the rest of the four of these that I bought were fairly easy to put together. I love the look and the ease of cleaning these. My only concern is that they look like they may scratch easily from jean rivets. That being said, they were inexpensive and look great in my dining room.
Cute, but brokeFaithThis is one of my favorite ikea purchases and I have been in love with this chair, but it snapped down the middle and I am so sad! I want to get the same chair again, but not sure if I will since it broke so easily.. the chair is so cute so this is such a bummer!
A little heavyMartaThe chair is attractive and comfortable. The only drawback is that the base is wide which made it feel clunky. Plus, it was pretty heavy when moving it around. I had a set of four.

Nice looking but crackedJennyThe chair looks nice.
I brought 4 chair but 3 of them are cracked. I am not sure if we can replace only the plastic seat instead of a buying a new chair? Thanks.
Dangerous crack down entire middle of seatRonI bought two of these Tobias chairs in late 2020. Both have cracked unexpectedly while sitting down on them. One nearly 6 months ago and the other today. Nearly went through it to the floor and I have spinal injuries. Needless to say they don't last more than a couple of years.
UnhappyClarissaI have purchased 2 of these chairs for my makeup room and they have both split I rarely use them so disappointed and for the price never again
TOBIAS chairs CrackedSilkeI bought 6 chairs and all of them cracked. For that price I would expect a better duration time than 1.5 years approx. Chair looks good but no quality unfortunately.
Pretty until It BREAKSAlessandraI've bought a total of nine (9) of these chairs. We are not big people in my household. Originally, I bought eight chairs for my dining room. Then one chair snapped, right down the middle. We thought it was a fluke, so we threw it in the garbage, and bought a replacement. I the last month, three (3) out of the remaking 8 chairs have snapped exactly the same way. That is close to 50% failure rate. How these things are in the market is beyond comprehension. I'm out more than $500.
Another cracked chair!DebbyWish I had read all the reviews about this chair cracking before purchasing two. Mine cracked also!
Not ReliableBaileyI loved my Tobias chair. It's so sleek and takes up so little room visually and I love that about it but after less than two years my chair cracked right down the middle of the seat. I sit on it to work from home every day and one day it just split while I was working. I'm incredibly disappointed as I loved everything else about this chair but even being well under the only weight limit I could find of 110kg (I'm right around 81kg) the chair still broke. I'm so sad about it breaking and unfortunately won't be getting another one because I don't want to risk having to replace a chair in two years again. Extremely disappointing that such a visually appealing product from IKEA isn't at all reliable.
Far from sustainableLupeTobias chairs are beautiful - I've purchased six and half of them have cracked in just a couple of years. I feel terrible having to toss so much plastic. Is it possible to buy only the acrylic seat so the base can be reused? I hope Ikea has a sensible solution. Thanks for listening.
Cracked after barely a year!RodionSo disappointed. It was great until it cracked. I took a picture but there's no option to upload here.
All 6 have crackedJenniferI bought 6 of these 2 1/2 years ago and as of today they all have cracked in the seat. The first one cracked when they were just past a year old. After that, one by one, they cracked. Each time it was because someone sat down not exactly centered. Only one remained uncracked, but I just sat on it sideways (legs to the side instead of in front) and it cracked too. I have taped the crack with clear tape, and added vinyl seat cushions to cover the cracks, so they are still comfortable to sit on, but I'm disappointed.
Tobias ChairCaroleThis is my 2nd Tobias Chair.
I have had to replace as the front center of the seat has cracked. I use it as a desk chair and perhaps it is not built for daily use. Not sure whether or not I will replace it with another Tobias Chair. 5/2023
PerfectSeanThe chairs are comfortable and have a nice size seat. They look great too!
