Looks more expensive than it is!ANNETTELove this chair! I’ve had mine for years. They are very durable and give a modern look to your decor.5
surprised & disappointed!Leah F.we love all our IKEA products & we love the 8 chairs that we bought for our kitchen. however, with just regular use, they all have a crack down the center! (as we now see other customers have experienced as well!) we were hoping that IKEA would stand behind their products & offer us some sort of refund...perhaps we could just get new seats! looking forward to hearing from you soon!1

Loyal Ikea customer DisappointedVALORIE D.I am compelled to bring to your attention four chairs that I purchased less than three years ago that has not reflected the reliability that I am use to as a loyal Ikea customer of over 25 years. I purchased four Tobias (acrylic) dining chairs and table to complete a remodeled kitchen. The design fit perfectly into my motif however two of the four chairs purchased have cracked down the middle of the seat. Upon researching the reviews of said item I discovered that others have experienced the same design flaw. What recourse do you suggest?1
Tobias chairCharoenchaiLove this chair. We bought 5 of them. They lasted a long time.5
I love itGRACIELAI love it5
Barely used, cracked down the middleSkye K.Got these a while ago and barely used them, never had an issue besides some weird noises when sat down in them. Just now I sat on it (160 lbs) and it cracked right down the middle. Thankfully I had pants on and it snagged them and not my skin. I love the style of these chairs and am so disappointed. Always a good reminder to look at the 1 star reviews even with a high rated item. I never have bad experiences with Ikea so this is also a little shocking.1
Pricey but goodJosephChairs are a bit pricey for plastic and tubular chrome but, extremely functional and comfortable.5
It’s nice product.KEBEDEIt’s nice product.5
Goes with everythingDeniseClear chairs are the way5
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.4

Cool & Comfy!MaryThese chairs were listed in an article about the most comfortable dining chairs. They are VERY comfortable! And, they are VERY attractive with our black, Ingatorp table! It's a perfect combination.5
Great chair!KimberlyI’ve had the clear chair for years. Weirdly enough the chair is really comfortable even though it’s plastic. My 16 year old daughter put 5 of them together alone.5
Fantastic!TomComfortable AND attractive!5
Love these chairs!MeganWe have been needing new chairs for a while and everytime I come to IKEA i sit in these chairs. I finally broke down and got 4 of them for our dining room. Best chairs ever. They look nice and they are very comfortable for me and all of my friends of all sizes.5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastics

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastics

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
