We bought the Poang chair for our daughter when she moved out and later returned home when her summer job ended. I can attest that this chair is very comfy indeed. Unfortunately when you are nearing senior citizen status this chair is very difficult to get out of.

Comfortable to sit in, wonderful chair to curl up with a book especially if you have the footstool, but not so good when trying to exit.

Recommend with caveats given.

The things I like best about this chair is that the cushions and/or covers can be purchased separately if one should become damaged, and that the covers on the cushions are zip-off and can be machine washed. We've had one of these for over a year and I've washed the cushion cover a couple of times with great success. We have cats and dogs that jump on on furniture and the cats occasionally barf up fur balls, so being able to wash the cushions is a godsend. Pet hair also vacuums up pretty easily or can be removed with one of these dense pet hair sponges: Gonzo PHL12D Gonzo Pet Hair Lifter. It would also be good for people with kid's because of the washable cushion covers.

The chair is amazingly comfortable. We have the footstool also, *You can buy it with the chair as a set here: Ikea Poang Chair Armchair and Footstool Set with Covers (Machine Washable))and I've fallen asleep in it a couple of times. This is probably why these chairs are so popular. I've seen them on stage sets in movies or TV shows several times. The style kind of goes with anything. They also come in a few different frame colors like light birch or black and lots of different cushion covers. There are even leather cushions for the chair (at a higher price) that you can buy from Ikea or that are sometimes sold on Amazon.

One of the most attractive features of these chairs is the reasonable price. You have to assemble them but there aren't many pieces and the instructions are seriously simple: pictures only instructions. I found them to be very specific and easy to follow, unlike some instructions these days. It took me less than 10 minutes to put it together. I think I may have used a screwdriver but the other little tool was included. Two thumbs up for a great piece of furniture that is both comfortable and great for people with pets or messy kids.

I noticed there aren't a lot of reviews for this chair on Amazon. I think this has to be one of the most popular pieces that Ikea sells.
I wanted a pair of comfy and lightweight loungers that my wife and I could sit in while watching movies in our theater room. I would have loved to buy full size recliners, but we needed a small footprint, as the room is pretty small. I was initially looking into one of those metal framed compact loungers that became popular 10 years ago. Based on the reviews and budget, these chairs fit the bill.
First Impression:
Went to Ikea. I was initially skeptical about Ikea's quality having never purchased from there before.
I was amazed at all of the cloth and color options they had. I initially wanted the leather/vinyl cushion, but found the polyester cloth cushion to be more comfortable. I also bought the matching footstools.
Took them home. Assembly was simple. I use blue locktite and woodglue on any assembled furniture that I buy, as an extra step. These chairs are very comfortable and fit the purpose to a tee. We have sat through over 25 movies in them since I purchased them in April.
Despite the recent stream of utter garbage Hollywood movies that have come out on DVD, me and my wife are just too comfortable in these chairs to bother getting up to change the DVD; often falling asleep.
These chairs are lightweight, with a simple design offering a huge variety of colors to match any decor. Most importantly they are comfortable. For the price, you really cant beat these.

I am 5'2" and have a hard time finding a chair that fits me. Usually I look like a little kid dangling my feet. This chair is perfect for me! It hits the curve of my back just right and has a little bounce to it. Love it!

I have several of these "Poäng" chairs from IKEA. They come in many varieties of wood color and covers. I may be worth changing the combinations now and then.

You may find that you start reading and wake-up wondering where you are.

They are light enough to move for parties or cleaning. The only draw-back is that the foot print especially with a footstool takes up space; so small rooms can only hold about two or three without feeling cramped.

I have had mine for years in the library and family room. They hold up well still looking svelte. I usually do not use leather with cats onboard but they had a minimum impact.

Great comfortable chair that can be fitted with a variety of colors and materials from Ikea. I will probably keep these chairs forever.

This chair fit the bill. It is very comfortable, easy to assemble and does not take up a lot of room. It replaced a rocker that was always in the way and this has enough bounce to gove a little rocking.
