At only $69, the Ikea Poang chair has to be one of Ikea’s most popular chairs. This chair has been around for a long time. I think that everyone at some point in his/her lifetime had this chair.

My roommate, and thus I, had this chair in college. Even back then, it was boring white. Actually, slightly off-white but not quite cream color. That, with the curved blond wood, made me say ‘nah’… to it.  To make this chair inexpensively, Ikea made this chair in just a few colors and back then there were no patterned chair covers. Boring. I was not a fan of the look of this chair.

Comfort !!

However, …. it is one of the  most comfortable chairs I ever had.  And it goes well with modern decor. 

The Ikea Poang as Baby Room / Nursing Chair

Furthermore, together with its foot rest, is perfect for a nursing room.  It’s rocking chair-like nature makes this chair ideal for holding that baby, nursing it and rocking it to sleep.

The dilemma!

If only…. we could beautify this chair! 

Drmm Drmmm…
