:: Ikea Furniture Makeover :: If you are the lucky owner of an Ikea Poang chair than today’s article is for you: it’s a free sewing pattern for an Ikea Poang chair slipcover.
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.
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.
If only…. we could beautify this chair!
Now we can! Here’s a pattern to cover the chair with a pretty fabric, which totally transforms the look!
