My husband Ted and I bought our first Poäng chair at least 25 years ago, and a few weeks ago we bought this one, which I believe is at least the fifth Poäng we've owned. (Our decor changed over the years, but the chairs would have lasted forever, except for the two we left on the porch at the log house through several brutally snowy winters.) In 1976, Japanese designer Noboru Nakamura collaborated with IKEA's product manager, Lars Engman, on the beechwood-frame chair that initially was named "Poem," and to date, IKEA has sold more than 30 million Poäng chairs in various colors and fabrics. The chair comes flat-packed, and it's easy to assemble with the included Allen wrench. Poäng is an insanely comfortable chair at a very affordable price, and if you don't live near an IKEA, you can now buy the chair and matching footstool online.
