ikea tobias lucite chair

I've been hanging out at Ikea a lot lately, again today in fact.
 Not a productive trip, as their website indicated the legs we needed for Detail Boy's
 nightstands were in stock - 121 available today - nope, not one!
I decided to wait while they checked their truck, and intentionally wandered back to the
Tobias Lucite chairs - I LOVE them!
 They're comfortable, they have some flex and a slight rocking motion,
 they look great in a small space,
they don't take up much room physically or visually,
they're kid and pet friendly,
 they slide completely under a desk (not the case with a lot of desk chairs with arms),
they can be funky, fun, whimsical, modern, classy and paired with anything, 
they're $79!

In case you need any more reasons...

Are you a fan or not so much?

yes! i am most definitely a fan! BUT for me it has to be mixed with some glam and some rustic so it is not left feeling cold.

HarlowsExclusive said...

Absolutely a fan!

I like it personally, but I had a friend once say, "I don't want people seeing what my butt looks like when it's squished and flattened!" I've never looked at these chairs the same sense. ha!

Mixed in with the rustic, I think they are fantastic. Thanks so much for the visit and following. Hugs, Marty

I like. I like.

Haley said...

I like the look of them, but once you've had them for a long time, they start getting cloudy and/or scratched up.

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

Absolutely a fan! And, at that price you cannot go wrong. What a steal!

Amy {Fresh and Fancy} said...

i'm a fan! i love them with that rustic table - or with the white desk - so pretty!

Lori said...

I think they're cool and will look great in a room with dark grey walls. My guess is that Detail Boy likes them too (and the bum issue doesn't even cross his mind!)

McKae @ Kaes Corner Design said...

I love them! I have been thinking about getting one for the desk in my office.

Ally said...

Ok, your pictures sold me even though I would have said "never" at first. Thought they were too modern for me, but they look great with the rustic table! Thanks

I thought for sure Mom would've already commented here. We have a longstanding history with Mr. Tobias. I decided (three apartments and one house ago) that I wanted to get some for my teeny tiny dining room table, so off to Ikea we went only to find one (back then they were $99 which was steep for me!). Mom literally corralled the stock boy and strong armed him into letting us take the demo model back in the aisles for pick-up on the way out of the store. Reluctantly he did and to this day, one chair has a horribel sticky mark that nothing will remove from the 'stock' sticker that was permanently glued on it. I still love them. They have held up great. My husband begs to differ - always citing his disdain for the 'invisible'.

*horrible

Holly said...

I'm going to say "sort of" - I think they are right depending on the room. I do like that you could add them to a really warm room for added texture and gloss. Any other good finds or people-watching while at IKEA?

I need those chairs for upstairs! They are so amazing! I truly heart IKEA!

I like how they look in the photos but i just don't think they will ever find a home with me! For one - I don't think my hubby would like them at all. And 2 - I just don't think they go with my house - but if I changed my mind and decide I like them and want them then of course they would go with my house well enough!! LOL! I think they would look great with your decor though

Meg {henninglove} said...

ok i seriously want to redecorate each room in my house after looking through all these images! great decorating sense of style

Happy Clients said...

As an uber-talented designer (you!) once told her client (me), I especially like them in spaces that need something that your "eyes can pass right through!"

Arvada said...

Haley and Bethany,

I'm not sure if you already are aware of this, but IKEA has a great return policy and should happily return any item you are not satisfied with.

Nat said...

Wow I love these! I've been looking for new chairs for my kitchen and these might be the ticket

Jennifer L. Griffin said...

I hadn't noticed these at Ikea before. I think they add a great modern touch to a room!
