In this article, I will provide detailed information on four different types of IKEA chairs with footstools. I will be providing information on Ikea Poang Chair, Ektorp Armchair, STRANDMON Armchair, and OMTÄNKSAM.

Happy reading!


IKEA Poang Chair is one of the most comfortable armchairs you will find in the market. You will get lots of benefits from using Poang Chairs during your leisure period. Having said that, they will also change the overall room’s atmosphere.

It will add a classy and sophisticated look to your dining area. Let me tell you, the soft and minimal padding not only makes the Poang chair comfortable to sit in but also maintains the required airflow to keep the seat breathable. 

The curved backrest and the spacious seat ensure that you are sitting in your optimum posture. The neck pillow works like a charm when it comes to supporting your upper body at the time you lean back.

I have written a whole article explaining how to make IKEA POANG chair more comfortable. You can check it out by clicking here.

Many recommend IKEA Poang chairs in office lounges, dorms, nurseries, or hospitals for the maximum comfort. Along with the soft, durable, and presence of various cushion collections, you will get removable covers that you can change as per your mood. 

Although you can buy a Poang armchair without the footstool, I highly recommend buying the ottoman. It will do nothing but increase the comfort level up to infinity. You will thank me later, trust me.

As a side note, I have compared IKEA POANG chair with IKEA PELLO in terms or comfort, ergonomics and pricing. To know which one is an overall better choice, read this article: IKEA PELLO Vs. POÄNG: What’s The Difference?

Footstool – IKEA Poang Armchair

The footstools that go with IKEA Poang chairs have the perfect cushioning that adequately supports and comforts your legs. You can watch TV or read a book for hours while sitting on a Poang chair and resting your legs on the footstool.

The footstool or the Ottoman also helps you to maintain your posture, as, without it, you might slouch forward, and resting your back on the backrest can be troublesome. 

But when the footstool is present, and you keep your legs rested on it, you will notice you are sitting more comfortably and experience less or no pain afterward. 

The Poang footstool can be found in various designs, shapes, and colors, which make the Poang ottomans more special.

Unlike other armchairs, Ektorp Armchair’s comfort level will stay the same. It will never lose its shape and coziness. You can have the best nap utilizing the extra depth and find your favorite spot like mine.
