Five Star Dining Chair

Ikea Saga Chair October 13 Stacey Smithers

I often work on our monthly food stories, so I am constantly on the lookout for great new dining room chairs to feature. My latest find, tacked up on my inspiration board as a strong contender for January 2010’s food story, is the new Såga chair ($89) from the Ikea PS Collection. I love its simple design and classic lines, and I especially love that it comes it grey. Here is what the designer Nike Karlsson said about this chair’s design:

“I wanted to make a well-crafted chair where fittings are part of the idea. Like a sawhorse! All its fittings are visible and the construction is logical and easy to grasp. The result is a solid beech chair with a distinct and personal expression, which I believe coordinates with many different styles.”

Available at four Ikea stores only:
