I love this chair. I tried it and it is comfortable a very modern and very easy to keep clean… at least it looks like it.

You don’t get more minimalist than a clear chair and chrome.

I’ve just assembled these for my kitchen and want to share a trick: if you’re having trouble getting that last bolt to line up so you can screw it in, it’s because they actually need to be done in order. Screw in the two in front first, and the back two last. You may need to sit in the chair while screwing in the 4th bolt. I hope this saves someone a couple of hours of their time!

I can’t find any store (in the US) on the website that has these in stock. Any one know if I can still buy these?

Cindy, I also have been looking for the tobias chair in the US and it’s been out of stock for over a month. I e mailed ikea and they said that they don’t know when it’s going to come back into stores. I’m still waiting for them, so I hope they come back soon!

Ikea did say that they will be back, so it’s just a matter of waiting!

I actually called Ikea and although they were not expecting any shipments to my nearest Ikea store, and said that they would NOT be in the next catalog, I was able to order them by phone (but not online). There was a delivery fee, of course, but I’m just happy to have them! They arrived within just a few days and I LOVE THEM!! So try calling Ikea..

It’s showing up on the website again. But not online. And I can’t find it in stock at any stores around me (2 hours and 3 hours away). Yikes.

I just got a couple of clears from the Stoughton store. They also have black. $99, per the 2009 catalog. Fantastically comfy for an unupholstered chair. It’s nice and wide, which is good because I am. Just springy enough. Feels substantial, unlike a lot of Ikea stuff that looks like it was designed to last for a year in a dorm and then be tossed out. I hope this is a hit for Ikea and they come out with a bunch of colors.

Hi, can anyone tell me if this chair is available anywhere around the world?? it’s been out of stock for the longest time in Singapore and attempts to locate 1 in Ikea outlets overseas have been futile! :(

I have 4 of these. Actually regret getting them. They may look sharp and deceptively easy to keep clean, but from experience only plastic polish and a special type of cloth will keep them looking pristine. Any other material, including soft cloth, sponges, paper towels etc, will leave minute scratches that grow more evident after every wipe.

Have 4 black tobias chairs and so regret not buying six as can’t find the black ones anywhere in the world now. If anyone wants to get rid of two black tobias chairs I am keen as to buy.

I bought 3 chairs. They were good to use for about 2 years. 2 chairs cracked last month. I couldn’t believe, my wife sit on the chair and it cracked :( Her weight is 48kg…
