I know I’m not the only one who’s going to be in love with this chair. Both the swivel function and the color! (I also know I’m not the only one who always hears it with a ‘twang!’ and an exclamation point at the end, but that’s another matter…). Previously only available as an armchair, the PÖANG rocking chair joined the lineup for 2010 and was in the catalog, but this new PÖANG Swivel Chair and PÖANG Lounger are NEW! More pics and new POANG options after the jump…

NEW PÖANG Chairs for 2010

IKEA PÖANG Rocking Chair

The new IKEA PÖANG Rocking Chair quietly joined the lineup in the 2010 IKEA Catalog. But really, even it if it was noisy who would have known with all the carrying-on about the new font? This one below is covered in a new fabric called KARLSRO Multicolor. Acorns and leaves. Cute.

Starting at $149 USD for a PÖANG Rocking Chair in DALA Natural and ranging to $179-$199 USD for most patterns and other solid color fabrics, the POANG remains a solid choice. With a 10 year warranty, you can count on the quality or get your money back! Even the highest priced covers ($249 USD for ROBUST leather in either off-white or dark brown and $299 USD for sheepskin in LOCKARP White or LOCKARP Grey) bring the total in at less than $300. Looks like you can use a standard PÖANG chair cover for the rocker too, so bonus!

What do you think of the rocking chair? Would it make a decent nursery rocker?

So shoot me. I used the same picture again. Can’t help myself – I might have to redecorate my office to accomodate this chair! In KORNDAL BLUE, this new PÖANG Swivel Chair might be my next office chair of choice! Anyone have an opinion on the ’sittiness’ of the chair for working at a desk, mainly on a computer/keyboard all day? Would love to hear from you… The swivel version of the PÖANG chair runs $219 USD in KORNDAL Blue as shown:

IKEA PÖANG Lounger Chair

Lounge much? You’re in luck! You’ll have to buy new covers for this one, though – the cover is fundamentally different to accomodate the footstool portion of the lounger. But who cares? Put your feet up and forget about it! As shown, in Birch and KORNDAL Green – $229 USD.

    Have had Poang chairs for over 30 years; just love them…Have to find a space to put these new models. What a great addition to this series.

  2. Imanta says:

    I love them too, but the color options are now lacking a bit… they need to introduce a flat white leather (a la Barcelona white) to improve the modern feel. The off-white is really unappealing. The Boliden brown fabric is also spectacular and that chair could be a solid competitor if it was more mix and match.

  3. Zane says:

    When will the swivel chair be in stores?

  4. Susan says:

    That I do not know. I looked for it at my store – IKEA Woodbridge on Friday and didn’t see it.

  5. Zane says:

    It isn’t in Charlotte yet either. THanks for the report, however! It will be worth waiting for as the Smedsta swivel would not work for me. The seat seems too low, and the cover not removable for care.

  6. ZaneC says:

    Still waiting on the swivel…any signs of it yet?

  7. Susan says:

    Not as yet! I wish I had a date for this, but I’ll see what I can find out.

  8. Trisha says:

    does anybody know whether the swivel also rocks? at least as much as the standard Poang?
