Elizabeth is looking for some feedback on an IKEA chair. She writes: Are the IKEA Martin chairs any good? Are there other, similar, sturdy kitchen chairs? We have a lovely Room & Board butcher block kitchen table with coordinating chairs, but they are very straight and hence very easily tipped. With a very active 2.5 year old and baby on the way, we're concerned about chairs and their occupants spilling onto the floor....

Putting a booster seat on one would just be out of the question. We'd like to find a cheap solution for some sturdier (wider-legged) chairs that will get us through the next several years.

I'd love to hear anyone's experiences with the IKEA Martin chair (only 29.99 each) before I drive an hour to get there...

Have any info to share with Elizabeth? Let her know in the comments below...thanks!
