The Patrik was designed for IKEA by Mia Gammelgaard, and it may be on it's way to becoming another IKEA classic (BTW We always wondered where the first Patrick was. Now we know.)
After posting our own question in November, which asked readers to recommend a good second task chair for our office, we looked through all the answers and chose this one, recommended by Ed. With bold good looks, an adjustable seat, a solid caster system, nubby bright fabric and a price tag of only $149, the Patrik is a stand out from IKEA's other cushioned task chairs and is hard for any other store to beat.
Problems? The casters are a little slow to turn (there don't move super freely) and the seat, while soft, could have used a little more foam. Great for shorter sits, we would probably add a cushion for long sits. But then that's why it's a secondary chair. (Thanks, Ed!)
