Stokke chairs are great from the standpoint of flexibility and comfort for the children.
But ... Stokke made a big business out of selling their product in very many colors and it's nice at first glance. I bought two green, SLO, nice chairs for a little less than two years ago. And now begins the varnish crack. It does not look good, and the damage will only get worse over time.
After contact with Stokke, I have been told that they do not cover such damage in his seven years long warranty. What then with a guarantee?
The secondary market for Stokke chairs will dip my guess is many / all lacquered chairs will crack in the paint. Sad because a major benefit of Stokke is that they kept so good, but now you can rather see one of those purchases that consumption purchases rather than investment.
WARNING to buy a lacquered Stokke chair. Buy so, a natural colored chair, they are much better over time.
Stokke has changed lacquer in production as older chairs are better (but well as other chemical concerns ...).
