I have the Markus and really enjoy it. I had wait for stock at the store and rush there to get one before they sold out.

I believe the JÄRVFJÄLLET is the newer version. I had read about the differences when looking at the Markus, but couldn't justify the extra money, but it wasn't on sale at that time. Here is a Reddit thread I found discussing some differences:

+1 for the Markus. I've had mine for a few years. The mesh back is great, especially if you don't normally have a cooled room in the summer. I'm on my desk a lot and this chair is really comfortable, its held up really well too, no issues over the past 2-3 years. I am 6' 180lb and my head rests comfortably on the padding. Mind you I have the leather version of the chair, I can't speak on behalf of the fabric ones.

The Markus is better than this chair- I bought it right before COVID started and the cushion is way too hard- would not recommend it unless you like sitting on a rock.

The arms are also terrible - but maybe the fabric one is better?

Eitherway, I'm returning mine after upgrading to a Leap haha

I have this chair, and found it more comfortable than the Markus because of the stiff wider seat for sitting cross-legged and adjustable headrest (Although the headrest could use more adjustability/be removable all together). Obviously best if you can sit in both to try for yourself.

What sucks about both is the armrest it comes with are awful (But I am fine with not using any).

It’s a shame that it’s seemingly out of stock everywhere.

Does anyone know if you place an order for in store pickup do you have to wait in line or do they bring it out to you?

I'm in the market for a new office chair but I have hardwood floors that I don't want to damage with wheels, I understand IKEA chairs have different sized castors but I wanted to get gliders for whatever chair I get. Does anyone have any suggestions for an IKEA chair?

To get in? Not bad.

To return or exchange something? Hell on Earth.

Tried both and Markus seems a bit better. But both have pros/cons.

Jarv: better backrest (wraps around body), adjustable lumbar/headrest.
Markus: better seat, cheaper

Armrest sucks on both, Jarv is hard plastic. Markus feels like a basketball, but it's still not padded/soft.

They need to make a new version with the seat of Markus, backrest of Jarv and padded armrest.

I have the fabric version.

I personally prefer a softer seat as I have a flat bottom. Also the back leans back a more than I like - the shoulders end up a few inches behind the butt if I sit straight.

Now looking to upgrade 9 months in. On a good note, it did slow down my piriformis syndrome and sciatic nerve compression

for this chair is it really worth it vs some $200 executive bonded leather chairs? i.e https://www.staples.ca/products/2263720 ... hair-brown
Everything I've ever read seems to indicate the bonded leather never lasts and cracks over time.

I have the material version of the Markus.

I also like the arms, but I guess I'm not used to padded arms.
