I purchased several of these PS Vågö chairs in black (together with the footstool) back in 2002 when they were first introduced.  Made from molded plastic which is designed to be colour-resistant, I have always loved the juxtaposition of the sleek, modern lines of the chair against the unruliness of nature (though the chair may also be used indoors).  After a few years I noticed they were no longer available, and apparently production was stopped, but I would still see the chair from time to time in various design publications.  I still have the black versions after all this time, but I am happy to report that as of this year, IKEA is once again producing the PS Vågö for sale minus the footstool and, in addition to black and white, this new lime green colour has been added.

The design has won a Red Dot Design award. It's inexpensive and stackable a good example of how form and function can come together to create something beautiful but accessible to all.
