The Best Under-$50 Living Room Buys You Can Find at IKEA
Looking for a little spring refresh, but don’t feel like spending a ton of money? We feel you. While we generally turn to IKEA to supply us with stylish basics (BILLY bookcases, anyone?), it’s a great source of inspiration as well. Below, we found 10 great items—all clocking in at under $50—to breathe new life into our living rooms this season.
1. TJENA Storage Box with Lid, $1.99
Place one (or several) of these graphic storage boxes around your living room for organization that’s too chic to stay hidden. You can even line them up on your bookshelf to act as decor when not in use.
2. BRUNSTA/HEMMA Pendant Lamp, $29.99
This industrial-chic pendant lamp would look great hanging over a dining table in a corner nook, or even in your foyer or hallway for a sleek look upon entry.
3. MAJALOTTA Cushion Cover, $5.99
Bring a modern artwork feel into your living room with this bold navy and orange pillow cover. The abstract design will instantly amp up any neutral decor.
4. MAJGULL Blackout Curtains, $34.99
Consider adding these blackout curtains to your living room windows to help keep out the impending summer heat. The fact that they do double duty is an added bonus since the of-the-moment mauve shade will bring a touch of modernity to your space.
5. SOMMAR Rug, $29.99
We love the pop of color this striped Kelly green rug brings to a space. The 5 x 7 size is perfect for tucking under an armchair or anchoring a smaller seating area together.
6. SNAJDARE Clock, $19.99
Turn time-telling into an art form with this cool statement clock. Added bonus: Since it features quartz movement, you won’t hear any bothersome ticking.
7. ANTIFONI Floor/Reading Lamp, $39.99
This polished nickel-plated floor lamp would complete a reading area handsomely since the light can be dimmed. It would also look right at home overlooking the end of your sofa, thanks to the adjustable lamp arm and head.
8. GLATTIS Coasters With Holder, $7.99
Elevate your next glass of water with this pretty, yet functional, set of brass coasters. The minimalist set can be left out when not in use for a shiny complement to your coffee or end table.
9. JOHANNE Throw, $19.99
Add a graphic element to your space with this black-and-white patterned throw. It’s not too bulky, which makes it perfect for springtime. Drape it across the arm of your sofa for a cute design statement.
10. UPSPRUNGLIG Floor Cushion, $19.99
Why let your sofa have all the fun? Guests can make themselves at home on this fun striped floor pillow when you invite them over for cocktails or a marathon binge-watching session.
