The days are cooler, the nights are darker, and you’ve swapped your iced coffee habit for soul-warming lattes. You know what that means: It’s cozy season. Just like your wardrobe gets a mini-makeover when the winter months hit (hello, cable knit sweaters and cashmere scarves!), so can your home. 

Luckily, IKEA has come through with a slew of cozy essentials—new and old—to help you warm up your home without breaking the bank. With everything from luxe, textured accessories to the perfect ambient lighting, you can stock up on must-haves that will make your nest a place you’ll long to be all winter long. Which is a good thing, because you might not be leaving much.

1. RENS Sheepskin

What better item to kick off this roundup with than the Swedish retailer’s iconic sheepskin? Beloved by professional designers and IKEA diehards alike, the RENS sheepskin’s a classic for a reason. Not only is it super cozy, but it’s also super versatile. You can throw it over the arm of your sofa to give it a whole new winterized look, toss it atop an existing rug for a bit more plushness underfoot, or add it to the foot of your bed as an incentive to never leave on Sundays. Plus, at just $30, you can basically buy one for every room in your home.

2. SANELA Room Darkening Curtains

Embrace the shorter, darker days with a bit of extra moodiness, thanks to these luxe curtains. Made to mimic rich velvet and lined to block out basically any light, they’re a great way to intentionally dim your space so you can then fill it with lots of flickering candles and ambient lighting. Bonus: With seasonal shades like emerald green and deep burgundy, these drapes are an easy way to add some wintry drama to your room’s color palette.

3. STRALA Lantern

Is it just me or do lanterns instantly evoke images of warm winter cabins and roaring fires? Well, now you can snag your own to make that daydream a reality. True to IKEA’s DNA, this brand new golden lantern marries style with function, pairing a retro-inspired shape and brass finish with a very modern LED light. This way, you don’t have to worry about filling it with gas or remembering to snuff out a flame.

4. LUBBAN Serving Cart

Natural textures are a great way to add warmth to any space, and nothing is more trendy right now than rattan. This serving cart combines two woven trays with a black frame and castor wheels for a piece that’s as versatile as it is stylish. Use it to house all the materials you need for your winter knitting hobby or wheel it out as a charming drink or snack stand when you’re binging Netflix.

Sign me up for a Saturday night spent cozying up with this throw and a new read. The tonal plaid pattern perfectly evokes snowy winter days and is neutral enough to work in literally any space. Another perk: It mimics wool but is actually made of acrylic, scoring you a high-end look under budget and making it easy to clean if you happen to spill your hot toddy on it.

6. TUFJORD Upholstered Bed Frame

If you’re looking to make more of a major home upgrade for the season, then IKEA’s chic new TUFJORD bed is for you. A modern take on the upholstered sleigh bed (fitting, right?), this emerald green beauty features a stylish curved frame, velvet upholstery, and sleek chrome legs. Add it to an already light and bright space to create a cozier vibe or go tone-on-tone with other saturated shades for a look that’s a straight mood.

7. APPELVIKEN Chandelier

Set your next dinner party aglow with IKEA’s take on a vintage-look chandelier. Made from powder-coated steel, this rustic piece has four spots to hold LED candles or real tea lights, allowing you to tailor the look to whatever style you prefer. Did I mention candlelight is basically an IRL Instagram filter?

Found: the perfect mug to house everything from your morning matcha to your evening mulled wine. Made using a reactive glaze to give it a handmade appearance, this classic stoneware style looks beautifully bespoke and would be an amazing addition to a coffee cart or open shelving display. It’s actually part of a larger set, so if this whole look gives you heart eyes, you can cycle in all new dishware for the season, too.

9. ISDRABA Cushion Cover

IKEA likens the texture of this new pillow to that of cuddling with a newborn lamb (LOL), and honestly, I’m in. Reminiscent of your favorite sherpa fleece jacket, this plush pick would be the perfect pillow to add to your couch for the winter season. Pair it with other cozy textures, like wool or velvet, or let it pop against a seasonal pattern like plaid or fair isle.

10. OSYNLIG Candle

If you don’t have at least one candle burning at all times during the winter, are you even cozy? This scented stunner features a gorgeous black and amber vessel that will look killer styled on your coffee table or nightstand. Pair those good looks with notes of sandalwood and vanilla, and you have all the essentials for a totally hygge home.
