10 Etsy Finds Any Diehard IKEA Fan Will Flip For
IKEA is a gift that keeps on giving. Between their unbelievably low prices and insanely adorable home decor offerings, the Swedish megastore will always have a special place in our hearts.
Unsurprisingly, Etsy artisans have crafted some pretty amazing items for IKEA fans across the globe. We rounded up ten of the coolest gift ideas for IKEA lovers on all of Etsy. From furniture decals to discontinued stuff, here are a few of our favorite finds for IKEA fanfolks.
1. Repurposed FRAKTA Gear from VAUK
2. Stylish (and Custom) Slipcovers
The only thing better than a find like IKEA’s beloved $99 HENRIKSDAL chair is a custom slipcover for it. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of stylish and affordable slipcover options for it—and so many other iconic IKEA pieces—on Etsy, many of which can be customized to match your decor (hello mudcloth POÄNG). Try sellers like RockinCushions, Hipica Interiors, or Kilimikea (who makes covers from kilim textiles by hand in Turkey).
3. Vintage and Discontinued IKEA Stuff
It’s a sad truth for IKEA lovers that sometimes our favorite products get discontinued. Luckily, some Etsy retailers like to stock up on soon-to-be-discontinued items—like these iconic RIBBA frames—so you can search the site regularly and find stuff the store no longer carries. You can also scoop up some amazing vintage finds if you’re willing to hunt (and maybe splurge a little bit—in the case of these $425 retro-amazing 1970s pendant lights).
4. IKEA-Instruction-Inspired Greeting Cards
For those moments when when you want to say “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations,” but you’d rather do it in IKEA. Etsy designer Hyphil stocks a whole shop of cheeky greeting cards inspired by assembly instructions, so you’ll find just the right sentiment for any occasion.
5. Replacement Legs
6. High-Style Furniture Decals
7. Wallstirrups Shelf Brackets
Ask any IKEA lover their go-to product for wall-mounted storage and they’ll probably tell you the LACK or EKBY shelf. And now thanks to Etsy, you can score your own handmade Wallstirrups from Quartertwenty (a.k.a. sleek brackets designed to support both styles of shelves) so you can stash more stuff on your floating shelves without worrying about them falling.
8. KALLAX Cushions
Believe it or not, you can repurpose a KALLAX shelf unit into a stylish storage bench—all you need is a cute custom-sized cushion. Fortunately, Etsy has all sorts of snazzy bench cushions designed to fit on top of a KALLAX bookcase, so you can forge an entryway—complete with seating—at home in seconds.
9. This IKEA “FRAKTee”
Searching for the perfect gift for the IKEA-obsessed person in your life? Look no further than this FRAKTA bag trimmed tee shirt from twostringjane on Etsy, that simply screams: “I Love IKEA!” (and won’t require any tricky assembly).
