The weather is warm, the birds are chirping, and sunshine feels so good. It’s officially time to start moving life outdoors. IKEA just introduced a new piece of furniture to its outdoor collection, and it’s the perfect piece for small-space living. It’s called the FÅLSKÄR and it’s a coffee table that does so much more than just hold coffee.

The FÅLSKÄR is a woven basket-style table that comes with a removable top. That means you can store pretty much anything inside, from outdoor throw pillows and blankets to pool toys and lawn games. Or, you can use the space for more decoration — for example, fill it with twinkle lights to give your patio a bit of added ambiance.

“This outdoor coffee table was exactly what I was looking for,” one person wrote in their review on IKEA’s website. “We have been collecting wine corks for the past 40 years and finally have a place to put them.” Brilliant!

The piece is made with plastic rattan so it will hold up better throughout the years, and the hole in the center of the lid makes pulling the tabletop off super easy. And because it has sturdy feet, the table won’t wobble when you need it to hold your beverages. 

It’s also a compact size of just 20 inches wide, so it’s perfect for smaller patios and balconies. It can even be used inside, too, for extra storage and surface space.

Another reviewer wrote, “Nice small coffee table or end table. I use it on my deck and it’s great for storing extra pillows.” And someone else added, “Really like the looks of it. Mix of modern plus very practical. Great purchase. Love it.”

Grab the FÅLSKÄR for your outdoor entertaining space and put it to work this summer. It could be the just the thing your hangout spot is currently missing.
