Grandmillennial style is in full bloom—think more is more, especially when it comes to patterns and textures. The great thing about this trend is that it’s centered around vintage and vintage-looking pieces. So if you’re lucky enough to have a few family heirlooms or hand-me-downs, you’re golden. If not, no worries. Even if you can’t hit a thrift store or flea market right now, affordable grandmillennial finds are starting to pop up everywhere online. Guess what retailer is the latest to hop on this bandwagon? IKEA! While IKEA tends to be best known for their Scandi modern furniture, they’ve always stocked more traditional Swedish countryside decor alongside the sleeker items. I took a virtual spin around the store to bring you 10 must-have pieces if you like this throwback trend and are looking to spruce up your home. The best thing about them? There’s little to no assembly required, and they can all be shipped directly to your door!
