IKEA has a sneaky habit of quietly dropping new pieces without announcing them. Sure, new collections are highlighted on their site, but I’m talking about individual items that are often too good to be missed. The latest is the HOLMERUD, a new $50 side table that’s as hardworking as it is good-looking.

Designed to fit snugly next to a couch’s armrest, HOLMERUD is as much a table as it is a shelf. Available in both a pale oak and dark wood-effect finish, the table has a sleek architectural design with clean, angular lines, all at an incredibly modest price.

The slim, long shape offers plenty of countertop and storage space without taking up too much square footage, making it ideal for smaller spaces. This table can easily handle a few drinks and snacks up top leaving ample room for magazines, books, remotes, and even a plant or two below. That’s already more than most side tables offer, but it doesn’t stop there.

The HOLMERUD side table is cleverly designed to be used as a single piece or in multiples of two or more. The tables come together seamlessly, making them look like one stylish shelf. You can arrange them in a straight line or in an L-shape to fit whatever configuration you prefer.

Place a couple against a wall to create a stylish media unit at a very affordable price, or place two behind your sofa for an easy-to-reach shelf. I’d even situate one or two in my entryway instead of a console, because of the generous storage opportunities on offer.

Whether you’re looking for a stylish shelf unit, a media console, or a side table, it really doesn’t get much better (or cheaper) than this!
