7 Little Luxuries Under $50 You’d Never Guess Were from IKEA
IKEA is known for offering some of the best modern, big-ticket furniture buys on a budget, but the beloved Scandi brand is also an underrated shopping destination for smaller decor and lifestyle scores. If you’re on an IKEA excursion or browsing online, you’re probably laser-focused on picking out more foundational pieces (bed, couch, desk, etc.), so it’s easy to skim over the little things. From table lamps and textiles to glassware, though, there’s no shortage of unique, affordable, ready-to-shop finishing touches that honestly look so luxe, you’d never even guess they came from IKEA.
Because the company carries hundreds — if not thousands — of products, I took the liberty of picking out seven of my favorite IKEA little decorating luxuries under $50 then teamed up with Apartment Therapy’s Home Projects Director, Megan Baker Detloff, for some shopping reconnaissance on each of these finds. She got a chance to scope them out at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, location to confirm that they are, in fact, even more wow-worthy IRL. Think: stylish water bottles (yes, you can get water bottles from IKEA), unique trays, cozy accessories, and more, meant to give your home — and life — a little design boost without breaking the bank. Best of all? Zero assembly is required, all across the board.
