Shoes, toys, blankets, technology — there’s no end to the necessary clutter that needs a home in my house. That’s why I’m forever searching for budget-friendly, aesthetically-pleasing storage options that fit seamlessly into the decor of my space. Luckily, IKEA’s newly-released TOLKNING collection offers just that, from pretty under-bed baskets to double-duty benches and ottomans, just to name a few. Not only does the line deliver when it comes to functional storage in a range of sizes, but the earthy materials used throughout (rattan, natural fibers, and wood) also invite warmth into any area.

In addition to display-worthy decluttering must-haves, the collection also features an equally stylish rattan room divider and matching headboard. Products range from $10.99 for small baskets to $359 for a king-sized bed frame, meaning there’s something for every price point. Below, I picked out a few of my favorite, small-space-friendly picks from IKEA’s TOLKNING line that have me dreaming of minimal-boho bliss, from the bedroom to beyond.

Creating additional seating and storage, the TOLKNING bench has a slender silhouette that doesn’t overpower a space (especially important if your room falls on the smaller side). I’d situate the bench at the end of my bed to stash extra linens, but it would also work wonders in an entryway for shoes, backpacks, and more — or, honestly styled pretty much anywhere!

The VEVELSTAD bed frame — which includes two built-in TOLKNING headboards — strikes a happy medium between understated and bold. Sizes range from twin to king, but you can also buy a pair of the headboards separately to get the same effect with your existing bed. Either way, this look would work well in a pared-down room with luxe linens in muted colors, or a maximalist haven with an explosion of plants and art.

Admittedly, I have a basket problem — I’ve been hooked ever since getting my first handmade basket years ago. The TOLKNING basket is not only crafted by hand, but it’s also sturdy and fits right under the bed. Accessories, reading materials, and off-season clothes stay safe and sound while your under-bed area looks naturally organized.

My favorite feature of the TOLKNING nightstand is the removable tray, which has lazy breakfast-in-bed vibes. As for the bottom shelf, it's actually a basket, creating even more storage for items you don’t want to see on the daily, like extra phone chargers or books. This piece can even double as a stylish side table in the living room, too.

If your household is anything like mine, privacy is hard to come by. I’d use the rattan TOLKNING room divider in my kids’ shared space to give them a sense of independence and peace. Or, it could also function throughout the home to create division and make “rooms” where there might not be walls.

Love ottomans with a storage component? The durable, yet compact TOLKNING style is strong enough to use as seating in any room and deep enough to keep rolled-up towels or blankets.
