The wait is over! You can now officially shop the newly-launched IKEA VARMBLIXT collection, initially announced back in 2021 and created in partnership with Rotterdam-based designer Sabine Marcelis. You know what this means? Two words: Donut lamp.

ICYMI, the new line’s pièce de résistance is arguably its orange, round LED light that, yes, does resemble a glowing donut. Beyond its visual appeal, the glossy glass accent can actually function as both a flat-laying table lamp and a hanging wall fixture, and its price comes in at just $69.99. I’m predicting this piece will be the new “it” lighting trend of 2023, so grab one while you can.

Of course, the rest of the well-designed IKEA x Sabine Marcelis drop — elevated drinkware, colorful decor, and more cool lighting galore — deserves equal recognition, too. I picked out a few of my favorite IKEA VARMBLIXT finds below, now available in stores and online. Note that select products will only have limited-edition runs, whereas you’ll be able to shop everything else indefinitely. Be warned that in-demand pieces may already be unavailable, too, but sign up for re-stock notifications to stay in the know!

1 / 7

The donut lamp that started it all: This versatile, ultra unique design lets off a warm glow wherever it lives, whether that’s atop a stack of books or incorporated into a gallery wall. Honestly, who could say no to stylish, donut-inspired decor, especially at this price point?

Another striking VARMBLIXT light, this sculptural pendant combines overlapping glass “U” shapes for the ultimate ceiling focal point. It practically looks like a high-end custom piece, so you’d never guess it came from IKEA and cost just $220.

I love this 2-in-1 tinted mirror and dimmable lamp hybrid, which includes a sliver of LED light paired with bronze-hued glass. Hint: Keep it near a window to let it sparkle in the natural light, especially if your space doesn’t get much sun to begin with.

Count on this sleek carafe and stirrer to up the ante on your year-round dinner parties (or bar cart display), whether you’re serving up lemonade or Negroni pitchers. Make sure you check out the matching champagne coupes and drinking glasses, too, for the full pretty-meets-affordable barware assortment.

Sunset vibes — but make it a rug. This asymmetrical accent features an ombre-effect, gradient orange coloway and 100 percent wool construction to brings a cheery, cozy touch to a living room or bedroom. The shape alone here has me hooked (get it?).

Modernize your open shelving with the VARMBLIXT frosted glass shelf. Round brackets bookend this 27.5-inch-wide platform, adding a more dynamic touch to an otherwise simple home essential. Even just one on its own opens up plenty of extra storage space — and doubles as cool-looking decor — above a credenza, desk, or kitchen counter.

Last but not least, another noteworthy lighting showstopper: the dark-red VARMBLIXT LED wall lamp. This slim, curved style has small spaces written all over it, with the ability to hang either vertically or horizontally from any height.
