Here is a confession: Once upon a time, as a cash-strapped college student, I had basically the entire IKEA catalog committed to memory. Another confession: I pretty much still do. Does your ability to spot IKEA pieces match that of a serious fanatic like myself? Take our quiz and find out if you're a Nordic expert or just there for the meatballs.
Here's how this thing works: Each of the 12 interiors pictured has at least one piece from IKEA (though some have more!). The homeowners and designers of these elegant spaces expertly mixed in the Swedish retailer's super affordable decor and furnishings, so prepare for a challenge. Can you spot it? Look up, down and all around. Give yourself one point for each room where you spot the IKEA (and bonus points for multiple pieces, if you really want to). All the products pictured throughout are ones that are currently available at IKEA, although they are not limited to just furniture. Ready? Click the gallery and let's go!
