When it comes to small space essentials, IKEA is one of my go-to spots to stock up on everything from compact, double-duty furniture to artful accessories. And the Swedish retailer’s lighting section, in particular, is not to be missed — especially if you’re shopping for a home with minimal square footage. Here, 10 compact picks you shouldn’t miss — all under $65.

Make your work setup that much more productive by grabbing a task lamp with a wireless charging function included.

This wall lamp is a must for bathrooms with limited horizontal wall space — install it vertically, and enjoy its sculpture-like appearance. (You’ll never worry about applying makeup in a dim setting ever again, either.)
