We love IKEA in particular for any first apartment or first home because it is genuinely the perfect simple minimal furniture for any starter home. They also have so many classic pieces that home owners use well beyond their first apartment and first home owning years that we want to keep note of as well. The Swedish furniture brand was actually founded back in 1943, making it a well-known brand in the furniture space. While the furniture is budget friendly it maintains a sleek, European design and is always among the most functional furniture options. If you're looking for clean, modern and minimal furniture that is inexpensive, look no further than IKEA. Looking for a list of their most dependable furniture options? We'll break it down for you.
Among their many affordable furniture options, here are, what we think, are the most popular IKEA products of all time. First on our cheat sheet, we love the Malm bed.It's so simple, and will honestly match any room due to it's simplicity and clean design. We also love the Malm collection because the matching Malm dresser and Malm nightstand are equally aesthetic, clean and appealing for bedroom furniture. If you’re looking for another dresser option, we also really love the IKEA Brimnes Dresser. Finally, The IKEA Malm Bed really steals the spotlight, so we want to show some love to the Hemnes Bed and Hemnes night stand, which are both equally worthy bedroom furniture pieces you should give some time to check out. Next: storage furniture. The billy bookcase won't let you down and is a great option if you're looking for multi-functional furniture. The Kallax shelving unit and Kallax bookshelf are both great storage furniture options. PS, if you're wondering where everyone gets their sheepskin rugs from, its probably the IKEA Rens Sheepskin rug. Another rug from IKEA if you don’t want to spend thousands? The Stockholm rug! Its a flat-weave rug that comes in tons of patterns and will match any room in any apartment. Ok, let's talk IKEA sofas. The Ektorp sofa (we pretend we know Swedish) is essential, traditional style furniture, that your apartment or home needs. The Ektorp collection from IKEA also includes the Ektorp chair, which is a great accent piece to any living room. All great living rooms also need a coffee table, and the Stockholm Oval coffee table is the perfect coffee table for aesthetic style on a budget. Surely there must be more sofa recommendations, right? Absolutely. If the Ektorp sofa sin’t your style, we recommend checking out the Karlstad sofa, Kivik Sofa or the Klippan sofas. If you want something a bit bigger, like a sectional, the Soderhamn Sectional sofa is a good choice too. If you’re the awesome person who frequently allows people to crash on their couch, the Friheten Sleeper sofa might be the better fit for your entertaining needs. If you’d rather shop for a loveseat with an armchair, the Poong white armchair is a classic and fan favorite from IKEA. What are some other favorite chairs from IKEA? Definitely the IKEA Tobias chair and the Vilmar dining chair. If you need a table, we have to recommend the Bjursta table. Just a bonus, if you're working on a gallery wall, IKEA Ribba frames are a great start to complete designing your dream living room as well! When completing your living room decor, the Stockholm mirror is also a great choice form IKEA. Finally the IKEA Alex drawers are an absolute must for organization. If you're trying to organize your apartment or home, this is a great item to grab. Last but not least, office furniture. IKEA has great office furniture options, like the Linnmon Alex desk! If you need a little more room for books or other organizing needs, the IKEA billy bookcase is also a great storage furniture option.
