The latest IKEA catalog has arrived, and there were several standout items (hello, gold flatware!). There were also three pieces that I loved, that reminded me of much pricier options I’ve seen on the market. These aren’t copies, dupes, or knockoffs, but rather stylish options for a similar modern look at a lower price. Nice!
This is not on their site yet, but IKEA released a video about the design and sustainable materials involved (embedded below). If you like the simplified silhouette and curves of Muuto’s Nerd chair, this is a great budget-friendly option.
I was a fan of the Stockholm sofa from a few years ago (now discontinued), and our Kivik has held up great, but I think this might be my favorite IKEA sofa design yet! Skirted upholstery has been rising in popularity over the last several years, so this feels on trend, but still classic, much like Restoration Hardware’s slipcovered classic slope arm collection. Also very similar to the sofa featured in this past edition of Making it Yours.
IKEA FÄRLÖV Sofa, $699
(also available as a loveseat, sectional, or armchair — each in white or beige)
Such a great, modern armchair! Similar in feel to Blu Dot’s Field Lounge Chair, and the classic Saarinen Womb Chair, but only a few hundred dollars. Painting the wooden legs would be a fun way to customize it.
