IKEA is possibly one of my favorite stores. It stands out as different from the rest of the list and it took me a while to feel the love for this bargain store. If you ever wonder if IKEA mixes well with vintage style or if IKEA furniture has a place in the middle of your classic style then let me answer for you. YES!
I’m going to show and share some things you should definitely look for at IKEA to mix into your home decor for an affordable complement to your style. Traditionally IKEA is known for sleek, modern furniture, but they have some classic pieces and trendy accessories that are must-haves! By the way, this is NOT a sponsored post of any kind, just sharing my experience and opinion. Here we go, a list of things to shop for at IKEA:
Sofas and chairs – The Ektorp sofa and chairs are classic club type style that are super duper affordable and durable. With washable slipcovers you can hardly go wrong, these chairs fit into a classic vintage home easily. The slipcovers come in a variety of colors and some stores on Etsy sell more options. I have the Ektorp love-seat in Nordvalla dark gray in my breakfast room,
and the armchairs in Vittaryd white in my living room.I even have another style IKEA sofa in our study…They have occasional chairs in rattan and other woven patterns that add glorious texture to your living areas.If you want to make big changes in your home especially in your kitchen they have some amazing, affordable options for a classic kitchen like this stunning black sink and faucet combo…
or how about a luxurious gold faucet?IKEA even has cabinet options to configure a stunning kitchen if you are up for a massive remodel or new build!I enjoy shopping the aisles of IKEA for smart accessories like classic organizational items to mix in for functionality and seamless design.There are always great plants to be found at IKEA. Plants add a punch of life, color, and texture to any style home. You can find a great array of real looking faux plants
But they even have THE BEST LIVE plants!!! Look at this braided trunk beauty I picked up at IKEA for our breakfast room! For real, you wouldn’t think it but their plant department packs a punch! If you are looking to set a gorgeous table with vintage plates or china consider IKEA for the building blocks of a great tablescape. They have lots of basic placemats,
cloth napkins, and table runners at great prices. Plus glassware and dishes that blend with everything.
That leads me to bedding. For real…sheets, comforters, duvets and more (you can even buy a mattress or bed there!) I have this classic black and white IKEA bedding in my guest room (the tall storage cabinets on the sides of our Murphy bed are IKEA as well as my desk that sits in the corner)…they have farmhouse bedding and even shabby chic! If you want to layer in basic pillows for your living room or sitting area you can find some budget-friendly options at IKEA. Their pillow covers are also great to use for craft projects if you want to make your own style pillow.This is where I break for a snack, you can do it too in the store! They have yummy lunch, but I adore the desserts. The Daim cake is my absolute favorite and if you like it you can buy it in the small grocery section up front! This chocolate cake is pretty nice too…Now let’s talk about small details like the hardware you can find to update a vintage dresser or add to your cabinets. Then there are things like vintage feeling hooks and hanging organizational options to mix into your decor. Don’t forget your floors! You could add in this warm feeling wood tileor a natural fiber rug (they have lots of choices). My favorite is the kilim rugs they have to choose from, these aren’t the easiest on the budget, but they are FABULOUS!Next up is lighting and you will be hard pressed to find better pricing on light fixtures that can mix in with vintage style so easily!Literally, from top to bottom there are classic options to mix into your vintage style home decor from IKEA. You just have to go and check it out for yourself! I didn’t even cover all you might procure from this Swedish mecca. If you haven’t considered IKEA as an option, I’m obviously a big fan! Let me know what you find and share this post so others can find a fun new hunting ground!
