I’ve been browsing through IKEA’s offerings online and I have to say, IKEA as per usual has its finger firmly on the ‘design’ pulse. It seems to be paying attention to contemporary trends so much more these days. Yes, the modern(ist) Scandinavian influence and styling is still very prevalent but I do feel it has made amazing progress regarding its industrial inspired designs – they have that funky, contemporary edge that can be seen in more high end offerings, whilst STILL keeping the price DOWN. And yes, some of their products can still look a little on the ‘cheap’ side but not all of them. If you look carefully, you’ll find some little gems from IKEA that would confidently sit alongside more high end products.
I’ve compiled a list of my Top 5 (in some cases I’ve included a number of products within the same genre) - for not only their ridiculously low price and eye-catching aesthetic but also for remaining on trend.
Well done IKEA; keep giving those top-notch designers a run for their money!
