I love, love, LOVE IKEA. As all parents know, children will destroy everything you love in their path. So, this time in my life is just not conducive to Italian leather sofas and delicate crystal. Sofas costing less than a mortgage payment and simple, practical pieces are much more my speed right now.
Unfortunately, I live in a suburbs of a city that not only doesn’t have an IKEA, it probably will never get one due to population density requirements. So, in order to get my reasonably priced Swedish home furnishings and meatball fix, I have to make the two-hour trek each way. The $99 delivery charge is reasonable if you’re furnishing a room, but maybe not worth it for a couple small items.
Then I discovered some of my IKEA favorites on available on… (((drumroll))) Amazon Prime! Suddenly I can get a Poang chair to my doorstep in two days time?! The prices vary a bit. Most of the items are very close to the grab-and-go price at an IKEA store. Some are a little higher. But, if you don’t have an IKEA store nearby, it’s perfect!
Here are some of my favorite items I found:
Plastis Dishwashing Brushes ($9)– I love this daggone things! They scrub great and suction to the side of the sink. Then throw in the dishwasher to clean. I always stock up on these.
Magnarp Floor Lamp ($39)– This floor lamp with rice paper shade is a favorite for giving your space a soft glow.
Fornuft Flatware Set ($15)– An entire flatware set for 15 bucks! Perfect for a housewarming gift or a new college student.
Knappa Pendant Lamp ($39)– Love this stunning pendant, which at less than 40 bucks is a total bargain.
Blahaj Shark ($29)– My marine-obsessed son LOVES this cushy shark, which he sleeps with and takes up about half the bed.
Bevara clips ($5)– I have about one million of these and they’re great.
Kladd Prickar bibs ($11)– These are AMAZING for toddlers. From finger painting to messy spaghetti dinners, they completely protect your little one’s clothes from messes!
Poang Chair ($134)– This classic chair is so comfortable, versatile and practical. I love it.
Notudden Hanging Organizer ($15)– You could put one of these in every room of your house from pantry to bedrooms and find something to organize!
Not Floor Lamp ($17)– Modern floor lamp for less than 20 bucks!
Latt Children’s Table and Chairs ($48)– Perfect little set for dining, playing, creating, whatever!
Sylt Lingon Lingonberry Preserves ($34/pack of 4)– Yes you can even get the iconic lingonberry preserves to complement your meatballs at home. Price is a bit steep, but worth it if you have a serious craving. 😉
Fratka Bags ($9/ set of 4)– These super durable bags are great for lugging groceries, beach gear, etc.
Forskitig Stool ($10)– I keep this in the kids’ bathroom and it’s great for when the kids need a little help brushing their teeth and washing hands.
Kalas Flatware Set ($5)– An entire kid’s flatware set for 5 bucks! I love their kids dinnerware. It’s very durable and easy for little kids to use.
Variera Pot Lid Organizer ($13)– I will glad pay $13 not to have my lids scattered everywhere. Please and thank you.
Hope you enjoyed this list! Knowing I could get IKEA goods on Amazon was a total game changer for me! Quantities are often limited on these items, especially if the price is very comparable to IKEA’s catalog, so if you see something you want– snag it quickly! Although the Amazon selection isn’t as vast as an IKEA store, it’s worth checking! So if you’re searching for a specific IKEA item, search Amazon and you might get lucky.
