After 20+ years in this industry, there’s one thing I know with certainty. There’s only one real thing that separates good design from bad and that is editing. That’s right – the maximum potential of any design is a product of careful, meticulous editing. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise that even interior designers will mix affordable pieces IKEA products with some high priced ones from time to time. I certainly have! Hence, I present you my list of the top 10 “designer approved” IKEA products that can fuse in any interior seamlessly and not break your style.

I kid you not. The products on this list have been selected so that even if you introduce any of them in your space, then with a bit of editing on your behalf, they will look great. You see I truly believe that if you take the time to examine your product(s) of choice a little more closely, then it is possible to buy pieces that you will end up holding on to for a long time even if some of them come an IKEA store! And needless to say that with a little hacking too, you will end up with a very unique outcome that will tell your story.

So without further ado, click on the video below to watch the three attributes that will help you make wiser selections as I walk you through my list… 😉

I hope you enjoyed. Do let me know if you found this list helpful…

Love always,

  • Very useful video! Next time i will buy a product from ikea or somewhere else i will check the flow!

  • This was amazing! I always get confused when it comes to determining which ikea products to buy cause there are just too many! This video really helped me understand what is worth buying and why! Need more of these videos please!!!

    • Thank you Kelly! IKEA has SO many products, but surely some stand out more than others. A closer and more critical look at them (especially if you narrow down your choices from room to room) will be much more effective in the long run. Have a great day! xx
