Everybody in the world might own a piece bought from Ikea. The Swedish company has become so popular that recognizing the Billy book shelf or the Lack table is a second nature for most of us. Those Ikea items have kind of conquered the world.
No surprise here, their products are very affordable, functional and easy to build. The large range of furniture available are also one of their main strength. But as much as it is pleasant to have lots of options, it can also be confusing. it’s not easy to see your way through this maze. Sometimes you pass by an item that don’t look like much and then you meet it again at some friend’s home and wonder why you didn’t see its potential.
To prevent that from happening over and over, here are 15 Ikea items that you can’t go wrong with.
