Ikea 2017. What’s caught my eye?

Ikea have a habit of dropping little gems into their range without you even noticing. Some pop in and out of stock before you can say Billy Bookcase.

I remember tweeting Ikea ages ago asking why they didn’t have a “What’s New” tab on their website. A page you could jump straight onto to see what treasures had arrived recently. And do you know what? They’ve flippin’ well got one now, so i’m taking full credit, everyone. You can thank me later. It’s here: New

So here are some of my fave pieces that are indeed new for 2017. Stuff I would quite like to have for myself or put into projects.

Come see…

LIXHULT cabinet, £29

I actually already have one of these at home.

That didn’t take long did it?

PS 2017 Storage Cabinet, £55 and Table Lamp, £25

More from that range below…

PS 2017 lighting range from £19 – £69

FJALLBO Shelving Unit, £75 with the new HEKTAR Floor Lamp with 3 Spots, £49

GRENO Outdoor Cushion, £9

OSTLIG Plant Pot, £25 (comes in three sizes and two colours)

Shelving Unit PS 2017, £75

In beech and white powder coated metal, these are a really similar design to the Hay modular shelving units that come in at thrice the price. Nice one Ikea. Thanks again for adding this dinky trolley to the mix too.

PS 2017 Trolley/Side Table, £75

SENAP Plant Pot with Saucer, £2

Yes, I know they’re not going to change the world, but it’s grey earthenware. Simple utilitarian design that’s not orange. Win.

SALLADSKÅL Plant Stand, £35 (but with the grey SENAP plant pots please)

SMÅTÖREL Velvet Cushion, £15

SOLIDASTER black out curtains, £40

HINDO Cabinet/Greenhouse, £80

I love this, outdoor or indoor. Metal and glass cabinets are so on trend right now, but often cost a bomb. This is a really affordable way of adding an industrial style display cabinet to your home without selling your first born.

How nice is that? And £80!

MALSJÖ Glass Door Cabinet (with brass handles)


PS 2017 Self Watering Planter, £15

For those of you who just can’t keep anything green alive. You know who you are, yes, you.

And to end…

PS 2017 2 seat sofa

Quite possibly the most horrendous thing i’ve seen come out of Ikea for a while. I don’t get it. I don’t want it. I don’t want anyone I know to have it. Although it would look quite good on CBeebies no? Or maybe in one of those crazy open-plan offices where they have a ball-pool, Space Hoppers and an “ideas shed” instead of a meeting room. You know the ones. Flippin’ hipster offices.

So whaddya think? Anything here new to you? Anything here you’d quite like to have yourself at home? Did you buy that sofa already?

All images, Ikea.

    Deffo getting a Lixhult for all the little bits and pieces, just dinky enough to fit in a little corner. Love!

  2. Flora says

    Thank you for the giving us the ‘new’ tab, if indeed they pinched the idea from you! 😉 Good noticing though, either way.

    I do love those black out curtains, and the fjallbo shelving unit – lots and lots.

    I spent a crazy amount of money in IKEA this month already though, so no more for shopping me! 😉


  3. LOL – that sofa!!! I absolutely love the last self watering plant pot, I might juts have to but=y one on my trip to ikea on friday!

    • Karen Knox says

      Haha. It’s frickin horrible isn’t it? And yes, I recommend getting the fancy plant pot. Nice init!

  4. I must have gone round too quickly today as I didn’t see any of these! Good job really, saved me spending any more money! Sofa is horrific but probably fun for a kid’s playroom?

  5. Karen, PLEASE can we still be mates?
    I fear you’re not going to like what I’m going to say…

    That final couch is a thing of dreams. haha!

    I bloody love it! It’s absolutely f*cking bonkers and I DIG IT! xxx

  6. It’s all lovely! I haven’t looked at Ikea recently, but this is the second post I’ve read this week on their new products and I can feel a visit coming on…. The self-watering planter sounds like a useful item to have.

  7. Haha! Have been to IKEA Sooo many times recently, but strictly on the basis of
    Proceed directly to Besta.
    Do not pass through Marketplace.
    Do not spend £200.
    Consequently I am wanting a good old rummage to find styling props for the wallpaper shoot, but you’ve done it for me here, I think. Big thanks!
    Hmm, that Malsjo Cabinet would look fab…

  8. As much as I love all my vintage bits and bobs, I can’t resist a bit of Ikea. The Marketplace is the most “dangerous” part for me… 😉

  9. What a fantastic selection of products, apart from that god-awful sofa of course. That goes without saying! I really love all the plant pots, especially the self watering one. I feel like these give me hope that I will one day be able to keep my plants alive. I particularly like the FJALLBO Shelving Unit and the HEKTAR Floor Lamp.

  10. I styled the latest IKEA press range – I didn’t even know about half of this stuff!! I love the black metal and wooden shelving unit. I was looking for something just like that for ages before I bought my little desk. Oh well – just means I need to pop into Ikea more often.
