You know how a trip to Ikea goes: you go in for some wine glasses and silverware and walk out three hours later with a whole cartload of stuff you didn't even know you needed. Last week the Swedish home decor brand unveiled its latest products and while some are pretty standard, there are a few that will make your life a lot easier. Here, we round up the five must-haves to focus on next time you venture to the mega store, or save time and shop online.
The genius thing about this table/lighting combo is that the lighting cord is designed to keep your phone, tablet or whatever it is you keep on the table in place. Unlike most lamp cords, the orange color makes this one look cool, and you can move it around, threading it into the table anywhere you want.
Graffiti duvet cover, $14.99
This duvet cover is basically a blank canvas for your own personal touch. You can create your own graffiti art on it with fabric dye or paint.
Storage bed, $499 (for a queen size)
Wish you had another closet? This piece is basically a bed and closet in one. Set up, it looks like a typical bed, but with one easy maneuver, it opens up to what is essentially a horizontal closet. You can fit a ton of stuff in there.
Cord-hiding nightstand, $29.99
Cords are the worst. Keep your bedside table looking sleek with this table that not only has room for a powerstrip inside, but allows you to run the cord through the back of the drawer and the back panel.
Suction towel hangers, $7.99 for 5
These helpful hooks are the perfect way to add more towel hanging options to your bathroom without having to drill any holes. Not only do they add a pop of color, they take up less room than a hanging rack.
