There’s nothing quite like a guilt-free Ikea homeware purchase to bring some Swedish style to your space.

While the store may be known for hard-to-pronounce product names and frustratingly inconvenient flat-packed furniture, Ikea’s homewares rival some of the best.

Here are our top five picks for cheap as chips Ikea homewares.

Slipsten | Green wall clock

There’s just something about this toy-like, plastic clock that screams fashion. Its simplicity and subdued green tone is so appealing, that the $14.99 price tag seems like a misprint.

It is 35cm in diameter and claims to have no ‘disturbing ticking sounds’ due to a silent quartz movement. A must-have in any home.

The watercolour prints would look beautiful in a plant filled room or effortlessly add some low maintenance greenery to a stark white space.

They measure 40 x 50 cm and cost $9.99 for the set. You can also pick up a simple black Ikea frame to fit the posters for $7.99.

Made from reinforced polypropylene plastic, the seat is super easy to keep clean and surprisingly comfortable. The underframe can also be purchased separately, meaning you can mix and match the seating and legs.

The chair combo retails for $40 – perhaps stretching the ‘cheap as chips’ claim but hey, for a modern furniture piece, it’s a steal.
