Being able to host friends and family in our homes again is fun, exciting and heartwarming after so much time apart – but it does require making slightly more of an effort when it comes to our living spaces.
If, like us, you’ve enjoyed hunkering down and becoming a homebody over the last year, you may have become used to putting comfort and ease above style. (Working from bed, letting your floodrobe get out of control, allowing flowers to wither in their vase for a little too long...)
But thanks to IKEA, our failsafe homeware destination, it’s easy and affordable to spruce up our home and make our living spaces feel special and new again. Following the launch of the IKEA Festival on 16th September, which is all about flinging open the doors to how we really live, we've picked nine of the coolest IKEA items available right now (all for under £100).
