A room divider and dresser with leather pulls are just two of the things we need from Ikea’s newest launch
With the launch of every Ikea catalogue, we revisit forgotten classics (so we meet again, Billy bookcase) and take bets on which items will spark Kijiji bidding wars years from now. We’re not psychic, but we predict that these five items will be showing up in the apartments of our trendy yet space-strapped friends in the very near future. Oh, and our own nanoscale rental units.
1. TARVA is a daybed and pullout double bed in one – perfect for studio apartments with limited space, or as a guest bed. $395 with two mattresses.
2. The RÅSKOG utility cart has been on our space-saving radar for a while, but this dark blue colour is new and worth pouncing on. $40.
3. BJÖRKSNÄS is a five-drawer birch dresser with rounded Scandinavian legs AND LEATHER PULLS. Did we say that loud enough? $349.
4. The VEBERÖD room divider is the room divider we didn’t know we wanted or needed — but now we can’t stop moving it around our one-bedroom apartment. We love it styled as a green wall for privacy. $149.
