7 Things From IKEA We Can't Wait To Have

It's official: The biggest furniture empire is coming to Manila!


Finally, after months of speculation and waiting, it has been confirmed that IKEA is opening in the Philippines. Although not much has been revealed about the exact launch date or where they are expanding, we can't wait to get lost in aisles of build-it-yourself furniture and cute homeware. Just like us, we're sure you're pretty excited as well—but before making up your mind about which items to buy, check out a few of the pieces we'd love to take home and maybe you can add them to your wishlist, too! 

These HÖGSTEN chairs will be the perfect addition to your lanai. Since they are made from plastic rattan, maintenance would be a breeze! 

Looking for an easy way to liven up tired, white walls? These SLÄTTHULT poppy wall decals are your best bet. It's as easy to remove as it is to stick on your walls—no need to worry about peeling paint! 

For those who enjoy taking the time to put on makeup, the LILLJORM mirror with built-in lights can come in handy in keeping your look on point. You can either install it in your T&B or right above your vanity. 

If your home doesn't have a designated room for fresh produce and dry goods, create a makeshift pantry with the FALSTERBO kitchen shelves! 

Keep your home office clutter-free by getting a unit or two of the KVISSLE paper organizers. You can use it to sort mail, documents to-sign, or even bills to pay! 

Give your bedroom a summer-inspired vibe with floral sheets. The STRANDKRYPA set is the perfect mix of fresh, fun, and elegant! 

These KALLAX shelves can keep your entryway looking spic-and-span. Try styling a vignette on the topmost shelf, storing folded outerwear below, and shoes inside the cabinets!
