Ok y’all. Let’s talk about IKEA and more importantly, the boho decor IKEA currently has going on. Today’s post is all about the items I spotted on a recent IKEA run so read on to see more and get a few ideas on how to incorporate them into your eclectic abode.
Boho Decor | IKEA-Style
Many of my clients are young professionals who are just getting started in their careers or are moving into their first homes. Depending on the project, spending a ton on furniture isn’t always an option. In those cases, I may turn to IKEA for a few modern pieces that won’t break the bank. I believe the trick is about mixing and matching. Read: everything in the room is definitely not from IKEA.
Here are a few of the pieces I’d love to include as I begin decorating our upstairs…stay tuned for more on that soon!
If you are a decormademedoit regular, you know I love to design from the ground up. New in the IKEA rug section, you’ll find the patchwork beauty:
According to the product description on IKEA.com, the SILKEBORG rug
– This rug is unique since it’s created from patches of old traditional handmade Turkish rugs.
– The old patches are washed, re-dyed and stitched together to a new and modern piece of artwork
I was surprised to see not just one, but 4 different rattan chair or chaise options at IKEA. I love the idea of adding one of these as an accent chair in a small space or multifunctional room. Not only are they lightweight and easy to move, the see through design lets the eye continue to move through the space.

So the next one also comes in a bench option. A bench y’all. I’d love to see the bench in a foyer, in front of a large window, or even on a front porch. Where would you use it? Leave me a comment below and let me know 🙂

I’d love to use the next one around a dining table or in a sun room. So fun. I really love that it has the lines of a traditional chair but in a material that keeps it airy and free-spirited. FYI, I can’t find this one online anymore, but I would check your local store anyway!
Above chair: Jassa Chair
I love, love, love aricturectureal nooks in homes. Each of our upstairs bedrooms has one and I’m dying to create a window seat. Honestly, these vibrant cushions from IKEA would work to create a cozy corner or seating area even without a window. Who needs a reason to stack 12-27 pillows in a pile and lay in them? Yeah, me neither!
Like the chair above, these cushions are also from the Jassa line. It’s a limited edition run, so definitely check out your local store. I bet they’ll even be on sale!
These both make great options for apartment dwelling too. I’d also love to use these or something similar to style an outdoor dinner.
Do you see the handles?
THESE lace curtain panels
So dainty and delicate. I’d love to pair them a geometric patterned rug and a gnarly, massive cactus!
I’m a big fan of IKEA for everyday organization pieces. They are a fantastic resource for inexpensive baskets and boxes. Here are a few baskets from the Jassa line. But by this point, aren’t you already on your way to IKEA to find that rattan chair?
On the website, IKEA categorized these as “vases.” I guess they mean vases for anything but water. Which makes it a basket, right?
Above is the FLÅDIS basket from IKEA. This one is by far my favorite. I’ve seen it all over The Gram as a disguise for planters and Fiddle leaf figs look amazing in these! I use it to store linens in one of our closets.
Plants make the Room
I never pass up a good plant but I’ve heard that IKEA succulents are a total waste of money. Have you ever tried one? Did it die? Leave me a comment below! I can’t knock their plant department though because I have a very happy and healthy snake plant from IKEA currently hanging out in our powder room.
In any event, they has the plants!!!
I also love the IKEA planters below. I’ve used them recently on a wedding decor project when I distressed them. You can get the details on how to distress terra-cotta pots here.

I also love this hanging planter idea. Winter is coming so I’ll need all of the indoor plant ‘storage’ I can get!

I’d love to know what you thought about this post. Are there any items that inspired you to add boho decor IKEA style?
