42 Chic IKEA Items That Look Expensive but Cost Less Than $100

IKEA is a great resource for children's furniture

IKEA

There's something incredibly magnetic about IKEA. Whether you pop in a store or browse online, once you start to shop, you simply can't stop. It's one of those places where you go in for a couple of things, but come out with an entire shopping cart you never knew you needed. But with such great prices and unbeatable quality, you can't go wrong—and thanks to their minimalist Swedish style, IKEA's designs are timeless classics that won't date come next season, either. 

So in honor of one of our favorite affordable home brands, we trawled every section to find the chicest and the cheapest pieces in store right now. We grouped them in order by room so you can upgrade the space that needs it most—or why not upgrade all of them? With these prices, you won't have to choose just one. Happy shopping. 

Below, read on to find 22 of our favorite IKEA picks under $100.
