Spend wisely—carefully blending high and low pieces, from contemporary high-end designer pieces to street finds and vintage treasures. This high/low mix is beloved by everyone in the fashion and design worlds, but there is an art to perfecting it. So how do you know when to splurge and when to save? We did some searching, and compiled some of our favorite cheap and chic IKEA pieces—because the company's items look anything but budget. Pair them with some stylish investment buys, and achieve the ultimate high/low look at home.
