With the acquisition of a new home comes the acquisition of things to fill it. For about two years now, IKEA has become our go-to for furniture, home goods, and even snacks, if we’re being honest. So, it was a no-brainer that when we made the move to North Buffalo, a trip to Canada to the Burlington IKEA would be made. This, I would say, was our most successful trip yet, as we went in prepared with a list in hand, and didn’t make too many irrational purchases [although naturally, some had to be made, right?]. If you’re interested in seeing what we got on our most recent trip, the remainder of this post is for you!
DISCLAIMER: While most of our purchases are already assembled and placed, we are still in the process of perfecting our home. What this means is that once we finally get everything situated, more detailed posts are to come describing and showing our new home. Until then, you’ll see our purchases via the IKEA website!
INGATORP Drop-Leaf Table | Black-Brown | $159.00 CAD
Buying a kitchen table was one of the main reasons we wanted to make this trip to IKEA, as the one we had previously no longer was able to be used in our new place. The table we ended up with ended up being completely different than the one we thought we’d like – online shopping/browsing isn’t always what it seems! We landed upon this table that fits perfectly as a two-seater in our kitchen, but also has two drop-leaves, making it able to seat four for when we have company over. You can find this item here.
STEFAN Dining Chair | Black-Brown | $25.00 CAD
To go along with our kitchen table, we picked up four dining chairs! You can find this item here.
MALM 6-Drawer Chest | White | $149.00 CAD
Another main reason for this voyage was to get a dresser for all of my clothes. I didn’t bring any of my furniture with me on this move, and decided to start completely fresh. We picked up the 4-drawer version of this exact dresser a year ago when my boyfriend was looking for a new one. It comes in a multitude of colors, styles, sizes, etc. and is extremely easy to assemble! You can find this item here.
POÄNG Armchair with Lysed Gray Cover | Black-Brown | $129.00 CAD
Another item on our list was to look for another seat for our living area, as our KIVIK sofa can really only fit three people. My boyfriend adored this chair and had been talking about it for years, and when we realized it would fit perfectly in the corner we had in mind for another chair, it was almost a no-brainer that we had to get it. This chair comes in a variety of frame colors, as well as cushion covers, making it versatile to fit any home. Another added bonus? It is beyond comfortable! It’s definitely deceiving to the eye. You can find this item here.
PINNING Bench with Shoe Storage | Black | $59.99 CAD
In the entry of our home, we created a mini faux mud room to store some shoes and coats. To make this dream a reality, we picked up this bench that perfectly matches the rest of our home, provides another place to sit, and stores shoes. Honestly, what more could you ask for? You can find this item here.
PINNING Rack with 3 Hooks | Black | $24.99 CAD
Another addition to the faux mud room is a coat hook/rack. You can find this item here.
EKBY HEMNES + EKBY VALTER Wall Shelf | Black | $18.99 CAD
And to finish off our faux mud room, we purchased a shelf to go above the coat rack for some extra storage and to add a little more of a homey feel. Whether it’s to store hats, or another place for home décor, we don’t quite know yet, but I am sure we will figure it out. You can find this item here.
MOSSLANDA Picture Ledge | White | $9.99 CAD
We picked this up to decorate our bedroom! You can find this item here.
KUGGIS Box with Lid | White | $5.99 CAD
Who doesn’t need some extra storage? You can find this item here.
SOCKERBIT Box | White | $1.99 CAD
These fit perfectly inside our linen closet to organize toiletries and other items that would essentially clutter up a shelf. They are perfect! You can find this item here.
FEJKA Artificial Potted Plant | Thyme | $6.99 CAD
Was this necessary? No, definitely not. But it was just too cute! You can find this item here.
BUMERANG Pant Hanger | Natural | $0.99 CAD
Perfect for dress pants, you can’t go wrong with these hangers! You can find this item here.
FNISS Trash Can | Black | $1.75 CAD
An office essential! You can find this item here.
We also picked up some succulents and other plans that you obviously cannot find or purchase on their website. The selection is the best!
What do you think? Did we pick up some good stuff? I’d love to hear your opinion! xoxo.
