While we can always count on IKEA to stand in as our primary source for all things minimal, Scandinavian, and (most importantly) affordable, the Swedish retailer does not always come top of mind when searching for bold accent pieces with a color-charged inclination. Perhaps that’s a result of the brand’s commitment to providing essentials sans superfluous features or details. IKEA’s typical pieces are practical without compromising on style and they strictly adhere to the Nordic ethos of simplicity.

So imagine our surprise when we came upon this treasure trove of vibrant pieces available at IKEA. Needless to say, our decorative minds went wild, consumed with all the possibilities of instilling our homes with a vibrant accent without having to compromise on budget or style. Ahead, we share a few of our favorite rainbow-hued pieces (which are conveniently right on trend) from IKEA.
