While we can always count on Ikea to stand in as our primary source for all things chic, Scandinavian, and (arguably, most-importantly) affordable, the Swedish retailer does not always come top of mind when we’re talking bold accent pieces with a color-charged inclination. Perhaps that’s a result of the brand’s commitment to providing essentials sans the suprfluous—pieces that are practical yet don’t compromise on style, with a strict adherence to the simplicity the Nordic region is so well known for.

So, imagine our surprise when we came upon the 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 color-charged accent, sans having to compromise on budget or style. Ahead, a few of our favorite, rainbow-hued pieces (which are conveniently right on trend) from Ikea.

We love this one not only for its untraditional shape but for the fact that it can be displayed on a table or fastened to the wall. Aside from its intended purpose of, you know, providing light, it also doubles as one seriously style-focused accent piece thanks to its cheery yellow hue.
