There’s way more to Ikea than stark white furniture and basic home accessories. As of late, the retailer has been stepping out of its comfort zone with cool collaborations, futuristic shopping apps, and unbeatable summer buys, proving you don’t need to plan an entire home remodel to have a reason to visit the store. Stock up on the brightest, boldest affordable summer accessories—from beach chairs to planters—all for under $50.
