Want to know what's new in at Ikea? Urm, who doesn't? Seriously, there's nothing like a mega-browse of our favorite handy homeware Scandi store to get us in the mood for an interiors revamp. Right now, the 'New In' section is popping and we've put together a roundup of all the things we're loving. 

Nope, the shops aren't open for in-store shopping right now but Ikea is still open online for home deliveries, as well as for click and collect from all stores... you don't need to tell us twice! Our virtual baskets are full to the brim with fab new Ikea finds so keep scrolling for the low-down on what we've found!

Oh and for more living room ideas (our fave, and in our opinion the easiest room to redecorate for the new year) head over to our full gallery.

1. A statement sofa on a serious budget

Omgggg this set of four vases from Ikea is such an easy interior design hack, adding intrigue and style to any empty space. Style with flowers or don them as the beautiful objects that they are in their own right. 

3. Create some texture with natural material

Oh what we would do to be sat on that step in the sun, donning a straw hat... Unfortunately, that may not be an option right now but adorning your living space with soft, natural storage solutions such as this relaxed jute basket works too! Rustic chic and affordable... love it. 

4. An industrial chic pendant light for a moody ambiance
