A-May-zing Must-Haves: IKEA’s May Deals, Meals, and New Furnishings

There’s so much happening in the month of May! With Mother’s Day coming up, the June holidays steadily approaching, and so much more, I believe we all deserve to have a little self-care during these special holidays. And that self-care my friends, can all be achieved thanks to IKEA!

IKEA is bringing you a world of enticing savings, limited-time additions to their IKEA Swedish Restaurant, and the latest new pieces in IKEA Singapore! With endless offers this May, allow me to share with you what you can look forward to the next time you’re at IKEA!

The TONSTAD living room series and Storage-saving Furniture

IKEA May Offerings: TONSTAD Side Table
The TONSTAD living room series has the best of both worlds — form and function

For all my IKEA lovers out there, you know very well that form and function are among the key qualities you can find in every IKEA product! As part of the latest additions to IKEA Singapore, the TONSTAD living room series offers various ways to fill your living space with useful and aesthetically pleasing furniture.

Explore versatile storage combinations that are easy to assemble thanks to the wedge dowel/keyhole technique! TONSTAD exteriors also blend brushed oak veneer, attention to detail, and a high-quality look and feel. By using a single shelf or combining more units to create a larger solution, you can hide away things and put the spotlight on your favourite items without breaking a sweat!

Let’s start with the TONSTAD side table, a wonderful living room table with a shelf under its tabletop for easy storage and subtle display. A soft-closing drawer on top of the shelf also keeps your items dust-free and again, provides more convenient storage space! 

Another is the TONSTAD bookcase and with three movable shelves, it is adaptable to your every need. This bookcase offers storage for a limited space and you can transform it into the foundation for a larger storage solution! Give your home an elegant, timeless look with the classically designed TONSTAD bookcase that will effortlessly blend in with the rest of your home.

Finally, we have the TONSTAD cabinet with sliding glass doors. Designed with clean lines and elegant details, the deep shelves have plenty of space to store whatever your heart desires including binders, plates, and more! The doors to this cabinet also close quietly and softly due to the integrated soft-closing function so don’t worry about any noise disturbances no matter how you close the doors.

Beyond the TONSTAD series, IKEA has other other storage-saving furniture you can look forward to. Store your things in style with the new KJUGE pouffe with storage. This handy cushioned footstool is three pieces of furniture in one — the comfy footstool acts as a resting place for your feet, extra seating for guests when you have them over in your home, and smart storage within the footstool to keep your things organised!

The KJUGE pouffe with storage is both a stylish and practical piece you can add to your living room

With its unique hexagonal shape, you can also combine multiple pouffes to a creative formation which could help add to the aesthetic of your living room! The KJUGE pouffe with storage is the perfect example of being practical and multi-functional yet pleasing to the eye.

You can’t have seats without a table, am I right? This is where the ÖSTAVALL adjustable coffee table comes in. You can raise or lower this table smoothly and safely using the gas spring to cater for a variety of activities in your living room! Additionally, like the KJUGE pouffe with storage, this coffee table also has hidden storage space within for more organisation.

Your mum should have the most luxurious armchair possible to pair perfectly with her armchair. The POÄNG rocking chair has a timeless design and provides maximum comfort so that she’ll never leave her seat for hours! Originally S$259, this armchair now goes for S$219 during this period.

After shopping for hours, you and your mum will probably be exhausted so while you’re still in IKEA, walk over to the IKEA Swedish Restaurant for a well-deserved meal! Offers on selected meals will be available for IKEA Family members from 9 to 12 May 2024 so you should take your mum to IKEA during the Mother’s Day weekend to not miss out!

Choose between the buttery, flaky croissant with plant-based patty and scrambled egg and the juicy salmon fillet with quinoa, creamy potato sauce, and mushroom soup! Then, treat your mum to the rich chocolate cremeux cake which comes in the shape of a lovely red heart tied with a bow.

Everyone loves a good deal and IKEA has one you won’t want to miss out on! From 1 to 31 May 2024, IKEA Family Members can receive a S$25 IKEA voucher with a minimum spend of S$250 on BESTÅ storage! And that’s not all! Based on minimum spend, members can also receive up to S$100 in vouchers! This promotion applies to in-store and online purchases, and terms and conditions apply.

Unsure if you want to get the BESTÅ range? Then let me tell you the deets and you decide whether the range is what you’re looking for! From pre-designed combinations to customisable options, the BESTÅ range aims to give you the perfect storage and TV consoles for your lifestyle.

Manage cable chaos with the BESTÅ TV bench with drawers! You get lots of storage space so you no longer have to deal with messy cables that may gather dust. The BESTÅ TV bench’s drawers are also well suited to store other items like your remote controls and other TV accessories.

And haven’t I already told you how IKEA’s products are both practical and visually appealing? You’ll never have to compromise on either of these qualities as the practical BESTÅ TV bench has a smart, contemporary look to complement your equally smart-looking TV!

Be spoilt for choice as another TV bench you can consider is the BESTÅ TV bench with doors which is also a smart solution combining its good looks with its functionality. Last but not least in the collection we have the versatile BESTÅ storage combination with doors. This furnishing allows you to create endless storage and organisation possibilities whilst looking stylish, a match made in heaven.

Discounts on Work chairs, Tables, and Storage Units

There can never be enough deals, right? So if you want to go all out in adding or replacing your home’s furnishings, you can transform your workspace for less!

With its swivel function and adjustable seat, find a comfortable working position with ease on the BLECKBERGET swivel chair! Inspired by traditional 50’s and 60’s chairs, the BLECKBERGET swivel chair has a modern twist for our current way of life and work! No matter where you are at home, the swivel chair fits in every room perfectly and provides maximum comfort.

But sometimes you need armrests for your swivel chair so here are some armrest options for your consideration! Another swivel chair for the list is the MILLBERGET swivel chair. With its elegant appearance, the swivel chair has both comfort and function which are the main qualities I look for when I’m using a chair to work at my desk – if I do say so myself. 

This can be seen in how it has adjustable tilt tension to adjust the resistance to suit your movements and weight as well as its high backrest for proper back support! Also, the seat and the chair’s back are perforated to let air flow through your body which means no discomfort even after long hours at your desk.

Next up, designed with gentle curves for lumbar (lower part of the back) support, the LÄNGFJÄLL conference chair with armrests can be a great addition to your office. This conference chair is helpful in terms of maintaining the correct posture while seated too so this is one more option if you’re interested in chairs that provide the support that your posture needs.

If you’re not eyeing a swivel chair, don’t fret! IKEA has the TROLLBERGET active sit/stand support! The active sit/stand support is more than just comfort in sitting. It keeps your body in constant motion when seated, strengthens muscles, and promotes a naturally healthy posture.

Desks and chairs come hand in hand so level up your setup game with the HUVUDSPELARE gaming desk! The gamer of the house will be delighted by this well-designed desk as it is made for performance and comfort, offers stability, has cable management, and a hook for your headphones. What more can you ask for?

If there are no gamers at home, consider the HEMNES desk with 2 drawers instead! Discover its enduring charm as it’s crafted from solid wood (meaning it’s highly durable) and has a compact design so you won’t struggle to fit it in any room.

When it comes to storage products, IKEA will never run out of options for you to choose from! The ALEX Storage unit is a clean-looking storage unit which makes it a piece of cake to mix with other styles, either underneath a desk or standing alone.

Never fight with your travel buddies over who gets dibs on charging devices as the SMÄHAGEL 3-port USB charger allows for up to three devices to be charged at the same time! That means everyone can quickly get their devices juiced up without needing to bring separate chargers. The charger is also small and lightweight meaning it’ll hardly take up space in your bags.

It can be intimidating to choose a suitable backpack for travel with so many backpacks in the market. So this is where the STARTTID backpack comes in to make the choice for you! Perfectly sized and water-repellent, the backpack has a separate compartment that can hold a 14” computer for those working on the go and two other separate compartments that provide quick access to your things.

Again, looking for the perfect cabin bag for you can be almost impossible with how many there are out there but IKEA has one that’ll meet your every need. For fuss-free travel, look no further than the VÄRLDENS cabin bag on wheels. It’s practical with durable wheels, a smart telescopic handle, and a soft carrying handle which works great for both commuting and long trips.
