Like many young adults branching out on their own, my first big girl apartment while living abroad was heavily furnished with inexpensive items from Sweden’s biggest export - Ikea. I still remember it being one of the first stops I made after picking up the keys to my tiny French apartment, and the long trip to the next town over so that I could stock up on their affordable home goods.
I look back fondly at that time in my life, but now that I’m approaching 30, it feels as though it’s finally time to put my Ikea days behind me. Though their prices are certainly enticing, there are many other creative and, let’s face it, higher quality brands out there when it comes to decorating a home.
Now that many of us are spending more time at home, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your surroundings. The bedroom is a great place to start, especially since we spend roughly a third of our lives in bed. That’s why we’ve gathered 8 brands to shop if you too feel like it’s time to break up with Ikea in favour of something a little more luxurious.
