There are beautiful things from IKEA in almost every home. Everyone buys them, from students who save on dishes to elderly couples who move to the country. Many things from the "Swedish furniture" are so recognizable that they have become a kind of hallmark of IKEA. WFC has compiled for you the top 10 most popular products of this brand, and not only because the chain is leaving Russia forever. Starting July 1st, IKEA is having a farewell sale on Poeng chairs, Billy cabinets, and Ribba photo frames.
1. LACK coffee table
This table is almost 43 years old and has been sold in IKEA since 1979 and is considered one of the ten best-selling products. Its two main functions are simplicity and lightness: the table fits easily into any interior, it is easy to move around the apartment.
2. Decorative lantern ROTERA
Another iconic design item that has been sold in IKEA for many years and it does not lose its relevance. This candle lantern can be found practically in every cottage or cozy kitchen.
3. MARIUS stools
Previously, they were made from wood, but now they are made from recycled plastic. MARIUS stools were designed by Scandinavian designer Ola Wihlborg, who received an Ikea scholarship and a Red Dot Design Award. The stools are very functional and cheap, which made them a hit for years to come.
4. Champagne glasses SALLSKAPLIG
These glasses appeared in IKEA relatively recently, but have already managed to light up in all kinds of shows and films. Stylish, roomy and very memorable. Made of clear glass, they are reminiscent of crystal from the Great Gatsby era.
5. Shark BLAHAJ
This toy appeared in the IKEA assortment in 2017 and immediately became a meme. The Internet is flooded with funny photos in which the shark is sleeping, drinking wine or sitting thoughtfully on a bench. Bloggers have made BLAHAJ a truly iconic character, although she was originally conceived as a pillow.
6. Lamp RAMSELE
Another very favorite IKEA product is the RAMSELE transformer lamp, the shape and brightness of which are adjustable with a cord. Designer David Wahl made the lamp so shaped that it leaves fancy shadows on the walls of the apartment. It is for this unusual function that the lamp has come to the taste of millions of customers around the world.
7. IKEA man GESTALTA
The popularity of this movable sculpture cannot be explained even by IKEA analysts. However, the GESTALTA figurine has been the most purchased and recognizable among the entire range of the chain for many years.

Today, many companies produce such jars for spices, but IKEA designers came up with them. They are roomy, compact and very comfortable. Are you sure you don't have it?

Created by renowned Japanese designer Noboru Nakamura, this chair recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. Over this long period of time, buyers have favored the durable and stylish POANG, which has made the chair one of IKEA's most recognizable products.
10. Stool BEKVAM
A birch stool-ladder has long become not only an indispensable assistant for those who find it difficult to reach the upper shelves, but also a stylish piece of furniture. Designer Nike Karlsson designed the stool to be easy to carry and completely stable. The result is another masterpiece of furniture design.
12. HUVUDROLL meatballs
This hit IKEA created unexpectedly, just trying to feed the visitors of their stores. However, HUVUDROLL meatballs turned out so tasty and satisfying that many people started visiting IKEA solely for them.
12. Ribba Photo Frames
These stylish frames are another reason for IKEA to be proud. They have long broken all sales records and continue to be in demand. Simple frames of classic design in the interior look expensive and bright, but they cost very little. For this they are loved.
