iStock_assemblefurnitureIKEA, the affordable Swedish housewares retailer that makes us wander around its floors like lab rats in a maze, is coming out with some pretty noteworthy pieces this spring. Here are some of their newest offerings that we’re most exciting to snatch up for the sunnier season.

ULLGUMP rug (coming soon)  – Polka-dots are hot this spring, and this rug fits the bill. The cream dots on black make this a totally neutral rug that would add a touch of playfulness anywhere you put it.

GULORT cushion cover (coming soon) – We’re loving this bright and whimsical cushion cover featuring two very hipster owls on a fuchsia background. Guaranteed to brighten up any living room, and just perfect for the season.

SKARET bath sheet – Looking for an easy and affordable way to freshen up your bathroom for spring? Well look no further than these awesome bath towels. With a happy teardrop-shaped pattern in aqua, grass green, and gray, this towel just screams spring.

PS 2012 stool – There is nothing happier than adding a pop of yellow to, well, just about anywhere, and this adorable stool is no exception. Possessing a definite Danish mid-century-esque vibe, these stools would be perfect at the kitchen counter or simply as extra seating. The best part? They’re completely stackable, saving you both space and money.

PROMENAD tableware – We are swooning over this new tableware collection. Whimsical, slightly vintage, and inexpensive, these PROMENAD dishes are a fun and easy way to refresh your dining table. Blue patterns of hot air balloons and birds on a stark white background also make these plates perfect for a spring picnic.

ALMSTA chairs – Always lusted after woven French bistro chairs but couldn’t bear the price tag? Well, fret no more. IKEA has come up with their own (much less expensive) version. Available in both a light natural tone, and in black, we can see these chairs flying off the shelves.– Esther Carlstone
