When I think of Ikea, I think of modern, clean lines and minimalist. But there’s definitely a farmhouse vibe at Ikea if you look at the right things.
If I were ever going to go Farmhouse at my house, I would do it with Ikea purchases. I know that even if they have the farmhouse look, they will also still have that minimal feel, so I wouldn’t ever feel like I was in prairie home from 1850.
Not that there’s anything wrong with a prairie home from 1850. That I know of. It does sound kind of lonely and sparse when I think about it.
But I digress. What was I even talking about?
Oh, modern farmhouse style from Ikea.
13 Ikea Farmhouse Furniture Finds for Your Modern Farmhouse
I’m going to try to keep this list organized for you. So I’m going to start in the kitchen and dining areas and wend my way through the rest of the house.
Sound like a plan? Ok, let’s go.
Ikea Farmhouse Kitchen and Dining
Butcher Block Island
I don’t think you can get much more farmhouse than a handsome butcher block island with white cabinets.
It’s simple and clean and perfect for chopping the vegetables you picked from your kitchen garden.
Or even if you bought the veggies from the farmers stand. Or the grocery store. It’s fine. You don’t have to have a farm to have Farmhouse style.
Something about this says Pie Cupboard to me.
I don’t really know if that is a thing. I feel like I read it in some book at some point. Maybe Tom Sawyer. Did Tom’s aunt have a cupboard she kept pies in?
Either way, this is a definitely farmhouse, country style. Mostly white with some wood tones to keep it from being too modern or traditional.
The Raskog Utility Cart
The Raskog utility cart doesn’t really have a particular style all on it’s own. I guess you could call it utilitarian.
But once you start filling it up with stuff, it starts to have some personality.
Here it’s filled abundantly with canned items you’d usually find in the pantry. Canning definitely says farmhouse to me.
Handsome Farmhouse Table
This dining table could cross over to almost any style of home and it would fit easily into a farmhouse home.
The black base makes it a little more special and totally worthy of the dining room.
I’m a big fan of those chairs, too. I see many holiday ham dinners eaten off that table.
If you’ve got the farmhouse style island, you’re going to want some stools to sit at.
These one’s are perfect. Pretty crisp white and that X in the back is distinctly farmhouse.
Throw a cushion on the seat and you are good to go.
Ikea Farmhouse Furniture for Your Living Areas
Pretty Plaid Sofa
Ok, plaid is so ridiculously cozy to me. I love this couch. I need a new couch and I am extremely tempted to just get this one. It’s a great color and you would hardly notice the dogs wet footprints on it.
The shape also is very Farmhouse to me. It’s not too fussy but the plaid makes it a little more dressed up.
I just remembered I already have a plaid chair in the room I need a sofa for, so this wouldn’t work. Don’t do plaid on plaid, people, ok?
Crisp White Sofa
If you want to stick with the crisp white Farmhouse feel, then this is the sofa that you want to get.
Yes, there is the Ektorp which is also super Farmhouse-y. But Farlov to me screams Farmhouse while being just a teeny tiny bit more modern than Ektorp.
Ektorp is your grandmothers farmhouse sofa. Farlov is yours. (Spoken by someone who owns an Ektorp and isn’t a grandmother, so take that for what it is worth).
The Best Chair Ikea Ever Made
I’m obsessed with this chair. I am most definitely getting two for my living room.
I’ve sat in them. They are comfortable. They come in a variety of colors and patterns.
To be honest, I don’t know if this is considered farmhouse style, but it is definitely STYLE. With a capital STYLE.
Just chuck a plaid pillow on it if you think it isn’t farmhouse-y enough, ok? This chair is everything.
(If you’re wondering what is the 2nd best chair Ikea ever made, I think it’s this chair for the bathroom.)
Chicken Wire Console Table
Ok, it’s not chicken wire, but it kind of looks like it a little, doesn’t it?
I love the industrial look of this console table and I really love it up against that gorgeous white brick wall.
Some farmhouse decor would make this even more suitable for your Farmhouse.
Ikea Farmhouse Furniture for the Bedroom
White “Brass” Bed
Ok, nothing says farmhouse style like an brass bed. Especially a brass bed that’s been painted white.
I don’t think this pretty white bed is actually made of brass, but it is metal and it does have some brass embellishments.. To me this is a classic farmhouse piece that’s ripped right off the screen of a movie about farms. Or a tv show.
I have always wanted a brass bed, but I have also always been worried about children smashing their heads against the metal in a freak bed jumping accident. They are nearly grown now though, so maybe it’s time for a brass bed for me.
My Favorite Farmhouse Bed
I adore this bed from Ikea. To me it totally fits the Farmhouse aesthetic because of the pale wood and the minimal, form over function design.
It’s a perfect fit for a modern farmhouse. Not big and clunky. But warm because it’s wood. The write bed linens and this is a lovely farmhouse bed.
You can’t mess up if you go with this white Hemnes dresser with black knobs.
It’s a classic and will fit almost any style, but it’s most definitely leaning toward farmhouse or traditional.
You get bonus farmhouse points if you use that wrought iron-like mirror on top of it, too. That’s definitely farmhouse.
A Cozy Chaise for Reading
I have to have a cozy spot to curl up with a book in my bedroom.
Somewhere other than the bed.
This chaise is perfect for that and it is definitely perfect for a farmhouse home. Those curved arms and the slip covered look are perfect.
Now that you know Ikea is so much more than minimal Scandinavian furniture, are you ready to rush out and grab some Farmhouse style for your home?
If you want to start small with the farmhouse vibe, you can always grab some farmhouse decor first and see if it fits with your home.
Then just rent a flat bed to bring home all the rest of this stuff, ok?
