It may specialise in affordable flat pack furniture for the masses.
But that clearly doesn’t stop Ikea accommodating for society’s upper echelons.
For society bible Tatler has compiled a list of ‘the nine poshest things you can buy in Ikea’.
The list, which appears on the magazine’s website, includes a £195 pouffe, a £40 sheepskin rug and a pair of champagne glasses for £5.95, all available from the Swedish giant.
Tatler writer Luciana Bellini wrote: ‘Ikea – home to tiny meatballs, flat-pack furniture and toffs hunting for a bargain.
‘Whether they’re stocking up on champagne flutes, ordering a new chandelier or buying those furry Skold rugs that Jon Snow wore in Game of Thrones, you’ll find them there at 9am on a Saturday, just like everyone else.
‘So we’ve rounded up the nine poshest things you can pick up in your local Ikea. Well, if it’s good enough for the heir to the Iron Throne…’
The most expensive item on the list is a £225 orange Benarp armchair, followed by a £199 green Strandmon wing chair and a £195 Stockholm pouffe with a black and white cow pattern.
A brown cow-hide rug from Koldby, priced at £180, also features on the list, as well as a £99 Ortofta chandelier, a £45 Moalie wool throw and a £40 brown Skold sheepskin rug.
At the bottom end of the price scale is a £12 Stockholm bowl, a stainless steel decorative bowl in the shape of a snowflake, and two clear glass Konungslig champagne glasses for £5.95.
Ikea’s sales in the UK were £1.72billion last year, an increase of more than nine per cent on the previous financial year.
