Ikea’s Newest Innovation Was Made for Small Kitchens

Everyone’s favorite Swedish furniture store introduces a brilliant fold-out shelving unit for small kitchens.


Small apartments don’t have to be an eyesore. Or at least that is what Ikea wants to prove with its new shelving unit, Ivar.

Designed for city-dwellers whose apartments are lacking in the square-footage department, Ivar features a fold-out table in addition to plenty of space for storing dry goods and cookware. And while the table is diminutive, it’s plenty large enough to seat three people for a small dinner gathering. It doesn’t hurt that Ivar can be easily stained to match the kitchen you are buying it for.
