When it comes to small space essentials, IKEA is one of my go-to spots to stock up on everything from compact, double-duty furniture to artful accessories. And the Swedish retailer’s lighting section, in particular, is not to be missed — especially if you’re shopping for a home with minimal square footage. Here, 10 compact picks you shouldn’t miss — all under $65.

1. LAUTERS Table Lamp With LED Bulb

Mid-century modern enthusiasts will fall for this wooden number. It’s the perfect accent for a media stand or bar cart. We love how the cord can be tucked into the lamp base — goodbye, clutter!
