IKEA has a knack for creating affordable lighting that's so good, all of a sudden, you look around, and it's everywhere. Case in point: That $70 rattan pendant that was on everyone's Instagram feed from 2018-2019. IKEA's just released a new lighting line, and we have a hunch that it's about to be everywhere. The Simrishamn series finds its roots in the '60s and '70s, with curved, chrome-inspired arms and soft globe bulbs.

We've certainly seen similar designs at other big-name retailers, but the fact that the style has now reached IKEA — one of the world's most accessible retailers — means you'll probably start spotting these fixtures in everything from restaurant design to who knows, your remodeled kitchen? Read on for a look at the entire collection ...
