All Ikea Stores Are Not Created Equal

All Ikea Stores Are Not Created Equal

Normally I travel lightly. But this time I'm considering a suitcase I'll actually have to check. I'm not bringing much, but I may bring back a lot. Like a Frosta stool.

The Frosta stool, which I went to buy a few months ago in order to DIY this project has been discontinued. Actually, it turns out it hasn't been discontinued, it's just not carried in the US stores anymore. It turns out that there are a lot of products Ikea doesn't sell in the US. Some of them are no longer sold here and some were never sold here in the first place. Here's what caught my eye among their latest offerings:

Atlant is pop-up drainer so you can drain the water out of a full sink without putting your hand in the water, handy for when the sink is filled with water that's especially dirty or gooey.
Kludd is a noticeboard made of frosted glass. Sleeker than a chalkboard, the glass itself feels right for hacking.
Alang, a simple cylindrical ceiling lamp that would be great option for a rental, just ripe for customizing.
Celeber are oil and vinegar cruets that go with the Celeber series of kitchen storage products.
Tofteyrd is a high gloss coffee table that sits low to the ground and that comes in either white or black.

What products have you noticed at Ikea that aren't sold at your local store?
