Montessori Ikea products in 2021

Montessori favourites at IKEA 2021

Ikea is well-known for being a favourite shop to source Montessori friendly furniture and products. 

They update their catalogue at least once a year. 

Here are my 21 picks for a Montessori home:

Discover the Montessori box

Are you looking for Montessori activities for your child, but you don't have time to make three part cards and search for printables?

Are you unsure what activities are appropriate?
How best to present them to your child?

The Montessori Family Box is a monthly subscription box for children aged 3 to 6, delivering Montessori activities directly to your door.

No more searching, printing and laminating!


  1.  Bergig: how verstatile is this book display with storage? One front facing book display shelf, one regular shelf and one big drawer. 
  2.  Baggebo 3 tiers shelving unit: this is a metal shelving unit so very easy to assemble and cheap as only £15.
  3.  Chair
  4.  Baggebo small shelf: it's a small unit, only 50x30x80 cm so it would be perfect for a toddler shelf or a small space. In the same collection, the tv bench could be used as a cheap shelving unit.
  5.  Baggebo blue shelf: only 2 shelves but look at that turquoise colour!
  6.  Perjohan bench: I love multi-use furniture. This one is a bench with storage. It could be perfect for the hallway with shoes and accessories stored underneath the bench. In the same collection, they have a stool with storage. 
  7.  Poang chair: they have new covers for this chair. A cat one, a dinosaur one, and a neutral beige one. I've been waiting to replace our cover for a while so this is perfect!

Storage and toys

8. Mala art storage

9. Mala roll holder

10. Mala cardboard houses

11. Ovning Desk organiser

12. Bucket: although, it's not specifically child's size, the lid is a clever addition and could be a useful way to prepare a washing up activity. 

13. Rosenhatta Tray: it's a square one, 33x33cm.

14. Pjatteryd Ocean pictures:

15. Child's apron: with more sustainable material and cheap!

16. Hovlig tent: a play tent for a cosy corner. 

17. Hostkvall tray: a new rectangular small tray. They have a new pattern every year. Not sure I like this autumnal pattern. 

18. Folding tray: I've seen this tray being used as a small work table by @montessori_boo on Instagram. I thought it was good idea when you are short on space.

19. Duktig tea set: a classic with new colours. They also have the cups and saucers and the bowls and plates.

20. Upplivad wooden spoon: cute design that may encourage children to help in the kitchen. 

21. Lego storage system: I may buy these new storage boxes and see if that helps my Lego fan to keep them tidy. I think coupled with a bag that transforms into a mat, we might be on a winning combination. 

Bonus item!

I forgot to add this one on my pictures!

Hangig label holders with pictures: The labels can be hang on a drawer of maximum 16mm tickness. You can insert any picture in the holder or use the ones provided.
