The Classic IKEA Staple an NYC Interior Designer Uses in Every Home

It's no secret that we love finding stylish steals at IKEA, however culling through the Swedish retailer's 12,000 plus product list for true gems can be a daunting task. Enter Tali Roth, one of our favourite interior designers who just so happens to have an affinity for a particularly stylish product from the budget-friendly home goods giant. Starting at just $105, the customisable BESTÅ shelf unit is a furnishing the designer has used in nearly every home she's designed, including her former chic-to-death New York apartment and her current (and recently revamped) modern NYC loft.

Why the BESTÅ? According to Roth, the shelving unit is ideal for tying together open-space floor plans and making a space feel welcoming and free-flowing. "I love the BESTÅ as a product when I need more than one piece to connect together," she tells MyDomaine. "I think the BESTÅ units even have the ability to look like millwork if you use them wisely—and they provide really good storage!" However, the key to making this IKEA find look really high-end, according to Roth, is in the styling. "You need art and accessories to make it blend into the environment better," she adds.

Ahead, the NYC-based interior designer shows us exactly how to style the classic IKEA staple she uses in every home. Keep scrolling to shop the storage unit she swears by—and all the chic home accessories she uses to make it look way more expensive than it actually is.
