As I write this, I'm sitting on a millennial pink claw-foot chair on loan to me from my grandmother, drinking coffee out of a millennial pink mug, with a palo santo stick burning on a millennial pink ceramic dish on my side table. Suffice to say I'm a sucker for millennial pink products, such that nearly two years in to living in my first grown-ass adult apartment, the amount of millennial pink items outnumbers items of literally any other color. (Go ahead, count.) Much of this is thanks to IKEA, the Swedish homegoods store that has singlehandedly transformed what millennial living looks like, thanks to its trendy, low-cost furnishings. Luckily, for those of you who haven't (yet) committed as wholeheartedly to millennial pink everything, there are tons of millennial pink products you can buy at IKEA on the cheap that will seriously up your apartment game.
Haters will try to say that millennial pink is on its way out, in favor of Gen Z yellow or Barbara Kruger red. Sure, we could stand to switch up our ~aesthetic~ from time to time, but true millennials will always come back to our preferred pink — especially since both the above colors actually go well with the defining pink of the 21st century. The point is, when you're outfitting an apartment (or just looking to zhuzh up a room), you have tons of extremely on-trend options. Here are 14 millennial pink IKEA products you probably won't be able to resist buying.

True life: on top of the aforementioned millennial pink objects in my living room, I'm the proud owner of a set of 13 extremely fragile millennial pink martini glasses, also from an elder matriarch, that I'm absolutely terrified to use. At a cool $1.99 a pop, I'd be much more chill about serving drinks in these.
