Fiddle-fig leaf plants are versatile and work beautifully in all design styles and homes! I have been loving the fiddle-leaf fig plant for the longest time (when I first saw them at an Elle Decor magazine about 6 years ago) but I just couldn't find them everywhere. I have heard that you can get them at Home Depot but sadly, they have none in my area.

Luckily for me, I found one unexpectedly last week while shopping for a few items at Ikea! I believe they are new arrivals. The Ikea I was in was the one in Schaumburg, IL so if you are in the area, grab it as soon as you can. While I was there, there were less than 10 left. Unfortunately, they are not available online. So my lovelies, if you love Fiddle-Leaf Fig tree and have an Ikea in your area, go there ASAP before the news got out!



I am not good with house plants and have a tiny budget for home decor but for $13, I am willing to take that risk! My fiddle-leaf fig plant measures approximately 30", by the way. 

What are you waiting for? Grab them before they are gone! Remember, you hear about this fabulous deal/ news from here first! :)

  11. I am a fig fan also Jessie. This post has some great examples of how a fig plant can beautify and add interest to a room. I love the white living room with the two in the corners as well as the one with the tree branching over the fireplace!

  12. I have been in the market for a fiddle leaf fig tree for awhile. I'm going to go to Ikea today :) However, does the Ikea tree grow to just have the leaves on the top, like the room pictures you posted? Do you need to prune it? Or is the Ikea tree a different variety and have leaves all the way down? Thanks!

    1. The Ikea tree is the same tree as the images you saw above. You will need to prune them so they only have leaves on the top. Hope that helps.

    2. Thanks so much, Jessie! How's your tree doing? Does it take long to grow? I may head to Ikea tomorrow to buy 2 plants to put on either side of my dining room console. Love them :)

      I'm also a new fan of your blog!

    3. You are welcome, Nicole. My tree is still doing okay although I always forget to water it. It has been almost a year since I bought it and it does take a while for it to grow. Not sure if Ikea still carries it but you can check to make sure. Good luck.

      Hope you have fun following my blog!
