IKEA Spokesperson Spotlight - Stella Monteiro

News   •   Feb 07, 2019 11:28 GMT


My name is Stella, and I'm the Storage Sales Leader for IKEA UK and Ireland. I've worked at IKEA for 22 years and I still can’t get enough of the meatballs!

My favourite IKEA products are continuously changing, but right now I’m loving the SKÅDIS collection. The SKÅDIS pegboard works as a brilliant way to organise any room in the home thanks to its customisable storage add-ons, guaranteed to make arranging your belongings more enjoyable. I personally use it in my kitchen to hang up our busy schedules, and show off pictures of my family.

IKEA also has some fantastic storage solutions for the busiest areas in the home. The VILTO shelving unit for example, is the perfect addition to your bathroom. Not only does it have a distinctive and natural look, but the open shelves are great for accessing toiletries and everyday essentials. When it comes to the kitchen, IKEA’s 365+ food containers are a staple product for those looking for smaller storage solutions. Made from glass and bamboo, the containers are environmentally friendly and come in a variety of sizes, making cupboard organisation a breeze.

We’ve seen huge changes in the versatility and adaptability of storage over the years, with products such as IKEA’s PAX wardrobes allowing customers to completely customise their space. This is something I believe will continue into the future, as a result of shifts in how people are living. For example, many of us are renting our homes, so require more functional ways to organise our belongings. IKEA’s PLATSA family of modular storage is the ideal solution if you’re looking for a flexible, completely unique unit that can optimise your living space.

Please do let me know if you'd like any tips on storage or expert commentary to support what you’re working on, as I'd be happy to help. To explore more new wonders visit
