Transform Your Home Office Into a Gaming Room With IKEA’s Latest Range

Transform Your Home Office Into a Gaming Room With IKEA’s Latest Range

If the pandemic cultivated a rise in two things it’s working from home and gaming. Now wouldn’t it be great if you could combine those two things and create a great home office that’s also equipped for gaming? That’s what IKEA is banking on with its new furniture range.

Back in 2021, IKEA partnered with Republic of Gamers (ROG) to develop a new gaming range of home furniture and accessories. The lineup was a hit in many markets, including Australia, and IKEA has since decided to expand its gaming range with the new BRÄNNBOLL collection, that will arrive in stores in September 2024.

If you’re thinking this is the perfect time to upgrade your desk for gaming or to create a new space for gaming entirely, IKEA has you covered. Let’s take a look at what’s on offer.

What’s included in IKEA’s new gaming furniture range?

The BRÄNNBOLL gaming range includes 18 new products, with everything from chairs, cabinets and accessories to hold your accessories.

While the previous lineup of gaming furniture was primarily aimed at PC gamers, the BRÄNNBOLL selection is designed for “everywhere in the home”.

One of the main pieces that caught our eye is a foldout chair that can switch from being a typical armchair to an extended lounge seat if you want to stretch out your legs. The collection also brings back the controversial inflatable chair and includes a gaming station that provides a foldable tabletop and integrated PC tower storage that can be easily folded away into a storage cupboard.

Check out some of the images below to see the BRÄNNBOLL collection in action:
