OK, so it is early in January but I felt like spring today with the sun shining on my face and no jacket while jumping over the (mud) puddles. Puts me in the mood for inspiration from the sneak peak of products from IKEA Canada – I will be heading out to pick up the PROMENAD dish ware to combine with my newly inherited milk glass collection ASAP!
“There’s a change in the are that can only mean one thing – a hot round of handpicked, new products from IKEA is here! Coming this February are a mix of products with styles that draw from traditional, contemporary and a little bit of country – Swedish country, that is.
New Swedish country style textile like AKERKULLA, AKERFRAKE, AKERTISTEL and more bring the calm light and simple touch of Swedish folklore to quilt covers, rugs, cushions, curtains and more. Look for lots of red, ochre, green, grey and white in these floral and striped patterns.
Summoning a strong sense of tradition with a fresh take are pieces like the handmade, detail-rich ALMSTA rattan chair; and playful blue and white porcelain; ROMENAD dinnerware.
There’s plenty of contemporary news too from the graphic patterns of KVITTRA storage boxes and bold limited edition colours of BILLY bookcases to the modern angle and cut-outs in SELJE bedside table.”
