I was in Stockholm last week to preview the upcoming IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection and meet the designers. The new Stockholm collection counts 47 new items, so there is something for everyone from sofas, coffee tables, vases, pillows, rugs and lamps. I’ve picked out my favourites to share with you.
The collection will arrive in stores in April. It was inspired by the Scandinavian nature and light in the Nordic countries which you can see in the blue hues and light wood.
The Stockholm collection is IKEA’s way of introducing high quality items. A new Stockholm collection arrives every 2-3 years. Some pieces will be taken out of production and others – the more popular ones – go on to become part of the regular assortment.
A velvet sofa for the whole family
The biggest scoop in the new collection is in my opinion the big comfy velvet sofa. The blue one in particular is my favourite, and it comes in grey and red too. Velvet is very happening right now, and sofas in this material can be quite costly. You gotta trust IKEA to introduce a budget friendly version (thank you, IKEA).
A dreamy chair & a beautiful cabinet
My very favourite piece from the collection is a new cabinet made in rattan with brass handles. It’s lovely! I am considering getting one for my home.
The collection also includes a beautiful wicker chair made in rattan – and here’s a nice twist; it’s got velvet cushions! That’s such a great detail, I think. The velvet makes it look much more exclusive. The cushions come in both grey and white.
Accessories and coffee tables in wood and rattan
In the collection you will also find coffee tables in light wood and rattan, big wooden trays and lovely pillows with water-colour patterns to mimic the Nordic oceans. Last but not least there’s a nice dark blue rug in the collection too, that caught my eye.
What do you think? Will any of these go on your wish list?
