As you will know I love all things vintage and salvage so what on earth would I be doing in Ikea I hear you ask? Well other than treating myself to a cinnamon bun and coffee ( only 99p ..rude not to!), I think that Ikea has some real gems. Combining some of their pieces with other older pieces in your home can help you create a home with style, and individuality … for not much money.
The new catalogue has been out for a while and I know I have been slightly brainwashed with my love of all things Scandinavian but there really are some fab things. Lots of things which look like they cost lots but are actually very reasonable. Ikea seems to have a great team of designers working for them so don’t be a flatpack snob! So I thought i would summarise my top pics for you all.
1)Fabrikor – a new style glass cabinet Its only £150.00 but I think looks much more and comes in an array of colours . This would look perfect filled with china as a display cabinet in a kitchen but with its retro industrial feel i think it would look great in a bathroom too.
2) The STOCKHOLM 3 seater sofa in sandbacka green is a style sensation.The colour of this sofa is amazing, it has a real vintage feel to it, and those clever Scandinavians have made it so that all the covers can be taken off and dry cleaned. You don’t often find something that looks so chic yet is so practical too.
Also a bit of fun is the IKEA hackers website
