home: favourite thing [ Ikea x Hay ]

We have been waiting a long time for this collaboration. And if you don’t know about it, here is the lowdown.

Launching in October Swedish giant Ikea has joined forces with Danish brand Hay to create the new Ypperlig collection. Featuring furniture, vases, throws and accessories the Ypperlig collection has been designed to ‘challenge people’s perception of Ikea quality and design’

New redesign of Ikea Frakta bag

Hay has also taken on the challenge of redesigning the iconic blue & yellow Frakta bag. The size & shape has remained, with new colours including the green & white version pictured. Hay wanted to turn the bag into a ‘design object’ that customers appreciate.

We love the simplicity and muted colours of the collection, with strong design that will fit into any room. As Ikea says ‘a contemporary yet ageless collection’

Quirky and welcoming but still in contemporary grey with a lovely detail of typography on it – this great door mat from Argos is a super update for a hallway and it’s only £7.99 or on special offer of two for £15. Great to give as a gift! 

Typography is big this year in interiors trends and the italic ‘hello’ is popping up everywhere across highstreet stores – on wall or window decals, prints, cushions and kitchenalia!

Looking for a different take on the hanging grid frame? We have found it. Rather than the usual design, this hanging frame is made up of two poles connected to a simple house shape, taking inspiration from architecture.

Available from The Den & Now it’s made from recycled paper and metal and has so many uses. Perfect for hanging notes in the kitchen or office, or use it to display photos in a living room or bedroom.

We are definitely added this to our shopping list.
