IKEA is a great go-to store to find furniture, especially if you are on a budget. The Scandi brand knows good design and of course it keeps us coming back.

We spotted this cute armchair in store and think it’s prefect for an additional seat in a living room or bedroom. It’s compact and simple shape means it’s great for small rooms, and the padded quilted sides brings some interest to the design.

With the Winter nights upon us, it’s now the time of year to focus on lights in the home. Create cosy spaces for the evening and bright work spaces throughout the day. A big trend this year has has been rattan and woven lampshades and this is not going away through into 2019.

This style gives a relaxed feel to a room and will work with most decor. The natural fibres and woven form soften a space and allow for any colour backdrop.

Wood accents are also big for next year, so this is a great way of introducing this through lighting.
