IKEA have done it again and created a collection with an unlikely designer, giving us something very unexpected but also very appealing.
The Spanst collection is made up of 32 pieces created with fashion designer Chris Stamp ( creative director of clothing brand Stampd ) and product designer Maja Ganszyniec. The varied range includes an armchair, shelving units, cushions, waterbottle, skateboard, shoe boxes, LED lights and much more.
With a black, grey and white colour pallete this collection is minimal and well thought out, with practical pieces with a very urban, streetwear edge.
We love how IKEA are mixing it up with clothing and homeware and bringing in designers to showcase their ideas. Launching in May this limited edition collection won’t hang around for long.
IKEA has always been a company to push design ideas and bring fun into our homes. A new collection designed with fashion stylist Bea Akerlund may just be their boldest yet, where a heavy gothic vibe meets Alice in Wonderland.
Omedelbar is a limited edition collection launching in March and is expected to be a hit. The collection consists of vases, accessories, furniture and soft furnishings in bold black, red and gold.
Look out for top hat and boot vases, a crown bowl, lip shaped cushion and a giant pocket watch wall clock.
Monochrome is as popular as ever with high street stores and designers still loving the simplicity, easy coordination and extensive pattern options to create crisp modern interiors.
Whether you go for an even mix of the tones or go stronger on either black or white, it’s an easy colour palette to work with.
As dark interiors are so on trend we love the look of styling heavily black with highlights of white in framing, fabrics and ceramics. Black walls can make a fantastic backdrop for white accessories to really stand out. Keep the look modern with only occasional pattern and stick mainly to plain black or white in accessories and fabrics. For wall decor choose illustrative prints, linear designs, typography or black and white photography. Head to Desenio, Gayle Mansfield or A Room in my House for prints to suit the look.
At the start of next year we will be seeing a lot of cool blues, greens, pearl white and pale grey, with print and pattern taking inspiration from the sea. Bring comfort and serenity into a room with soft accents of colour and lots of soft furnishings like throws, sheepskin and rugs.
A strong black and white pattern on furniture and cushions work perfectly against the blue, whether on a feature wall or furniture. Carefully choose the pieces to carry the bold colour, something like an armchair or bookcase in a living room or perhaps dining chairs in a kitchen. Layer different tones of blue and green bringing depth to your space.
Accessories like vases are a good place to start with some gorgeous pearlized finishes available in stores, in aqua greens and rich indigos. Bring in metalics like copper and zinc to add more interest to a room.
This trend is great for any room and can be adapted to suit the space. Aqua and turquoise can be overwhelming if over used but if used as an accent rather than a base you can create a beautiful modern space.
