IKEA has revealed what could quite possibly be its best new collection yet, with a range of furniture, decor and accessories coming to stores in April 2021.
The ‘spirit of light’ underpins each item in the Swedish furniture giant’s new drop, and carries through all rooms, from the living room to the backyard.
“Inspired by outdoor activities and made from durable materials from more sustainable sources, you’re bound to find something here that will not only help you grab the moment and go, but also make life a little more comfortable and cosy – and have you waking up refreshed and ready to enjoy the day,” IKEA says in a press release.
The April collection also brings the launch of the long-anticipated IKEA Art Event 2021 — a 10-piece limited collection that explores the intersection of art and function, created in collaboration with global artists.
There are wall decoration lighting pieces by Sabine Marcelis, a wall clock by Daniel Arsham, a table lamp and Allen key-inspired torch by Gelchop, a vase and throw by Stefan Marx, and wall decorations by Humans since 1982. The art collection will arrive in IKEA Australia stores and online on April 12.
In April, IKEA is also launching a three-part podcast series called Happy At Home, to equip you with expert decluttering skills while simultaneously teaching you a little Swedish. In each episode, you’ll learn to follow the step by step micro-tidy guides that cover tips on how to organise your bathroom, pantry and children’s toys.
But back to the April drop, because it’s that good we want to show you more. Here are our favourite new pieces coming to IKEA next month.
TVINGSTRUP Rug, $149
Handwoven in India by skilled artisans, no two TVINGSTRUP rugs are the same. The geometric design showcases a bright and organic colour palette of rich earthy browns, terracotta and a pale blue. It’s made from 100% wool to be both warm and durable, not to mention sustainable.
BORGEBY Coffee Table, $149
Made from Birch veneer, the Borgeby coffee table is lightweight and ideal for small space living. With rounded edges, young families will find the piece particularly appealing, while the storage underneath and tabletop lip make it just as functional as it is beautiful.
PÅDRAG Vase, $2
This ribbed little vase was designed by former florist Hanna Dalrot to be stunning both by itself or filled with seasonal blooms. The ribbed finish means it catches the light and casts a scattered shadow in any space, making it perfect for the mantlepiece, bedside table or kitchen bench. We’d be quite happy using this as a wine carafe too.
VOXLÖV Chair, $119
Made of bamboo and twisted paper cord, this chair is not just an environmentally friendly choice, but a comfy one too. The chairs look chic on their own, but those after a full dining suite can also pick up the VOXLÖV bamboo table.
FJÄLLMOTT Picnic Blanket, $29
Finally, a picnic blanket with a little padding. Boozy brunch picnics are comfier than ever with this cosy and durable rug made from recycled polyester. The waterproof backing means it can be set up just about anywhere, while adjustable straps help you get where you’re going with hands to spare.
