Designed with a conscious and mindful lifestyle in mind, IKEA’s new February drop is comprised of 33 new items, each of which work by themselves or in conjunction with complementary pieces to bring elements of nature into your space.
Botanical green, and earthy hues found in natural landscapes, are a running theme throughout the February collection, which is available in stores and online from February 1, 2020.
“This launch is about creating peace of mind in the home by having a meaningful relationship with the objects we surround ourselves with,” IKEA says in a press release.
“We take extra care of our belongings, ourselves, and nature, knowing that we are all connected.”
And in line with IKEA’s mission to achieve a circular economy by 2030, the materials used in the drop make the most of sustainable technologies.
Soft furnishings are made from 100% cotton from more sustainable sources, while some fabrics will be spliced with viscose — a renewable cellulose-based material from wood.
Renewable and fast-growing bamboo replaces traditional woods where possible, and lampshades and baskets are woven from six different types of plant fibres that include bamboo, rattan, seagrass, banana fibre, poplar and jute.
What’s more, the baskets and pendant light shades are handwoven by skilled craftspeople, employing artisans and ensuring a sense of individuality in the items.
Sara Ottosson, who has worked with natural fibres at IKEA for more than ten years, says the varying colours makes the material more interesting. “They come alive. There’s beauty in the irregularity and that someone has spent time to structure and create unique everyday objects of the materials.”
On top of the February drop, IKEA is also launching a limited-edition cleaning and organisational collection called Borstad, designed to make your life at home easier and more aesthetic with storage solutions and practical pieces to improve functionality.
