Ikea favourite finds | April 2019

19/04/2019

We are big fans of IKEA around here. It’s not for every room in the house, but it certainly has its place – particularly in this region’s transient society, Every now and again, they really hit a home run, particularly in recent years as they’ve taken on more design collaboration projects, and of late they’ve been knocking it out of the park. After a recent trip to our Dubai store, we thought we’d give you a round-up of what really caught our eye and what we think are some of the best items in store this season.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5a / 5b / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

01 Having done a little paint job on the SKADIS pegboard before, we are excited to see this favourite of ours in a new exciting tone.
02 the BEKANT metal storage unit is intended for the office, but we love the idea is using this nifty unit on wheels just about anywhere.
03 The DINERA dinnerware with its simple shapes, muted colours and matt glaze gives a rustic feel to your table setting.
04 Spotted the RÖNNINGE on a recent sourcing trip and we are obsessed to say the least. Available in birch and jade green, this dining chair beauty is bang on-trend with it’s simple and functional style .
05 Ikea’s plant section has our hearts singing. The FEJKA box stem plant is a beaut and requires no maintenance. Show it off in the BOYSENBÄR concrete pot
06 Make your weekend soiree a little sweeter by seating your hungry brood at the gorgeous round oak veneer MÖRBYLÅNGA table. Would look amazing combined with 4 RÖNNINGE chairs.
07 Loving the mood of this dark grey BRYGGJA storage cabinet.
08 The Swedish furniture retailer has entered the audio market for the first time, by launching its very own wireless Bluetooth speakers. The design is simple, featuring minimalist characteristics, with a single control dial and a mesh fabric-covered speaker (available in two colours).  Not surprisingly, the folks at IKEA have considered aesthetics as well as performance.
09 This divine find has such a beautiful shape. It’s a real money saver and a no-fuss masterpiece with an architectural flair.

  • We started work on this shared sibling room just before the summer and after long delays with some of the items we ordered, we finally managed to apply the finishing touches last month. There's a full reveal on the blog. Link in profile.

  • @d3dubai is one of my favourite Dubai districts. I'll be back there this afternoon with @liveloudgirl to talk about building a business in the social media age and our @fronteriors journey thus far. We kick off at 6pm if you around and would like to join us.  #downtowndesign #ddw2019
  • Yesterday was our first day in the new studio.  Given the distinct lack of furniture, we unpacked all the crazy onto the one @andtradition sofa that we have. 😝 Thanks to @marli_smithphotography for capturing this hilarious moment, like the new age working mum that she is - with a baby on her hip. We were just missing our other brand new mummy. New chapter starts here. #studiofronteriors #girlgang
  • Dreamy terrazzo feels at the @nwt.newterracotta exhibit at @downtowndesignd #ddw2019 #terrazzo #downtowndesign
  • Aw, look at these little guys sky-rocketing the cuteness scale in yesterday's nursery installation. And as for that colour (Exhale) from @jotunpaintsarabia 2020 collection, I'm smitten!
  • @marli_smithphotography and I tried to shoot my kitchen makeover today but rain has ended play unexpectedly.... hey ho, you can't get me down though, I'm loving this new space too much!
  • A busy and exciting week lies ahead, peeps! Aside of an installation to complete for a lovely new client, I'm right on the cusp of a super exciting milestone. @liveloudgirl and I are moving into a shared studio space... because since the inception of @fronteriors we're basically married so getting a place together seems like the obvious next step 😂 But seriously though, we're becoming a blended tribe of sorts and we are really excited for this next chapter of creativity, with our respective teams working side by side while we steer the runaway train that is fronteriors. 
The new studio is a dreamy blank canvas of endless artistic possibilities. We've already treated it to some @jotunpaintsarabia magic on the walls, but I suspect that that the evolution of this workspace will be constantly in motion. Stay tuned.

  • Forever discovering treasures in mom's office only to be told they're for someone else's room. She'll tell you that's the story of her life. Wonder where she gets that sense of drama? 🤔 🙎🏼‍♀️ 🐳 @bigstuffed

  • On the blog this morning is a better-late-than-never edition of our popular 'scene & heard' series. It's a look back at some of the team's summer highlights, including dreamy Netherlands coastal vibes and some Dubai gems discovered my Marli and Mila who spent a large chunk of the break locally.
