Top picks for the IKEA part sale // GIVEAWAY

Ikea part sale

Summer has well and truly arrived here in the UAE. The sudden spike in temperature has had me huffing and puffing my way through the days as I cart my little tribe around on the school run and beyond. This time of year always brings about a rather abrupt confrontation with the inevitable – we’ll be spending large portions of the next few months indoors. And what better place to do that than at Dubai’s world-renowned mega-malls. One might think that the IKEA part sale is perfectly timed!

Have you seen the sale? There are so many fabulous bargains up for grabs. I’ve been spending an unhealthy amount of time on their website lately, sourcing items for a few projects, and I have spotted some fabulous bargains. There may actually have been an audible ‘hell yes’ from me when I noticed that one of my favourite sofas was included in the sale. I felt inspired to deliver a little dose of living room inspiration – so here’s a contemporary monochrome mood board featuring some of my top sale picks.

Ikea part sale


The normal cost of achieving this contemporary look would be around AED 7,200 but with so many of the featured items on sale, you can grab it all for approximately AED 5,300 – that’s a savings of AED 1,800… which is a lot of manicures and pedicures! The STOCKHOLM sofa, which is available in a variety of colours, is one of my favourite IKEA pieces and not one to be missed when on sale.

And guess what, peeps? I have a AED 500 IKEA gift voucher to give away to one lucky reader. To enter, leave a comment and share this post on Facebook, using the button below. Giveaway Rules: Open to UAE residents. Entrants must register their email address when using the comment section. Giveaway ends on 2 June. The winner will be randomly selected and informed via email. Best of luck!

Many thanks to our friends at IKEA for the giveaway.

Kathryn Hawkes

  • Faye 29/05/2016 at 9:05 PM

    Would love to win this! We’re having a new baby in July and his nursery only has a grey rug in it so far, as our air conditioning keeps breaking down! A AED500 voucher would go a long way in the part sale to put some much needed furniture into the new one’s room. Love the monochrome mood board!

  • Lauren De Villiers 29/05/2016 at 4:49 PM

    Would love to win this voucher – some of the items in this look would really help to add to and freshen up our living room.

    • We've got a full house this weekend with my niece and nephew here and all 4 kids are coughing and congested 😔 poor things.  We've had to pass on our usual Saturday activities with in favour of a couch day. I caught little miss camera shy, aka Ava-licious, chilling hard with Peter Rabbit 🐰

    • New to the portfolio: a piano room. Take a tour of this moody and discerning space on image by @marli_smithphotography #houseofhawkes #pianoroom #yamahapiano #wallpaper #pianoman
    • I've put in an order for a new slip cover for my #helmiiXhouseofhawkes bed. It's for my guestroom makeover and I've opted for the off-white. I should have it by next week and I'll be sure to show you how quick and easy the change is! #bedslipcover guestroom #makeover #easypeasy
    • When @style____k (bless her for her patience) was trying to get a shot of us at the @fronteriors product shoot, but we were knee deep in hardware discussions. Again. 
Also, could you die for the plywood fronts and top for BESTA? And the cane doors for BILLY!!?? 😁😜🤭

    • Today was a biggie for @liveloudgirl and I. That little idea about making custom fronts, tops and accessories for IKEA frames became a big reality as we embarked on our inaugural shoot for the @fronteriors website with the first few items fresh off the production line. The full collection isn't yet ready but we've decided that rather than waiting for everything to be finsihed before we go live, we're going to make items available to purchase as and when they are ready. A decision based largely on our excitement induced impatience, but also because of the 'are we there yet' questions we are fielding on a daily basis. And we get it. At this point, theres already a great selection of options coming online, including the hotly anticipated cane doors for the BILLY bookcase. We're so excited to bring this concept to the local market! Keep on eye out for the announcement of our website going live! 
Big thanks to everyone who assisted us in pulling today together: @nordichomeworx for the dreamy flooring, @8thstreetstudios for the studio space, @style____k for getting me out of my ripped jeans, @marli_smithphotography for being behind the lens, @jleeksma for video  magic, @jotunpaintsarabia for always having our back... and our walls! @thebowerycompany for accessories, for amazing organisation 
#ittakesavillage #almostthere #fronteriors
    • Over at @fronteriors some of our first units are almost off the production line and we're prepping to shoot images for the website every soon. Epic excitement here as It's. All. Happening!

I'm so thrilled to be embarking on this big adventure with such a fabulous partner in design endeavours - @liveloudgirl ... afterall, someone's gotta look good around here! #funtimes #fronts #frontsquad #fronteriors #herewego
