IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection

Ikea is about to launch the 2017 Stockholm collection and believe me when I say you want to see this. There are over 40 new items in the recurrent Stockholm series, including sofas, coffee tables, vases, pillows, rugs and lamps, but there are a few pieces in particular that have caught my eye.

Let’s start with this rattan cabinet designed by Nike Karlsson, shall we? Is it just me, or is this also one of the hottest pieces you’ve ever seen coming out of IKEA? It’s made from rattan and pine and has gorgeous brass hardware detail. I absolutely love it.

Next on the favourite list, and also designed by Nike Karlsson, is a rather fabulous rattan armchair. It’s good to know that the cushions it’s paired with are available in gray velvet or white cotton, offering some real flexibility to the look you can achieve with these earthy pieces.

Then there’s this rattan coffee table, which I personally would also use as a bench at the end of a bed or in a hallway. In fact I’m already envisaging a variety of functions for this beauty and can’t wait to style one somewhere.

The big, bold newcomer in this collection is a large comfy sofa that is available in three velvet fabric options – grey, navy and a rich orange. There is also an ottoman available in the three fabrics. You’ve no doubt noticed that velvet is making a big comeback in interiors and IKEA have, of course, not missed the mark here.

From the brief look I’ve had at this sofa, it appears to have an extraordinary amount of back cushions – possibly too many. I realise that coming from someone who doesn’t shy away from a cushion, this is probably a big statement, but let’s see. I’ll hold off any judement until I’ve actually seen it in the flesh, or should I say the velvet.

The new Stockholm collection is excited in UAE stores on 8 April. Race you there.

    • These RÖNNINGE chairs are new at @ikeauae and we're wild about their elegant simplicity. In fact, therevare a few new items that have caught our eye there recently so we've rounded up some favourites on houseofhawkes.com. link in bio. #ikea #favourites
    • Can we call it a day yet? #home #evening #winetime
    • It started with a conversation over lunch that went something like this: 'so these custom doors and tops that we're forever making for clients, we should probably just make more and sell them because everyone always asks where we got them'... hmm, 'seems like a perfectly reasonable plan for two people already overwhelmed by their workload. Yalla, let's do it!' And then there was the #billyhack that accelerated our @fronteriors launch plans. Read all about my exciting new business venture with @liveloudgirl on the blog. Link in profile.
    • Walking our the door with a long to do list ahead of me, including a stop to pick up Ethan's new passport that I applied for early September 2018. Better late than never, eh!? In case you missed the news about my design collaboration with @helmiibeds there's a post on the blog with all the details - and it's available to shop online if you're in the market for an awesome new bed with a handy removable cover! 📷 by @marli_smithphotography #helmiiXhouseofhawkes #bedslipcover #removablebedcover #bedroomstyling #bedroomdecor #houseofhawkes
    • The kids and I escaped for RAK to join friends for an overnight getaway. Safe to say the smalls have had a blast!

    • I'm taling the kids on an overnight mini vacay to Ras Al Khaimah today, although they've talked it up to something substantially more glamorous... and now it's raining. Really, weather?! Anyhoo, how cute is this room? Our refreshed website is live and a tour of this space will be on there soon. But first, the mini-break. 📷 by @marli_smithphotography

    • Bed. That's where the party's at for me tonight. I can feel a cold coming at me like a freight train so I'm dosing myself and catching some early zzz's. This room though, and that afternoon light, from our styling sesh at casa @whitemossdecor is giving me good vibes. Night night insta family.
