The IKEA Stockholm 2017 Range is a Celebration of Texture
The IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection is landing in a matter of weeks, decor lovers, and I’m already experiencing fits of joy and rapture over it. Packed with a tonne of new pieces, the collection is split into two distinctly different vibes. A rather bright, colour-clash scenario featuring reds and blues is the first component. Which, if I’m being honest, I’m not that into (and haven’t featured here).
The second vibe, however, is a beautifully subdued, neutral and tactile design adventure I’m almost having kittens over. I’ve blogged before on how beige doesn’t have to be boring (check out that post here), and the IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection further proves my point. Wait until you see all of the dreamy pictures below. You may need a medic.
The IKEA Stockholm 2017 is a Celebration of Texture
So as you can see in the two photos above and the showcase below, the Stockholm collection is all about texture. It’s a carefully curated range in natural and tactile materials. Think ash, rattan, velvet and hand-blown glass; all blending together to create a visually serene, calming aesthetic.
Swedish light and nature were the main inspirations for the new IKEA Stockholm collection, and it’s transferred from inspiration to reality so well. The pieces feel light in weight, but visually light also. They don’t weigh down the room at all, and there’s a great sense of breathability and airiness about them.
The mesh storage cupboard you see above is hands-down my favourite piece from this wonderfully neutral drop, but there are a load more furniture and decor gems in the showcase below if you want to have a scroll through.
A Versatile Base you Can Layer on Top of
What I also find appealing about the Stockholm 2017 collection is that the pieces form a great foundation for any number of style overlays.
On top of the neutral furniture you could easily apply an array of interior design styles. The new Hamptons style would work well with Stockholm range (see what I mean about the new Hamptons here).
Another interior design style that would complement Stockholm is the new Bohemian look that I’ve blogged about before in this post. A classic coastal vibe would also work well here, and you could even introduce some industrial elements to rough up the vibe. It really is such a versatile range, and I can’t get enough of it!
The IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection lands this April. Keep your eye on the IKEA Aus website for more.
