Designer Anna Salander:

“Early every spring my grandmother planted

seeds. Behind her currant shrub I remember

there grew both pumpkins, cucumbers and pineapples.

I’m not sure I remember correctly, because

it seems a bit odd that pineapples could

be growing in my grandmother’s garden. But it’s

a strong memory in any case, and when I started

work with GUNVOR fabric I imagined I was back

in my childhood. That made it feel quite natural

to design a pattern with a sliced pineapple - and

pumpkins and seeds in perfect rows.”

A natural

challenge

The challenge for designers Charlotte Skak

and Camilla Diedrich: create a contemporary

collection of white textiles reflecting nature and

transformation, but still distinctive enough to

stand out on its own. Their solution: carefully

selected materials like wool, silk and polyester in

combination with overlapping, tactile details as

pleats and jacquards. We’re very proud of what

they achieved. And we have a slight feeling that

Mother Nature is too.

Designer Charlotte Skak:

“I live at the east coast of Denmark. It was here, at

the shores of Snekkersten, that I found inspiration

when designing my part of the OFELIA collection.

Nature is shaped slowly and continuously,

and still it’s fragile. Like the waves – so relentless,

yet fleeting. The materials and the design

of the collection have its roots in the Nordic light,

the sand on the beach, the waves, the driftwood

and the plants. In a world that goes faster day

by day, I hope this collection will bring a sense of

thoughtfulness and serenity to your home.

Designer Camilla Diedrich:

New possibilities and change – those were my

goals when designing my part of the OFELIA

collection. I enjoy mixing materials, textures and

patterns to create something new and surprising.

Like the rug with triangles – by using different

materials and techniques the pattern splits and

new surfaces appear. I also love mixing cultural

expressions. The panels are influenced by Indian

henna hand painting, cool Scandinavian colors

and the American modern music that I was listening

to at the time. And when the panels overlap,

the appearance changes and new patterns

emerge.

is thick, durable and easy to care for.

Designer Carl Öjestam:

“I started with the form of a cupped hand when

designing TIRUP swivel chair. It’s as if you sit in

the palm of the hand and lean against the fingers

- a warm and friendly gesture. Moulded

foam makes it very comfortable to sit on and

there’s plenty of room on the wide seat to put

your hands too. The chrome surface on the

plate under the chair creates an exciting mirror

effect that brings in the room as part of the

chair design.”

Big TV’s

need great solutions

So slick and sophisticated. And still so practical and smart.

The new STIBY storage solution blends design and smartness

in a new way.

The appearance of STIBY is geometric: rectangular forms

and horizontal lines, enhanced by the natural lines in the

wood. Beneath the stylish exterior, smart functions and

features unfold. Like flip-fronts and touch-open drawers

and doors. And the sliding glass doors are not only there

for show, they’re designed to elegantly conceal the TV

whenever there’s a need for it. Which, by the way, can be

up to 50 inches in a STIBY storage unit!

STIBY is available in two expressions,

ash and black-stained.

The other reason to smile:

the price

Small, but full of expression! Japanese designer Michiko Nakata has what it takes to

light up everyday life. And with such a small price tag, it’s hard not to smile.

KNUBBIG table lamps come in two different sizes and in a variety of patterns and

colors. The diffused light works perfectly as mood light in the living room, but also has

its given place on the bedside table, beside the TV or in storage units.

A new long-lasting

companion

The extensive LACK furniture series – which includes tables,

bookshelves, coffee tables, wall shelves and much more – has

another new member. And it’s the first time a lamp series has

been added to the range.

The LACK lamp series is coordinated with both LACK and EXPEDIT furniture

series in function, color and expression, making it their ideal lamp

companion. It includes table lamps, as well as bookcase lighting and spotlights.

The table lamp can be used both as regular table lamp or it can be

clamped on the LACK table or LACK/EXPEDIT bookcase.

Another great feature is the light source itself, which uses so called LED (Light

Emitting Diode) technique. These lamps have a far greater lifetime (up to

50,000 hours = 6 years! = 50 times longer than a regular light bulb). They

are also more environmentally friendly than regular bulbs, since they don’t

contain any hazardous metals or gases. LED lamps are now gaining

their way in home decorating, leading to more comfortable

everyday life, with less impact on the environment.

This LED-equipped lamp series

does whatever you want it to do,

thanks to its flexible “goose-neck”.

This means that the light easily can

be directed right where you need

it, whether it’s reading, working

or organizing your clothes. The

JANSJÖ lighting series, which includes

a wall lamp, table lamp,

floor lamp and a clamp spotlight,

is designed by Anna Efverlund

and Johanna Jelinek.

The big book bookcase

Big hardbacks and coffee table books. Lovely. But very tricky to cram into a regular

bookcase. The same goes for collectibles and souvenirs.

So we designed BERGSBO – a longed for solitaire bookcase, where space-demanding

literature and personal items have their own beautiful resort, nicely displayed

behind red or white glass/wooden doors. BERGSBO has a distinct Scandinavian

identity, offers both regular shelves and glass shelves inside, and can also be used as

a compliment to BILLY bookcase.

glass. Designer: K Hagberg/M Hagberg.

Daring and dazzling

The new TROLLSTA series has a lot of guts. It features not only strong colors and

unexpected materials, but also has the nerve to combine totally different furniture

designs. The result is quite unique. But don’t worry, TROLLSTA is just as clever and

practical as any other IKEA storage solution.

Even though the series share the same characteristics, the pieces are created by

different designers. This means they work well both as solitaires, together with existing

furniture, or as a theme-based, eye-catching collection.

The one-of-a-kind floor

It’s hard-wearing. It’s easy to lay. It can be used in any room (except wet

areas). And it comes with a price tag almost impossible to believe. Well,

if that isn’t IKEA, nothing is!

Now we’re widening the choice for our customers even further, with

TUNDRA in dark-brown. And just like all the other TUNDRA floors, it

comes with matching dark-brown skirting boards.

Designer Henrik Preutz:

“When I designed SKÄR mirrored cabinet I

thought about my own hallway and all the things

in it. There’s quite a lot that has to share a small

space. That’s why I made the cabinet with a

mirror on the outside and 16 hooks on the

inside – big enough to fit everything from hats

and jackets to bags, shoes and umbrellas. I also

decided to make the legs a little higher so it

would be easier to clean underneath. The hallway

gets dirty easily when you go in and out, in

all kinds of weather.”

and decorative, I decided to experiment

with a handle. The handles on the magazine box

even have dual functions – fold up the handles

and the box is easy to carry; fold them down to

protect against dust. I hope the series is both

useful and fun at the office and in the bookshelf

at home.”

“My hands and feet are always cold, which is

why I bury my feet under a pile of pillows when

I lie on the sofa. The thought struck me that it

would be nice to bury my feet inside the pillow,

so they would be totally surrounded by

the warm filling. Once I came up with the idea

for BARNSLIG pillow, the only thing to do was

to cut holes and sew on cuffs. Then I put extra

effort into decorating the pillows, because I

wanted them to look like ordinary decorative

pillows - as well!”

aren’t practical when you want to do other

things. They easily slip off your chilly shoulders.

That’s why BARNSLIG blanket has a

touch-and-close fastening in the back and

holes for your hands - just like a cape. So you

can do things with your hands, drink tea or

play computer games with the blanket on.”

Found it!

It’s hard to tell what’s best – the design, the features or the price. But one thing’s for

sure: DROPPAR food storage series is a great kitchen supporter. Not only does it cover

many basic storing functions (pasta, herbs, oil/vinegar, sugar etc), it’s also designed

for a more efficient kitchen life. Thanks to the see-through lid and bottom, the content

of DROPPAR series is always easy to recognize – whether the jars are displayed on

shelves or kept in a drawer.

The DROPPAR series, designed by Maya Robert, is made of glass (partly frosted), with

lid of stainless steel, SAN-plastic and silicone rubber gasket.

- and for that you need good storage.

When I created the PROPER series I wanted to

make practical jars that you could also have

out on your worktop, where they would be part

of daily life in your kitchen. I think the shape of

the jars and the combination of stainless steel

and glass convey an honesty, pride, interest

and joy in cooking.”

“There are many similarities between Scandinavian

and Japanese design, such as beautiful

shapes, harmony, simplicity and functionality.

These are the elements I focused on with the

DINERA DEKAL series. I was also inspired by traditional

Japanese patterns and used one around

the bowls and dish. The pattern is glossy on the

matt surface, which gives a subtle accent that

shifts with the light. The series is also very versatile

– and I hope you will enjoy not only Asian

food, but food from all over the world with it.”
