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.”

Salander. Imported. W59". Assorted patterns.
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

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

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:
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
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.
TUNDRA floor $1.19/sq ft Click-lock function. Durable
hard-wearing surface. Laminate. Requires assembly. One
pack covers 5.73sq ft. Dark brown.
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.”

Designer Marcus Arvonen:
“I enjoyed creating a common distinguishing
feature on all the different pieces in the KNÖS
series. Since I wanted the series to be both functional
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

Designer Maria Vinka:
“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!”

Designer Maria Vinka:
“When winter sets in, it’s nice to be able to
curl up in a blanket on the sofa. But blankets
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.”

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.

Designer Mia Gammelgaard:
“For me, cooking is about desire, atmosphere
and inspiration, but also about being well-organized
- 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.”

Designer Michiko Nakata:
“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.”
