Yes, we’re still many months away from any kind of bubble-expanding, while-the-hours-away celebration with great friends and family celebration, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do a little preparation for that very excellent time in the future.

Ikea’s new Ljuvare collection— “more delightful” in Swedish—is a collaboration between Lebanese designer Nada Debs and in-house designer Paulin Machado. Debs is known for her modern take on classic Middle Eastern-inspired patterns and designs, and mixed materials—woods and metals—and translated her luxury craft into Ikea’s Democratic Design program. Ljuvare builds on the Ljuv collection Debs designed in 2019.

The “more” in this collection features hammered metal serving dishes, coasters and lanterns—but we’ve got our eye on the warmly patterned floor cushions, perfect for casual seating in future get-togethers. And for now, a remote Saturday night tele-party with friends.

The collection launches at a few select stores in February—in the west, that means the Richmond and Calgary stores.
