Here's a sneak peek of what's new in store July 1.
What can we saywe’re suckers for Scandi-cool homewares. Ikea‘s 2021 July release is all about sweet, sweet summer: relaxed, playful and tranquil designs for easy living. Here are some of our favourites available in-store and online starting July 1, 2021.
Designer Mikael Axelsson really couldn’t have cared less what a watering can is supposed to look like, and we love this minimalist yet whimsical take. These watering cans come in glass or green powder coated steel and can also be used as vases.
I’m guilty of buying one Ikea item that’s meant to be a finishing touch and then falling in love with it so hard that I change all of my other decor to suit it. (Case in point, my yellow Langsted rug, which I thrifted on a whim for $15 last summer. Now, everything in my home is yellow.) This geometric cushion cover also has the potential to change everything.
Okay, no one is in the mood to hear about a weighted blanket right now (hello, heat wave!) but as time relentlessly marches on the weather is going to changeand it’s hard to find a weighted blanket for less than $200. The blanket weighs 8kg, and the filling is made of recycled polyester pearls, which is an environmental plus.
If you’ve been investing more time and energy in to plant care than personal relationships this year, as I proudly have, you’re going to want to see thesethe DrÃ¶msk plant pots have a gorgeous, textured blue glaze that’s serene and chic.
This new bed frame is enviably casual. (How effortlessly it loungesbed? Sofa? Who cares!) It’s not just for show, either: designer David Wahl stressed how important it was for the bed to be comfy for watching tv, hanging with friends or sleeping.
