Summer is almost here, and for many, that means it is time to do a little refresh of the home to welcome the new season. I love heading to IKEA for just that, as it has so many great and affordable products which can easily help you transition and get ready.
Here are some of the best new products to look out for at IKEA this summer to get that Scandinavian feeling at home whether that’s inside or outdoors:
The RÄFFELBJÖRK vase was designed by Lisa Hilland and is inspired by rainbows with its flowingly playful shape and shimmering finish. Put your favourite flowers in it – or enjoy it as a beautiful glass sculpture in your home.
Create a cozy dining or lounging area for your balcony, patio, terrace or garden with the beautiful SEGERÖN loveseat. The flexible outdoor furniture series is designed for outdoor life and all types of weather, climates and activities. A piece of affordable furniture that lasts long – luxurious yet minimalistic, with a timeless design and quality for many relaxing outdoor days to come.
With the VAPPEBY portable bluetooth speaker you can bring your favourite music everywhere – out in the garden, to the beach and into the bathroom. It is waterproof, comes in three different colours and packs a lot of sound for its small size. Why not pair two to enjoy stereo sound?
Summer is the perfect time to use more colour and add new energy to your table and life at home, and with the PAPPERSBJÖRK glasses, you can do just that. They come in different coordinated colours – and are just as great for parties as for everyday meals.
This IKEA 365+ beverage dispenser is a nice and simple way to serve beverages – both for everyday moments and parties. The jar with tap has a stylish design in glass and bamboo and a wide opening so you can easily add fruit or herbs. Place it on top of the ÖGONTRÖST stand to raise it from the surface and make it easier to use.
Time to sit back and relax. This STRANDÖN sun lounger gives you enough room to stretch out – while the lightweight, sturdy and compact design makes it perfect to bring along when the ocean’s waves are calling to you.
Along with the sun lounger, this lightweight and compact STRANDÖN parasol makes your summer days easier and nicer. The fabric’s colour and pattern last a long time and create a great summer vibe while providing good protection against the sun’s rays.
This decorative modern-styled SOMMARLÅNKE LED pendant lamp with an unusual shape helps you create a cozy vibe in your outdoor space. It is battery-operated and easy to bring with you, a nice decorative light.
With the SOMMARFLOX bamboo tray, you can pamper yourself or others with a fika this summer. It has been woven with natural fibres, so when you choose this product, you bring home something unique – a piece of nature refined by skilled artisans.
Serve your drinks in style this summer. This minimal glass carafe with clean lines and a long stirrer in white glass is part of the new VARMBLIXT collection, consisting of other matching pieces for your cocktail set.
The SÄCKSPINNARE cushion cover with its artsy watercolour pattern reminds you of an ocean meeting a sandy beach. The cotton fabric has been brushed giving it a soft texture – similar to the fuzzy skin of a peach.
Need decorative bowls for small dishes and snacks? Then maybe these two green, lime-shaped glass bowls can be something for you. The set is part of the ÖMSESIDIG collection designed by Liliana Ovalle and adds a fun element to your table this summer.
This blue & orange bath sheet with fringes is just as nice to wrap around you as to lie on in the sauna or at the beach. The pattern is jacquard-woven and has inverted colours on both sides. Inspired by nature and the self-care rituals of Nordic sauna culture, the BASTUA collection combines IKEA home furnishing knowledge with Marimekko’s iconic print design in products for well-being inside and outside the home, made from simple, natural materials.
Artwork makes a difference and adds a personal touch to your home. With these YLLEVAD art cards, you can create your own mini-gallery on a wall or shelf in a flash, and with their vibrant colours and fun illustrations, they are perfect for summertime.
Add colour and a fresh new feel to your space whether it is indoors or outdoors. This bold KORSNING flatwoven rug with playful stripes is both durable and stain resistant and will keep its charm come rain or shine.
