NOVITÀ | IKEA

As a Scandinavian in Italy one of the best places to go is of-course IKEA. It always makes me feel like home no matter where I am (even though I am not Swedish..) This week we had two trips to the IKEA in Carugate near Milan. I love going there as it is very big and I always spot new products before anywhere else. This time what caught my eye was the new bamboo stands for tablets and / or books called RIMFORSA. The stand can be used on your worktop or desk, or you can even hang it on the wall for more space when cooking. It has a modern and simplistic look, and is very sturdy so it doesn’t fall. “When I designed RIMFORSA I wanted to inspire people to cook – and help make the kitchen a practical place for preparing food together with family and friends. With RIMFORSA organisers I wanted to make it easier to store and display fruits and spices in a beautiful way. The stainless steel together with bamboo brings a modern style with high quality, and is a step towards a more sustainable use of materials.” – Ehlén Johansson

The packaging of the new FRÖER seeds range is so cute and colourful, and makes me wish I had green fingers. Maybe these sets will make it easier for me to try to grow something..

I also liked the new range of outdoor decorative lightning called SOLVINDEN based around apples and pears. How cute is this pear-shaped lighting chain?

The Italian IKEA’s always have an amazingly good selection of coffee and cakes, so we had to make a pitstop; mocaccino coffee’s, Swedish Easter cake and chocolate crostata cake.

On the way out we had to have a browse through the food section where I discovered that now they sell frozen waffles which made me very happy. So handy for the times you just want a little waffle heart but don’t have the time to make it.

That Scandinavian feeling is a blog by Ingrid Opstad, a Norwegian journalist living in Italy. Ingrid wants her blog to represent the feeling of coziness and calm with a Nordic simplistic, minimalistic style. The blog is intended to share her knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. A place where you can get inspired to find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.
