At La Vie Partagée, we love mixing IKEA products into our interiors to create a mix of high and low, and not to mention helping our wallet at the same time. IKEA has limited edition series which are much more interesting than their regular products. There are two series that are being released in September and October and we are excited to get our hands on them.
SITTNING Collection (September 2015)
According to IKEA: “The SITTNING collection is based on over 40 pieces of dinnerware, flatware, glasses, cutlery, vases, candle holders and tablecloths. Designed with coordination and composition in mind, these objects are ready to turn an ordinary evening into an extraordinary evening. Made from natural materials such as cotton, mouth-blown glass and solid wood. Available in all shapes and sizes, just like your loved ones.”
The moodiness in the various color combinations in this series is perfect to showcase at all the dinners and parties to take place throughout the holiday season.
This is a nice tongue-in-cheek place mat to remind guests to put away their phones while remaining within their reach.
The color options are perfect for the ambiance of the fall night.
The photos below are from our visit to the IKEA Elizabeth in New Jersey over the Labor Day weekend. The products are well made and the colors are excellent for a dramatic tablescape. However, the items in this collection are pricier than the average price point at IKEA.
SINNERLIG collection with Ilse Crawford (October 2015)
According to IKEA: “The SINNERLIG collection consists of more than 30 pieces for the home and can be loosely categorized into three groups: working, dining and lounging. Although the collection works neatly in these settings, the furniture have an open use design; it’s up to you how you wish to live with them and how they fit into your life. With attention to the smallest details, these pieces are designed to engage our senses and connect us to our homes. They don’t just look good, they feel good to touch and use. They are objects that support and enhance the many ways we live today.”
Cork is a trendy renewable material that is a focus in this collection.
My favorite item besides the lighting fixture is the small sofa. It is modern, textually interesting and so pretty to look at.
Let us know your favorite items from the new collections. Happy IKEA shopping.
