It just wouldn’t be a proper furniture fair without IKEA, which had its own new line of furniture to show off at ICFF this week. The Stockholm Collection is aiming to be a more cozy, softer feel than the standard, sharp-edged IKEA fare.
It’s also a little more green and more mod in style than what you might normally associate IKEA with. Greens and earthy tones in particular show up in many different pieces, including chairs, pillows, and vases. The softer, more comfortable chairs in the collection sport round edges, with many of them using high-quality leather. There are also a few design quirks that help make some of the new pieces fit better into the design scheme you already have. One dresser has a transparent back, so you can see whatever paint job or wallpaper you already have, instead of the normal plain backing of a dresser.
There’s lots more you can check out over on IKEA’s Stockholm Collection site. You can do some pre-shopping there while you wait for the collection to land in U.S. stores sometime this August.
