Ikea Stockholm 2013 Collection

The first images from Ikea’s high end collection, Stockholm, are already here. The products won’t hit the stores until April but I love seeing everything beforehand. Here are my favorite picks:


I’m in love with this sideboard/credenza. I’m really into Mid-Century Modern lately and I think this is kind of that style. I read it’s made from veneer though, I wish it were solid wood.


Those high-back chairs look very comfy and perfect for reading or watching TV. Again, Ikea seems to be going a bit old school with this collection.ikea stockholm 2013

I know, I know. I have a ton of plates & props already for food pics (and sadly I’m running out of space for more), but these two called my name. They remind me of these high-end ones by Villeroy & Bosch.


I recently realized that I’ve always had it in my head that coffee tables are usually square or rectangular. Well, you can now count me in as a round coffee table enthusiast. I love the simple lines of this one and the warm tones of the wood. And do you see the rug underneath? They also have it in yellow…



When I saw it, it instantly reminded me of this hack I did years ago:


What do you guys think of the new collection? I think it’s more sophisticated than their usual line of products. Of course, the price tag will probably show that as well. But I like it!

All images except the last one are from Ikea.

      Thanks John! I did that years ago when we needed a rug for the living room, but ended up being too small/light colored for the room/area. I still LOVE it though so I rolled it up and am keeping it in storage until we can find a place for it. For some reason it was a really popular project!

      Haha, yeah, it’s definitely a problem. And I really like the credenza, I wish we had a place for something like that.

      Yes, that’s what’s happening in ours too. I feel like I made a ton of mistakes when we decorated the living room (the large&tall bookcases, the too-big TV stand, the comfy but not-too-pretty Poang…) that I’m slowly trying to redo them as money allows.

      I hear you on the Standmon. These ones look nicer for some reason, I like the legs and the shape better.

      Oh no! It’s one of the few furniture & home decor stores out here, so I’m a bit obsessed. Thankfully (or not, depending on who you ask) we only live about 15 minutes away from one.

    No! About a year ago, I would have bought that yellow rug in a flash – that was going to be my ‘signature’ colour to lift all the blues. Instead, I did end up with an Ikea Stockholm rug with blue triangles, which of course I love (but it was $100 off in the latest sales, so that was annoying!) but it is SO much like the one you did!

    OMG I neeeeed that yellow rug! Been searching for about a year but nowhere seems to do that moroccan trellis style here in UK. Excited!
