SÄLLSKAP is a collection inspired by the Scandinavian arts and crafts tradition and by the once groundbreaking idea of rooms designed for the whole family. It’s a collection of furniture, textiles and dinnerware that brings inspiration from the past into the present in the best way we could think of – by moving things forward.
ENJOY THE SEASON
Most of us tend to romanticize the holidays. But as they draw closer, the hustle and bustle sets in. Then before we know it, the season’s over and it’s almost like we never really got to enjoy it. So this year, you can do things differently. This year, IKEA is coming with a flat-pack of help.
From cookie baking to throwing parties.
Creating room for holiday feasts. Or finding foldable beds, when guests drop by. IKEA has everything this holidays. All under one roof. And with the know-how
to make it come together beautifully.
It’s the holiday season. So just relax, and let IKEA help you make it the best one ever.
STYLES OF THE SEASON
This year’s WINTER collection is inspired by late 19th century Swedish folklore.
Embracing simplicity with authentic and warm materials - yarn, wool, leather, linen, felt, natural woods and metal. Unwrapping traditional patterns and prints. Presenting muted, natural colours, as well as all the seasonal golds and reds.
The WINTER collection ranges from decoration to lighting, textiles, dinnerware, cooking and eating. Everything to make home feel super inviting this year.
”For me winter holiday is a lot about family and friends. It is that time of the year when you share together, food, time and lots of love. When decorating, I prefer a more natural colour palette for my home, then I can then keep the holiday throughout the winter season. I like to keep that feeling for a long time.”
Creative leader, Karin Gustavsson
