    BRAND NEW: Don’t miss Ikea’s stunning limited-edition Nipprig range

    by  • Thursday, April 2, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    As spring creeps into the air, so do our thoughts of exotic escapes to sunnier climes. It seems that Ikea’s been doing a little crafty mind reading, with the timely reveal of its beautiful new Nipprig collection. Inspired by Vietnam, it’s full of natural rattan textures and bursts of leafy greens, with many of the items feeling like a tropical twist on the brand’s classics.

    Lead-image-IkeaThe gorgeous range of two-tone plant pots are destined to be a seasonal favourite. Made with durable water hyacinth and completely hand woven, these lovingly made beauties are the ideal way to give your scheme an instant summer update. Fill with large leafy blooms for an authentic tropical vibe, or mix and match tones and sizes for a relaxed, outdoorsy feel.


    The range extends to include furniture, too. Taking advantage of rattan’s flexible nature, the pieces feature lots of soft curved lines in a striking black finish, for a distinctive, practical collection that’s hard to resist! Choose from a stunning outdoor lounger, understated footstools and sofas, or stylish armchairs. Our top pick? Check out the two-tier side table, £40, available in either statement black or botanical green.

    If you’re on the lookout for something smaller, take a peek at the pretty set of accessories. From rattan place mats to straw hats, the Nipprig range even includes a re-imagined version of the ubiquitous Ikea carrier bag. Don’t miss the stripy storage boxes, £15 each – perfect for filling with linens at home, or with foodie treats at a summer picnic.

    From larger furniture pieces including tables, coffee tables and a daybed down to hand-blown glass bottles and bamboo lattice lamp shades.  The neutral colours are easy to live with and chosen to fit any home. This is a such an early sneak peek that Ikea don’t even have prices yet but keep an eye out in store and online from August.

    After a two week break I’m feeling quite rejuvenated, sunny and actually a little excited to be back at my desk at Ideal Home HQ. On my return our new September issue had just arrived and if you haven’t yet bagged yourself a copy, it is packed full of stylish storage solutions and ideas to help organise your life (it’s in the shops now, hint hint!). One quick flick through and I felt overcome with calm and order. A little something to share are these two home office shoots our stylish stylists did. The first is from our Cash Clever feature on how to create a work area for less than £215…

    Chair, £39, Ikea + Picture frames, £65.96, Ikea + 5 magazine files, £45, The Holding Company + Lamp, £60, John Lewis + Two jars, £4, Sabichi = £213.96. Bargain!

    You may have also spotted this fab industrial style home office from our ‘Class of 2012′ decorating feature. I love the metal school-style cabinet from The Old Cinema and the lovely Conran desk for Marks & Spencer and there’s a place for everything with wall mounted storage ideas galore! No excuse for a messy desk. – Alice
