Kamprad had a vision "to exercise a improve everyday life for the many people" through making expert pattern affordable. Furthermore, the clean, uncomplicated aesthetics of IKEA pattern agency the pieces are slowly to blend into whatever space. As a personal tribute to the function of Kamprad, I took a await at my ain habitation to meet merely how many items from IKEA I bask daily!

Although the cabinets inwards my kitchen are made past times Swedish construct - Marbodal, the IKEA STENSTORP kitchen island together with LOHALS rug conduct keep centre stage! No doubtfulness many of the smaller utensils were also picked upward (without fifty-fifty noticing!) on my way through the blueish together with yellowish super shop (and I'm sure at that topographic point are about of IKEAs meatballs lurking behind the refrigerator door too! 


The Söderhamn chaise longue seen inwards the window is a relatively novel purchase (you may conduct keep noticed merely how pop it is alongside Scandinavian pattern lovers together with all the members inwards my family!).

My bedroom has surprisingly few pieces of IKEA (shock, horror!)- but this is to a greater extent than than made upward for past times the Söderhamn armchair (I late transformed it using a Bemz Malmen Velvet Chestnut cover  - don't forget yous tin larn 15% off correct forthwith with the code 15designsummer!). One of the beauties of IKEA slice of furniture is that it tin locomote hacked to exercise a to a greater extent than personal await together with feel! 

At outset glance it's difficult to spot anything from the slice of furniture shop inwards my daughter's bedroom. But sure enough, at that topographic point on the windowsill is a plant, flora pot together with picture frame all scooped upward on a trip to the Malmö branch (most probable to purchase something else entirely!). 



And finally. It is apt that the piddling corner of my habitation where I sit down each 24-hour interval to write this blog, my books - together with lately, participate inwards alive press interviews almost the 'Father of flatpack', is almost only made upward from IKEA pieces including the chair, ALEX drawer unit, desk together with shelves!

So, what's adjacent on my list? One of my favourite collections to appointment is the Stockholm 2017 (launched in conclusion April), which was "designed to mix together with blend inwards with what yous already conduct keep at home', together with I've got my optic on this number (as good equally a few other items from the arrive at - naturally!)....





From a pattern perspective I would similar to tell give thank yous you, Ingvar Kamprad, yous laid out with a vision "to exercise a improve everyday life for the many people" together with assistance to a greater extent than people access expert pattern together with yous for sure achieved that. 


I'm together with hence curious to listen what IKEA agency to you.
