Often, a trend or collection really makes you want to completely re-invent your home’s aesthetic and IKEA’s new NIPPRIG collection of summer pieces really makes me wish our home was more whitewashed floors and rustic charm rather than ‘modern classic’.
Designed and made in collaboration with local producers in Vietnam and Indonesia, NIPPRIG uses renewable materials like bamboo, rattan, seagrass and water hyacinth and works with their naturally durable qualities using traditional skills like hand-weaving.
Typical of the brand, the pieces are achingly affordable and in my opinion totally worthy of being future classics – my barometer for this is whether they make me want to buy up a load and store for my future home (this feeling occurs more rarely than you may assume).
The beautifully crafted and generously sized chairs available in black, green and natural colours, weigh in at only £50 – and gracefully curved side tables at £40 and i’m definitely hoarding some of those beautiful three hooked coat hangers for just £6 [perhaps a few of those] – and ‘hello, mid-century style room divider at £39!’ Well played Ikea – again!
See the rest of the collection here and because its a limited edition – snap it up whilst you can!
