We already announced that IKEA would be a big part of our second hometour. We first saw the announcement of the Ilse Crawford collection and we felt in love right away. When realized the collection would come out when we would move into our new apartment, we were even more excited! The cork and natural-fibre homeware products has a really warm feeling but the shapes are still very streamlined. What actual works pretty well in our cold and concrete apartment without taking away the aesthetics.
What makes this collection so special for us, is that you can imagine this in a Japanese house but also on the other side of the world, for example in our apartment. We think this is because the details, what is hard especially for a brand like IKEA, are good and right! Beside the details, the collection is very touchable! We notice ourselves touching the table while having dinner. To make a long story short: It’s a renewable and natural collection that is heat resistant, lightweight, and dirt repellent which is a delight to the eye.
