IKEA'S Limited Edition True Blue Collection

1. PAPPERS DEKORATION paper decor | 2. MATTA rug | 3. VAS STOR vase | 4. SKARMVAGG room divider | 5. BURGSVIK tray table
Our favourite folks over at IKEA have something blue up their sleeves for us: a limited edition collection of products inspired by the brand's travels to India, and a surge in the popularity of the colour blue not seen since the 1980s. Yet it's not all blues, there's a dash of glitter in the mix thanks to the BURGSVIK tray table made of hammered brass. There's even a rug (BJERREDE) that is made from recycled waste and is finished with a stamp in Hindi to show its origin. For me, the great thing about this collection is how easy it is to incorporate at least one of the pieces into your existing home. Take the patterned BURTRÄSK armchair cover as an example, it goes with the classic TULLSTA armchair and gives it an instant update. And, as good as these instant updates are, they're all the more worthwhile when you can discover the story behind them, like with the BLÅSKLÖVER cushion, which was inspired by the lively traffic in India’s cities. Or the BETYDANDE blue glass vase which was inspired by the vessels traditionally used by the Indian people for carrying water. The vessels were originally ceramic, but nowadays they are made from easy-to-carry plastic and can be seen everywhere in India. It's hard for me to pick a favourite but I do love the tray table and the hanging BESLUTANDE paper decorations are wonderfully festive! How fab would they be hung over a dinner table for a party statement? The collection is in UK stores now and will be in American stores from July. Do you decorate with blue? Anything catching your eye from these True Blue pieces?

  20. I started buying blue accessories for the kitchen at the old house and ever since I started thinking of the new house I just bought and moved in, all I want is blue. I wonder how it will end up if I'm not careful... I'm dying for the big blue and white pouf but it doesn't seem as if we have the limited edition in Canada.

  25. Hi Will,

    Thanks for the fyi, I didn`t know Ikea was doing this so I`m going to keep my eyes peeled for when it hits stores near me.
    Blue is my favorite colour, so I have different shades of blue throughout my home and closet. Those poofs look fab, can`t wait to check them out in person.
    Hope you are having a nice day.

    :)

  33. Beautiful! I love that electric blue vase and the navy rug! Since the beginning of this year, I've been really drawn to those more classic shades of blue again!

  34. Blue is definitely one of my favourite colours this spring/summer, and I love this collection. Seems like it has come to UK stores before it comes to Sweden. That's a bit strange I think. If I am correctly informed it will launch in Sweden in June. I think it will be a successfull collection!

  36. Man how did I miss this post! Love the collection and now I only hope that the collection will come to Canada in July as well! Love that hammered brass table!
