IKEA - New Rustic Style Inspired Pieces

This small collection of rustic style products from IKEA was inspired by public spaces and workspaces that date from the 1880’s to the 1920’s like farms, factories, and schools. The look is created by using materials and designs that are honest, long lasting and utilitarian. In fact, IKEA are saying this a style that's simple, imperfect, yet personal - pretty spot on, I think. They have created pieces using long-lasting materials like pine, clay, ceramics, natural fibres and lacquered metal, wool, cotton, sheepskin and linen. Then they've finished them with accent colours like faded red, turquoise, muted yellow and green – all still visibly popular in today’s houses that dot the Swedish landscape. You'll see how they've used textiles like cushions, rugs and throws that use visible stitching, coarse weaves and raw edges, creating an unrefined look. Personally, I like how they've shown how rustic style can be expressed differently across the home. In the living room they've shown how darker tones of blue and black and can combine with natural materials like rattan for a cosy atmosphere. Yet, in the bedroom, the rustic look becomes lighter and more industrial with strong metal pieces mixed with crisp, white linens. Which rustic style is for you, folks?

  6. I love this style especially the white bedroom, I think you have to have quite a large industrial/loft space to make it work though x

  8. Wow, some really great pieces! I love the general styling of these shots, just not mad about the tiles in the bedroom, that's a bit too clinical for me.

    1. I agree re: the tiles, but I'd love them in a bathroom! I like the juxtaposition between the soft, inviting white bedlinen against the industrial metal bedstead - it works a treat.

  10. These guys are smart. When you watch them change with the every moving tide of trends and yet they stay within their own perimeter. That is success!

    1. there are some really good items shown here. Who'd a thunk it from Ikea? Like Elisa I'm quite taken with the bed frame. Is that print their's too or a prop? A wonderful take on vintage german education aids if it is....

  12. Gorgeous - love the wardrobe. I'd love to paint designs on it in bright colours and watch them fade over time to get that lived in look! And I agree about the tiles, they would be amazing in a bathroom, with those lockers as well. Heading over to Ikea site now!
