Yesterday, Maxwell attended the NYC press preview for the new items launching at IKEA in the coming year. High on his list of favorites were the new textiles and there were a few furniture standouts as well - jump below for his for photos and notes:
I loved this new fabric pattern of trees!
New sofa bed taken from the IKEA design vault from years ago. Really nice and comfy. In taupe and blue.
Reidar Chair is a classic already, particularly in blue and orange.
Favorite new pattern bedding w red animals and polka dots.
They're keeping these great bottles w caps, have a new trolley & great kitchen towels
Lots of textiles and fabric DIY ideas - these were placemats and napkins cut from fabric bolts.
