1. Stockholm Chair, $139
The new Stockholm dining chairs come in a Walnut veneer and a painted green finish but the Walnut finish is my hands-down favorite. Love how Ikea's introducing more classic finishes on their most versatile pieces.
2. Stockholm Glass Door Cabinet, $399
Ma-ma. Saw this in the catalogue and nearly drooled over it. The style is so clean & modern--very Jonathan Adler--but the yellow pop keeps it fun & youthful. I love that they used ring pulls on the doors instead of a basic knob...totally elevates the final look.
3. Strandmon Wing Chair, $279
You know times are changing when you see a traditional Wingback chair at Ikea! This chair comes in 3 colors that are saturated enough to give your space a jolt of energy yet still neutral enough to play well with your other pieces. I'm actually doing some custom reupholstery on one of these for a Master Bedroom project I'm working on now and can't wait to see the finished result.
4. Stockholm Swivel Chair, $399
These chairs would be great in a commercial application or a smaller residential space. The fact that they come in velvet AND swivel makes them a smart buy in my book!
5. Stockholm TV Unit, $299
I'm still seeing wayyyy too many flat screen TVs sitting atop bulky and/or unattractive TV units!! I love how the new walnut finish is being incorporated onto the frames and bases of so many of the new cases pieces...definitely ups the ante. This will be my go-to recommendation for an inexpensive TV unit...plus it comes in an all Walnut (veneer) option. Can't really beat this for $300.
6. Bernhard Chair, $149
These could work for office chairs just as well as dining chairs with 3 color options (white, black, citron) and style for days. For a client (or friend) looking to add some color to their space, I'd suggest the citron option. Personally, though? I'd have the seats reupholstered for a custom look. I can just see a stripe running down the center of the seat now...
7. Stockholm Sofa, $999
I mentioned this number last week but couldn't do this post without including it in the final round up. I made an Ikea run last Friday and totally forgot to lay eyes on this sofa but in the meantime, I'm still in love until I have a reason not to be. This is the ONLY place I've seen a kelly green velvet sofa for under $1,000. If you know of another source, I'd love to see it. I have experience with Ikea sofa's so I absolutely vouch for them and in my book, this one's a total winner.
