SKOGSTA collection by Ikea

I know I’m a little late with this, but have you seen the Skogsta collection from Ikea? It was launched in August and I love it.

The crates pulled me in first. I’ve been looking for some crates to incorporate into a few rooms in my flat for a while now. Vintage ones seem to be overpriced and the retro styled ones just look tacky. It’s nice to have finally found a style I really like. After exploring the full collection online I’ve quickly fallen for it and can’t wait to take a trip to Ikea in September.

I like the idea of brining the outdoors inside, especially over the transitional months of summer to autumn. The Skogsta collection allows you to create a fresh and natural look. The mix of the dark and lighter wood really offer a timeless addition to the home.

I love the country feel to these pieces, they way they have been styled for the photographs is beautiful. The collection is perfect for a countryside home but I also think each and every item would hold up well with a modern city apartment. Each item is made from solid acacia wood. They will age gracefully, stand the test of time and everything is multi-purpose.
What do you think of the Skogsta collection?
