Textiles make a home come alive. They set the style, and add softness, warmth and personality to any room.”-Christina Larsson, Range Strategist Textiles

You can have any color and pattern in your home as long as it makes you feel good. And don’t be afraid to mix. If it looks good to you, then it is beautiful because it’s personal.”-Annette Ydholm, Interior Designer

Pocket springs are often used in mattresses and give lots of comfort.

A new cover can give your sofa a new look.

Durable and easy care make leather sofas practical for families with children.

Untreated solid wood can be lacquered, stained or painted any way you like.

Sliding doors with mirrors are a good idea in small, narrow spaces. They take no extra room to open, and the mirrors make the room look bigger.

A mirror door doesn’t only combine two functions in one; it also makes a small space feel larger.

A wardrobe doesn’t necessarily need to store clothes (it can also be used as a large shoe cabinet!).

IKEA’s boxes and baskets are made not only from recycled paper, but also from sea grass, banana fibers, solid poplar and solid pine, coconut palm leaf, water hyacinth and rattan, laminated cardboard and polyester and corrugated cardboard.

Did You Know That…..

You can save more water by doing the dishes in a container instead of in running water.

Many of the IKEA beds make good use of the space on the sides and underneath with storage for extra bedding or seasonal clothing.

An untreated solid pine bed frame can be colored, stained or covered with textiles to make your own unique décor statement.

Sateen-woven bed linen with a lyocell/cotton blend feature fine luster and softness.

Rugs are almost like textile furniture; not only do they absorb noise and give good comfort, they can also change the look of a room.

Panel curtains can also function as room dividers.

You can renew your sofa or bed by simply adding a cushion.
