Good Mornings

Mornings will get a little easier once you clean up your daily routine. IKEA wants to help get your day started with its new SPRUTT collection of storage, organizers, and accessories, all designed to make your mornings smoother. Each piece is super-functional and brings a fun and graphic look to your bedrooms.


We particularly love the SPRUTT cabinet with nine drawers and the open-storage towel holder that both promise to keep your belongings neat and organized.

Four on the Floor

Streamlined yet intricate, this 4-drawer chest is a slim storage solution that brings understated charm and elegance to homes that are a little tight on space. We love how the glossy white lacquered surfaces contrast with the dark walnut fronts, making for a simple yet well-designed storage standard.

Out of the Woods

Outdoor living gets a little more glamorous, thanks to the two new pieces in Minotti’s Aston Cord Outdoor collection.

As with the rest of the furniture in the collection, the Loveseat and the 240cm Sofa are made from pewter-coloured metal frames that are braided with ultra-strong polypropylene cord. The materials used in the furniture’s construction are highly durable and are specially treated for exterior use.

The Luxury of Sleep

The Bel bed, by Treku, ranks high on our list of luxury sleepers. The slim profile and sculptural wood structure are just proof that this is a bed that deserves to be proudly displayed at home. Choose between walnut and oak for the bed base, and fabric or leather for the headboard.

Out of Africa

African tribal patterns get a modern makeover with these vibrant cushions from Bungalow 55. Not only are they bright, bold and colourful, each cushion also features a different print on each side. Want to quickly switch out the look in the living room? Just flip over the cushions!

Sunny Side up

The new Button collection of storage furniture promises to put a smile on your face every day. The series – which includes a sideboard, a buffet, a chest of 5 drawers, an open shelf and a 2-seater sofa – boasts a chirpy canary yellow and introduces a bright burst of sunshine to the home. Pick a single piece to accentuate your interior or go for the whole set and make a bold statement.
