Meet SJÄLVSTÄNDIG, the new IKEA collection that’s rich in bright, flamboyant colors.
Any new furniture collection from IKEA is something to get excited about—we’re still swooning over the organizers in the IKEA Catalog 2019—but this latest release is in a league of its own. Dubbed SJÄLVSTÄNDIG, which means independent, the limited-edition collection is carefree, flamboyant, and a little wacky–perfectly suited to balance some of IKEA’s more restrained looks.
Launching in IKEA stores across the United States in October, SJÄLVSTÄNDIG includes 29 new pieces. Most are funky accessories and décor, and all the better for enlivening more basic, neutral pieces you already have in your home. (One of the top trends projected in the IKEA Catalog 2019 was that rich, bold color is making a comeback, after all.) These are the pieces we’re most looking forward to seeing.
SJÄLVSTÄNDIG Rug, Low Pile
This multi-piece rug comes with a tough-and-close fastening, so you can move the pieces around and pair them with pieces from other rugs in the series for a custom look or set small groupings around a space for a more scattered, playful look.
To buy: $129; IKEA stores.
The slightly concave side of this stoneware vase adds to its unique (i.e., funky) appeal.
To buy: $15; IKEA stores.
SJÄLVSTÄNDIG Floor Cushion
These cushions—available in two hues—link together with press studs so you can have multiple cushions for sitting or a long train of them for napping. The covers are removable and 100 percent cotton.
To buy: $25; IKEA stores.
SJÄLVSTÄNDIG Lamp shade
This pretty rice paper shade can slide over any bulb in your home to help hanging lights or table lamps give off rosy hues. For more rosy looks, check out Gwyneth Paltrow and goop’s new collection with CB2.
To buy: $8; IKEA stores.
These untreated beech legs are for the IKEA hacking aficionados: They can be painted, stained, oil-treated, or otherwise adapted to give ottomans, chairs, and more a personalized look.
To buy: $30 for two; IKEA stores.
SJÄLVSTÄNDIG is available in-store only, for a limited time and only while supplies last. Items will be available starting in October.
