Colorful bathrobes and towels in a sauna environment


In the past couple of years, interior design trends have shifted in favor of making the home as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We've seen this through the incorporation of cozier elements (like boucle furniture), more natural materials and finishes, and more earth-toned colors throughout home interiors. And now, with IKEA's most recent collaboration with Finnish design house Marimekko, at-home wellness is taking center stage. BASTUA, the limited-edition collection, was inspired by nature and the self-care rituals of the Nordic sauna—and it's filled with items designed to allow you to sit back and say, "ahhh."

While some items in the collection (like the sauna bucket) are only relevant to those blessed enough to have an at-home sauna, other items will allow you to recreate a spa-like experience at home (without the costly renovation). This convenient LED lantern and this soft, breathable kimono, for example, are perfect for setting the scene for relaxation.

Another trend you'll see reflected in this collection? Bright, playful colors and patterns. The collaboration is filled Marimekko's signature bold designs, with the prints taking inspiration from water ripples and rhubarb plants, which grow outside of sauna buildings in Finland.

Shop our favorite items from the collection below, and don't delay—the line is only available while supplies last.

Portable LED lamps are great for outdoor entertaining or for a convenient reading light wherever you need it in the house. This lantern is lightweight and casts a soft, diffused light.
