I was just taking a look at the Summer collection of outdoor gear from Ikea and there are definitely some hits. I put a whole mess of images in the gallery — but these are my favorites. I think if I were to kit out completely from Ikea, I would mix the collections a bit (because that always seems to work with Ikea). Definitely I would take a few of these AMMERÖ easy chairs (I can’t decide if I like the black or the white best) .
These sweet lights would be charming on a pergola.
And the Retro looking sofa bench with high sides seems perfect for a cozy place.
Lanterns (yep, always have to have good lanterns)….
And for the details, I would opt for the Liberty-esque prints. They have a romantic floral appeal that seems very of the moment. I think that they would pair nicely with some of the more streamlined pieces. I am not such a fan of the bright candy colored collection….but I am curious what are some of your favorite pieces. The ones that make you want to run to the store before they sell out?
