It’s always exciting when IKEA bring out a new PS collection, but it’s even more exciting when the kind folks at IKEA Towers let us take a sneak peek at the new collection before it launches. The good news is that’s exactly what we get to do today – feast your eyes on the brand new PS 2014 collection, which IKEA are calling ‘On The Move’ and launches on April 1st. IKEA created the new PS collection for a home that is always in motion, one that will be ready for new situations and needs. They hope it this new collection of designs will inspire people to live more simply and do more with the space they have in their homes – ‘young-in-mind urban people living “in the moment” in a small space’ was who they had in mind when creating the new PS 2014 collection. From a narrow colour block bench (ideal for making the process of taking shoes on and off easier in tiny hallways) to a mini indoor herb garden greenhouse (which clearly taps into the now established trend for indoor plants and having something to nurture in our homes), the new range delivers a suite of products with the modern home in mind.
Around 18 months ago I bought the PS Pendle clock shelf for my living room (seen on the UK edition of my book) because it was not only practical and stylish but it also reminded me of staying at my gran’s house as a child because she had a huge grandfather clock in her entrance hall. And nothing beats a product that resonates with you personally, does it? It’s my belief that whether a product is from a global brand like IKEA or an in independent designer, as long as the pieces tell a story personal to you, that’s all that matters. Which of these new PS 2014 collection designs are catching your eye?
