ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-1There are two things I’ve long loved: one, to decorate with green & black decor (remember this living room in one of my old London apartments?!); and two, IKEA (remember when I took a behind the scenes tour of the IKEA catalog studio in Sweden?!). So, it’s no surprise that I’m head-over-heels for their limited edition SÄLLSKAP collection. The range of products focuses on black & green decor and is a limited edition collection of furniture, textiles and dinnerware that brings inspiration from the past into the present. Check out this colorful and creative collection of furniture homewares after the jump!

ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-2I love how the SÄLLSKAP collection is inspired by Scandinavian arts and crafts traditions. In fact, at the centre of the collection lies an aim to design furniture and decor towards the once-groundbreaking idea of rooms designed for the whole family. There’s a almost tangible ‘feel good’ vibe to the collection, don’t you think? I love leaf print SÄLLSKAP pillow and I’m ear-marking the pink colorway for my living room!ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-3I’ve been considering a green and black color scheme for one of the rooms in my new NYC apartment, and seeing this space in the palette has all but confirmed this direction for me! Also, that pop of pink in the pendants? Perfect!ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-4The hand-painted bowls have to be my favorite pieces from the entire collection. I do love the black and white throw, too – the ideal piece for updating an armchair for the A/W season and keeping cosy on these cold autumn days!ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-5Alright, so I know I just said the hand-painted bowls were my favorite but I think it’s going to have to be a tie with these candle holders. I mean, aren’t they just fantastic?! They look like could be a Scandi classic yet are only $3.99. AMAZING!ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-6These dish towels make for stylish kitchen upgrades. I’d also consider framing two side-by-side for an affordable art display. Sadly, my NYC apartment doesn’t have space for the gorgeous dining table (below) – I love the causal feel with the dining table. Which pieces from IKEA’s SÄLLSKAP collection of black & green decor are you loving?ikea-black-green-furniture-decorative-accessories-sallskap-7 // Photography by IKEA; used with permission

  1. Eeeeeeeeeep! I need to get myself to IKEA as soon as I can! I love all of this!!

  2. This is all sooooo good! Its such a shame the limited editions never come to Toronto! Do they come to NYC? If so, I might have to do an IKEA trip when i finally get my butt to the city.


    • @Didier – Right, sooooo good! Yes, the SÄLLSKAP collection is on sale here in the US so I’m guessing it should be in Canada too? Fingers crossed for you! 🙂

  3. WOW – Ikea just keeps getting better and better – lovely stuff, gotta go to Ikea again soon – not sure the Mr. is going to approve, but never mind, I’ll happily go alone 😉
    Have a fab week Will,
