Ikea’s Latest Photo Shoot Rocks

Happy new week! (I am sorry for my absence in blog land last week, but now I am back with more energy!). This past Friday I went to a fun evening event with a bunch of lovely ladies (Thank you Ms. Eva Delishhh!) and at 1:00 am (!) Ikea came up as a topic. The hostess’s laptop was quickly turned on and I shared some photos from one of Ikea’ s latest photo shoots (courtesy of my close & creative friend Mia from Solid Frog). And now I am sharing them with all of you.

This is Ikea, people! I think the images are absolutely gorgeous. And the stylists hit the mark by incorporating the industrial vintage trend that is so hot right now.

BRAVO Ikea! I am totally inspired by each and every image and I am so heading to that Swedish mega store this week! Maybe I will run into you there!

  • Love these images,
    as it’s exactly
    the melding of
    styles that I admire.
    I wonder where most
    of IKEA’s manufacturing
    is done? I need to
    look into it and hop
    on over there! Thanks
    for the inspiration
    to make a field trip,
    xx Suzanne

  • Erica says:

    These images are lovely. I”m definitely a fan… shhh… don’t tell, my kitchen is Ikea. And some of my happiest clients have Ikea kitchens too. This is an amazing example of how the accessories are what really make the space. Have a great day Mon!! xo

  • Mon Thank you for sharing with us!! These are fantastic. Never in a million years would I have guessed these were from Ikea. My interest is sparked for sure… may end up with a weekend adventure to Ikea 😉

  • Emma says:

    Aren’t these fabulous! Love the direction Ikea is heading with this. I even sent the images on to a few clients!

  • I’m really inspired by these too. It really feels like a whole new look, one that I’m crazy about! Thanks for a great post.

  • I was just at IKEA today and was lost in the marketplace for so long…love their new blueglass collection and these pics are awesome…who needs a hem on their tablecloth? Just lovely for sure! They had a cool interiors book, too. dying over the graphite sheepskins…thanks for sharing!

  • These are great Monika! I love Ikea and I practically look at their catalogue everyday just because…:-)). I go by the Ikea here often, but they don’t seem to change the designs very often like they do in Canada and America – sigh.

    Thanks for sharing these!

  • These are just lovely! I can get lost in IKEA for hours. What a beautiful kitchen. I would be very happy to cook in there :)

    And thank you so much for your kind words earlier. I’m so happy to meet you. We have a lot of the same friends and I’m so looking forward to following along with your lovely blog.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  • I hadn’t seen any of those pics – you’re right, they’re fantastic!

  • Tereza says:

    I’m surprised by Ikea, wonderful styling and photographies.

  • Heehee..! These are all STUNNING. I was there yesterday, actually. Drove all the way to Atlanta just to look at some rugs in person. I do love some of their things – affordable and with great design lines…

    Sending you much love,
