Elegant, a contemporary mix of mid-century designs and nature inspired hues, a grown-up look for stylish urban homes – voilà, that’s what comes to my mind when I look at the brand new Stockholm 2013 collection by Ikea which will hit the stores as of April. My second thought is: perfect timing as I am planning a little living room redo this spring.
Design, materials and colours for grown-ups
The new collection is the upscale line in Ikea’s broad assortment of furniture and home accessories and has a strong design angle – every piece seems consciously designed and aimed at a grown-up clientele. Refined materials such as velvet, shagreen, nut wood and bone china underline the collection’s sophisticated approach and please the the visual as well as tactile senses. The colour range transmits a timeless idea of interior design with cues from nature such as green, various brown hues like cognac, chocolate, mud and others, but also yellow, mustard, black.
Paying due respect to its name and Ikea origin, this collection is strongly influenced by classic Scandinavian design and makes reference to the stylish 50s and 60s of the past century. The Stockholm 2013 collection focuses on the living room, dining room and bedroom and is accomplished by selected decoration items.
My personal highlights are the soft green sofa, the round mirror with nut wood framing, the green vase and bright yellow cabinet – now I only need to decide what to pick for my living room redo. I sort of have an idea already…
What do you think of the new Stockholm 2013 collection by Ikea?
Fabulous, I LOVE Ikea and you are right, this is a ‘grown up’ collection – I have heard people say that Ikea looks more like furniture for a college dorm room etc. but I disagree. I think its always stylish and this collection is chic.
The green sofa is divine!
Wow! This looks great. I’m curreltly seeking for similar chairs. This ones would fit perfect. Hopefully they are going to sell it also in California. California always has some “extrawurst” requirements.
I wish you would’ve shown a close-up of the chandelier which for me seems to be the most interesting piece of that collection.
So interesting collection. I love the dinning chairs and the mirrors.

And if you google Ikea Stockholm 2013 you will get a LOT of different photos.
I personally really liked your choises of photos Igor! I really want some yellow in my living room this spring/summer.
YUM – I love all Ikea Stockholm. These have been inspired by the cool scandi design out there – love it.
Happy Easter my friend, hope you have a super time,
Well, I’m a complete sucker for green sofas – it would have to be that!!
I love your feedbacks & favorites! Seems like Ikea has done a good job with the Stockholm 2013 collection! Happy Easter everyone!
I so love that mirror. Much more sophisticated then usual ikea fare. Is it going to be available in the US?
Haven’t found any info on the US launch, but I assume it will be available as the old Stockholm collection was launched in the USA, too. So fingers crossed! And that mirror is on my shopping list, too!
This mirror has a very interesting design, a little timeless.
Obsessed with the emerald green couch! Also loving the white version of that service cabinet. Good job, Ikea!
Wow, sophisticated or what? Am with Raina here, unusual for Ikea… and much appreciated:-))
Have a fabulous Easter Break Mr Igor!!
This collection is interesting! I really like the muted colors, with pops of brighter shades. The green sofa is just “the perfect” green – joyful, but not overwhelming. Also like the mirror, so “fifties sophisticated”!
It’s got to be the yellow cabinet for me.. and the round retro mirror. Great to see Ikea doing something a little different to their usual style.
Παρα πολύ ωραία κομμάτια… για κατσε γιατι εχω καιρό να τσεκάρω το ΙΚΕΑ.
