A couple of days ago IKEA launched their new collection NORNÄS, which is a back-to-basics kind of move for IKEA. Made in Sweden from Swedish pine, this collection of furniture has a very simple, pared back and truly Nordic style.
The Scandinavian pine it self is a timber with lots of knots and natural irregularities, in the Nordic countries associated with construction timber, saunas and log cabins. On these furniture pieces you can either keep it natural and rustic, or stain or paint to your hearts desires.
I really like the shape of the leg details and can see some of these items look fabulous stained jet black. ( a look I am crazy about at the moment). Loving the benches with the sheepskin on top and the interesting headboard.
Check out the full range here, no doubt it will be a while before available in Australia, if ever:)
