Breathe Easy—IKEA's Latest Collection Drop Is All About Self-Care



For those in need of a bit of self-care, don't head to the spa or a resort. Instead, look no further than IKEA's latest collection of home décor. Dubbed TÄNKVÄRD, the line is all about easy living and a casual, effortless approach to home décor. Go back to basics through soothing furniture and textiles made of natural and sustainable materials. Think furnishings made of the ever-popular rattan and textiles created with linen and cotton fabrics.

"This collection is all about self-care; embracing what is calming, pleasing, relaxing," IKEA designer Akanksha Deo says in a recent press release. "It's about going back to basic human needs," she continues. Think rattan benches and room dividers, patterned throws and duvet covers, wicker baskets, and flatwoven rugs.

"TÄNKVÄRD blends Scandinavian freshness with Japanese calmness," Deo explains. "The result is perfectly imperfect: pieces that are a bit wrinkled with a pre-worn handicraft feel, making each piece unique," she adds. Ahead, shop 15 products from IKEA's new collection and carve out some time for a bit of self-care.
