Half-price desks, comfortable crockery and weighted blankets

IKEA has released its fall / winter plans, outlining three themes for the season. The first is ‘global influences’, with home items like the Hostkvall throw (€ 15) aimed at meeting the needs of those who wish to embrace different cultures in their home.

‘Mys and festivities’ welcomes the return of festive festivities: think rustic interiors and feasts. We are eyeing in particular the Strala LED lights (€ 10).

“Refresh” is the final theme of the season, with “simple” updates like weighted blankets (€ 79) on the menu. Buy in store and at www.ikea.com now.
