Keep your home interiors in check with IKEA

Hi there,

Checks, tartan and plaids were everywhere at Autumn/Winter fashion week, making a bold appearance at some of the most prominent catwalk shows.

Being one of the most highly anticipated trends of the season, this striking pattern will be making its interior design comeback, and there are numerous ways of incorporating this heritage print into your home with a great range of affordable and stylish products at IKEA.

Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Leader at IKEA UK and Ireland says:

“Checks are synonymous with Autumn and Winter, emulating a traditional, welcoming atmosphere. Incorporating patterned textiles, such as IKEA’s RUTIG tablecloth or cosy MOSSRUTA bedding will help create an ambience of homeliness and warmth, with the ALMALIE throw being the perfect snug solution to wrap up in during those cooler evenings.”

“Thanks to its bold pattern, check products also bode well for adding a focal point to your space, drawing in the eye against a more muted backdrop. IKEA’s TORSEBRO wing chair, for example, features a lovely combination of subtle shades of grey and blue mixed with an iconic and classic design. This works well for those who want to embrace this sophisticated print, without their interiors feeling too overwhelmed.”

“Whilst checks are often viewed in the more rustic and traditional sense, they can also be used to create a more dramatic, modern look. For example, the contrasting monochrome print on IKEA’s SVALLERUP rug will be sure to make a distinct, eye-catching statement in any room.”
