When winter’s darkness falls and the temperature drops, it’s the perfect time to adopt hygge, the Danish concept of celebrating cosiness, warmth and family. At this time of year, it’s tempting to retreat to hibernating indoors to get comfy, however, enjoying your outside space shouldn’t be limited to the summer months. With some simple changes, your outside space can provide a wonderful backdrop to celebrate hygge and togetherness in the cooler months.
Lisa Bradshaw, Sales Leader for Outdoor Furniture, IKEA UK and Ireland says:
“Winter provides plenty of lovely opportunities to celebrate our homes; although many forget this includes our outdoor spaces. Why not gather friends and family and throw a winter barbecue, hosting your guests with IKEA’s beautiful ÄPPLARÖ table and chairs, made from sustainably sourced acacia. Its natural wood is also pre-treated with several layers of semi-transparent wood stain, ensuring that it lasts through the sometimes-harsh winter weather. To create extra style and comfort for your guests, you can easily attach FRÖSÖN/DUVHOLMEN water repellent chair cushions.”
“Outdoor lighting is essential to create the right atmosphere and bring a cosy feeling to your outside space. MULLBACKA LED table lamps are perfect for creating an intimate and inviting space with their soft hue that will emit a warm glow. To add a little fun, hang IKEA’s SOLVINDEN LED lighting chain at a height, adding a pop of colour against the night sky.”
“Dark winter nights also provide the perfect opportunity for stargazing, and the cooler weather shouldn’t deter you. Snuggle up under IKEA’s soft INGRUN throw next to the BROKÖ fire basket, which will keep you nice and toasty. A mug of hot chocolate or mulled wine is always an excellent accompaniment, served in IKEA’s sustainable and durable TALRIKA mug.”
