Spokesperson Spotlight: Creating the perfect atmosphere in the home with tips from IKEA’s Eva Nikoglou

Press release   •   Sep 26, 2019 12:30 BST


My name’s Eva Nikoglou and I’m the sales leader for lighting and electronics at IKEA UK and Ireland. I’m passionate about what a difference incorporating the right light and sound systems into your home can make to its atmosphere, so want to share my top tips with you.

From WiFi speakers to smart lighting and wireless charging, IKEA has a number of solutions for life at home that integrates technology into home furnishings that are easy to use and are affordable for the many people.

Sound is integral to creating the right atmosphere at home and giving a space life and soul. When you play music with the ENEBY Bluetooth speakers, you get a clear and powerful sound, no matter where you place it in the room. Install it with the soft fabric on the outside for a classic look or turn it around and expose the speakers for a minimalist vibe. The speakers are brilliantly versatile as they can be mounted onto stands, wall brackets, placed in IKEA’s KALLAX and EKET storage systems or fixed with an additional battery pack to make them portable.

I love the SYMFONISK table lamp as this combines two hugely important elements for creating the right mood at home – sound and light - into one product. Created in collaboration with Sonos, the WiFi speaker incorporates high quality sound with great design, providing you with a stylish piece of furniture that blends into the home in a new way.

For those looking to an introduction to smart lighting, I would recommend the TRÅDFRI range as the starter kit includes a gateway, a remote control and two smart light bulbs. With this kit you can connect your lights and control them with a phone or smart assistant including turning it on and off and diming it as you need to set the right mood. It also comes in a range of nine colours including the classic white, so you can add different tones that reflect your personal style.

Please do let me know if you'd like any tips on sound and lighting or expert commentary to support what you’re working on, as I'd be happy to help. To explore more new wonders visit
