SS20 Trend Alert: Refined Zen

Hi there,

Embrace the sophisticated fusion of Japanese elegance and scandi simplicity in the home this summer with IKEA’s SS20 trend Refined Zen.

Emulating an ambience of refined and relaxed tranquillity this trend combines calming tones, natural materials and clean lines, instilling a sense of effortless harmony within the home.

Understated and open design presents an aura of meditative reflection, with functional space-saving features and stylish sustainable solutions, providing a practical and beautiful space that works for you.

Rosheen Forbes, Commercial Activity & Events Leader at IKEA UK & Ireland, says:

“In today’s modern world, we are increasingly looking for an idyllic oasis to turn to in our homes, especially in the spring and summer months. The Refined Zen trend is all about taking a deep breath and injecting a calm, fresh approach and sense of balance to one’s space, embracing the harmonious spirit of the season.”

“Soft pastel hues including neo mint and tranquil dawn exude a composed and peaceful atmosphere, providing a neutral canvas for simple and elegant touches.”

“Incorporating sustainable and renewable materials such as bamboo and wood help diffuse a natural spirit, with beautiful raw textures and craftmanship adding character. Create both openness and privacy with the NORDKISA wardrobe, combining scandi clean lines with an oriental influence. In addition, woven bamboo will reinforce a strong yet elegant tactile element, with the KNIXHULT and SINNERLIG lamps’ natural colour variations adding depth.”

“Furthermore, maximise usable space whilst incorporating a minimalist feel with the PLATSA series of customisable, high quality, modular storage units -perfect for homes with less space. Combine these in a multitude of ways to create a personal and unique solution adaptable to you, allowing yourself to relax in a decluttered and organised haven.”
