SS20 Trend Alert: Vintage Havana

Hi there,

Embrace the colours, architecture and vibrant street life of Cuba into your home this summer with IKEA’s SS20 trend Vintage Havana. The rich, vivid Cuban colour palette packs a punch, as does the eclectic mix of patterns — from abstract graphic to exotic tropical.

This trend is about bright patterns, vibrant tones and retro influences, embracing the relaxed yet vibrant street life atmosphere this season.

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

“Vintage Havana embodies the culture of Cuba with its adventurous spirit and welcoming energy. Relaxed design sits alongside faded glamour to mimic Havana, a city that remains frozen in time.”

“Blurring the lines between your inside and outside space will help bring this trend to life within your home and make the most of the warmer temperatures in the spring and summer months. Mimicking the shapes, beauty and colours of nature within your interiors as well as focusing on dressing your outside space will help achieve this look. Try draping the SVARTRÅ outdoor LED lights within the greenery in your outdoor space to capture that inviting glow of the Havana streets. For a plush and comfortable outdoor setting in which to kick back on warm summer nights, add some throw cushions to your garden sofa such as the sunny yellow LJUV cushion”.

“Natural objects, paired with vibrant colours such as green, orange and gold are perfect ways to bring your outside into the home. The colours in the LJUV rug are reminiscent of a pink Havana sunset, and paired with the lifelike artificial FEJKA plant pot, the combination brings a stunning touch of the tropics to your home”.

“Shades of aquamarine and deep purples add pops of vibrancy, while fresh leafy palm prints and plants create a sun-soaked tropical look in your home. Add the SOMMAR 2020 cushion and FLOTTEBO sofa bed to your living room to feel the heat and sounds of the city.”

“Capture those poetic summer moments where time just stops with the BUSKBO rattan chair and SOLBLEKT cushion, featuring an eye-catching, tropical print that is sure to make your space sing”.
