Celebrate the Rugby World Cup with IKEA

With the Rugby World Cup kicking off this September, it is a great opportunity to refresh your home interiors and tackle the tricky task of making room for extra guests. From stylish additional seating for having friends over to watch the big game, to the latest smart tech in sound, IKEA has a fantastic range of affordable products to help you experience the excitement of the games in your own home.

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

‘With big sporting events can often come an increased number of guests to your home, whether this is to watch the game or celebrate a big win. The NISSE folding chair is perfect for creating extra seating space,  its sturdy structure can be folded away when your guests have left, making it perfect for smaller homes. When entertaining, it is a must to have drinks and snacks aplenty. The FRAMKALLA tray, with its striking design, will help you serve your guests in style while keeping the conversation going.

If you prefer to enjoy the excitement of the match on a smaller scale, you may want to think about making your living room more comfortable for the extra hours of viewing. The sleek design of the POÄNG armchair is perfect for sitting back and relaxing in, and its removable cover means that you can change it to create a different look and feel. If you are looking to improve the sound quality from your TV, our new SYMFONISK speakers in collaboration with Sonos, will help you create the perfect sports experience.’
