As IKEA strives to create a more sustainable future, the collection features materials sourced from natural resources.
'Playing natural materials and textures is a fantastic way to update your space, and bring the tranquillity and serenity of outside, inside!' exclaims Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Leader from IKEA UK and Ireland.
'Sustainable materials such as rattan and sea grass are effective and versatile. An ideal way of opening up spaces and adding a raw bohemian freshness to any room.'
