I have to say, sometimes Ikea products look much better in the catalogue. I’ve already spoken about the Ikea PS 2012 “Ikea’s new eco design vintage collection” but after having had the chance to examine the Ikea PS 2012 collection, I have to say that some items were a little disappointing.
For instance, the floor light Ikea PS 2012 looks a bit odd, it’s only 66 cm high and the material of the lampshade looks cheap, it looks a bit like cheap mosquito net. I can only picture it in a little girl’s extremely girly bedroom but in my opinion it’s not worth it (119 euros in Italy). On the other hand, the Ikea PS 2012 pendant light looks good and the real added value are the range of colours (blue and yellow being my favorite). The best piece is definitely the outdoor chair by Wiebke Braasch.
The Raskog trolley is not part of the PS collection but it’s worth a mention, it’s in a lovely mint green and can be used to keep a room tidy and display anything, from magazines to fabrics to kitchen bits and bobs.
