Shopper’s Diary: New PS Collection from Ikea

From Julie & Francesca:

Last January, Emma’s Design Blogg posted a first look at the new PS Collection from Ikea, setting off a chain reaction on the web. We were pleased to finally see the whole lot on display at last week’s ICFF; even more appealing (and covetable) in person than expected. An Ikea representative told us that the collection will be available in select US stores (New York, San Francisco, Chicago, LA) in August (most pieces are available in Europe now). We especially like the blankets and the fabrics by the yard by Japanese textile designer Kazuyo Nomura.
