Eco-Chic: 6 Favorite Finds from Ikea’s April Collections

April 4, 2019

This month, Ikea introduces two new collections for spring—Tänkvärd, as well as their April releases—inspired by natural materials, self-care, and sustainability. As usual, the high-design, low-budget offerings don’t disappoint (and many are made from the trendiest material of the spring: bamboo).

Here’s what we’re coveting, including three woven lamps we all want.

All of us on the Remodelista team are admiring the trio of Knixhult lamps, available as pendant light ($39.99), floor lamp ($49.99), and table lamp ($.99). All three are designed with minimal waste in mind, woven using the darker types of bamboo that are usually discarded.

A subtly striped Tänkvärd Rug is $.99 for the 3-foot-by-8-foot size.
