There have been a couple of interior announcements we have been dying to share with you guys, and now that August is drawing to a close we can finally let you in on some of the latest lifestyle news.
H&M’s New Launch
First up, high street heroes H&M are about to launch their first-ever collection of furniture. Although they have yet to set up an interiors offering in any of the Irish stores, you know you can order everything online. Here’s a sneak peek at the pieces you’ll be able to purchase over the next few weeks.
In keeping with their usual Scandi-style, all the furniture is minimalist and modern, affordable and bang on trend. Keep an eye on H&M Home for more.
IKEA’s August Updates
IKEA’s new arrivals have us giddy this month. They’ve taken a new eye to storage (always a hot topic with us) and have created loads of new ingenious ways to keep and collect your valuables.
Take this kitchen unit, for example. Their new VADHOLMA was inspired by the style of an old bakery or butcher shop. The kitchen island has a real butcher block look, even though it’s made with engineered wood that uses a layer of solid oak on top of particle board. The hanging hooks, removable shelves and drawer units optimise storage. We love it.

We are also digging their new luxe tap (have you read our latest piece on learning to love your kitchen again? Because we think this might be the key). The INSJÖN tap is brass with a porcelain handle and, like all IKEA taps, it’s water-saving so you can feel good about treating yourself to this kitchen essential.
