the vingsön chair from ikea is leading the trend in outdoor furniture
IKEA is best known for its interior icons (from the KALLAX to the BILLY), but now it’s about to become even more associative with the great outdoors.
The Swedish powerhouse has already blessed us with a host of Scandi-cool spring pieces and canvases for our IKEA tips, but their new VINGSÖN wing chair is destined to become a fashionable focal point beyond your own four walls. This versatile piece knows how to make a statement in both your living room and patio – and we expect it to be the best. garden trends this S/S’22.
The contemporary throne, which is compared to a ‘beautiful peacock’ by IKEA, may be able to make a statement thanks to its stylized wings and generous shape – but it also celebrates some of the biggest color trends of the moment.
While shades of gray have already dominated the paint world for many seasons, VINGSÖN suggests that this tone isn’t going anywhere fast – thanks to its dark gray tones that are perfect for an urban garden.
IKEA adds that the chair’s decorative textile rope weave and slender wood “give the chair an expression that goes both outdoors and indoors.”
However, while it’s easy to fall for IKEA’s VINGSÖN chair, the Scandinavian brand is not exclusive in its admiration for this emerging trend. Wayfair’s Resident Style Advisor Nadia McCowan Hill also suggests these staples will dominate interior design trends inside – and outside the house.
“The days of simple garden furniture serving a purpose are over, as we embrace our outdoor spaces as a true extension of our home, making the most of every corner to relax and unwind,” says Nadia.
Just as on-trend chairs are a conversation starter in your home, the style expert adds that outdoor chairs can have the same impact on your outdoor space. “Especially given the dynamic range of styles, shapes and materials to choose from,” she adds.
If you are looking to invest in the trend of fashionable armchairs, we suggest you start with VINGSÖN. While it’s not (fully) hackable, we still can’t get enough of its striking aesthetic. Your new favorite garden trend starts at the IKEA warehouse.
