Summer has well and truly arrived here in the UAE. The sudden spike in temperature has had me huffing and puffing my way through the days as I cart my little tribe around on the school run and beyond. This time of year always brings about a rather abrupt confrontation with the inevitable – we’ll be spending large portions of the next few months indoors. And what better place to do that than at Dubai’s world-renowned mega-malls. One might think that the IKEA part sale is perfectly timed!
Have you seen the sale? There are so many fabulous bargains up for grabs. I’ve been spending an unhealthy amount of time on their website lately, sourcing items for a few projects, and I have spotted some fabulous bargains. There may actually have been an audible ‘hell yes’ from me when I noticed that one of my favourite sofas was included in the sale. I felt inspired to deliver a little dose of living room inspiration – so here’s a contemporary monochrome mood board featuring some of my top sale picks.
1 HEKTAR PENDANT LAMP | 2 STOCKHOLM THREE SEAT SOFA | 3 UPPBO FLOOR LAMP | 4 NATTLJUS, LAPPLJUNG RUTA & ULLKAKTUS CUSHION COVERS (not all of these are on sale, but they look great together) | 5 FLADIS BASKET | 6 STOCKHOLM TV BENCH | 7 RASKMÖLLE RUG | 8 BOKSEL COFFEE TABLE
The normal cost of achieving this contemporary look would be around AED 7,200 but with so many of the featured items on sale, you can grab it all for approximately AED 5,300 – that’s a savings of AED 1,800… which is a lot of manicures and pedicures! The STOCKHOLM sofa, which is available in a variety of colours, is one of my favourite IKEA pieces and not one to be missed when on sale.
