Still looking for a larger dining and kitchen table myself, I am always interested in the new IKEA collections, I saw some pretty new tables in the temporary store in Milan where Paola Navone transformed a simple Metod kitchen into a vibrant Italian family style kitchen and lets not forget the new collection by Ilse Crawford for IKEA, you can find both posts on the blog Metod X Paola Navone | IKEA Temporary Milan and Cork & Greens | IKEA Temporary
This August IKEA releases Skogsta, a collection kitchen and dining pieces made of solid acacia wood, adding a warm touch to the kitchen, I have to see for myself if I love the small pieces of wood the collection is build of for a table or bench, as for me this technic so far is used in traditional chopping boards. I can see the pieces ageing in a beautiful way though and winning character over the years.... Still on holidays I will certainly go and have a look at all the new things coming out this month.
