Since 1976 IKEA has been bringing its sophisticated Scandinavian style and propensity for modern furniture to households across Canada. Now, after 41 years and countless iconic pieces, IKEA is going to the dogs.
The new line, LURVIG, the Swedish word for furry, offers some purr-fect solutions for stylish homes with pets. The complete line includes pet beds, collars, leashes, feeding bowls, mats and furniture – all meant to fit into your home with seamless style.
The prints and designs are nothing less than you’d expect of IKEA – with prominent colours that are on trend. The basics – black and white – are complemented by the punchy and popular green and orange items. Working with some of their most popular furniture lines, they’ve extended the designs into LURVIG so that your cat’s bed slides into your KALLAX shelving unit for a perfect fit and your dog’s bed is a miniature version of you KLIPPAN loveseat – even folding out to extend the bed for more room, just the way your loveseat folds out to a bed.
Patterns and prints pop with IKEA’s signature style – stylized graphics, clean lines and modern shapes. Meanwhile, intelligent design allows you to modify pieces and choose what type of mount – wall, floor or on legs – best accommodates your space. The cat scratch mat wraps around any table leg, instead of the typical scratching post – an eyesore that takes up way too much space.
