IKEA TRIP - fiona howard cards

more snaps from last weeks ikea visit today. starting with these gorgeous floral cards by fiona howard (who we've featured here before). fiona also designed the amazing sanderson wallpaper we all fell in love with recently. her art cards for ikea are sold in a pack of 5 and are single postcards ready for framing. im off the the paperchase press show today to see the launch of their new autumn and christmas products so my trusty camera will be back in action again today. see you tomorrow for a few more great ikea pics.

IKEA - wall art

also in the ikea art dept : above is an example of fiona howard's cards in a frame in one of the stores roomsets, and below more snaps of the various art cards. i especially thought the kitchen set by korpi and gordon was so cute. interestingly the figure cards are by P+P favourite lotta glave.

IKEA - children

ikea always have a bright and fun collection of patterns for children. my particular favourites were these animal characters designed by eva lundgreen.
