What's new in the IKEA Showroom: a working-resting-living room
Our interior designers have furnished another space in the Showroom. It is a living room with a work area and a balcony that “belongs” to a 35-year-old illustrator and photographer living together with his wife. Would you like to explore their interior? Take a virtual tour now or be our guest later! You can visit this room on the 2nd floor of the IKEA Vilnius store.
A modern touch
When you need to fit two different rooms into one, choosing neutral shades and colour-coordinated furniture is always a better decision. This is why the interior of this working-living room is furnished in modern style and features a calm combination of white, grey and beige.
Ready to work, ready to rest
For those who work from home, comfort is the key. But if you work from the living room, feeling comfortable goes together with keeping your spot tidy and organised. There are two ALEX drawer units on castors placed next to the desk to prevent different items from piling on surfaces. The drawers can hide all the clutter and even a laptop when it is no longer needed. When it’s time for a break, the NISSAFORS trolley rolls on the stage. It is just perfect for storing some water bottles, tea or snacks next to the desk. Would rather take your break on the balcony? Go ahead! All you have to do is move the trolley filled with delicacies there.
Within reach and sight
There is no need to hide each and every item inside drawers. Just keep the things you use on a daily basis within reach – on SKÅDIS pegboards or BERGSHULT/TRANHULT shelves. Mount as many of them as you need above the desk and leave some space for SVENSÅS memo boards. These are ideal for writing down all your brilliant thoughts or taking some notes for the next day.
The “living” part of the room
The FRIHETEN sofa-bed has many duties in this room. It provides a spot for relaxation, welcomes guests, converts into a bed, has a storage space underneath, and is even used for working – in a duo with BYLLAN laptop support.
“In the home of creative people, things can be used ignoring their primary function. Here, the DIGNITET curtain wire was turned into a display of photos, sketches and drawings.”
Kotryna Meškauskaitė, IKEA interior designer
A place to recharge
Don’t forget to take breaks during the workday – it actually does wonders for your productivity and creativity. In this home, a comfy spot to relax is set up on the balcony. Equipped with SVANÖ arbor bench and INNERSKÄR/OTTERÖN pouffes, it is always ready to welcome someone who wants to put their feet up. The KRYDDPEPPAR plant stand here serves as a coffee table, SOLVINDEN lighting chains and lush greenery provides cosiness, while OMAR shelving unit with boxes keeps the place organised.
