IKEA’s new 2017 summer line has hit the shelves, both in stores and online, and it’s about to inspire all your summer plans. Thanks to the SOMMAR 2017 collection, al fresco dinner parties can come together almost effortlessly. Everything you need for your perf pop-up dining room is here, right down to solar-powered decorative lighting that will keep the party going late into the night.


Like the recently released JASSA collection, SOMMAR continues to emphasize natural materials, as seen in the furniture, paper string lights and SOLVINDEN solar-powered pendants ($9+). Lightweight folding chairs, tables, and hammocks let you make yourself at home wherever you go, whether it’s to the beach, the woods, or your own backyard.


Feast your eyes on the colorful SOMMAR textiles, and take note of the particularly gorg fabrics by the yard ($5) that are perfect for a makeshift tent to keep you out of the sun. Beach towels ($13), table cloths ($15), cushion covers ($6), and picnic baskets ($10) come in bright batik- and ikat-inspired colors and patterns that have a boho vibe to set just the right relaxed tone for summer. Stamped ceramic, wavy lines, and celadon colors give dinnerware like cups ($3), bowls ($), and plates ($4-$15) a casual, handcrafted look and feel.


The IKEA SOMMAR collection is in stores now, but only for a limited time. Make a day of it and visit the giant blue and yellow warehouse nearest you, or check out the full line on IKEA’s website.
