Highlight self-care with the Marimekko x IKEA BASTUA Collection
Since we’ve gotten back into the swing of things post-pandemic such as going to the office, attending live shows and making the most of our weekends in the great outdoors, our self-care routines definitely need a recalibration. But, apart from re-incorporating it into our day-to-day lives because of necessity, self-care also needs to be a soothing and enjoyable series of habits. Enter IKEA’s BASTUA collection in collaboration with Finnish lifestyle brand Marimekko. The two forces draw from their shared Nordic history and sauna culture to offer consumers 29 items that enable the joys of self-care.
According to IKEA’s Home Report, they discovered that against global statistics, 79% of Filipinos aim to prioritize physical and emotional self-care. Meanwhile, 70% look to improve their home lives. The drop comes definitely in handy as last March 9, members of the press, IKEA wellness ambassadors and influencers headed to the Pasay branch to exclusively preview the BASTUA collection.
Surfaces for your space
Whether keeping your surroundings minimalist or adding pops of color to spaces you hang out in often, the BASTUA collection provides different pieces that improve surfaces and spaces. For example, the BASTUA bench and side table are made of solid birch and birch veneer, bringing a touch of Nordic minimalism. Meanwhile, colored items from the collection are the to-die-for floor cushions accentuated by rhubarb leaves, plus the blue and orange BASTUA cushions best for a splash of hues on solid-colored couches and beds.
Everyday zen items
Who says you need to stay home for self-care? Marimekko and IKEA encourage consumers to bring the reminder even while on the go. Limited edition shopping bags come in three BASTUA designs, such as the red and green rhubarb print, the calming blue and green pattern, or the pink and orange stripes. Stay stylishly hydrated with the BASTUA stainless steel water bottles in two different patterns.
These unique pieces not only zhuzh up your space or outfit but also constantly remind you that there’s something to celebrate with self-care. So, chase those sparks of joy with the help of the Marimekko x IKEA BASTUA collection!
The BASTUA collection by Marimekko and IKEA is available in IKEA Philippines, Pasay City. Shop the items until stocks run out!
