I’m working my way through some IKEA posts that I promised a couple weeks ago after I visited the Cincinnati-area store.
I’m focused today on the expansion of the wonderfully adaptable, clean-lined Hemnes series to the living room. The bookcase at right is $180 and shown in black-brown.
I love Hemnes. In the past, it has been one of IKEA’s best-selling bedroom series. I think it’s because it’s simple and classic. It can go modern or blend with more traditional furnishings. It’s cheap – $149 for a four-drawer dresser – and comes in several colors.
Now, IKEA has introduced some new HEMNES pieces for the living areas of the house. Check out the fantastic entertainment center below, shown in the new color brown-gray. It was on display at the Cincinnati store.
The combination below would cost $1,309, which isn’t too bad for an entire wall of storage!
My favorite new HEMNES piece is actually the sofa bench, which was on display at several room displays in the Cincinnati store.
The table comes in several colors, including white, as shown above. The sofa table is $169.
There are so many more HEMNES pieces. Some are completely new styles. Others are new colors to liven up previous models. You can see them all here.
I picked out just a few of these HEMNES furnishings to whet your appetite:
Clockwise, starting top left: Glass-door cabinet with four drawers in brown-gray, $365; narrow glass door cabinet in white, $250; linen cabinet in red, $249; eight-drawer dresser in blue, $299; side table in black-brown, $70.
