The Dane’s are coming! Yes, after the Swedish Ikea invasion, the latest Scandinavian chain to make inroads into the UK market is ILVA, which is pitching itself as an upmarket Ikea, but without a massive hike in prices.
So far there’s a branch in Thurrock and a new one in Manchester – and they’ve got some very nice design. Annoyingly for most of the country, they don’t do sales via the website – so you have to go into one of these two stores.
If you’re in the area, it‘s worth taking a closer look at the Funghi lamp. Funghi for good reason – it’s a glass lamp shaped like a mushroom, with a diameter of 25cm and available in white (as pictured) and red.
A great item if you’re after that space age look. It’s priced at £30.
