If you weren’t already obsessed with homeware at the start of 2020, we’re willing to assume that you are now. Still, after spending inordinate amounts of time in our spaces, it’s understandable if you’re beginning to think your living area or bedroom decor is becoming a little stale. Rest assured, then, you needn’t reach for the paintbrush or invest in costly furniture to give your home an update. Sometimes, the smallest things that have the power to alter your perspective completely—and that can certainly be said of this trending homeware buy.
Another thing we’ve spent inordinate amounts of time doing these last few months is scrolling on Instagram, and we soon began to realise that there was one particular piece that was following us on the platform: an Arket blanket.
Devotees of the minimal style hotspot will already know that Arket boasts a thoughtful interiors edit, featuring sleek vases, plates, glassware, and textiles. However, the brand’s standout homeware buy is undoubtedly a blanket featuring a stylised foliage motif, which comes in an array of colours. Made exclusively for Market by Swedish woollen mill, Klippan Yllefabrik, it’s a thing of beauty that has caught the eye of many an interior enthusiast this year. So much so, our friends at Arket say it has been an unexpected best-seller, having sold out more times than anyone could have predicted. We think there are two reasons for this: 1) it’s chic, of course. And 2) wrapping yourself in its soft, cosy goodness is the closest thing you can get to having a cuddle with a loved one at the moment.
The ultimate sofa and bed updater, the interesting motif will breathe a new lease of life into pared-back furniture or old bedding, without breaking the bank. We don’t know about you, but we can’t think of anything we’d rather spend our Christmas money on than something that’ll keep us toasty throughout winter. However, as it’s track record would suggest, the latest drop of this Arket blanket won’t stick around for long.
