I’ve decided that my next purchase for the home is definitely going to have to be the black and white striped beauty that is Ikea’s Stockholm rug. There’s really nothing much more chic than black and white stripes, but on top of its $199 price point, it’s really a no-brainer. Okay, so maybe it should be called “design on two thousand dimes” but I’d still buy it! I’ve literally been seeing this rug everywhere, from Pinterest to design magazines like Elle Décor and House Beautiful and I’ve been swooning ever since. I’m thinking that the nearly 6 by 8 foot rug is going to look absolutely perfect underneath my dining room table in my new apartment.
What I love the most about this rug is that black and white stripes literally look good anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you’ve decorated in mostly blue, green or radiant orchid, it’ll still go great on top of the Stockholm rug. I’m really also in love with the contrasting contrast (I just blew your mind, didn’t I?) with the offset stripes.
Not too long ago I saw a super similar rug by the fabulously chic Madeline Weinrib, but it’s also about ten times more expensive than the equally as cute Ikea version. They’re both wool, although Madeline’s boasts Sardinian and New Zealand wool, but I’d be down for a Weinrib look on a Jon Peters budget!
Most of my favorite designer rooms that I’ve seen using Ikea’s black and white striped Stockholm rug are mid-century modern or rooms with a monochromatic look. Either way, this rug looks great for any Scandinavian-inspired interior design. I love a mostly monochromatic look with a splash of color, be it through artwork, throw pillows or plants. In fact, if I could possibly start over in my own home, I’d totally create a fun black and white home office workspace.
