Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal - the perfect time to give your Ektorp a brand new look. Here we’ve styled an Ektorp in an unlikely combination of three warm colours - yellow, orange and pink. Start by covering it in Circus Yellow by up-and-coming Scandinavian designer Littlephant. Next, add cushions in Rose and Chestnut. Now you have it - a classic sofa updated with a contemporary designer palette.
Does any colour say spring more than green? For inspiration, we go straight to the source - the forest. We’ve covered this Ektorp in Belgian Linen Tea Green - a natural pastel that’s more sophisticated than sweet. Get a graphic look by keeping cushions in solid shades of white and grey. It’s the perfect combination for an eternally fresh spring feeling.
Ektorp + Stripes = a Swedish match made in heaven. Give this classic duo a modern twist by choosing our wider Stockholm Stripe. In keeping with one of this season’s hot colours, opt for a popular shade of grey blue (we like Mineral Blue!). And since blue on blue tones are very on-trend, we’ve added Steel Blue and Mineral Blue cushions to pull this Ektorp look together.
