Spring cleaning will soon be less of a chore, as IKEA is introducing a limited-edition collection filled with cleaning tools to keep each nook and cranny polished yet stylish.
The new range is called BORSTAD, the Swedish word for “brush,” and entails “eco-conscious” cleaning items from materials like hardwood, rattan, cedar, canvas and metal for a “rustic” quality.
Aside from looking pretty, these functional accessories take inspiration from traditional techniques in order to help complete routines in households all over the world.
The BORSTAD collection is scheduled to bring a spring in your step when it rolls out in the US in February 2020. Preview its pieces below.
