Ikea’s upcoming collection wants to help you spring clean in style

The Borstad line emphasizes natural materials

It’s not enough for a broom to be just a broom anymore. Today,
even the most quotidian of objects can be an aesthetic
statement—if you want them to be. Take, for example, Ikea’s
upcoming line of cleaning and organizational products that lean
into rustic style.

The Borstad collection spans a range of tidying products, from
metal dust pans to canvas hanging organizers to rattan carpet
beaters. There’s a metal wash basin that feels straight out of
the 19th century, and a plastic water bottle that looks like it
could be made from vintage green glass. All of the items have a
similar old time-y feel that evokes a “you could find this in
your grandma’s basement” kind of charm.

Stylistic musings aside, many of the items in the collection are
handy. We’re eyeing the versatile rattan laundry basket and a
canvas shoe bag for travel. There’s also an old-school broom made
from palm leaves in case you’re looking to trade out the
synthetic number you picked up at CVS for something a little more
natural. In fact, the whole collection embraces natural materials,
like hardwood, cedar, metal, rattan and canvas.

The Borstad collection will be available starting in
February.
