Strandmon Wing chair IKEA

10.06.2022

Strandmon wing chair from IKEA is an old classic from the 50's, in the 50's it was called MK, when it was relaunched in 2012 the name was changed to Strandmon. 

This is what Strandmon looked like in the 50s, it is 70 years ago and you understand why it is back, beautiful, clean and comfortable. It was also on the cover of the first IKEA catalog that came out.

Strandmon is available in 8 different covers, Nordvalla dark gray, Järstad brown, Skiftebo yellow, Djuparp dark green, Kelinge beige, Kvillsfors dark blue/blue, Grann/Bomstad dark brown and Vibberbo black/beige. I have not filmed all the variants, but I will post them when I find them at an IKEA department store.  

If you want to rest your legs, you should of course buy an Ottoman. There is also a Strandmon for children. It is available in 2 colors, Dottered turquoise and Vissle gray.

"Breakfast Room Green is the most cheerful of all our greens, remaining lively in both bright sunlight or softer candlelight. Named after the usually east facing rooms designed for eating the first meal of the day, it is particularly beautiful in the dawn light."

"This strong architectural grey is named after the lead often used by fishermen to weight their lines. Plummett intensifies in colour in smaller spaces and has a strikingly modern feel which is conducive to minimal living."

"This mid-century modern green is a darker version of the much loved archive colour, Olive. Perfect for those who want to embrace stronger colour in the home, its sober tone creates rooms that feel calm and serene - especially when combined with soft pinks and browns." Bancha has good reviews, 84% recommend this color on Farrow & Ball's website.
