Currently Coveting: Ikea’s New Wicker Collection for Summer

After a successful bonding trip to Ikea last week, my friend Stephanie and I were putting our loot on the checkout belt when she happened to glance over at a nearby table with a messy pile of nondescript woven seagrass things.

“Wait,” Stephanie said.

The conveyor belt stopped. The store clerk and I watched Stephanie zip over to the table, grab a woven thing, and unfold it to reveal a very large, beautifully proportioned, beach bag with handles. The price? $4.99.

I got one too.

The woven bag, it turned out, is part of a new Nipprig outdoor living collection–including furniture, plant baskets, and wall hooks–that arrived in stores this month. Here are our favorite pieces:
