Sneak Peak: Best of Ikea’s New Kitchen Tools for Gardeners Who Cook

Michelle Slatalla January 12, 2015

We got a sneak peek at Ikea’s best new kitchen tools for gardeners who cook, and we like what we see. Ikea’s in-house German designer Wiebke Braasch mixed woods and metal for a clean Scandinavian look. Says Braasch: “I’ve always been influenced by and attracted to the Swedish culture and design process, and sometimes I think it’s an advantage that I can see their style with fresh eyes. It’s almost helpful being from Germany–as an ‘outsider’ I can see the whole picture.”

Braasch’s Risatorp collection–which includes a three-tier rolling trolley and a birch-handled basket–and a Rimforsa collection of mix-and-match wall storage components will arrive in U.S. Ikea stores by mid-February. 

Above: Made of bamboo and glass, mix-and-match wall components from the Rimforsa collection allow you to customize wall storage (and keep a pot of herbs handy for cooking). Among the options: a bamboo knife holder ($17.99); a holder with a two piece set of glass storage jars ($29.99); a 4-bottle set of spice jars ($16.99), and shelves designed to hold a laptop, cookbook, or herb pots.
