‘A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes’ – Vera Wang.
Okay, so obviously Vera Wang wasn’t talking about wearing a duvet, but sometimes you just have to let comfort win, and this new product from IKEA is definitely on the side of comfort. Technically it’s still Summer here in Stockholm for another month, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it. Whilst Southern Europeans lounge around on terraces fanning themselves, we brave the cold just to sit outside and make the most of Summer before the even colder weather arrives. Sometimes we’d rather just be snuggled up under our duvets.
Well, IKEA has clearly cottoned on to the fact that we all want to sit outside, even when it’s freezing, and so they’ve created Fältmal. This ingenious product starts off as a cushion but can be folded out into a kind of duvet-jacket. So, you could be sitting around enjoying some cocktails with friends with a comfy cushion behind you, then boom, you’ve got something to keep you warm when the sun goes down.
It’s not exactly haute couture, but it’s definitely practical, and there are even buttons to stop it from slipping off when you lean forward or shift position. Plus, there’s a little pouch in the front so you’re basically all set for a relaxing, comfy evening. Check out the IKEA website to read more.
