Winter is coming—and, according to IKEA, the season is taking a sinister turn. Supernatural shapes, rich textures, and inky hues (think, deep violets and cooling blues) are just a few predominant themes that appear to have inspired the Swedish retailer’s 2018 winter collection. While we’ve seen Scandinavian cheer from IKEA before, this year’s pieces are anything but traditional.

Jet-black tabletop accessories, whimsical lighting, and icy cold tones underscore the moody collection. No matter the occasion, IKEA’s wintry finds promise to extend a dark—yet, undeniably glamorous—touch. Read on for our favorite items from the collection.
