A few days ago I was invited to a presentation of  Ikea’s new rug collection „Silkeborg“. Actually I’m not that carpet freak and  to be frank, this post really does not fit into my blog as well. BUT since I will move in a few days and my new apartment still could use some color, this event wasn’t such a bad idea in the first place. I wrapped myself up (Winter is coming) and made ​​the long journey to the Ikea store to gather some inspiration. My body also longed for a nice little event to forget about all the packing and moving. 
In fact, „little“ was the appropriate term for it. Guests were, a bored photographer, eating snacks in the corner and me, myself and I. Yep, quite lame!  BUT on the other hand there were advantages, too. For example there was no need to beat people up because you want a glass of champagne or to get some snacks. The second advantage was, that I had  two charming Swedish ladies from Ikea all to myself. They told me enthusiastically everything about the Silkeborg carpets collection and I enthusiastically drank my champagne and listened to them – while I ate my snacks. 
The hard and important facts are: Silkeborg -The collection consists of old carpets (which some lovely housewives from Anatolia didn’t want  in their living rooms anymore). Ikea had the bright idea to cut these rugs into small pieces and for the sake of  MIX & MATCHING, they sew them together again (same – same- just different). The result are wild combinations of oriental rugs with a patchwork pattern. The roses pattern (take a look at the photos) remind me of Dolce&Gabbana handbags ?coincidence?! We’ll never know! After 45 minutes of satisfying snacks, drinks and information I went back home to my packing chaos with at least some inspirations for the new apartment . 
Bottom Line:Such a cute and creative idea but unfortunately Dolce&Gabbana won’t make it into my closet and so won’t Silkeborg. What do you think?

Vor ein paar Tagen lud mich Ikea zur Präsentation ihrer neuen Teppich Kollektion Silkeborg ein. Eigentlich bin ich nicht so der Teppich Freak und eigentlich passt dieser Beitrag gar nicht zu meinem Blog. ABER da ich selbst in wenigen Tagen umziehe und meine neue Wohnung noch  etwas Farbe vertragen könnte, kam mir so ein Event gerade gelegen. Ich habe mich also dick eingepackt (Winter is coming) und auf den weiten Weg in den Ikea gemacht. Man konnte die Veranstaltung nicht wirklich ein Event nennen, denn außer mir waren nur eine einzige Journalistin und ein gelangweilter Fotograf vor Ort. Dies hatte zum einen den Vorteil, dass man sich um Sekt und Häppchen nicht prügeln musste und zum anderen, dass ich die zwei bezaubernden schwedischen Damen von Ikea ganz für mich alleine hatte. Diese haben mir voller Begeisterung von der Silkeborg Teppich-Kollektion erzählt und ich habe voller Begeisterung meinen Sekt getrunken und ihnen zugehört. Spaß beiseite und hin zu den harten und wichtigen Fakten. Die Silkeborg Kollektion besteht aus alten Teppichen welche Damen aus Anatolien nicht mehr in Ihren Wohnzimmern haben wollten. Ikea hatte die schlaue Idee diese Teppiche zu zerschneiden und nach dem MIX&MATCH Prinzip wild zusammen zu nähen. Das Ergebnis sind wild kombinierte Orientteppiche im Patchworkmuster. Mich erinnern die Rosen irgendwie an die Dolce&Gabbana Handtaschen. So nett und kreativ die Idee auch ist, in meine Wohnung wird es so ein Teppich leider nicht schaffen. Aber was denkt ihr?

    the story. I was surprised you aren't more popular because you surely have the gift.
