CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS
IKEA Design Grant
IKEA Rhodes teamed up with TAFE South Western Sydney institute (SWSi) to give three local designers the chance to win a $2000 grant towards their studies at TAFE SWSi’s popular design school based at Lidcombe.

IKEA Rhodes has been working in partnership with TAFE SWSi since 2010, giving local design students the opportunity to gain industry experience through a work placement program. In this new initiative designers were given the opportunity to compete for the grant by entering a competition whereby they produced a plan to redesign a corner of their home using the IKEA range. The top five entries have been on display at IKEA Rhodes since Monday 30 December for the public to vote on their favourite design.

We are pleased to announce that the winners of the IKEA Design Grant 2014, as voted by the public are:

1st Christina Brooks
2nd Sarah Reason
3rd Celine Huggins

Congratulations to all our winners from everyone at IKEA Rhodes.


IKEA MAKEOVER
We've transformed the family suites at Bear Cottage
Bear Cottage was designed to be a home away from home to support families who are caring for a child with a life limiting illness in the comfort of a homely environment.

Now that Bear Cottage is twelve years old, like any home, years of wear and tear have taken their toll on the rooms and furniture which have become a little tired. This November a team of co-workers from IKEA Rhodes, IKEA Tempe, IKEA Service office and IKEA Contact Centre came together to makeover the two family suites at Bear Cottage.

The newly made over suites were unvield on Friday 15th November and were wonderfully received by the staff and families at Bear Cottage.

Take a look at these before and after photos to see the transformation. we hope you like it!

Ensuring there's plenty of fish left in the sea
“IKEA recently participated in a WWF-initiated dialogue that led to the development of a new standard of sustainable salmon farming, which we will apply to all of the salmon we sell and serve. After all, we need to do our part to ensure that there’s plenty of fish left in the sea for the future.” - Olivia Ross, IKEA Head of Sustainability Communication.

Classified as an oily fish, lax is considered to be healthy due to its high protein and Omega 3 fatty acid content, which are important for brain function. Lax also has lots of vitamin D for healthy bones and muscles.

IKEA has committed to source salmon only from ASC certified (Aquaculture stewardship council) farms by August 2015 at the latest.
