Local Design Spotlight
Wendy Ohlendorf Magenta
At IKEA Portland we are always saying, "Bring design home." We have a super spotlight of a local designer that we think will inspire you to get creative with IKEA fabrics.

Recently, IKEA Portland furnished the VIP lounge at Portland Fashion Week. We also made an offer to all of the designers showing that we would give them some of our fabric to use in a design. Wendy Ohlendorf took us up on the offer and selected TRÅDKLÖVER fabric with a bold print. She collaborated with Cyndi Koon on the design and construction of a beautiful look. The shawl collared capelet, pleated skirt and Obi belt all made a splash on the runway April 26 during Wendy's Boulevard de Magenta Portland Fashion Week show. Now it is on display in our Textiles Department with the fabrics through the end of July. We hope it will inspire you to take on a project of your own.

Finished dress modeled during Portland Fashion Week 2014 by Devon Blackerby of Muse Models. Photographed on the runway by Jeff Wong. For more information on Wendy Ohlendorf's designs visit www.magentapdx.com

Award Winning Design at Serving Up Style!



The Art Institute of Portland and IKEA Portland team won two awards at the Serving Up Style event to benefit Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus!

The student design was furnished top to bottom with IKEA products using the theme A Lair Fit for the Queen. It was a peek deep into the Queen Bee's luxurious lair- complete with honey dripping from the ceiling. Imagined in gold and black- it won both the Lighting Award and, the biggest prize of the show, Designer's Choice Award.

At IKEA, we believe that education and inspiration make good design possible. That's why we're proud to support the students of Art Insitute of Portland by donating all the products featured in their display. We can't wait to see what they come up with this fall!





Portland Children's Museum Field Station Furnished by IKEA!



The Portland Children's Museum recently opened it's Outdoor Adventure, a project we were proud to be a part of. IKEA Portland donated all the furnishings for the Museum's new Field Station, which is the entrance to the adventure! We think it turned out beautifully and we hope you'll check it out with your children or grandchildren soon! For more details, visit www.PortlandCM.org
