When you think of Arket, you likely think of that influencer-favourite puffer coat, sharp shirts, and sophisticated accessories. However, we may often forget that Arket doesn’t just stock clothing, but also a brand new jewellery collection and some super chic homeware too. In fact, the brand has some real must-haves, from covetable kitchenware to soft furnishings.
And one item that’s caught the eye of some of the coolest influencers around is this gorgeous sell-out blanket, which has been spotted in some of the most stylish homes over the past year.
The Linnea Andersson Blanket is — as its name suggests — born from a collaboration between Arket and Swedish artist and illustrator Linnéa Andersson. Andersson is inspired by Scandinavian design as well as the psychedelic era, and her sinuous branch and leaf texture design is her signature.
The blanket — which features tassels at either end — is described as ‘thick and warm yet soft and comfortably lightweight,’ making it perfect for the time of year, whether you keep it by your sofa or use it as a throw at the end of your bed. It’s made of 100% wool, and comes in a series of colours, however, the style is a sell-out one so is only currently available in the pretty lilac shade. The purple hue is guaranteed to add a pop of colour to some understated monochrome bedding.
It’s been spotted in the homes of some of the coolest Instagram influencers, including Sinead Crowe, who has the black and white version.
If you fancy picking up the blanket, it has a mid-range price of £69, and we recommend getting in there quick as many of the colours have already gone. It may also be worth checking in stores when it is safe again to do so, as some Arket branches have sizeable homeware departments to shop from in person.
