Sweeten Weekend Reading Roundup

IKEA’s BARKABODA Herringbone Countertop (via Apartment Therapy)

– Loving this wooden herringbone countertop from IKEA’s new 2017 catalog, but can’t tell if it’ll hold up to real kitchen countertop use.

– We can’t wait to see what’s next from Slash Objects – a Brooklyn-based firm bringing architecture and construction materials to interior objects. More of this, please!

– Sweeten finds: a cement apron-front sink with natural jute fiber from Native Trails.

– Wood planters can make all the difference in a backyard or patio (this sweetened “ultimate urban getaway” shows us how it’s done).

– In case you missed it #ICYMI, an Apartment Therapy commenter says this sweetened Brooklyn kitchen “looks like a home, not a staged set!” Read more about the renovation and product sources here.
