IKEA’s Latest Fashion Collab Includes Jug-Inspired Lamps and Layered Rugs
From the streets of Bangkok to your home, IKEA is bringing you a piece of Thai culture by way of its latest collection.
The retailer recently announced SAMMANKOPPLA, a line of home goods that blends IKEA’s design expertise with the city’s vibrant textiles and patterns. The limited-edition collection was created in partnership with Thai fashion designers Greyhound Original, and reflects the artists’ love of repurposing, reusing and creative philosophy of “basic, but with a twist.”
“This is a collection where anything goes, showing that imperfection can be perfect,” the company said in a statement. You can expect a curation of practical and decorative pieces—ranging from storage boxes, wheeled shelves and tables to patterned pillows, mugs and totes.
“Embracing imperfections adds character, personality and helps to make a home truly unique, with a relaxed approach to design instilling a calm and laidback vibe to your interiors.” the statement continued. Smaller pieces like a plastic jug-shaped lamp or a colorful flatwoven rug will add a touch of personality to your space, while a steel coat rack and room divider will give it an urban edge. You can even take things further with the reimagined chair cover shaped like a sweater and marked with the “ORIGINAL” branding.
The influence of Bangkok is visible through bold patterns that mirror the urban landscape and the signature houndstooth design inspired by patterns from traditional Thai weaving. The SAMMANKOPPLA collection incorporates functional creativity, quirky design and sustainability into everyday items that are affordable and stylish.
