Our two favourite kinds of things have finally combined – talented melanin mega queen and clean interior aesthetics. Solange Knowles is joining forces with giant Swedish retailer Ikea to explore “architectural and interior design objects with multifunctional use.”
This isn’t the first time Ikea has used industry creatives to bring an interiors collection to life. Louis Vuitton menswear Art Director Virgil Abloh worked with Ikea just last month to produce a doorstop, an accent chair and a number of designer rugs. Swedish stylist and fashion activist Bea “B.” Åkerlund also designed everything from red lip printed pillows to hatboxes at the beginning of the year. Quite frankly we’re loving the influence fashion is now having on home interior trends..
While we’re not yet sure exactly what Solange’s collaboration will look like, if it’s anything like her incredible music, stage presence or her bold fashion decisions, we know it’s going to be a good one. We’re envisioning shiny vinyl textures like the jumpsuits which have now become the artists’ signature look and geometric vases and lamps much like her on-stage headwear. One thing is for sure – when this collection drops, Ikea can take our money!
