This New Ikea Collection Will Bring Serious Design Cred To Your Home

For the most part, Ikea is regarded as a reliable source for everyday home supplies, like plain bedsheets and basic dinnerware sets. The Swedish superstore's vast, no-frills inventory makes it the ultimate destination to shop for affordable apartment basics. But, if Ikea's June 2017 catalog is any indication, your next visit to the retailer is going to get much more colorful and interesting.
The brand has introduced Stunsig, a limited-edition line of tableware, cushions, and bedding in a variety of striking patterns. The edgy designs are created in collaboration with six artists and design teams with serious fashion credentials, giving rise to a daring collection (for Ikea at least) with lots of personality to spare. Think edgy hand drawings, cartoons and photography that scream "I picked this up at a cool indie boutique." Click through to take a peek at the eclectic new collection, now available in stores only.

The collection is created to inspire you to get creative about mixing prints at home. "All prints have a strong visual story on their own. The moment you mix various prints, the scenery expands and creates new, unique and unexpected magical stories,” says Tilde Bay, a Copenhagen-based artist behind some of the pictured tableware.
