Ikea has a sound reputation for innovation and fresh ideas, but their latest collection has certainly raised the standard for homewares.
The TILLFÄLLE collection is a line of pieces, all designed for home interiors, which celebrate Brazilian culture.
It uses the vibrancy and carnival atmosphere of Brazil, and mixes this with Scandinavian style to create a bold collection, full of bright prints and pop out colour.
Ikea describe the collection as ‘bold patterns, mixed colours and Scandinavian minimalism.’
The TILLFÄLLE collection features jungle-themed cushions, zebra-inspired rugs and plates, stylish bowls and plates.
There’s also seriously sophisticated furniture, including leather backed stools and cabinets in bold colours.
The great thing about this collection is not only the energetic prints and shades, but the mashing of styles.
You wouldn’t think that the Scandinavian basic lines and no frills attitude to their products would work at all with the blaze of prints and colours of Brazil, but somehow it does.
It may be that because the fabrics and prints are so outlandish they require a minimalistic setting to really show them off. Anything too complicated and over-detailed would ruin the look.
Ikea’s Creative Leader, Mette Nissen, explains the premise behind the collection:
“Even though there are many similarities between Scandinavian and Brazilian design and architecture, it is the differences in the Brazilian way of life that IKEA wants to celebrate.”
