Everybody has been talking about this new collaboration and it’s finally here. It’s been a while since Habitat has joined forces with a fashion label, but the result is something fresh and fun.
Shimps signature pallette of reds and pinks form the base of this collection, with touches of gold and blue. Playful hand drawn motifs and patterns adorn cushions, rugs and bedding.
Hannah Weiland’s first fashion-meets-interiors collection is finally here. Delving into the archives of her cult London fashion label, Shrimps, she’s translated her iconic designs into a series of must-have textiles and artwork for the home. Fantastical creatures roam. A crowd of faces gather. Venetian jesters carnival until dawn. Yes, it really is as crazy, and amazing, as it sounds.
IKEA have done it again and created a collection with an unlikely designer, giving us something very unexpected but also very appealing.
The Spanst collection is made up of 32 pieces created with fashion designer Chris Stamp ( creative director of clothing brand Stampd ) and product designer Maja Ganszyniec. The varied range includes an armchair, shelving units, cushions, waterbottle, skateboard, shoe boxes, LED lights and much more.
With a black, grey and white colour pallete this collection is minimal and well thought out, with practical pieces with a very urban, streetwear edge.
We love how IKEA are mixing it up with clothing and homeware and bringing in designers to showcase their ideas. Launching in May this limited edition collection won’t hang around for long.
IKEA has always been a company to push design ideas and bring fun into our homes. A new collection designed with fashion stylist Bea Akerlund may just be their boldest yet, where a heavy gothic vibe meets Alice in Wonderland.
Omedelbar is a limited edition collection launching in March and is expected to be a hit. The collection consists of vases, accessories, furniture and soft furnishings in bold black, red and gold.
Look out for top hat and boot vases, a crown bowl, lip shaped cushion and a giant pocket watch wall clock.
We have been waiting a long time for this collaboration. And if you don’t know about it, here is the lowdown.
Launching in October Swedish giant Ikea has joined forces with Danish brand Hay to create the new Ypperlig collection. Featuring furniture, vases, throws and accessories the Ypperlig collection has been designed to ‘challenge people’s perception of Ikea quality and design’
Hay has also taken on the challenge of redesigning the iconic blue & yellow Frakta bag. The size & shape has remained, with new colours including the green & white version pictured. Hay wanted to turn the bag into a ‘design object’ that customers appreciate.
We love the simplicity and muted colours of the collection, with strong design that will fit into any room. As Ikea says ‘a contemporary yet ageless collection’

Launching this Spring HAY has join forces with COS for a second time after their successful collaboration last year.
COS has been using HAY furniture for many years in their stores, so it seems very fitting that the two Scandinavian brands have come together.
The clean lines, soft colour palette and durability of HAY products mirrors that of COS and they compliment each other seamlessly.
The collection itself is made up of accessories, stationary and furniture in shades of green, blue and pink all hand picked by the COS team from the new HAY collection.
Last Autumn the two brands worked with Spanish designer Tomas Alonso to create a folding table to be sold in COS stores. The success has lead to a continued partnership, and who knows what great things are next.
Available in COS – High St Kennsingtion and online at cosstores.com
[ HAY is available in some of the big department stores in London and around the country, as well as their stand alone store in Bath, plus you can hunt it out through online shops. ]
