IKEA are constantly bringing us new collections and challenging design within homeware to keep us coming back.
Their latest is ANNANSTANS, a handcrafted collection of cushions, ornaments and ceramics.
‘ANNANSTANS has a modern, urban expression, but not because of a machine. The pieces are crafted by hand, so each one is unique‘
‘In ANNANSTANS, meaning “elsewhere” in Swedish, the contemporary concepts of designer Martin Bergström find new expressions through social entrepreneur artisans in India, Romania and Thailand‘
