This New IKEA And Marimekko Collection Is Seriously Dreamy—And All Under $90
Compared to other classic color pairings, nothing makes us more excited for summer than punchy, bright shades, especially when they're paired with earth-focused neutrals. Something about candy pink and deep green makes us feel extra playful, and also puts us in the mood to have some homemade popsicles. Needless to say, anything that's colorful and that puts us in a summer mood gets a thumb's up from us.
The new IKEA and Marimekko BASTUA collection features a 25+ piece product line of furniture, glassware, and textiles that draws inspiration from elements of Nordic nature, wellness, and self-care rituals. With bright colors and funky shapes, the collection strikes the perfect balance between minimalism and maximalism. We're also suckers for the nostalgic film photography style the team leveraged to shoot the campaign! Keep reading to see the full collection before it drops in March.
What You Need To Know About The Collection
The name of the collection, "BASTUA" is a term that's used to describe sauna in Småland, which is actually the Swedish region where IKEA was founded. Marimekko’s printmaking and the IKEA design are the perfect marriage of function and art.
“[Marimekko and IKEA] are both committed to enabling a better everyday life at home, and with the BASTUA collection, it begins with focusing on wellness first,” says Henrik Most, Creative Leader at IKEA, in a press release. “The collaboration encapsulates the sensations of endless summers and the simple and aesthetic beauty of Nordic nature in furniture and accessories for the home.”
“Marimekko is committed to bringing joy to the everyday lives of people with its bold prints and designs, and we are excited to see this to come true in collaboration with IKEA,” adds Rebekka Bay, Creative Director at Marimekko.
