IKEA has always been our go-to shop for stylish, affordable and functional furniture, but now it looks as though the brand has decided to step outside the blue and yellow box for a few of their 2016 products. Expanding beyond the world of home goods, the Swedish decor giant has teamed up with Milan Fashion Week and two fashion designers to present their two new collaborations in a whole new way: a runway show.

Never one to be exclusive, IKEA decided to make their first show accessible to everyone. Today at 1:30 ET, they released a live stream of the event via YouTube. Here鈥檚 what went down.

Before we jump into the recap, here鈥檚 a little bit of background info about the upcoming collaborations: The two designers IKEA has teamed up with are Martin Bergstr枚m and Katie Eary. Bergstr枚m worked with the furniture brand to create a monochromatic collection inspired by India. His line consists of pieces like bed sheets, rugs, bowls and glassware. Katie Eary is a London-based designer whose aesthetic is typically super colorful, bold and patterned. She worked with IKEA to create stylish aprons, shopping bags, cushions, dinnerware and lamp shades.


As the lights went up, the show opened with three male models rocking airy, abstract pieces by Bergstr枚m. As they walked out it started like a normal fashion show would, but then all three models broke out into a sort of interpretive dance. Then more models joined them and the runway kind of turned into a giant (very well-dressed) dance party. As they wrapped up, Bergstr枚m made a brief appearance with his models to take a bow.


After that, the 鈥淚KEA Fashion Crew鈥 came out and made some adjustments to the stage, and then it was time for Katie Eary鈥榮 designs to make their debut. Unlike the presentation of Bergstr枚m鈥榮 collection, Eary鈥檚 was more straightforward. Models rocking giant eyeball helmets walked the runway holding dinnerware, lampshades and pillows, which they then placed on a minimal bar at the end of the stage. After the table was set, Eary apparently decided to kill two birds with one stone, as the looks from her womenswear line (unaffiliated with IKEA) then made their debut down the runway.


While these presentations (especially Bergstr枚m鈥檚) may give the impression that IKEA is making a leap into clothing, that鈥檚 not actually the case. Both collections are heavily focused on prints, but staying true to the Swedish brand, they are in actuality home-decor focused. But like most runway shows, IKEA and the featured designers decided to debut the concept and unfiltered spirit behind the upcoming lines (at least in Bergstr枚m鈥檚 case) rather than what it will actually consist of.


If you want to check out what these collections will look like in stores, sadly you鈥檙e in for a bit of a wait. Just like the rest of the looks debuting at Milan Fashion Week, these designer collabs won鈥檛 be available in US stores until the Spring 2016 season. Actually, Eary鈥檚 pieces are available in spring, and you鈥檒l have to wait until the fall to score Bergstr枚m鈥檚 collection. And as far as those dance skills, sweet dance skills? Well, you鈥檙e just going to have to watch the runway show on repeat to pick those up.
