Our favorite Swedish retailer has released tons of new products this year and its newest announcement involves IKEA’s “unofficial “Halloween collection. The company has paired up with Per B Sundberg, a glass and ceramics Swedish artist on a limited-edition home collection that is unlike anything we’ve seen before from the minimalist design store.
The new design collection is called FÖREMÅL and draws its inspiration from Swedish folklore. The collection incorporates velvet-printed designs, antique-style materials and unique elements like mushrooms and skulls. Suffice it to say, it’s the perfect choice for a chic Halloween look.
Sundberg’s contribution to IKEA is a big departure from the mainstream, minimalist design we normally see at the Swedish retailer. It’s even described as “Pretty.Ugly.Lovely” on the IKEA website.
Since the entire line has not yet been officially released, we aren’t sure of the size of the collection or all the items. That said, we have seen glimpses of candle stick holders, textiles such as rugs and pillows, vases, planters and decorative boxes. Oh, and this terra cotta skull planter. You know, like you do.
You can expect to find bold patterns, design pieces that are just a little “off” and some that are definitely creepy. Case in point: this seriously creepy yet somehow still stylish clown statuette.
The collection will be available in September and will only be available for a limited time. Once available, you can shop the all the spooky designs in store or online.
