IKEA.....I JUST CAN'T.
Right off the bat, I need to set the record straight, I am not an Ikea hater like a lot of designers.
In fact, I actually like the modern minimal lines that Ikea is famous for. I think we’ve all been through an Ikea season of our lives. I know I have! When I moved to Dubai, and didn’t have a single spoon to my name, the first place I went to was Ikea. When I moved back to San Diego from Dubai and started over in my tiny apartment, I was right back at Ikea. Even now, I specify items from Ikea in some of my projects when appropriate, typically in kids’ spaces. And I always look forward to their latest collaborations with other designers but this….Really, Ikea? Their latest collaboration is with Katie Eary, a menswear designer out of the UK. She’s creative and she’s bold but I dunno, I’m just not feeling it. Have a look-see for yourself. If they launched this line at Halloween, I might be all in but this is a summer collection.
