7 Furniture Obsessions From The Coolest Designer Collabs
Teamwork - we might loathe them in school, but when it comes to fashion and furniture pieces - we’re in love! Different artists from various fields coming together and blending their unique vision into an exciting, provoking masterpiece.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite partnerships that have injected a new energy into the usual shopping list of furniture pieces.
1. Target & Dwell
When architectural magazine Dwell announced their partnership with Target, we knew that we’d be in for a treat. Think clean and minimalistic pieces at pocket-friendly prices. Bringing a piece of modern design into your living quarters just became a whole lot more affordable and easy with this collection Modern by Dwell Magazine.
The Dining Chair White/Gray is a clear standout. Clean cut line and an angular finish lends a chic and modern aesthetic, making this a functional chair that will slide right into your dining area.
Complete the space with this Outdoor Rug 8'x10' Navy which features a mosaic pattern on a deep navy backdrop. Serene yet captivating, this rug will dress up your plain boring floor and accentuate the surrounding furniture.
2. IKEA & HAY
When Scandinavian furniture powerhouse meets Danish design company HAY, you know that the result will be an elemental collection bringing quality and exceptional design to the masses. According to IKEA Design Manager Marcus Engman, expect “design which is totally clever, but understated at the same time”. The collection is slated to drop in October 2017.
Big does not necessarily equate to drama. This collection will see a focus on the small accessories, which the companies believe is the “glue”. Like this monoblock chair in olive hue for an understated living piece.
3. Artek & MUJI
Fact: We all appreciate MUJI’s quality products and minimalistic aesthetic. Another fact: The Artek Stool E60 has been so ubiquitous, thanks to its simplicity and functionality. So MUJI’s collaboration with Artek came about, the result is a furniture, as much as it is a work of art.
Available exclusively at selected Japanese MUJI stores and the Japanese MUJI online store, this limited-edition seats come in a natural wood finish and a two-toned seat-base. Whoever said that sitting on a stool has to be boring?
4. Modernica & The Diamond Supply Co.
What does high-end furniture brand Modernica and streetwear label The Diamond Supply Co. have in common? This bold creation. This iconic silhouette of the Modernica chair was given an edgy update.
Fashioned out of durable fibreglass, this Case Study Diamond X Modernica Side Shell Eiffel plays up the classic design with a bold and funky print, for some added some street funk into your living space.
5. Royal Doulton & Ellen DeGeneres
From her own line of hoodie and underwear, Ellen DeGeneres now has her own collection of tableware. The pairing of Royal Doulton’s legacy dating back from the 1815s, and Ellen DeGeneres’ casual and witty outlook might seem uncanny, but the result is anything but boring.
The ED Cave Animal 6in Plates Mixed is great to make dining fun. Plain plates do little to excite the tastebuds. These quirky prints will help dress up your food and the dinner table.
The ED Charcoal Grey Lines Dinner Plate is another favourite. Reminiscent of the iris and an abstract flower, you’ll be looking forward to hosting dinner parties just so you can show off these plates.
6. Anthropologie & Whitney Pozgay
Anthropologie can do no wrong - just like this collaboration with designer Whitney Pozgay, who has designed for the likes of Kate Spade and Steven Alan. This collection sees bold prints and bohemian motifs for a relaxing and soothing atmosphere.
A cross between a beanbag and a giant cushion, the WHIT Floral-Printed Pouf adds a whimsical flair to any room you have. The funky colours and adorable motifs will energise any space.
The WHIT Ceramic Stool adds a much needed visual interest to any room with its tribal-inspired pattern; a stool that truly commands attention.
7. Cloth & Company & Apartment Therapy
You know you room is in good hands when furniture and design online authority Apartment Therapy teams up with custom furniture maker Cloth & Company. The Cloth & Company + Apartment Therapy - Spring 2017 Capsule Collection features an eclectic array of striking prints.
Lay your sleepy head down in style with this Apartment Therapy Feather Fill Pillow Debris Floral Navy. Feel tranquil and peaceful with calming flora motifs that run through this soft fluffy pillow.
