    Hot off the press: 5 exclusive new designer collaborations from Bemz

    by  • Friday, August 21, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Famed for designing stunning covers for Ikea’s furniture, Swedish brand Bemz has long-been the ultimate way to make homogenous furnishings feel completely unique. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the brand is launching a limited-edition designer collection, featuring five gorgeous new fabrics. What’s more, each designer will curate their pattern of choice alongside additional fabrics from the existing 250-strong Bemz range. This will be filmed (check out the video at the end of our story!) and launched throughout the year, so keep checking their website for updates!

    Sudara

    First up was Tricia Guild, founder of Designers Guild, who kicked off the campaign in May 2015. Her design Sudara (above), is a digitally printed floral in rich tones, featuring azure and purple hydrangeas interspersed with painterly green leaves.

    Fruit-Garden

    Next up is the Fruit Garden print by Camilla Lundsten’s company Littlephant (above), which is available from August 20 2015. Delve into a world of whimsical characters in a modern Scandi print for a bold, stylish update to fabrics and furniture alike.

    Jardin-Exo'Chic

    For a large-scale statement pattern, check out Jardin Exo’Chic by Christian Lacroix. Created in deep inky tones with a palm leaf print, it’s an exotic addition that adds instant modern drama. Make it pop with bold cushions in primary colours. Pythagoras

    The final contributions feature Pythagoras (above, available from October 15 2015), a digital geometric print in a spectrum of fiery tones from Sven Markelius, whose résumé includes the Swedish pavilion and UN buildings in New York. The fifth and final design will come from Katarina Wiklund, set to be unveiled in November!

    Bild pears poster, 50 x 40cm; £4, Ikea

    Yes, it really is £4! This chic pear print (if pears can indeed be chic) will make a minimalist statement against a plain white wall. For a super cheap update, try sticking the print up with a flash of neon washi tape or add a Ribba frame for just £7.

    A Rose is a Rose is a Rose; Honey Honey; I Do I Do I Do posters, 50 x 70cm, £55 each, One Must Dash

    Although still in their signature monochrome finish, the latest offering from One Must Dash is a change from their usual bold, graphic prints. These delicate florals look beautiful displayed in a trio or if you can make your mind up on which one, try framing a single print for a simple but striking piece of art work.

It seems that Ikea’s been doing a little crafty mind reading, with the timely reveal of its beautiful new Nipprig collection.
