If visiting Indonesia and South East Asia has been on your bucket list for years, but you can't get yourself to purchase those expensive flight tickets, IKEA has a solution: Bring the vibrant and natural elements of this culture to your own home. Their new limited edition collection, JASSA, was inspired by the color and craft of these parts of the world and, honestly, if they weren't already on your list, you're going to want to add them ASAP.
"JASSA is a fusion of many things — not just colors and patterns," Karin Gustavsson, the collection's creative leader, said in a . "It combines modern designs with natural materials and traditional craft methods. The result is a carefree collection of fabrics and furnishings that feel fun and unique, yet somehow also familiar." Seriously, people with bohemian tastes are going to love this.
All the furniture is handmade, meaning no two items are identical. Plus, they're made out of natural materials like sea-grass and bamboo.
But the color and pattern is what stands out the most. "The way the JASSA patterns are built up visually, is very much like batik or ikat. There are lots of competing colors: pinks and yellows and blues and greens," textile designer Paulin Machado said in a . "To begin with, you wonder how they can possibly work together! But in the end they just do!"
Like what you see? The collection will be in IKEA stores in the United States this month and you can find it all on , too.
