shares

Lip-shaped pillows, 3D-printed hands, a vase in the shape of laced-up boots, an oversized pocket watch and more – these are some rather whimsical items you can expect to see in the upcoming limited edition collection IKEA will be launching in June. Collaborating with self-described “fashion activist” Bea Åkerlund for the OMEDELBAR collection, the Swedish furniture giant sure is taking bold strides.

Bea is a well-known stylist and fashion designer who has worked with some of the biggest names in showbiz. Madonna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga are just some of the A-listers she’s teamed up with. Best described as Goth meets Hollywood Glamour, the OMEDELBAR collection is a manifestation of the fashion icon’s personal style.

Here are our top 5 picks from this Alice In Wonderland-esque collection.

  1. Clothes rack
    This gold-dipped clothes rack made to look like it was fashioned out of pipes will appeal to both fashionistas and industrial-design lovers alike.

    Bea claims that she wears her signature red lip to bed. Now you can follow suit (sort of) with these perky cushions.

    Gold tacks, lace details and a super curvy form, the OMEDELBAR armchair is whimsical, sexy and classy all at the same time.
