No doubt our lives ánd how we decorate our homes changed over the last year. Not only are there things we all miss, but there has certainly been an awareness of how dependent we have become on the import of goods to keep society going. This back to basic feeling, the longing back, and now even more appreciating nature and everything that is handmade has influenced our way of decorating.
Ikea teamed up with four young contemporary designers from Amman, Delhi and Bangkok who worked together with local artisans and local traditions to create the new limited collection Lokalt. A collection perfectly fitting the common trend. I selected a few items of the collection.
LOKALT collection is produced by social businesses in Jordan, Thailand and India. Every cushion cover, rug, basket and bowl is handmade by skilled artisans and creates work in regions where it’s most needed.
