Inspired Collaborations :: IKEA's Trendig Collection

In the days where collaborations are a dime-a-dozen, retailers don't want to seem like copycats.  Leave it to Ikea to create a co-created collection with an entire COUNTRY.  The Swedish+China home collection is called the Ping Pong collection- a metaphor for the passing of ideas back and forth between both sets of designers.   Pretty.  Darn.  Cool.  

How great are the Asian/Wegner wishbone inspired chairs?  Bamboo seats and lacquered wood.  Brilliant.
