IKEA‘s intelligent design partnerships continue as the Swedish company reunites with Thai designers Greyhound Original for another collaborative home goods selection. Greyhound Original signatures return alongside some new staples, all inspired by the style seen on the streets of Bangkok.

A selection of intentionally understated storage aids — like wheeled shelves and tables — accompany patterned pillows, a rug and revamped FRAKTA tote, informed by intentionally mismatched shapes that recall Greyhound Original’s beloved houndstooth print. Smaller goods, like plates and a plastic jug-shaped lamp, reinforce the lighthearted revisions of timeless items while a steel coat rack is well-suited to any abode. Of course, the centerpiece of the playful collection is a reimagined chair cover shaped like a casually draped sweater, complete with “ORIGINAL” branding.

“Embracing imperfections adds character, personality and helps to make a home truly unique, with a relaxed approach to design instilling a calm and laidback vibe to your interiors,” Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Manager at IKEA UK and Ireland, said in a statement. “Incorporating recycled materials that have their own history adds to this, with sustainability and creative re-purposing processes being key to the SAMMANKOPPLA collection. The flatwoven rugs are made using recycled PET bottles, making them both an eco-conscious and decorative addition that adds a splash of colour and cool edge to your space.”

Expect Greyhound Original’s SAMMANKOPPLA to begin rolling out on IKEA’s website in the coming months, which varies depending on region.

Most recently, IKEA Japan launched its first apparel collection.
