IKEA Revisits the 50’s for Fresh New PS Collection

IKEA’s PS – Post Scriptum Collections, launched every 3 years are the more cutting edge offering from the furniture retailer otherwise known in the developed world for its mass-appealing, super-ubiquitous and inexpensive furniture; and here in Pakistan as being the daddy of Habitt, aka the poor aunty’s IKEA.

Given the brief to design while paying homage to some of IKEA’s past collections, the 19 designers have come up with some truly fun, eye-poppingly colorful and generally beautiful pieces of design.

The latest collection is hitting stores in the developed world in August. Hey, so what if we can’t buy IKEA, no one said we can’t ogle at these Scandinavian beauties!
