What happens when elegant British design meets Scandinavian minimalism? You get KONSTFULL – the recent collection between IKEA and Ilse Crawford CBE that you need to know about.
The renowned London-based designer and founder of StudioIlse has renewed her partnership with the interiors label to create a new family of vases that you'll never know you needed until now.
The collection, which is inspired by nature, features a family of six vases that are available in a selection of sizes, colors, and textures. So, if you're looking for an accessory to accentuate your latest IKEA hack or you're searching for a stand-alone statement piece – Ilse Crawford has you covered.
While Ilse blesses KONSTFULL with her eye for design, the collection benefits from IKEA's focus on sustainability. The pieces are made from recovered glass and mouth-blown by skilled craftspeople to ensure they will add impact to your space – without harming the planet. This is the modern decorating idea that has set the standard for vases this spring – but will endure for seasons to come.
'Ilse Crawford's latest collection arrives at the perfect time for those looking to add fresh, decorative touches around the home as we enter a new year, says Clotilde Passalacqua, the Interior Design Leader at IKEA UK and Ireland.
'The pieces in the KONSTFULL collection not only make a statement with or without fresh blooms but are also made from recovered glass, resulting in us consuming less raw materials and lowering our environmental impact.'
Ilse designed KONSTFULL to pay homage to her ethos – to make small, everyday items feel special. The collection encourages people to personalize their homes by adding those little touches that are classic yet fun through the timeless aesthetic of fresh-cut blooms.
'What sets these vases apart is their tactile, organic feel – they vary in terms of surface quality and texture,' Clotilde adds. 'Some are smooth and clear, others are matte, opaque, or frosted, while others have air bubbles caught beneath the glass.'
The designer continues: 'These stunning and distinctive design features mean the complete family really standouts when paired together or individually – with the varying colors and textures adding depth to your home.'
