The rumors are true. Swedish home decor powerhouse IKEA and American music manufacturer Sonos have officially announced an arty collaboration that will allow you to turn your modern home into a disco – without tainting your interiors aesthetic. 

After two months of teasing, the brands announced the SYMFONISK picture frame WiFi speaker that doubles as a stylish piece of artwork whilst blessing your room with your favorite tunes.

SYMFONISK comes after research from IKEA suggested that music is the single most important element for creating the right atmosphere whilst at home. It was, therefore, only natural that the Swedish brand would once again join forces with Sonos to create a speaker that combines chic interior design with unrivaled sound quality. This is multifunctionality at its most stylish.

These speakers connect to devices via WiFi and can also coincide with other SYMFONISK and Sonos products for when you want to take the party beyond the living room and into the kitchen. 

The collaboration is not the first time the brands have filled our homes with sound and style, as their first SYMFONISK collection in 2019 saw the duo develop speakers that are designed as sophisticated furnishings, including their Symfonisk table lamp and a discrete bookshelf speaker

This speaker is now available in both black and white, with interchangeable fronts to offer a variety of new looks that will fit into a diverse range of interiors.

Plus, in a similar way to the original SYMFONISK collection, these pieces also act as ingenious space-saving solutions – so you can spend partying and less time worrying about the size of the dance floor.

In his discussion of this versatile new collection, Product Developer at IKEA of Sweden, Stjepan Begic, praises the speakers as an 'eye-catching piece of art' that coordinates with 'other wall art, placed on a shelf, or even on the floor leaned against a wall.'

'The interchangeable fronts make it easy to choose a style that suits your individual home. As part of the growing IKEA Home smart range, this new speaker contributes to our ambition to enable the many to enjoy a smarter everyday life,' Stjepan adds.

The SYMFONISK picture frame WiFi speaker will be available from £179 and €179 in stores across the UK & Ireland, and online from 15th July 2021. We'll be right back once we've got our playlist ready.
