I am not currently in possession of a perfectly manicured loft with clean concrete surfaces, high ceilings, huge windows, and an expertly curated collection of art and ephemera scattered throughout. But I'd like to be. And while current circumstances dictate that such a thing won't be happening anytime soon, at least I—and you!—can channel some of that vibe with the new collaboration between Stampd designer Chris Stamp, graphic designer Maja Ganszyniec, and Ikea.

The Spänst collection is basically what happens when a streetwear mentality meets interior design. There are clear shoeboxes that let you show off your sneaker collection. There's a mesh wardrobe that lets views of your clothing show through at the right angles, so you can (covertly) display those grail pieces when you're not wearing them. There's a shoe rack that doubles as a skateboard rack—and there's even a skateboard, the first Ikea has ever produced.

"Fashion and furniture are different animals, but the creative process is similar," Stamp said in a statement. "Design, no matter the medium, is always about finding the right solution to a challenge."

"DESIGN, NO MATTER THE MEDIUM, IS ALWAYS ABOUT FINDING THE RIGHT SOLUTION TO A CHALLENGE."


The collection also includes a few nods to Stamp's fashion background in the form of a hoodie and a T-shirt, plus accessories like a dad cap and duffel bag. Items like decorative tube lighting, pillows and blankets, and one particularly sleek armchair round out the offerings.


It might not be the same as scoring a brand new place to live, but considering the fact that all of these home and wardrobe upgrades are coming from the notoriously affordable folks at Ikea, you can bet it'll cost you a lot less that signing a new lease. The whole collection makes its debut in stores and online this May. Keep a look out.
