Ikea 2017: Stylish Rattan by a Superstar Dutch Designer

February 27, 2017

Unfortunately Ikea doesn’t ask us for advice. (See: What We Love—and Hate—About Ikea.) This explains why Ikea’s new Jassa rattan furniture collection created in partnership with superstar Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek will be released in a “limited edition” starting March 1, available only until initial shipments sell out.

If Ikea had asked us, we’d have pointed out that the stylish Jassa pieces deserve a permanent spot in Ikea’s otherwise limited collection of woven furniture. Inspired by designs from Vietnam and Indonesia, the long-awaited Jassa line also includes colorful patterned pillows and ceramics. But the pieces we’d most like to buy to furnish our indoor-outdoor rooms are the woven chairs, chaises, tables, and baskets. Get them while they last:
