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:

Above: Although pieces in the Jassa collection are mass-produced, “it will look completely handmade,” says Hein Eek, whose work celebrates the idiosyncrasies and imperfections of natural materials.
