IKEA just announced its new Överallt furniture collection is set to launch in May. The collection will feature a host of African designers from five different nations.
Överallt was showcased during the Design Indaba Festival in Cape Town, the same place where IKEA originally teamed up with African decor designers.
The upcoming launch includes work from Sengalese fashion designer Selly Raby Kane, South African textile designer Laduma Ngxokolo, and Kenyan design office Studio Propolis.
IKEA’s move comes after other retailers have started major partnerships with Black designers and Black-owned brands. For Black History Month, Target launched Heritage and Heroes products designed and curated by some of its Black employees.
Överallt has also been inspired by African culture and, more specifically, areas for socializing.
