When we hear the word “nordic”, we simply accustom it to being a “minimalist” or “Scandinavian” feels, which is literally neutral tones like white and beige or black and white, and vice-versa. Hence, marking the first time IKEA has created prints for collaboration, BASTUA features unique designs with beautiful and practical pieces. Notwithstanding their staple commitment to providing value for money and using sustainable materials.
