Tailor William Hunt has teamed up with Ikea to create limited edition suits using Ikea textiles and fabrics, and you can enter a competition* to win one!
These one of a kind suits have been hand-crafted using SOFIA, ROSENRIPS, NEDJA and KUNGSLILJA fabrics which mirror existing IKEA products including POANG chairs, STOCKSUNDT sofas and bedding.
It's all to encourage people to bring personality into their homes simply and affordably, with inspiration from home interiors.
"I love the idea of people taking fashion and style and embracing it by taking it further into their homes" said William Hunt. "Our partnership with Ikea is important as we are encouraging the public to push themselves just a little, and to show off their character in their own homes."
Ikea were also motivated by the increasing number of people 'playing it safe' with white or beige interiors, and they want to encourage people to use colourful fabrics and textiles.
