Designer thoughts

"I've always been fascinated by old hand-painted botanical illustrations. They're so skillfully made and detailed. That's why it felt so natural for me to borrow the pattern for STRANDKRYPA duvet cover from the plant kingdom. And because IKEA was actually founded near the birthplace of the world-famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, I chose local flowers from the area. I hope my illustrations will make you want to take a closer look at all the colors, shapes and details that grow all around us."
