Textiles with patterns from the past

Today, more and more people are moving into cities. We're driven by rapid advancements in technology and a changing way of life. And though we live in an ever-changing world, many of us still have a longing for the familiar and a desire for the traditional. Like the patterns found on some of our textiles – inspired by 19th century prints from a museum collection in France.

Musée de l'Impression sur Étoffes (Museum of Printed Textiles) is tucked away in the northeast corner of France. It was founded in the 19th century, a time characterized by fantastic innovations that opened up the world like never before. The parallels between that time and today are striking. Which is why it seems appropriate that, when some from our design team sought out inspiration for traditional textiles to suit our modern world, they turned here.

A treasure chest of textiles

The museum houses more than six million patterns, and you'll find some of them featured on our textiles. The floral patterns of SPRÄNGÖRT and HÄSSLEKLOCKA duvet covers and curtains; striped ULLAKARIN fabric; and vine-covered LUNGÖRT cushion cover, all come from the museum's archive, along with the designs for STENÖRT duvet cover and SIGBRITT fabric. The vast collection of swatches and samples at the museum is carefully stored in seemingly endless shelves, drawers and old books.

Inspiration through the times

"The museum is really fantastic," says Susanna Leo, one of our designers, and a driving force behind our textiles in this style. Visiting the museum and pouring over aging books filled with fabric swatches made her heart race. "They have so many nice patterns and they are timeless." David Soyer, who works at the museum, helps designers, artists and scholars who are looking for patterns from the past. He has worked with Susanna and some of her colleagues before, providing them with a multitude of samples over the years. "For us it is the opportunity to make the designs alive one more time," explains David. "For them it is an incredible and wealthy source of inspiration and a way to join history and culture to their creations."

Piecing it all together

The colors of the patterns are adjusted to coordinate with other IKEA products, but Susanna and her colleagues take care to change as little as possible in order to secure authenticity. Coordinating a textile collection to work not only together, but also with the furniture that already exists at IKEA, as well as considering the types of things people already have at home – is a huge challenge. "It’s a big puzzle actually," says Emma Jones, who worked with Susanna to create the textiles. "A really big puzzle," she laughs.

Keeping the customer at the center of their project was the key to creating the products. "This style can suit many different people in many different stages of their lives," Emma says. "Even if you like this style, it doesn’t have to mean you’re old fashioned. You probably just appreciate quality that never goes out of style."
