On Thursday afternoon, Saint Heron, the multidisciplinary cultural hub founded by Solange Knowles, announced a collaboration with the Swedish furniture designer Ikea.

In a statement, Marcus Engman, the head of design at Ikea Range & Supply, said, “At IKEA we are curious about the creative space in between architecture, design, art, and music and how that could come alive in the homes of the many people. This is what we want to explore together with Saint Heron.” The resulting designs are sure to be highly instagrammable.
