Ikea sent two designers, Eva Lundgren and Synnove Mork to India to create a new textile collection for the country. “I was inspired by the small, secret gardens that I would discover while walking down the streets of Bangalore,” says Lundgren. For Mork, “the different qualities of Indian line motifs, from really coarse to tenderly thin”, were what made her fall in love with the unique design language of India. The result was Ursprunglig, a collection of fabrics, cushion covers, floor cushions, bed linen, rugs, jewellery boxes, curtains and table linen.
