Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director and Off-White founder Virgil Abloh has brought his playful design aesthetic to an unexpected partner: IKEA, your favourite budget-friendly furniture empire. While the entire collection is set to launch this November, on Wednesday evening IKEA surprised Abloh fans with a surprise drop of one of its most anticipated items - a rug which is now being resold for six times the price on eBay. According to a press release from IKEA, the rug retails for £400 and after digging through British eBay we discovered the 200 x 300 cm piece is already being sold for as much as £2,500 online.
The current fascination with cleaning on Instagram has seen a surge in hashtags such as #cleaningobsessed and #cleaningtime, and made stars out of the likes of Sophie Hinchliffe aka Mrs Hinch (two million followers). “Consumers are becoming aware that chemically ‘clean’ or stripped-out spaces and surfaces are not necessarily great for us or the environment,” says Greene.
