Dry January is nearly over, celebrate in style by hosting a party with the new limited-edition IKEA FREKVENS collection.
IKEA’s latest innovation is the perfect one-stop shop for anyone who loves to throw a good party. Whether that’s a birthday disco for your kids or a shindig for yourself.
IKEA FREKVENS collection
Stockholm-based creative collective teenage engineering collaborated with IKEA to develop the 27-piece collection. The collective merged their passion for music and electronics with IKEA’s home furnishing expertise, to create an affordable line of speakers and spotlights.
The collection, starting at £4, includes an LED spotlight with a number of filters to create different lighting effects. It also features a speaker that can be layered with the spotlights for a full retro effect.
However, sound hasn’t been sacrificed in favour of aesthetics, the speaker with a subwoofer, priced at £129, will provide some serious room-rattling beats.
IKEA has created a retro silver raincoat with matching bag, tiki-inspired stackable cups and a silver cushion cover to compliment the collection. Time to start planning that at-home rave.

‘FREKVENS introduces sound into the home in a new way. It is very simple, fun and playful – bringing a retro and unique aesthetic to IKEA not seen before,’ explains Jesper Kouthoofd, head of design and founder of teenage engineering.
‘The range can help anyone become a home roadie, setting up your own sound system and light show with minimal effort,’ he adds.
You don’t need to wait for a party to invest in this collection. It will also make a fantastic statement piece in a teenagers bedroom. But be prepared for the accompanying teen soundtrack.

‘From our home visits we know that music is an integral part of the home and unites people in a powerful way,’ says Carol McSeveney, sales leader for lighting and electronics at IKEA UK and Ireland.
‘FREKVENS celebrates the interplay of sound and light within the home, creating a playful and fun environment for people to feel connected to music and each other. Apart from looking amazing, it sounds great too. It’s definitely the perfect reason to throw a party,’ she adds.
Coming soon: FREKVENS mug, £7.50, IKEA
The collection is limited-edition and will be going on sale in February.
