Have you ever wanted to have a giant rug that looks like an IKEA receipt be the focal point of your living room? Well, now's your chance. The new MARKERAD IKEA collection is an artistic spin on household items and it's available on November 1.\nMARKERAD, a collaboration between IKEA and fashion designer Virgil Abloh, combines everyday household items like rugs, tables and pillows with design elements the designer is known for in a 15-item collection being sold in IKEA stores across the country.\nAbloh is the founder and CEO of the fashion label Off-White and an artistic director at Louis Vuitton. Now his signature minimalist designs are making their way to IKEA to offer shoppers statement pieces that are practical but will also be focal points in any room.\n"I want each item to bring people a sense of pride, and I want the great design to be the biggest reason why you get it," said Abloh in an IKEA handout.\nOne of the most eye-catching pieces is a rug that looks exactly like a huge IKEA receipt. And the receipt rug is actually a receipt for the receipt rug. What a trip.\nThe rug is two feet by seven feet and only costs $99 CAD.\n"The receipt is a trademark in itself that has been transformed into art. I think that this rug can just as easily be on a floor or hung on a wall - in both scenarios, the rug highlights the entire story which IKEA embodies," Abloh said.\nView this post on Instagram My sneaker closet just got a bit more hype with a few pieces from Virgil Abloh's latest collab with @IKEACanada’s limited edition #MARKERAD collection that drops in-store this Friday November 1st. To shop, each store will give wristbands to the first 300 IKEA Family members to visit starting at 6am – first come, first serve, in store only – after that, the collection will open to the public at 12pm while supplies last. For details on the buying process or to join the IKEA Family, visit IKEA.ca & make sure you head to your local IKEA Canada store on November 1st to shop the MARKERAD collection. #IKEAxVirgil #ad A post shared by HAWLEY DUNBAR (@hawleydunbar) on Oct 28, 2019 at 2:10pm PDT\nThe collaboration first came about back in 2017 when IKEA and Abhol teamed up to explore what kind of statement pieces first-time homebuyers would want to purchase for their homes that were practical but also eye-catching. Thus MARKERAD was born.\nIt will finally be available to shoppers on November 1.\nAside from the trippy receipt rug, the 15-item collection has everything from a clock to a tool kit to a table and chairs to the Mona Lisa.\nThere are even the classic reusable IKEA shopping bags that are brown, not the bright blue and yellow plastic.\nA lot of the items have writing on them with Abhol's signature quotation marks to add a sense of irony and humour to the pieces.\nView this post on Instagram “OUR HOME” We are so excited about @IKEACanada's limited edition #MARKERAD collection designed in collaboration with our friend @virgilabloh This collection is everything! The “SCULPTURE” bags are functional, highly collectible and Dolly our dog is obsessed with the “Green Grass” rug! lol! Every piece, is a piece of art! A bold design statement! We love how cool all of the design objects are. Virgil turns everyday objects into design icons. On Friday November 1st, IKEA family members will be able to exclusively shop the MARKERAD collection at all IKEA stores across Canada.

There is a limited quantity of items that you can purchase from the collection.\nItems in the collection range from $9.99 CAD to $349 CAD.\nIf you want to get your hands on that huge IKEA receipt rug you'll have to actually go into a store to do it. The collection isn't available for purchase online.\nThere are stories everywhere.
