5 styling ideas for Tom Dixon's new IKEA collection

Revealed earlier this year, Tom Dixon's first collection for IKEA is made to be hacked. Here are our favourite style ideas for the DELAKTIG sofa.

Tom Dixon's DELAKTIG collection for IKEA is aesthetic, affordable, long-lasting, and democratic.

Available in Australia now, the first part of the DELAKTIG series is a modular sofa and complimentary accessories. Its clean classic lines and breakaway parts and pieces are endlessly configurable and have been specifically designed to be mismatched, reworked, and hacked to suit your lifestyle and ever-changing lounging needs.

With elements of the DELAKTIG sofa starting at $70, this sofa could be the simple, flexible, cost-effective, and individual couch you've been waiting for.

Here, we've found some of the prettiest and most inventive style hacks for Tom Dixon's sofa to spur your DELAKTIG imagination. 

1. Forest florals

2. English rose

Swedish company Bemz make lounge covers specific to Ikea furniture, making it so easy to update your style whenever you please. This sunny rose pattern was designed especially for DELAKTIG by British home decor company, Designers Guild. 

3. Rich velvets

Bemz has also released a number of rich velvet covers for each part and piece of the DELAKTIG sofa, making its clean, minimalist style far more decadent and bold. With colours from deep cranberry to chestnut brown and pale peach, there are velvets to suit every room. 

4. Industrial indigo 

Here, Tom Dixon has dressed his DELAKTIG in indigo blue, under a cluster of his stunning MELT pendant lights.
