The two companies are offering college roommates advice, inspiration and products that help both parties explore their individuality, while maintaining a happy environment that they can both co-exist in.
In the informative, collaborative video, the lifestyle brand outlines how IKEA's products can be used to help a city-dwelling minimalist and a memorabilia-hoarding sports star share a communal living space. The video outlines various storage and seating options that appeal to both aesthetics, while encouraging personalization and customization, wherever possible.
