Sonos and IKEA Team Up December 7, 2017 Hold on tight kids. Your favorite anger inducing furniture may be getting even more complicated. The popular Swedish furniture company IKEA has just announced a surprising partnership with the multi-room speaker maker Sonos. According to IKEA, in 2019 it plans on introducing a new line of furniture that will integrate music into the home. According to Business Leader of Ikea Home Smart Björn Block, “When we asked people what sound they associate with their homes many people mentioned that it is music that makes a home. Together with Sonos, we want to democratize music and sound in the home, and we want to create products designed for how people listen together at home. By teaming up with Sonos, we want to combine Ikea home furnishing knowledge with Sonos’ expertise within great home sound.” What the end result of this partnership will be is anyone’s guess. Whether IKEA plans on incorporating Sonos speakers into a line of cabinetry or television consoles, we can only speculate on what they have in store. One thing we do know is that IKEA’s cozy room models are uniquely suited to double as speaker demo rooms. 2019 is still pretty far off, so we have plenty of time for more details to emerge so stay tuned.Please like & share: You must log in to post a comment.
