It is perfectly appropriate to want to emulate Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter in nearly every way possible. The woman is, after all, so stylish and formidable she was able to announce her pregnancy with twins via an Instagram post so memorable it puts every single thing a Kardashian has published to shame, but beyond that, Beyoncé's been rocking stellar looks since she crawled through an uninhabited island with the other two members of Destiny's Child in the "Survivor" video. Now, you too can have a slice of Bey, thanks to a new IKEA homeware line designed by Beyonce's stylist.
The line, dubbed Omedelbar (which means "immediate" in Swedish) is designed by Bea Åkerlund, who, per London paper the Evening Standard, has fashioned famed looks for Beyoncé, as well as for Madonna, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. This particular line takes inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, with designs befitting a world through a looking glass like upside-down top hat vases, time piece-shaped wall clocks, crown-shaped gold bowls, and a pair of otherworldly black-and-white curtains.
But while you might expect decorating your home a la the number one pop star in the world might cost a chunk of change, the Omedelbar line is rather affordable, with goods starting as low as $2 and going up to about $250. Here are some of the top picks from the collection:
This vase, shaped like an upside-down top hat, will turn any tea party into a unbirthday party, Mad Hatter 'n all. It also comes in clear glass, should you prefer a slightly lighter home for your flowers, and/or assortment.
This is actually my favorite item in the collection, in part because I adore flowers, but also because I am a fan of Victorian fashion. Here, we have a vase shaped like the Mad Hatter's leg (it is not Alice's leg, for in John Tenniel's illustrations, as well as in the Disney movie, Alice is wearing Mary Janes.). I love it.
This bowl shaped like a gold crown does double duty, referencing both the King and Queen of Hearts and Queen Bey. (Also the White Queen, if you have an undeserving soft spot for Tim Burton's Alice adaptation, but you shouldn't).
The White Rabbit was always my favorite Alice in Wonderland character, in part because though I am a stickler for punctuality, I am always late. Honor him with this time piece-shaped wall clock, and also by showing up at least 10 minutes after you're supposed to.
There's not a whole lot I'd drop $129 on at this point, but this spectacularly spooky mirror makes the splurge list. Bonus points if it boasts magical powers that'll take me through the looking glass, ha, get it? I'll show myself out.
