This Ikea Bench Has Been Dubbed "PANGET" and We're Sure You'd Disagree
Does it match your aesthetic?
(SPOT.ph) While we have yet to see if IKEA (pronounced ee-kay-uh) is pushing through with their 2021 opening in the Philippines, our feeds have since been peppered with cool finds from the home store hailing from Sweden. Case in point: Their PANGET storage bench, which is part of their PANGET series. Yup, you read that right. A quick Google search tells us that "panget" in Swedish is loosely translated to "hostel" or "guesthouse"—which makes more sense than what we know about the word in the local language.
IKEA's PANGET series includes a shoe storage, hat and clothes hangers, a bench and a matching table—which may or may not match your "panget" aesthetic. They were designed by Brother-sister design duo Knut and Marianne Hagberg.
