IKEA and Sonos pair up will make your home sound better

Sonos and Ikea are teasing a collaboration today which could bring Sonos speakers to Ikea furniture. It's not yet known what the two companies are planning, but both have huge pedigrees. As part of the latter, Ikea also introduced a smart home hub, which could easily be extended to work with existing as well as upcoming Sonos products. Ikea doesn't typically sell products from other brands in its stores, and Sonos has never licensed its audio technology to other manufacturers.

Ikea sees this endeavor as the third step for their Home Smart division. When listening to music together people feel more inspired (25%) and they feel more loved (14%), and in addition to this 65% of all Millennials play music to make a place feel like home, further building the importance of music in the home.

The companies say they want to make it easier to play music anywhere in the home - which makes sense, since Sonos' main benefit is how easy their software makes it to set up and manage a system of speakers throughout your home. Sound creates meaning and experiences, and it can enhance life at home instantly.

FS Investment Corporation (FSIC) have shown a high EPS growth of 16.10% in the last 5 years and has earnings rose of 662.00% yoy. The collective rating of 2.2 for CSX Corporation (NASDAQ:CSX) also leans strongly towards the neutral end of the spectrum.

Sonos audio kit will be getting a dose of Scandinavian design come 2019, as the United States streaming speaker company is teaming up with IKEA.

"We believe that sound should be a considered element of home design, and together we will work with Ikea to create products and experiences that make people's home look and sound more incredible", said Sonos CEO Patrick Spence in a statement. And since the products won't launch until 2019, it may be a while before we know what exactly will result from the collaboration.
