Ikea and Sonos have partnered to create a speaker collection that can double as lamps and stands.

The new collection includes a SYMFONISK table lamp with wi-fi speaker that seamlessly blends into a living room or bedroom. Joining the lamp speaker hybrid is another speaker that can be mounted to walls and used as a small nightstand or table.
