Emoji聽are our jam. The little pieces of art enable us to聽express our thoughts in a more animated manner聽to our friends (see also:聽GIFs). Sometimes our phones don鈥檛 have that one specific character we鈥檙e looking for to really get our point across though. Seriously, why use words when pictures are an option? With so many second-party emoji apps,聽there鈥檚聽thousands (millions?) of additional emoticons to play with. But you know what鈥檚 really been missing from the emoji catalog is options from聽everyone鈥檚 fave DIY furniture co. Not anymore ;)

Yep, we know you have been craving a keyboard filled with Swedish meatballs, a hugging heart, IKEA furniture and so much more. So聽IKEA聽went and released its very own catalog of emoji for your conversations.

The process to getting the keyboard on your phone is much simpler than building a Brimnes聽bed. After downloading the app (available on聽iOS聽+ Android聽devices) all you have to do is hit up your phone鈥檚 settings and add the database of emoticons to your current keyboard. Then indulge in some Swedish meatballs, naturally 鈥斅vegans, you too!
