While we’ve been busy nabbing awesome summer IKEA finds for under $20 and color-dipping our IKEA hacks into super individualized designs, the folks over at IKEA have been prepping for one of the most exciting days of the year: The release of their annual catalog! And this year, oh yeah, you better believe it’s totally decor drool-worthy. Showing shoppers how their home can be as comfortable as it can be functional and stylish, this year IKEA wants you to say, “Goodbye expectations. Hello you!”
As IKEA puts it: “A lot of people feel pressured in their everyday life… We want people to care less about other people’s opinions — and more about what they want themselves.” With that, the Swedish home decor retailer has given us more amazing options than we can handle when it comes to choosing how we want to update our homes this year.
KLÄTTA decoration stickers will definitely be among your fave new offerings from IKEA, allowing you to simply peel and place faux frames, world maps and letters to your walls in order to create your own words or sayings. They’ll look adorable in the same room as the GLADOM tray tables that are both modern looking and small enough to fit in any space you need.
Colorful new LIXHULT cabinets and the ELVARLI storage system will keep your space stylishly organized, while the VARV clamp spotlight will show off your super-chic home. Meanwhile the new VALLENTUNA seating series addresses the need to make areas multifunctional, which is why this collection allows you to combine sections for seating, sleeping and storage, while also mixing and matching different covers to create a very unique, personal combination.
The new KALVIA add-on front will easily give some extra snazziness to your kitchen cabinet doors with more than a little splash of artistic elegance. And while you’re updating your eating area, opt for the BARKABODA countertop that has the gorgeous refined-yet-rustic vibe you’ve been looking for.
With plenty of stylish new options all giving your home a fresh and relaxed feel, you won’t want to miss this year’s IKEA offering.
