Oh Ikea, how I love thee. Your furniture. Your pillows. Your ads. And now your Ikea 2017 catalog.
Remember this gem of a commercial?
So good, right?
I love that that Ikea products help me create budget-friendly spaces for my clients. No, I’m not going to furnish your entire space with Ikea, but if you’re on a budget, we can select some key investment pieces and infuse some gorgeous, stylish Ikea pieces to help finish the space, it’s the perfect solution to keep your budget in check.
And now, they have more options to help me do that! I was pumped when they launched their 2017 catalog, it does NOT disappoint, homies.
Here’s my favourite five new items from the 2017 Ikea catalog (available for purchase now!)
The GRÖNADAL Rocking Chair $149 CAD
Holy crap. This is my absolute favourite of all the new products. Adding textural elements in a space is important to creating a space that feels polished. Couple this chair with a sheepskin throw or the perfect pillow and this bad boy is a designers dream.
This rocking chair is going to be used in a space soon, I promise you that! (Hey universe, bring me a space this can be used in!)
Here’s what Lisa Hilland, the designer has to say about this piece, “I designed GRÖNADAL with the idea of making a rocking-chair that unites unexpected meetings between materials and expressions. Rattan and ash are lively natural materials that age with grace, creating an interesting contrast to the powder-coated steel. The back and seat are handwoven using traditional techniques, while the airy shape connects to modern Scandinavian design.”
Nailed it Lisa!
The GLADOM Tray Table $29 CAD
This gem is available in two colours (green and yellow) and is the perfect modern table that is small enough to be used anywhere! Plus, the GLADOM tray table comes with a removable tray that looks nice by itself placed on an ottoman or wherever it’s used for serving. Whaaaat?!
The ELVARLI STORAGE SYSTEM Starting from $184 CAD
I’ve already got ideas and plans for the ELVARLI storage system! I have a commercial project in the works that I think this might be the perfect solution for! This system can be used in a walk-in closet, or look absolutely stunning as an open concept closet or as a room divider.
So good Ikea, SO GOOD!
The SKOGSKLÖVER BLIND Starting from $19.99
The SKOGSKLÖVER Blind is affordable, whether you want to just use the blind for a more modern and minimalist look or pair this up with curtains and you’ve got the perfect polished look (and it comes in three colours!).
Affordable and stylish window treatments are always a hit in my book!
The BLÅVINDA DUVET COVER $59.99 CAD
I love the casual and sophisticated look and feel of the BLÅVINDA Duvet Cover. It’s got a classic pinstripe that feels neutral, light and airy. Pair it with some killer throw pillows and your bedroom will transform into an oasis.
