This summer IKEA released their new product catalog and I immediately spent about 2 hours dog-earing pages and ripping items out for future reference. Though IKEA is generally considered to be low cost and short life term products there are usually some real gems hidden among the other items.  So better late than never (since this catalog came out in July eeek), check out some of my favorite new IKEA products!


favorite new ikea products

A  Norraryd Dining Chair is a simple clean chair that would be a great addition to any transitional kitchen or modern farmhouse dining room.

B.  GRÖNADAL Rocking Chair  is a GEM! Such a unique style and scale. I love any opportunity to add in some diverse texture and material into a space! This rocker would be the perfect complement to an organic mod nursery or an eclectic living space.


C.  Soderhamn Chaise is on trend with the muted and soft colors we have been seeing in fashion and interiors. Add this to the corner of your master bedroom to create a cozy and romantic little nook.


sacrificing  high budget does not have to mean sacrificing high- style

D.  Kopardal Bed  is such a simple and affordable piece that I just can’t ignore it. It’s clean and minimal lines mean it can flex to so many different design styles, depending on what else it is combined with.


E + F.  Gorlose Rug + Sattrup Rug are both great options for adding texture, color and pattern into your space. The off-beat shape of the Sattrup rug is an interesting departure from your standard rug shapes and sizes! 

G.  Kalvia Cabinet Door Fronts. LOVE! There are several applications of this pattern on various products including textiles and backsplash material but I am just obsessing over these cabinet door fronts! I think they are a great solution for creating a unique and visually impactful kitchen without that custom budget. I am waiting for the perfect project to use these—any takers?!


H + I. Svarten Pillow Covers  Riding the coattails of the Kalvia line, the Svarten line of textiles have the same graphic inspired patterns in bold black + white schemes. There are a bunch of different patterns and sizes to choose from — and starting at $5 per pillow cover you can afford to take a risk!



J.  Anvandbar Curtain Panel is a sleek and modern take on a banded drape or a hotel stripe curtain. The little band of green running along the outer edge adds some unexpected color and interest.



K.  Fladis Baskets are another great way to add texture and function a space. Use them to stash away kids toys or use the basket as a decorative holder for a large potted floor plant.

You can see there is a clear pattern to my favorites this year. Abstract,painterly like patterns, black + white schemes with high contrast, and injections of natural materials and textures. This board looks like it’s ready to be sent out to an eDesign client. Like what you see and think you might be interested in working together on your design + renovation project? Let’s chat!
