True confession: I have been preserving one thing – a deep darkish adorning secret – from you pretty individuals. Final week, IKEA despatched me an advance copy of the brand new 2018 catalog. I have been carrying it from my desk to my bedside desk and again once more every day, sneaking peeks at any time when I may. I’ve already taken the all-important steps of measuring potential placement spots and attaching post-its to the pages that require my additional consideration as potential buys (as you’ll be able to see above!).
Sure, it is that point of 12 months — and actually, at the least to me, the brand new catalog really is at all times slightly little bit of the “Christmas in July” factor — a giant bunch of limitless adorning prospects, multi functional neat little package deal.
The brand new paper catalog might be available in shops beginning August 2nd (and you can request your copy now) and might be online on August seventh. The brand new content material within the catalog app will even drop on the seventh and can characteristic movies and the fun-to-play-with augmented actuality characteristic.
The theme of the 2018 catalog is all about “making room for life”. In a press release that feels very a lot consistent with the Residence Remedy mission (so I can positively relate, massive time), IKEA says…
No matter pockets dimension or residing area, 2018 is about enabling you to make extra room for the belongings you love in your life — that will help you get just a few steps nearer to your dream house.
They go on to state…
It is about trying past the partitions of your own home and never letting them decide what you need it to be. It prompts you to ask your self what it’s you need extra room for in your life — whether or not it’s family and friends, nature, rest, or possibly a bit additional room to do nothing in any respect.
I LOVE this new theme and total perspective; embracing a wholesome, practical and constructive approach to consider house.
Peppered all through the merchandise within the 2018 catalog are particular options, giving it an editorial slant which is an pleasing new course. The options embody sections on adorning suggestions, concepts and how-tos on issues like plant care and telling tales by means of vignettes. There’s a particular part on a brilliant cool Parisian designer’s house in Copenhagen (wait till you see it — the colour palette is darkish, dramatic and really vintage-glam). An analogous characteristic on a younger British current design graduate and his first condo in Berlin is equally intriguing; all about stylish simplicity. Information on sustainability, decreasing meals waste and designer collaborations spherical out the magazine-like sections of the catalog.
And, lastly, with out additional ado, to rejoice the 2018 catalog drop here’s a completely subjective prime 10 checklist of favourite new merchandise from IKEA. They’re a mixture of these which might be showing within the catalog for the primary time (marked “new” within the catalog and included right here as scans) and super-brand new releases which had been included within the August IKEA information blast which I obtained together with the catalog (included right here as official IKEA product images).
OK, HERE WE GO.
