The Best Products From IKEA's Brand-New 2017 Catalog

Today, IKEA introduced its 2017 catalog, available beginning on August 15, 2016. This year's theme is "Goodbye, expectations. Hello, you!" and will promote a lifestyle free from the binds of traditional household expectations. Within the catalog's 300-plus pages, you'll find "new product offerings, home furnishing inspiration, and smart solutions for every area of the home," according to a press release.

"We want to start a conversation about the pressures we knowingly or unknowingly put on ourselves when it comes to life at home,” said Shideh Hashemi, the marketing manager at IKEA U.S. "We want to enable people to just relax, embrace simplicity, and enjoy their time at home."

While there are new products for every area of the home, the 2017 catalog focuses particularly on life in and around the kitchen. From a dining table that doubles as a desk to a fully transportable mini kitchen set, the new collection aims to provide products as versatile and flexible as the customers themselves.

Take a first look at the new catalog below, and then shop IKEA's available pieces.
