Today, IKEA released the first images of the interiors and products showcased in its 2018 catalog, and boy is it good. Intriguingly, the brand wants to focus on "looking beyond the walls" of your home and instead concentrate on the people who live in it, creating "a comfortable space for the important things in [life], whether it be family and friends or nature and relaxation," the press release reads.

At first glance, the catalog is rife with products that are sure to find their way into your home. Without a doubt, the hero item is a gold-colored stainless steel flatware set that will instantly make any tablescape photogenic—for only $60. Other favorites include a black tray table from its collaboration with Danish design company Hay (which we first spied during a trip to IKEA HQ) and a modern gray sleeper sofa that is perfect for small apartments.
