In a world of online shopping and express delivery, it’s hard to see where catalogues fit in our digital lives. That is of course, with exception to our favourite few, one of them being the long-awaited IKEA 2018 catalogue release. Hitting a mailbox near you any day now, the beautifully styled rooms give us IKEA fans a snippet of their freshest products in the coming seasons. Though you’ve most likely had a flip through already—because we know we certainly have—we felt it important to highlight some of our favourite pieces, just in case you missed them.
While we’re already practically experts in the best IKEA hacks for small spaces and know all the staple pieces interior savants own, we must say, this time the Swedish giant has definitely outdone itself with a range that matches style with function all within an affordable price range.

THE MIDCENTURY MODERN FAVOURITE
A vintage-inspired sideboard has fast become a staple feature in many a millennial home, and the Stockholm’s sleek design means extra storage without compromising on your living room’s clean aesthetic.
THE VELVET CENTREPIECE
As you may have guessed, we’re still all about the velvet trend. IKEA’s offering of textured footrests are a chic addition to any space, and they also serve as a storage space for unwanted clutter. We love that IKEA has even styled it as a booster of sorts for this sideboard.
THE versatile shape-shifter
We don’t think the rattan craze is going anywhere, mainly because its ’70s heritage makes it the perfect nostalgic nod. By adding different cushions and draping a throw over the edge, this armchair will change as you do, accommodating for growing households and smaller spaces.
We’re all about saving time, particularly during the work week. This rack is the perfect outfit-prep option if, like us, you try to eliminate morning dilemmas and prepare more mindfully for the day ahead. Set your outfits up for the week and watch as your morning routine simplifies down with ease.
THE SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE
Aside from its bowl-shaped back, which makes it a comfy eating situation, the Odger dining chair is made of renewable wood and recycled plastic, making it a feel-good purchase as well as a beautifully minimal addition to any dining space.
