IKEA's Bold and Playful Summer Collection Will Make You Smile So Hard



It's no secret that February is often the coldest month of the year. Already, there's been a polar vortex, bringing icy weather and unexpected storms to cities across the country. While you're likely searching for dry skin saviors, warm coats, and general refuge from chilly climates, others are already getting ready for summer.

If you think it's too early to be preparing for backyard barbeques, weekend trips to the coast, and afternoon picnics, think again. IKEA recently launched their summer collection for 2019 and it's as bright and playful as a day at the beach.

Quite literally, the new collection features just about everything you need for a day by the sea. That includes graphic beach towels, sturdy picnic baskets, and colorful food storage containers. The collection also offers whimsical outdoor lighting options, as well as other summer essentials like cushion covers, wine coolers, and tablecloths adorned with bold prints.

Released right smack dab in the middle of winter, this collection serves as a welcome refresh from dark moody colors, subtle patterns, and muted prints of the colder months. Instead, it's bold, bright, graphic, and loud—everything summer should be. Ready to indulge in a bit of warm weather daydreaming? Shop IKEA's newest collection below. It's about as close to summer as you'll get before May.
