The 2011 IKEA catalog arrived in the mail the other day and I immediately began flipping pages to see what was new. Once again, Ikea has delivered a crop of really cool, stylish and oh so affordable decorative accessories, furniture, textiles and lighting.
If you’ve ever shopped at an IKEA store, you know that it can be overwhelming, even for a super shopper like me. But, I will tell you, every minute you spend in their store is time well spent.
Before I make a trip to the store, I sift through the catalog to get inspired, (the room shots are great), and to map out an initial shopping list. The range of products is incredible and the price points are mind-boggling.
After looking through the catalog several times and then spending more time on-line, I did create a list of favorite items, some that may just find their way into my next room re-do.SOLSTRALE VASE $6.99 I really love this vase and can already image how I’d use it from season to season. Since fall is approaching, I’d fill it with a few of burnt orange sunflowers.
HULTO EASY CHAIR $69.99 This is just a darling chair. I think if would look great as an accent chair in my guest bedroom.
GEDSER AREA RUG $49.99 I’ve been needing a new accent rug in my kitchen and this one just makes me smile. I love the mix of colors and the slubby texture.
EDIT PILLOW COVER $10.00 I think this pillow would look great on the chocolate brown side chair in my bedroom. I love the sophisticated color mix.
BOJA PENDANT LAMP $59.99 I don’t know exactly where I’d put this beauty but I just love it. Maybe my craft room?
TROLLSTA SIDE TABLE $79.99 I am always on the lookout for unique side tables. This is a great style that would work in the family room or as a nightstand. I love the storage space it also provides.
BERGSBO BOOKCASE WITH GLASS DOORS $249.00 A pair of these brilliant red bookcases just might have to find their way to my craft room. I love decorating with bright colors in that space because it boost my creativity. LONSBODA SCENTED CANDLE IN GLASS $3.99 This beautiful candle would work in just about any space in my home, but I think the bathroom vanity is the perfect spot. I can’t believe the price and just might have to make this my go-to Christmas gift this year. ALVIN SPETSID CUSHION COVER $10.00 How cute would this be as a little back pillow on my desk chair (below)?
PS SAGA CHAIR $69.99 Cute, cute, cute and totally magnificent as a desk chair.
KAJSA TRAD CUSHION COVER $7.00 Absolutely no place for this in my home, but when I re-do my bedroom in a black, gray and yellow color theme, this pillow will be the perfect accent. I love that it is a sophisticated look with a modern vibe.
COLBY COWHIDE RUG $199.99 Why would I buy this rug? Just because I think this rug is fabulous and a great price.
If you haven’t received an IKEA catalog, be sure to order one and then let me know what some of your favorite items are.
