Our 10 FAVOURITE buys from the brand new Ikea catalogue

For Ikea fans, the month of August is pretty much the highlight of the year.

We are now just days away from the 2018 catalogue hitting stores across the globe, and we are literally dying to get our hands on the brand new 324-page book.

And we are not alone. With more than 200 million copies printed and distributed every year, the Ikea catalogue ranks alongside the Bible, the Quran and Harry Potter as one of the absolute favourite books in the world.

Lucky for you, we have been granted a few sneak peaks, and can report plenty of new products, an anticipated limited edition collection and some seriously inspiring decorating ideas.

Like always, this year's catalogue also comes with a focus, and this year the Swedish design giant wants us all to show our living rooms a little love with the "Make room for life" theme, which "highlights home-furnishing solutions that enable people to live a better everyday life at home by helping them make room for the things they love," according to a statement from Ikea.

Curious as to what you can expect? Well; here are 10 buys we will race you to the store to get our hands on:

1. Eket wall-mounted cabinet combination

This clever and eye-catching storage unit is bound to become a new cult buy.


Eket storage combination, €270

2. Söderhamn sofa in pink

We have been fans of Ikea's Söderhamn modular sofa for a while, and love that you can put it together in different ways, getting a sofa that suits your home perfectly. However, we love it even more now in this new pink hue.

3. Lillebo train set

Little people will no doubt love this 20-piece train set.

4. Ypperlig table

Part of the new HAY collection, we think this is pretty much side-table perfection.

We are going to be glamming up our dining tables this fall with this gorgeous 24-piece brass-coloured cutlery set. Not to mention how festive this will look on your table come Christmas.

7. Tertial desk lamp

We love adding little punch of colour to our rooms, and this yellow desk lamp is both pretty and practical.

We can never have enough storage, and these chic baskets are perfect for either our bedrooms, bathrooms, or even hallways, helping to keep our lives more organized.

9. Ivar cabinet

Pale wood is all sorts of chic right now, and if you get bored with this look in time, you can paint this cabinet whatever colour you want. Win-win.

We love the marble-look of this pretty new dinnerware.
