One of the best things to happen this week: The release of the IKEA Catalog 2020.
This year’s theme is “Save our Sleep” and it’s crafted around the research that shows global average for hours slept has fallen from 8 to a little over 6 in the last 50 years.
I personally know my day will be full of coffee spills, stubbed toes and embarrassing typos when I have less than my ideal 8 hours. So this issue is very close to heart.
As expected there are lots of cozy, plush beddings, blackout blinds and snooze inducing ideas. I likey.
IKEA Catalog 2020 and the 5 core emotional needs of home
Besides that, the catalog features 5 different homes. Each home is designed to show situations and solutions that help illustrate the five core emotional needs, when people talk about home.
According to IKEA they are a sense of belonging, ownership (or control), security, comfort and privacy.
Needless to say, each home is a study in itself. When you get your hands on your copy, pore over the details to see how the rooms work. Lots of inspiration on every page.
And of course, no catalog is complete without the introduction of bright shiny new products.
These are my 20 favorites from the IKEA Catalog 2020
SLÄKT twin bed frame with storage – $279.00
Well, if you were thinking of hacking a MALM platform storage bed, you don’t have to anymore.
BUSKBO ARMCHAIR + DJUPVIK cushion – $160
In my books, rattan will never lose its charm. So this one sits well with me.
LUBBAN serving cart – $69
Love how functional this is. It works in the living room as a side table. Or bedroom as a nightstand. And so easy to move around.
NISSAFORS cart – $24.99
Yes, another cart! Isn’t this just waiting to be converted into a drinks cart?
NIKKEBY 4 drawer dresser – $79
Is this the new IKEA PS cabinet?
SLATTUM upholstered queen bed frame – $129
I dig how classy and unfussy this is. A classic in the making.
SAXBORGA storage box with mirrored lid – $19.99
This is a brilliant vanity kit for those who don’t have space for a dressing table.
VENNESLA table mirror – $59.99
A round mirror with a drawer nested in its stand. Prop it on any flat surface and there you have it, a makeup vanity.
MÖJLIGHET mirror – $29.99
Another mirror that caught my eye. It comes with a phone holder (makeup tutorials, here we come!), a small bowl for trinkets and hooks.
MÖJLIGHET noticeboard/whiteboard with basket – $34.99
Still in the MÖJLIGHET range, a cute noticeboard and whiteboard combo. Handy basket for pens, notes, etc.
TRANARÖ stool/side table – $19.99
The half-circle metal stool/ side table is so versatile. Use one as a side table or stool, put two together for a coffee table. Love it when furniture can serve more than one function.
VONSBÄK low pile rug (5′ 7 ” x 7′ 7″) – $69.99
Vintage rugs can cost an arm and a leg. This is IKEA’s version with the essential worn out vintage vibe. Comes in 4 different sizes. I hope it looks just as good in person.
LAUTERS floor lamp – $49.99
Height-adjustable lamp shade that will go well in any corner of the room. The shade is made from recycled PET bottles. Also comes in a slightly more expensive version with LED bulb.
LIVSVERK vase – $12.99
So pretty. This vase is all calm and serenity.
TRANGET rug , flatwoven – $229
This is the distant cousin of the STOCKHOLM rug — the blue one.
SKUGGBRÄCKA Duvet cover and pillowcase – $24.99
If you’re into high contrast, this one’s for you.
MELLÖSA picture ledge, clear, $12.99
The new RIBBA picture ledge. Transparent ledges that let your pictures and objects shine.
LISTERBY console table, $99
SVENSHULT Wall shelf with storage – $29.99
Used in multiples, this arched shelving unit becomes a playful wall statement.
NIKKEBY clothes rack – $60
IKEA made this as a clothes rack, but I also see plant stand and room divider. What about you?
