The 10 best designs from Ikea’s amazing 2018 catalog

By now, you probably know that the Ikea 2018 catalog is in stores and online. The Swedish retailers’s new slogan, Making room for life, is its way of expressing what we all want: to surround ourselves with things we love, whether we live in a tiny house or a mansion.

In Ikea’s world of smart design, inexpensive accessories can make your house look like a million bucks, and clever furnishings come in cool shapes. But I also love how the catalog shows off those irresistible products in settings that inspire us to use our creativity to make it all work together.

Ikea encourages us to add interest to our homes using inexpensive, eye-catching accessories like this Tillsyn hourglass.

2. Accent with light, bright colors.

Picture a pair of these yellow Koarp armchairs in a living room setting. If you have space in a bedroom, you can use a bright, comfortable chair like this to create a little reading nook for yourself.

Brilliant yellow chairs and accessories are like streaks of lightning, illuminating rooms that include them. If the backgrounds are dark, you need something bright for balance. The yellow Koarp armchair looks so bright and comfortable, it could be the focal point of your kid’s playroom or your living room—even if that’s the same room.

3. Glitz is good.
