I have a love-hate relationship with Ikea, as I'm sure many of you do, too. But not even my worst Ikea-shopping flashbacks can dampen my enthusiasm for the Swedish retailer's new catalogs. Ikea just posted its 2008 catalog online in an easy flip-through format that lets you peruse all 372 pages.
The store has some great new textile patterns with huge doses of color, not to mention some sleek furniture offerings. To see a few of my first-glance favorites,
Blues and seafoam green abound. I'm digging this graphic pillow (at center) and these soft-looking oceanic rugs.
This innovative flat-pack chair snaps together without any screws, and it looks like a very comfy little rocker.
Don't you love these new fabric rolls? The pop-floral pattern on the black is really eye-catching.
