Nice and New: Ikea's 2008 Catalog Is Online

Nice and New: Ikea's 2008 Catalog Is Online

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.

hihowareya - the IKEA stuff ranges in price from very cheap to higher end and in many styles to suit just about everyone. certainly, their very cheap plastic stuff will not last as long as say a leather sofa that is well made - they carry it all so you can get just what you need and can afford. yes, it does last a long time. i would recommend their products 100%!!

I like the look of Ikea stuff, but I was noticing some comments about the stuff being cheap and not long lasting or durable--is that something I should really be concerned about? Or are these for particular products?

as soon as it comes out my roommate and i sit with it all day and flip through it - its a tradition. there aren't any IKEA stores in NZ though so i'll have to settle for the online one for now. i am going to visit all the IKEA stores in the cities i'm visiting this november/december - Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Malaysia, Singapore (i'm stopping in bangkok, Xian and nanjing too but they don't have one). i'm so excited...i can't wait to pick up catalogues in different languages!!

heyy.... i just got this in the mail today... i love some of their couches. and they also had a really cool idea about hanging a curtain between the living area and the dining area of a small room in order to make it appear larger. :] good idea.

My whole apartment is pretty much all IKEA. I love my sofa being a smaller, more Euro scale. I'm short so my feet actually hit the floor and I don't sink in. American furniture is mostly too huge, but it's getting better.

I was so excited when I found my mom's copy. I tried to "steal" it but she saw me and told me to return it. Lol. I love their catalog.

I love IKEA!! And I am so upset that they do have one here Vegas! I mean everything is here, why not IKEA?? They had this super cute desk/workstation that I wanted to get for my office but I did purchase when I was at their store in San Diego. Now I am really regretting it because they do not have it online. :(

We just got our first Ikea here in Michigan last summer. I think the closest one was in Chicago (a near 5 hour drive). I do have an unhealthy relationship with the store, I am ashamed to say that I even went to the grand was a huge deal for Metro Detroit. I've settled down since then. I tend to buy textiles and accessories more so than large furniture pieces. The quality is questionable although everything I have is super cute, I guess I will see in due time. Excited about the catalog though!
