Best of Ikea 2014 (according to moi)

Did anyone else get the new Ikea catalogue in the mail this week?!  I'm giddy about it!  And totally ready for a field trip...

Now, I literally had a conversation with my friend about Ikea yesterday--about how we've finally [and gladly] graduated to the point in life where, piece by piece, we replace Ikea furniture with "real stuff."  But, I will say, that's mostly in reference to the janky birch-colored particle board stuff from college days (say hello to my current bedroom).  Not Ikea's best era.  They really have upped their game lately, and especially with 2014's newly released designs.  

You can check out the entire digital catalogue HERE, or you can order a hard copy to be mailed to you.  But it's a lot to sift through, so...

Here is a list of some of my favorite new Ikea items from the 2014 rollout!!

  • Bekvam stool: love how they staged it below with dipped legs.  You could easily paint any part of this to make it your own!  (obvi I swoon for bright orange!!)

There are so many adorable new Children's department products too.  Not in the market for those yet, but just a mentally pin-now-read-later kinda thing:

A teeny tiny Expedit bookshelf?!  I mean...  All so cute.  Love it, Ikea!
