The highly anticipated IKEA 2018 Catalog has recently arrived in our mailboxes! Together with the arrival of the catalog, certain new products released have caught the attention of the decor warriors at &Whyte. We are currently in the midst of revamping our little office, so we found these products really great for maximising small spaces. Here are some products you may want to keep on your radar during your next trip to IKEA:
SVALNÄS wall-mounted storage combination + ODGER Chair
Have a taste for Scandinavian-styled furniture? The SVALNÄS Wall-mounted storage combination ($690) is a great way to hide or display your little household ornaments while taking advantage of vertical room space. If you do not have much space, you can even opt for the 2-column variant. The ODGER chair ($95) is also a handy guest chair for Scandi-furniture hunters on a budget, for it comes in various earthly, woody tones. Made with recycled plastic and renewable wood, the textured appearance of the ODGER chair goes really well with other wooden furniture in the house.
Always losing your keys, hairbands and other tiny items? The MYRHEDEN frame ($25.90) might be the most aesthetic clutter fix you’ll ever need. Just pin up some emergency birthday cards, a pair of shades, and you’ll never have to leave the house forgetting something.
PUDDA Basket + MACKAPÄR Hat and coat rack
IKEA seems to know how little entryway space people have, such that having a coat closet is a luxury. The MACKAPÄR Hat and coat rack ($29.90) maximises the use of vertical space to let you grab your favourite cardigan on a chilly day (or a hat on a sunny day) before you leave the house. The PUDDA Basket ($7.90), available in 2 sizes, is a great way to store your accessories and extension plug.
MACKAPÄR Coat rack with shoe storage unit + RAGGISAR Basket
“Capsule wardrobe” has been used by many minimalist lifestyle bloggers and YouTubers to declutter their clothes or curb a shopping problem, so IKEA’s new MACKAPÄR Coat rack with shoe storage unit ($79) is a great starter for those who want to build a capsule wardrobe. The set of 3 RAGGISAR Baskets ($7.90) are a great companion if you ever find storing little pieces of accessories and scarves difficult in a capsule wardrobe.
STOCKHOLM Cabinet + GLATTIS Tray
White, grey and brown tones can get a bit repetitive, even when you love muted, earthy tones. How about a splash of gold with the GLATTIS Tray ($19.90), a brass-colour tray with a protective edge to keep the contents in? We think that the GLATTIS Tray can be used for so many functions: a purely ornamental decor, a serving tray for fancy cocktails, or even a jewelry dish! The airy STOCKHOLM Cabinet ($499), made of natural rattan, can be a well-ventilated shoe cabinet to keep unwanted odor away!
