New IKEA Catalogue sets home décor trends for 2009
Aug '08
For over 60 years, IKEA has been a driving force in creating accessible interior design for the many and in turn has become a leading authority on home décor trends all around the world.

This week, over 160 million people world wide will pore over the pages of the much anticipated 2009 IKEA Catalogue to be inspired by the newest must-have products and clever solutions for their homes.

"The 2009 IKEA Catalogue offers an expanded range of high quality furniture, kitchens and mattresses to meet the design tastes and lifestyle needs of our customers." Says Madeleine Lowenborg-Frick, Public Relations Manager, IKEA Canada.

"Three identifiable trends have emerged from the new 2009 IKEA Collection with products that can easily be combined with heirlooms or more expensive pieces in order to support a wide range of lifestyles."

The high contrast of black and white can be found for every room in the house. The new sophisticated high gloss white VINSTRA storage solutions for the bedroom add a glamorous dimension, while the new APPLAD kitchen in matte black is an ultra modern alternative to traditional kitchen styles.

The design of the new black or white leather TIRUP swivel chair was inspired by a cupped hand. The chrome surface on the plate under the chair creates an exciting mirror effect that brings in the room as part of the chair design.

Colour continues as a strong trend for 2009 with a strong presence of yellow, orange and green. Known for playful, bright Scandinavian design, IKEA continues with bold choices for home décor.

Colour is not just for accent pieces anymore, the adventurous decorator can create entire kitchens with the new APPLAD yellow or orange door styles.

The new TROLLSTA series of tables with it's distinct curvy silhouettes makes a statement in canary yellow. Even the bedroom gets a pop of colour with the new trendy green felt-upholstered GRIMEN bed.

It is no secret that the world is focused on all things environmental and with this consciousness has emerged a trend towards nature inspired style. The 2009 IKEA Collection is no exception.

Textiles and artwork are heavily influenced with nature motifs, even patterned glass lighting use inspiration from flowers and snowflakes. Larger pieces like the KARLSTAD sofa has a new leaf textile.

The new SOLAR kitchen door is manufactured out of core beech which is a blond wood with an apparent wood grain, giving the kitchen a rustic yet contemporary Scandinavian style. This door style also features an integrated handle leaving the overall kitchen with a sleek facade.
