Every year sees the release of a new Ikea catalog, and with it, the collective dream-sigh of budget-minded homebodies everywhere. Unlike its girthier cousin, the Restoration Hardware catalog, the Ikea edition is a borderline-achievable romance novel for your apartment, complete with assurances that you can build most everything inside yourself.
This year, the catalog theme is Goodbye expectations. Hello you! which sounds like an inspirational game show hosted by Ashton Kutcher. Ikea hopes to offer up "solutions that help people to live a life free of traditional expectations," in order to "rediscover the simple joy of cooking, eating, and being together." Sounds like a plan.
