I hope that no matter what the internet and e-commerce may bring, our society does not let the catalog die out. There was nothing better than flipping through Sears catalogs during the holiday season, eyeing the child-sized musical instruments and the toy Jeeps. Then as teenagers, the Victoria's Secret catalog was tempting us into buying Pink yoga pants and sports bras to wear in bed, not exercising. And of course, there’s always the trusty Bed Bath & Beyond catalog, with its golden ticket of a 20% off coupon.
The Ikea catalog is one of those canonical catalogs that make our wallets feel overstuffed as soon as they come through our mail slots (or inboxes, if we’re being real). Ikea’s 2020 Catalog delivers with trend forward pieces, whether you’re looking for the perfect desk for your small space or that something extra to make it feel more elevated for less than $20.
Catalogs are also good places to find home decor inspiration, so we’ve organized the highlights according to trend. In 2020, it seems gradients are the new tie-die, pastel colors take on a new life and geometric shapes are here to stay. Most of these items are new, but some are Ikea staples because they're just that good.
