Have you ever woken up "on the wrong side of the bed"? It may be just an expression but the functionality and comfort of our bedrooms and bathrooms really do affect our quality of life, which is why IKEA decided to center their 2015 catalog around those two very important spaces. Yesterday, Inhabitat attended a preview of the mailer, themed "Where the Everyday Begins and Ends", and discovered a slew of efficient, space-saving and eco-friendly furniture and other products. Step inside our photo gallery to sneak a peek before the catalog drops next month.
“Everyone goes to sleep and wakes up, but everything in between those moments is very personal,” said Patty Lobell, Sales Manager, IKEA U.S. “We all have individual needs when it comes to our morning and evening routines. IKEA understands how people live and we use that knowledge to create solutions to help you make the most of your personal spaces so you can make the most of you.”
Here are a few highlights:
Group two IKEA PS rolling wardrobes ($24.99 each) together to create a headboard for your bed or combine a whole bunch of them to make a room divider.
Miss Expedit? Meet Kallax ($64.99), the lighter version of the beloved bookcases that gives the same functionality while reducing shipping emissions and materials. And don’t worry. Your existing Expedit inserts and boxes will still fit perfectly fine in a new Kallax.
These delightful rugs are actually made up of older rugs that have been washed, cut up and stitched together. No two are exactly alike.
If underbed storage drawers aren’t enough for you, the Malm queen storage bed ($499) pops open to give you even more space to store larger items.
The Komplement valet hanger ($5) allows you to plan out outfits for the next day to avoid frustration when getting ready. The metal punched out to create the holes is also reused as rod ends in other IKEA wardrobe systems.
Check out our gallery to see even more items.
As with all other IKEA products, the furnishings in the PS 2014 line were designed with sustainability in mind and are made of eco-conscious materials like FSC-certified wood, bamboo, cotton, and recyclable or recycled plastics.
The 2015 IKEA catalog will be available to the public in August.
