The 2019 IKEA Catalog went live online today and will be arriving in homes and stores soon. I’ve gone through the entire thing, along with the media kits sent my way, and chosen the best of what’s new. Starting with the pink chair on the cover that I must customize and find a home for immediately…
• VEDBO Armchair
My favorite IKEA chair now comes stocked in my favorite color! Very exciting. I still think painting the legs would make a great chair even better, and I want the get that new pink one and paint the base tomato red. Or mustard/ochre. Or aubergine.
• BESTÅ with VASSVIKEN Doors
The doors are not yet listed on the site, but they’re a welcome addition to the flexible BESTÅ series. So chic.
• BJÖRKSNÄS 5-Drawer Chest • HANNALILL Curtains
Scandinavian style fits nicely in so many interiors, and that dresser would look great in its natural birch state or painted. The curtains are made in part from recycled plastic.
• VADHOLMA Kitchen Island with Pot Rack
Look at that beefy butcher block! The island and rack can be combined, or the island can stand alone as-is.
• STOCKSUND Sofa
I’m partial to a roll-arm and this sofa style has been at IKEA for a few years, but the patterned cover is new (and not yet on the site).
• OTTAVA Pendant Lamp
Years and years ago, IKEA sold a silver fisherman-style pendant lamp. This feels like a callback and an update at the same time.
• LANDSKRONA Sofa, Sectional, Loveseat, and Chair
Yummy new colors make the line look fresh.
• GRADVIS Pink Vase
One of those easy to pick up little items for a quick home update. (Again, thanks for all the pink, IKEA. Much appreciated.)
• GLITTRIG Candlesticks • VATTENKRASSE Watering Can
Two lovely new options for utilitarian decor items. The watering can is particularly lovely.
• BROR Utility Cart
Simple and good-looking, and so handy. And am I swayed by the beautiful setting and styling here? MAYBE. But I’m not complaining.
You can browse through the whole catalog right here. Is there anything that caught your eye that I missed?

I saw that chest of drawers in person and it’s very handsome. Kind of stopped me in my tracks and made me wonder where I could put it in my house.

Eek! We need a new sofa… Loving the LANDSKRONA in the new minty color and those legs!

I bought a Vedbo chair (the one with the short back) in June and LOVE it. Not over-padded, and might feel small to someone who is large, but it’s neither too far from the floor nor too deep for my somewhat short legs to comfortably reach the floor and let my feet sit flat. It’s also versatile enough to work as an extra dining chair, or in the bedroom when the wildfire smoke had me confined to the only filtered room.
