Our 10 Picks from Ikea’s 40th Catalogue

With so many options hitting the well-mapped-out floor, we’ve narrowed down this season’s must-haves.

1. Söderhamn Chaise

Typically a chaise can be quite an awkward addition to a living room, demanding wall space and isolation from other furniture. But the purposefully-designed straight edges on the Söderhamn chaise ($450) mean it can be set adjacent to other items or stand alone, making it a practical addition to any lounge area.

2. Alseda Stool

Made from banana fibre, this Alseda stool ($39.99) could also be used as a footrest or as that place in your living room where you dump books or magazines—we all have that place, right?

3. Pendant Lamp in White and Copper

The design of the new PS 2014 pendant lamp ($159) allows for a touch of metallic that can be adjusted to suit your room. This lamp is crying out to be hung over an industrial-style table in a lightly coloured dining room.

4. Bittergurka Plant Pot

This plant pot ($15.99) almost encourages us to try harder to keep our plants alive. Almost. The steel pot with a white powder coating and bamboo feet make this simple silhouette a great addition to any space.

5. Sinnerlig Stool

These natural cork stools ($59.99) are both dirt-repellant and pretty to look at. Available in two colour palettes, the stools can hold up to 220lbs. (Hey, we’re not here to judge…).

6. Övraryd Table Top with Backaryd Underframe

This white bamboo table top ($159) contrasts nicely with the steel frame ($40) to create a clean, simple finish perfect for a smaller space.

7. Grönadal Rocking Chair

The back rest and seat of this rocking chair ($149) are handwoven, creating a loose comfort that people can actually sit on rather than a decorative rocking chair rarely used by guests.

8. Roskilde Rug

The blue hues on the Roskilde rug ($149) will compliment any neutral space, and the fact that it’s flatwoven makes it perfect to place underneath a dining set as chairs can be easily moved.

9. Stillhet Tealight Holder

Challenge your guests to guess where these stainless steel tealight holders ($7.99) are from—bet they won’t be able to.

10. Sektion Wall Cabinets with Kalvia Printed Doors

This combination of a classic storage piece and brand new printed doors ($936) from the Kalvia range merge to create a feature furniture item that looks more like artwork than shelves.
