Ikea visit & catalogue 2013

We got our hands on the latest Ikea catalogue earlier this week and since then, Sarah has been studying the new arrivals religiously. Finally I suggested to make a trip to our local Ikea to see the new products for ourselves.
Be prepared for a long but fun post!

We started off our day by having an Ikea style lunch with my parents. Dad had Haddock and chips, I had a delicious plate of smoked salmon, Sarah and my mom had pasta, mushroom soup and a delicious slice of almond cake. Mmmm…yummmm

As we were eating, we noticed Ikea’s new membership/loyalty program, which is called Ikea Family. Just by signing up for this Ikea Family card, you can get a free coffee/tea at any of their restaurants. One lucky winner will also win a $100 gift card. Each month there will be special membership online discounts. We’re a member…..are you? Join the club!

Let the browsing shopping begin…

Love this idea with the Expedit units. And they’re only $50 buks! The arrangements are nice and functional. We stacked 2 of these babies together in our bedroom to create more storage space.

This kitchen is one of our 2 favorites at the Ikea showroom. We love the openness of the space and the use of glass door cabinet with glass shelving is a perfect fit. Open shelving is definitely a ‘must’ in our future kitchen. It makes the kitchen look so chic and modern.

A Pop of red as an accent color, subway tiles and glass cabinetry ….so modern and sophisticated

This is the other kitchen we totally fell in love with. The only thing we dislike was that pink was used as the accent color. Still, it looked great in this kitchen. Just a little too feminine for my tastes (and for our future kitchen 😉 ). But what we do love about this kitchen is the fact that Ikea has added an extra storage/pantry room to eliminate unnecessary clutter. It not only looks good but has functionality. We know we’d use it for sure, what about you?

Loving this Henriksdal chair for $99!

Knick/knacks we loved….

That’s the end of our trip to Ikea 🙂 Now its your turn to check out your local Ikea and show us what you like!
