This year, we’re showcasing how food connects people, and what makes life in and around the kitchen work in harmony.
CONSHOHOCKEN, PA (PRWEB) July 22, 2015
IKEA announced today that the new 2016 IKEA U.S. catalog, filled with new product offerings, home furnishing inspiration and smart solutions for every area of the home, will be available to the public starting this August. Themed “The Little Things That Matter,” this year’s catalog focuses on life in and around the kitchen and celebrates how food – and all the activity around it – brings people together. Readers can explore more than 300 pages for tips and ideas for everything from sharing breakfast-in-bed to preparing a big family dinner.
There is so much more to food than just food. The growing interest in food is more than just a trend, so to better understand global attitudes toward food, IKEA recently released its second annual Life at Home Report (http://lifeathome.ikea.com/food). The report takes a deeper look at how food connects people and is shaping people’s everyday life. Today, more and more people care about what they eat, how they eat it, where it comes from, and how they can minimize waste.
Within the catalog pages are many beautiful and affordable IKEA solutions for growing, cooking, serving and storing food, including IKEA kitchen systems, appliances, cookware, tableware and accessories geared to help make the most out of your food activities. These solutions allow people to focus on the tiny, magical moments that take place in and around the heart of the home.
“We know that for many people, simply being together to talk and share around the table is just as important as the food itself,” said Leontyne Green Sykes, Marketing Manager IKEA U.S. “This year, we’re showcasing how food connects people, and what makes life in and around the kitchen work in harmony.”
The 2016 IKEA Catalog will be available in 71 printed versions, 34 languages and distributed in 49 countries. IKEA is committed to sustainable practices, which is why the catalog is printed on 100 percent FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper.
