We want to enable people to just relax, embrace simplicity, and enjoy their time at home
CONSHOHOCKEN, PA (PRWEB) July 25, 2016
IKEA announced today the 2017 IKEA U.S. catalog, filled with more than 300 pages of tips, ideas and new products for every area of the home, with a particular focus on life in and around the kitchen. Available to the U.S. public starting this August, this year’s catalog is themed “Goodbye expectations. Hello you!” and highlights IKEA home furnishing solutions that help people live a life free of traditional expectations.
The new catalog encourages consumers to create a comfortable and secure home according to their own families’ needs and wants. Whether it’s mix-and-matching chairs or serving a fancy dinner without silverware, it’s all about following one’s personal path.
“We want to start a conversation about the pressures we knowingly or unknowingly put on ourselves when it comes to life at home,” said Shideh Hashemi, Marketing Manager, IKEA U.S. “We want to enable people to just relax, embrace simplicity, and enjoy their time at home.”
To bring this to life, IKEA is releasing a short-form video, “Let’s Relax,” encouraging people to rediscover the simple joy of cooking, eating and being together. The official trailer is live on the IKEA USA YouTube channel, and the full video will be released on Aug. 1, 2016.
Because IKEA truly understands how people live at home, the new products and solutions throughout this year’s catalog have many talents. They are designed based on the needs and dreams of real people. From kitchen tables that double as workspaces to sofas that become beds by night, IKEA has developed home furnishings that are as flexible as people are.
U.S. consumers can access the new catalog in multiple ways:
- Digital Version (UPDATE: Available starting on Aug. 15, 2016) – Visit http://www.IKEA-USA.com/catalog to view the digital version of the catalog, where users can save their favorite products and create shopping lists.
