Adult coloring books seem like they're everywhere right now—two made it onto Amazon’s list of most popular books of 2015 and we’ve featured some on RealSimple.com, too. You’ve probably even read about their meditative and relaxing qualities. So it was only a matter of time before IKEA joined in on the craze.

The furniture retailer recently debuted a collection of illustrations to get your coloring fix. They created these downloadable pages to help people unwind from post-holiday stress. Each illustration features furniture or home decor accessories that may look familiar to an IKEA regular: We spotted dopplegangers for the GAVIK table lamps, STRANDMON footstools, KALLAX shelving units, and the iconic POÄNG chair.

And the best news about these drawings? They’re completely free and you don’t have to leave your house to get your hands on them. You can download and print them here, and share your finished creations on social media with the hashtag #ColorWithIKEA. And while an IKEA spokesperson, Katy Lee, told us via email that there are no plans to create a book for purchase, the company could consider it in the future or release more pages based on customer feedback. Fingers crossed next year’s catalog will have a coloring component!
