It’s that time of year again—the midsummer debut of IKEA’s 2018 catalog. Every iteration has a theme and the newest one is “Make room for life,” which highlights the furniture, storage solutions, and decor pieces that help people use their space efficiently. While there are plenty of new bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen options to choose from, the catalog’s big focus is the living room—you’ll see new sofa offerings for every type of living space, from deep, plush sectionals to seating with built-in shelves and storage.

“We are encouraging people to make space for their needs and dreams,” Shideh Hashemi, marketing manager at IKEA U.S., said in a press release. “As homes rapidly change to fit our lifestyles, we want to inspire and enable people to make room for the things they love in life.”

The catalog will be available in stores on August 2nd and online on August 7th. Here’s a sneak peek at our favorite products.


This might be the most luxe sofa that IKEA has ever created. With an extra deep seat, soft velvet material, and plenty of cushions, it’s perfect for lounging and napping. Choose from dark blue, dark gray, and orange colors.
