The 2015 Ikea Catalogue is Out Now

Introducing the 2015 IKEA Catalogue,
celebrating the bedroom and the bathroom. 

The bedroom and bathroom serve our everyday needs. This is where we get dressed and refresh in the morning and undress and recharge in the evening. What we do is similar; how we do it is different.

“Of course a good night’s sleep is a persons most basic need, but our bathrooms and bedrooms are the rooms where we wind down from the day, contemplate, relax and take care of ourselves” 
says Kristin Bengtsson, Country Marketing Manager for IKEA Australia. 

People want their homes to reflect who they are. The IKEA Catalogue aims to inspire IKEA customers to furnish and decorate in the way they wish to live, rather than following trends and conventions. 
It contains unexpected ideas of how to make your home more personal and explores new ideas for how living spaces can support our ever-changing lives. For the growing number of people living in smaller and shared spaces, multifunctional furniture and innovative storage solutions are key. When you can’t make your living space bigger – make it work better! 

To see the full range of new products, styles and inspirations for a better everyday life at home, visit your local IKEA store or 

The catalogue will be in store from the 1st September until then you can view it online here
