10 Favorites: Best of Ikea’s 2018 Collection

The 2018 Ikea catalog landed in our mailboxes not long ago, and after a committed thumb-through, this is what caught our eyes.

N.B. Stay tuned for a feature on Ypperlig, Ikea’s collaboration with Danish design firm Hay to be released later this fall.

Svalnäs is Ikea’s new modular wall-mounted storage system along the lines of Danish designer Poul Cadovius’s Royal Shelving System released in 1948. (See our High/Low comparison.) Ikea’s is made of bamboo and fiberboard and combinations range in price from $26 (for two Wall Uprights and the smallest Shelf) to $570 for a whole-wall configuration. The Svalnäs combination shown here is $105.
