We anticipate the new Ikea catalog much the same way children used to wait at their mailboxes for the new Harry Potter. And why wouldn’t we? It’s basically going to tell us what our homes will look like for the next year, amiright? We got a sneak peek of this forthcoming wonder, and selected the 11 items you’ll have to race us to the checkout line for. (Including a mini kitchen, you guys). Products will be available in stores starting this August!
Here, the GLADOM tray table, $29.99
