Work is Fun: Ikea

Okay, we’re going to try to be better about posting pictures when we’re out and about on the job. We worked our tooshes off over the summer, but I’m just now getting around to posting for you. See, it’s vacation time for everyone else, but we’re gearing up for the holidays in the magazine world, running around looking at all the new stuff everyone will be bringing out come fall and winter. (-Moe)

So: Here we are at the Ikea 2010 Catalogue preview!


They had a ton of cute – and always affordable – new products that are in stores now, like these new stripey chair covers that we both loved.

And these great, bold fabric patterns:


Cool, huh? A lot of black & white, a lot of grey, and a lot of green. You can see all of the new stuff on their website – have fun browsing!

      Hi Amanda! The giant canvas is actually just a display tool to show of Ikea’s fab new fabrics. But it’s a super-easy project. Decide on the size of your ideal canvas, and head to your local art supply store–many will customize a canvas for you at a low cost. Then, snag up the correct amount of yardage, grab a staple gun and voila–your own emasculating artwork! 🙂
