IKEA Canada announced that the new 2016 IKEA catalogue will be mailed out to consumers within IKEA store markets starting Monday, August 10th. Is it sad that that excites me? Admit it, I’m not alone. When that catalogue hits your doorstep your life is on pause while you flip through the pages and mentally bookmark your next shopping trip wishlist.
Themed “The Little Things that Matter,” the new catalogue celebrates life in and around the kitchen and all the moments in-between, with a strong focus on growing, cooking, serving and storing food.
But, there is a lot more than just food, although that is a common thread throughout.
“It is about being healthy, being together and creating everyday routines. The growing interest in food is more than just a trend, so to better understand global attitudes toward food, IKEA recently released its second annual Life at Home Report. The Report takes a deeper look into people’s everyday thoughts and habits in and around their kitchens and how those moments around food affect their well-being. Today, more and more people care about what they eat, how they eat it, where it comes from, and how they can minimize waste.”
In addition to the printed catalogue, the IKEA catalogue app is available with new inspiration and products. Consumers can see how more than 400 products fit in their home and even take a tour in two IKEA Showroom settings with the new “Walk in the Room” feature. The app also offers more than 50 films, image galleries and 360-degree views. IKEA Canada also recently launched a new version of their mobile shopping app, IKEA Store, which allows customers to access IKEA’s full product range, check product information and stock availability, as well as create shopping lists.
