The IKEA 2014 Trend Report

Oh that IKEA. Always on the cutting edge of trends. Seriously though — these trends are, in fact, pretty trendy. Using space efficiently? Those that stayed in a less than ideal home during the recession know the necessity of this. Incorporating plants? If the number of terrarium and indoor gardening tutorials on Pinterest is any indication, this also is a yes. And as always, IKEA is invested in sustainability. Living sustainably: finally, a trend that (unlike chevron) will never go out of style!
