IKEA 2010: New for the Kitchen

We are gearing up for our annual trip to IKEA and so we were excited to see this sneak preview of their new spring and summer releases, due out in February. Here’s a peek at a few new things for the kitchen.

There’s nothing terribly groundbreaking here — just gentle updates of old favorites. The new kitchen tools are especially unexciting — new whisk? New pancake turner? Oh yippee.

But we do like the striped and polka-dot trend in their new linens and we think we will almost certainly be picking up a few new towels in those patterns. And that origami tea cozy? Love!

We also love that LEENDE glass carafe; it’s an inexpensive basic that will probably become a classic. (It’s priced at $7.99.)

And finally, we also like their brightly-colored and stylishly-designed cleaning basics. A red broom may be just the thing our kitchen floor needs.

Have you found any good basics at IKEA lately?
