It feels like summer in parts of the country today. (It's 74 where I am in New York City!) And although it's going to be cold again tomorrow, now we're super excited for warm weather. Also adding to that excitement? We got our hands on a preview of IKEA's 2018 summer collection. Take a look and then join us in counting down the days until the end of winter.
1. SOMMAR 2018 Tablecloth, $25
It's hard to tell here, but this tablecloth is gray with white brush strokes. IKEA calls this scene "the best hotel breakfast, at home" and the retailer isn't wrong. We love that this tablecloth can look casual for a morning brunch outside or even get dressed up for something nicer, should you be feeling fancy.
2. SOMMAR 2018 Mug and Bowls, from $3
Can we just talk about these dishes? They look like something you'd get from a small boutique at quadruple the price. If you're not into the dark dipping, these are also available in pink.
3. SOMMAR 2018 Dish Towels, $5 for two
These dish towels are so pretty (and inexpensive) you can use them as oversized napkins, or to at least make dish duty more fun when it's 80 degrees and still sunny at 8 at night and you'd rather be outside than in front of the sink. There's also a matching tablecloth (above), runner, and apron.
4. SOMMAR 2018 Lantern, $25
The catalog makes sure to mention that you should never leave a candle burning while unattended. As if anyone would leave a cozy spot with this nearby!
5. SOMMAR 2018 Picnic Basket, $15
Even if you're not headed to the beach, this giant, sturdy picnic basket will be able to get all your snacks to your destination.
