While the focus of the Ikea press event we attended last week was on all their affordable products for organizing your home, the highlight was getting an advance copy of the 2011 catalog into our hot little hands. Most notable in the kids' section is the introduction of a whole new line of kids storage furniture called Stuva. (We'll be posting later today on something else that more than caught our eye. Two words: PLAY FOOD!...stay tuned.)
Like many of Ikea's furniture lines, Stuva is totally modular to give you the freedom to create the combination of pieces and colors that work for you and your child. Wardrobe, dresser, cabinet, shelves, and, our favorite, a storage bench are all sized for children and ready to become storage and organization workhorses in your kids' rooms. Stuva is available in white, pink, green, blue and birch.
The Stuva line is not yet on the U.S. website, but you can find it on many of their international sites (English speakers may want to use the UK site where you can see Stuva here
). We're not sure if Stuva has debuted in U.S. Ikea showrooms yet (have you seen it?), but if not it's coming soon to your local Ikea.
Ikea's annual catalog typically hits customers' homes in early August so keep an eye out (you'll know by your mail carrier's hunched back.)
