My 2007 IKEA catalog came in the mail this week, and I really love a lot of the new things they have going on. Particularily the opening paragraph, which asks "What's happening in your life?" and continues on with ideas on how to "reclaim your own way of living..." I realize this is really just clever marketing copy, but it is a nice reminder that your home is your nest, and your entire house should be your "living room." Anyways- many of the new items feature little thoughtful details, such as this Trofé mug that has a small notch cut out of the bottom, so that when its in the dishwasher or while drying upside down, the excess water has a way to escape. For 50¢ each, this is an extremely affordable example of good design. (They are stackable too!) If you haven't received your catalog, you can browse online here.
