More new IKEA is coming your way this month. The Swedish retailer’s summer collections include everything you’ll need for outdoor living, and will start popping up in US stores in March.

It may still be chilly in your neck of the woods, but it’s starting to look like summer at IKEA, and the new collections are perfect for outdoor adventures and entertaining. SOMMAR 2017 includes brightly colored textiles that’ll punch up your table inside or out, boldly patterned trays (you can never have too many trays), and tableware in pretty pastels that will add some much-appreciated texture.

We’re most excited about SOLVINDEN, IKEA’s new collection of LED outdoor lighting. Best of all, most of the items are also solar powered (except for the string lights). They come in a variety of styles, from boldly patterned hanging lanterns, to rock-shaped floor lights, to pathway lanterns on ground spikes, to an adorable table lamp that looks like it belongs in a boudoir. Now you can keep that outdoor space lit in style, no batteries or bulb changing required.

There’s also some new lightweight furniture; the HÅMÖ line includes a beach chair, folding chair, and chaise that’ll make it easy to set up a party wherever you may be. Also be on the look out for the RISÖ hammock (and GÅRÖ stand) so you can get your relaxing on just about anywhere.

IKEA has some more rattan coming your way. The MASTHOLMEN collection isn’t even on the site yet, but you can get a peek at it in the lifestyle images above. The 100% renewable material comes in a side table ($35), coffee table ($60), armchair ($100), and loveseat ($140). JASSA, the retailer’s limited edition collection that’s also launching this month, has a ton of rattan pieces, too.

Check out some of our favorite products from the summer collection above, and keep your eyes peeled for them to start popping up in local stores this month.
