Ready for a chance to let your mind run away with ideas? The 2013 IKEA Catalog
comes out the week of July 30, with 324 pages of products, tips and inspiration for
a better everyday life at home. From modular sofas to LED lamps, there are tons of
new products out of our full product range found online and in stores.
This year, we’re giving more attention and celebration to textiles and their
importance at home. An easy and affordable way to bring new life to a room,
textiles make a big difference without creating a big dent in your budget.
Since we believe it can fit into any space, there’s focus on creativity. To top things
off, we’ve created more films and interactive features that bring the
catalog to life and keep the inspiration coming!
Until you can touch, fold, rip, keep and love the 2013 IKEA Catalog, grab a pen
or your smartphone to take notes or pictures and get ready to be inspired! On the
following pages, there are preview images, behind-the-scenes info, background
about how we strive to meet sustainability goals in catalog production and, as
always, free home furnishing ideas.
Welcome to the 2013 IKEA Catalog preview! A better everyday life at home awaits.

It’s never been hard to find inspiration in the IKEA catalog, but this year it’s even easier.
We’ve taken our insights about everyday life and used them to make changes in the
catalog to room settings, product displays, styles and more.
For instance, we’ve stopped dividing life at home into rooms. Bedrooms, for example
– they’re as varied as the ways people sleep. We’ve taken away our notions of what
defined a ‘bedroom’ and replaced them with the idea ‘sleeping.’ We know that some
homes don’t have ‘bedrooms’ – they have one 24-hour room where people live and
sleep. Life is about activities; not the walls that define where they unfold.
And now, when we’re showing a selection of products, we’ve changed things up so it’s
easier to compare products. There’s a better overview of the sizes, designs, styles,
colors and materials of what we have – but not all we have since the web and the store
show all IKEA products.

Express yourself. Find your style at the
Speaking of styles, we’ve dedicated several pages of the catalog to show our range
of styles side by side. Whether you like traditional, modern, simple, bold, a little bit
more Scandinavian or a little bit less, with styles grouped and shown together, it’s
easier to find looks and products that speak to you.
Plus, throughout the catalog, look for the smartphone symbol. It leads to additions and
extended material that enhance the catalog experience with more ideas and inspiration.
Once you’ve found what you’re looking for (and maybe what you didn’t realize you
needed), we’ve made it easier to find more information on IKEA-USA.com, where you’ll
find even more tips, ideas and inspiration.
All these changes make it easier to be inspired by what you see in the catalog and bring
new life to your home!

Whether we stop to think about it or
not, life would be rather cold and lonely
without textiles. That’s why this year
at IKEA and in the 2013 IKEA Catalog,
we’re celebrating textiles for making life
soft, snuggly, lively and personal.
From blankets and rugs to curtains and
towels, textiles are an easy, affordable,
attractive and quick way to bring new
life to your home. Refresh a sofa with
cushions or throws. Switch out curtains
instead of repainting a room. Change
doesn’t have to be big and difficult.
It can be as small and simple as
changing the sheets.

The 2013 IKEA Catalog goes well with
paint, scissors, glue, needle, thread and
an open mind. That’s because, this year,
we hope our ideas spark even more
inspiration for people to express them-
selves and their creativity at home.

With this year’s catalog, we want to give you more. That’s why we’ve added
inspiring films and interactive features to delight, entertain and offer even more ideas
and insights for a better life at home. We love having a printed catalog that can be a
part of everyone’s homes all year long, but with today’s technology you get more:
• films with how to’s and behind-the-scenes clips
• image galleries with additional photos
• stories from product designers
• 3D and interactive views
To access the bonus material, you can download the app to smartphones/tablets or
see everything at IKEA-USA.com. If you’re using a smartphone or tablet, look for the
phone symbol throughout the catalog (as seen below) and scan the whole page.

BEHIND THE SCENES
Work on this year’s IKEA catalog began in September 2011 at IKEA Communications
(ICOM) in Älmhult, Sweden. Catalog production takes the teamwork and skill of
many employees from art directors to project leaders and carpenters. There will be
211 million copies of the 2013 catalog, at about 324 pages each. Distributed in
43 countries, the catalog will have 62 different versions.
Follow an IKEA crew on location as they film a photo shoot for the 2013
IKEA Catalog. Watch the film at IKEA-USA.com
Here’s what a typical day of working on the catalog looks like for an
8:00 Let’s start at the catalog wall, which shows each of its 324 pages and
where we are in the process with text and photos.
9:00 Check in with the 3D team, who create digital images using advanced
technology to make the impossible possible
10:00 While we’re on the same floor, let’s look closely at some of the catalog’s
photos to see if anything needs to be touched up.
11:00 Brainstorm with an interior designer. ICOM’s 33 interior designers come
from 13 countries and use insight from home visits and magazines
12:00 Lunch! Meatballs, a salad or Thai takeaway?
1:00 It’s time to walk through the 8,800-square-foot studio to catch up with the
different product and room photos.
2:00 Meeting with a project leader. Most work days have these, don’t they?
2:45 Fika! Most of ICOM’s 285 employees take a coffee break in the cafe
(usually with something sweet to eat, too.)
3:15 Studio time again. This time we need a new vase that’s missing from a
room setting. Let’s look in the studio’s ‘mini store.’
4:00 Still in the studio. One room needs a prop. Will it be food? Plants?
An old camera? A snowman?
5:00 It’s time to go home, relax and rest for tomorrow. There’s still more to do!

The IKEA catalog is something we know people keep at home – on
bookshelves, coffee tables and desks all year long. To make the 2013 IKEA
Catalog even more enjoyable, we’ve improved the paper quality and
increased the width. Still, with 50 paper and print suppliers in more than
19 countries, there were many complex challenges to address.
All paper fiber used in the 2013 IKEA Catalog is traceable back to the forests and will
be audited according to criteria set by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). As we
transition to a new format and paper type, we will set clear goals for ourselves and
our suppliers to further improve the sustainability elements of future IKEA catalogs,
including water use, paper sources and carbon emissions.

impact? Please read the IKEA Sustainability Report on IKEA-USA.com
