The time has come for IKEA to present their new living room designs gathered up in the IKEA Catalog 2012 (you probably noticed our preview of the 2012 IKEA Catalog not too long ago). In case you are too lazy to check it out page by page, we decided to make a selection. In this post we put together 12 of the best living room ideas presented by the giant furniture manufacturer. Fresh and original, these interiors are full of color, personality and not to mention practical storage solutions. We couldn’t help noticing the typical IKEA storage boxes, now in a variety of shapes and colors. Book shelves, lamps, small tables, they all seem individualized through a witty design. We really like the strong color contrasts that can be seen in the images below and consider them to be a great approach for a cheerful contemporary living room. Enjoy the photos and tell us what you think of this bran-new IKEA living room “collection”.
