This'll liven up your February.
It's only February, but IKEA has blessed us with a slew of new kitchen gear—all of it bright (necessary for getting through this last stretch of winter), and much of it under $10. This comes on the heels of yesterday's news that the Swedish home goods giant is offering to lease its furniture via “scalable subscription services,” quickly dubbed in the press as the “Netflix of furniture.” “When that leasing period is over, you hand it back and you might lease something else,” Ikea CEO Torbjorn Loof told the Financial Times. “And instead of throwing those away, we refurbish them a little and we could sell them, prolonging the lifecycle of the products.” So, who knows, maybe in a few months' time you could be arranging your new, daisy-patterned Ikea glasses in a cabinet on loan from the same company. See those daisy glasses—which are really cute, by the way—and more kitchen picks from Ikea's February lineup, below.
