Tidying up becomes fun as Ikea and Lego bring us Bygglek, storage boxes that with Lego stud-covered lids kids can adapt with their own creations.

The range of one set of three small boxes, two sets of larger boxes and one set of Lego bricks features in the 70th edition of the Swedish homeware firm's catalogue.

Created as a "handbook for better everyday life at home" the 2021 version takes account of working from home and a need for limited budget options, after carrying out independent research of more than 5,000 people, including those in the UAE.

This year’s catalogue comes in both a print version as well as a digital version.

Other new ranges for next year are SYMFONISK, which integrates technology with home furnishing products and solutions and SAMMANKOPPLA, a collection by Thai clothing brand Greyhound Original that's influenced by Asia and focuses on small space living solutions.

Another new addition that we're excited about - no trip to Ikea is complete without a plate of meatballs and the much-loved Ikea canteen will soon be serving up vegan plant balls.

A single plant ball has just four per cent of the climate footprint of the usual meatball and unlike the current veggie meatballs, we're told they'll look and taste like the famous meatballs.

The plant-based balls will be launched in the UAE in November 2020, at he IKEA stores in Dubai Festival City, Festival Plaza in Jebel Ali and Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
