Ok, all you inexpensive-flatpacked-Scandinavian-furniture fetishists, it's official—the 2011 Ikea catalog is now available for online browsing. Just click on that blue link to check it out. Also launching soon: Ikea's Facebook "What kind of furniture are you?" quiz, which will help you determine whether, at your core, you're a SULTAN mattress or a BILLY bookcase. We're hoping other Ikea items are also possible quiz results—because, well, we've always sort of thought of ourselves more as Swedish meatballs than anything else. [Ikea]
