8 Things Families Will Love From The New IKEA Catalogue
The 70th IKEA catalogue just came out, and it’s geared towards making our homes cosier than ever this year, as we continue to hunker down and wait for the pandemic to run its course.The big themes this year include work-from-home solutions, nesting and planet-friendly materials ― because even though we’ve all got COVID-19 top of mind, climate change isn’t going anywhere. We’ve scoured the IKEA 2021 catalogue for some of the most practical, beautiful and well-designed items in store this year for families. These are a few of our favourite things:1. GUNRID air-purifying curtains, (also available in light grey), $39.99 With all the at-home time we’ve been, um, enjoying lately, it’s good to discover you can actually clean the air in your living space with the right pair of drapes. Here’s how it works, according to the IKEA website:“GUNRID has a mineral-based surface treatment. When the ultraviolet light in daylight hits the fabric, the minerals capture the air pollutants and break them down into carbon dioxide and tiny water molecules.”A great big elbow bump to germophobes everywhere ― this one’s for you!  2. MISTERHULT bamboo table lamp, $39.99Bamboo is already a sustainable material, and this lamp uses parts of the fast-growing plant that would otherwise be discarded, so it’s extra eco-friendly.We love the soft glow and the cozy stay-home vibes this lightweight and relatively low-cost lighting brings to a room.  3. PILLEMARK Indoor rainbow doormat, $14.99The rainbow has become a symbol of hope during the pandemic, and having one right inside the doorway is a joyful way to brighten up your life, when the outside world sometimes feels a little scary.Good news for our weary planet: This doormat is made from hard-wearing and sustainable coir, a natural fibre extracted from the outer shell of coconuts.  4. LATTSALD penguin vase/carafe, set of two, $9.99Do you need two new penguin vases? Not really. Will they make your life a little more fun right now? One-hundred-per cent yes!This parent-and-kid set is a cute and relatively inexpensive splurge. Having them around will give you a happiness boost and maybe even prompt you to treat yourself to flowers, if we remain stuck indoors this winter. 5. PLUTT hooks, set of three, $0.99This self-adhesive trio is not new to this year’s catalogue, but it will definitely be put to a new use in homes, as the personalized place to hang one’s mask.(Seriously, how many times have you run out the door only to have to run back in and scramble around to find a face covering?)You can use an erasable coloured pencil (IKEA’s MALA) to customize these hooks with names or drawings. Their adhesive qualities even work in humid places like the bathroom.  6. PJATTERYD picture, Solar System, $39.99Been fantasizing about finding a new planet for 2021?Same!This 100cm x 70cm print will delight your kids and fuel your fantasies.  7. JATTELIK dinosaur cushion, $29.99if your kid likes to read (or distance learn) from the comfort of their bed, you might want to make sure they have decent lumbar and neck support.This colourful dino cushion is made with recycled polyester, and is bolster-shaped and nice and firm, for comfort.  8. VINDEROD rug, $199This colourful rug is handwoven and made of wool, so super cosy for playtime or story time on the living room floor. Since the pattern is as vibrant on both sides, the floor covering can be flipped over to maximize wear and reduce the frequency of cleanings.Designed by rug weaver Nashaud Ali, the pattern draws on Rangoli, an Indian art form, and was inspired by a brightly coloured tile pattern on an actual house wall. The rugs are made at organized weaving centres in India and Bangladesh, where the craftspeople receive fair wages.   Time to get cosy ... who knows when the Second Wave is coming.  RELATED STORIES 10 Reasons Every Parent Needs One Of These In Their Lives Organizing Hacks For Parents Tired Of Drowning In Their Kids' Stuff Home Decor That Works Double Duty For You And Your Kids WATCH: IKEA meatballs ... minus the meat

Liberals Turn To Private Firms To Design Options For Gun Buyback Program
OTTAWA — The federal government is turning to the private sector to design and possibly help run a massive buyback of newly prohibited firearms.Public Safety Canada has invited 15 consulting firms to come up with a “range of options and approaches” for the planned program to compensate gun owners.The Liberals outlawed a wide range of firearms in early May, saying the guns were designed for the battlefield, not hunting or sport shooting.The ban covers some 1,500 models and variants of what the government considers assault-style weapons, meaning they can no longer be legally used, sold or imported.In announcing the ban, the government proposed a program that would allow current owners to receive compensation for turning in the designated firearms or keep them through an exemption process yet to be worked out.Sport shooters, firearm rights advocates and some Conservative MPs have questioned the value of the measures in fighting crime.The group PolySeSouvient, a leading proponent of stricter gun control, has argued that allowing owners of recently banned firearms to keep them would make it easier for a different government to simply reverse the ban in future.Mary-Liz Power, a spokeswoman for Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, said in mid-May the coming buyback program would be “fair and effective” but she did not provide details.Blair’s office had no immediate comment Wednesday on why it was looking outside the government for someone to design the program.A spokeswoman for Public Safety Canada said the options that emerge from the selected contractor “may be incorporated into a final program. Costs will be available once a provider is selected.”RELATED What You Need To Know About Canada’s New Assault Weapons Ban Gun Sales Spike In Canada Amid Fears Of COVID-19, New Restrictions Link Between Domestic Abuse And Mass Murder Needs To Be Recognized: Experts The first phase of the newly posted federal tender would require the successful bidder to consult with other federal agencies, possibly other levels of government and industry experts to devise options that include:— a compensation plan for each affected firearm;— analysis of benefits and risks associated with each compensation model; and— identification of “other considerations” that might affect the feasibility of each approach.The first phase of the work is expected to be complete by the end of March. The second phase of the contract could involve implementing the chosen options.The invited bidders include well-known firms such as Deloitte, IBM Canada, KPMG and Pricewaterhouse Coopers, though the department has not ruled out other possible parties.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Aug. 12, 2020.Also on HuffPost:
