There’s something about longer, brighter days that gets us dreaming of all the sunny-day escapades we could get up to this year, and Ikea’s summer collection is providing us with some serious inspiration. Whether you plan on beach trips, barbecues with friends, or just taking some time to relax, there’s something to catch your eye.
