IKEA is one of my favorite places in this world. Everything is colorful and beautiful, the prices are good, and HELLO,  Swedish meatballs. However, if you don’t feel quite so strongly about IKEA and would rather avoid a few extra trips to their labyrinthine stores, this new app may be just what you have been waiting for. It’s an augmented reality app that allows you to use your phone to picture IKEA’s furniture in your home. Instead of focusing on the width and length of your purchases, you can get a visual representation of how it will actually look. The furniture appears in 3D over your room so that you can see if the couch is too big or even if the color isn’t quite right. The future is here, people! Or, as IKEA would say, schmergenflergenblerg. [CNBC] [Image via IKEA]

Beware the angry beast! He crouches, ready to pound on bare ankles and dangly shoelaces. Just, you know, not when he’s busy wedged inside a Soap.com box, licking his bum. Warn your guests about Fluffy’s killer impulses with this goofy orange rug, which is perfect as a welcome mat. Seriously, he’s a totally vicious attack cat … even if the only thing he’s attacked lately is a houseplant. [$19, Urban Outfitters]

If you’re anything like me, you need a jolt to get you through the morning. Usually I favor caffeine but this mug with a hippo at the bottom will work, too. I can totally see myself sucking down a cup of joe and shrieking, “Oh my God, there’s a hippo in my coffee!” (There’s also an octopus mug if you favor deep sea beasts.) Try not to spill on yourself and enjoy. [$10.95, Neatoshop]
