NEW YORK—Ikea is launching new products in its Vardagen series of tabletop and housewares as well as a new limited-edition collection of art photography in April.

The Vardagen introductions include cookware, bakeware, dinnerware and glassware. The lidded cookware has a layer of aluminum sandwiched between a stainless-steel base and copper rivets on its handles. The bakeware encompasses traditional tins for making cakes, pies and loaves of bread and are recyclable. The tableware includes bowls in many sizes that can be used for serving or regular everyday soups and salads, while the glassware offers traditional shapes with an artisan feeling.

The limited-edition art photography will be available at Ikea U.S. stores starting the first week of April. The second annual collection in the Ikea Art Event series, art photography was created by Ikea with the intention of democratizing fine art and making it available to the many, the retailer said. Spanning from the highly abstract to the figurative, the collection reflects the rich and inspiring diversity in contemporary art photography worldwide.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
