A real page-turner full of vivid images comes out today. No, it's not another sequel to "Fifty Shades of Grey," it's the IKEA 2013 catalog, which offers a number of ways to spice up your office environment and motivate employees by transitioning from beige to bright.

The beauty of IKEA is, of course, that it offers modern design pieces that are relatively affordable. With some vision, you can take the inspiration from higher-end, aesthetically striking offices -- like the minimalist space of Obscura Digital in San Francisco, which won the title of "World's Coolest Office" in a 2011 contest by Inc. and Architizer.com -- then adopt those out-of-the-box design choices on a small business budget.

In addition to the 211 million copies printed, the 2013 catalog also takes a step into the world of augmented reality. A simple wave of your smartphone over the pages offers extra content, like 3D models, videos and how-to guides, to help you better plan your office redesign.

Check out some of our favorite items from the 2013 catalog and the new PS 2012 collection -- in which IKEA designers revisit IKEA classics, including '60s- and '70s-influenced favorites of the past in eye-catching colors -- in the slideshow below. Still not inspired? We've also included some hacked IKEA furniture that show you the possibilities extend far beyond the catalog's 328 pages.

We refined the design and developed a modern, scaled down version. The old upholstery and other unnecessary material disappeared, but we kept the original metal frame. The best things became more prominent and the decision to use only one material had many advantages. Suddenly, IKEA PS 2012 easy chair could be used both indoors and outdoors and is much easier to recycle." -<a href="http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_GB/rooms_ideas/ps2012/index.html#" target="_hplink">Wiebke Braasch, IKEA PS 2012</a>

With LED technology, light diodes can be built into the shade itself, which reflects the light and makes it less harsh. It gives an even better light to read, eat and work in, quite simply. There are many advantages with LED. For instance, did you know that LED bulbs use up to 85% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and have a lifetime of up to 20,000 hours?" -<a href="http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_GB/rooms_ideas/ps2012/index.html" target="_hplink">Henrik Pruetz, IKEA PS 2012</a>

There's a big need for smart lighting solutions and LED technology makes it possible. LED consists of small light diodes that are built into the lamp itself, so lamps can be made smaller and slimmer. LED is what makes it possible to fold IKEA PS 2012 wall lamp flat against the wall when you're not using it. It's also why it fits in every room, anywhere you need good light. And LEDs are more energy efficient than ordinary light bulbs, too." -<a href="http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_GB/rooms_ideas/ps2012/index.html" target="_hplink">Johanna Jelinek, IKEA PS 2012</a>

The inspiration for IKEA PS 2012 sofa came instead from old tubular steel sofas that are light and airy. At the same time, design is more and more concerned with the environment. Many sofas today contain materials that cannot be recycled. That's why we tested different solutions and chose pocket springs. Pocket springs are used in mattresses and are pockets with small springs in them. Metal springs aren't just easier to recycle, lots of springs also means a lot of comfort." -<a href="http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_GB/rooms_ideas/ps2012/index.html#" target="_hplink">Nike Karlsson, IKEA PS 2012</a>

We tried to do the complete opposite. That's why IKEA PS 2012 TV bench for modern high technology was inspired by old furniture with drapery. We gave the doors a wavy look and you can even choose doors in bright yellow. A TV bench like this one really makes traditional media storage feel pale and colourless. But what about the technology? Well, it works very smoothly - for example, there's a hole in the back for leading cables into the cabinet." -<a href="http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_GB/rooms_ideas/ps2012/index.html" target="_hplink">Anna Wallin Irinarchos and Lisa Widén, IKEA PS 2012</a>

It started with a visit to a rug fair, where I spoke with different producers. Thanks to those contacts, I was able to adapt my design early to the factory's capabilities, which saved both time and work. I love bright colours and dots and that became the foundation for my design. On one of the rugs the dots are cut out and on the other rug the dots are in raised relief, so the pile itself becomes a decorative element in the design." -<a href="http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_GB/rooms_ideas/ps2012/index.html" target="_hplink">Maria Vinka, IKEA PS 2012</a>
