What started as a small post order business, operated by a teenager on a bike, has certainly grown over the past 75 years. To celebrate its 75th anniversary, IKEA has launched a series of furniture incorporating relaunched pieces from the 1950s to the 2000s. Named the Gratulera series, it will include three different collections that re-introduce some of the Swedish giant’s most popular and iconic products from the past 75 years in three collections that focus on the 50-60s, 70-80s and lastly, the 90s.
Each launch is different from the other, signifying its time period; from dark woods with a classic expression, to a very playful style with strong colors and then to a more natural look with natural Scandinavian woods and graphic colors.
The collection will include armchairs, side tables, lighting and textiles in different variations. The EKENÄSET armchair, the FÄRGSTARK rug and BJURÅN chair are a few of the icon products that have been brought back with several other products updated with new names, colors, materials and functions.
