Ikea Bringing Back Vintage Furniture from the '50s, '70s and '90s

This year marks Ikea’s 75th year in business, and to celebrate the company is dusting off old blueprints and reviving some designs from the past. The plan is to re-release selected pieces from three eras–the 1950s-’60s, ’70s-’80s and ’90s-’00s–and produce them in a limited quality in a line they’re calling Gratulera.

“Each launch is very different,” says Ikea Sweden Creative Leader Karin Gustavsson, “signifying its time period; from dark woods with a classic expression, to a very playful style with strong colors, and then to a more minimal look with natural light woods and graphic colors.” Thus far they’re only releasing teaser images of what will be on offer for each era:

The plan is to start rolling them out shortly, on a schedule: This month the 1950s pieces will appear, with the ’70s and ’90s designs coming out in October and December, respectively.
