This wonderful mid century modern bar in teak was designed by Arne Wahl Iversen for IKEA in the 1960s.
Although it’s rare to find pristine examples of well crafted IKEA pieces from the 1950s and 1960s, they do pop up once in a while, and are found mostly in Sweden, where the company did most of their business.
This piece still retains its original key, intact with the company’s logo.
A large teak door drops open to expose a black laminate serving surface and a black-glass-and-mirror-lined interior.
A small glass shelf offers storage for barware.
A light turns on when the door opens and is hidden behind a teak peg board rail.
Two lower cabinet doors unlock to reveal two bays with adjustable shelving.
