Normally, if you want to score vintage IKEA, you have to do some serious hunting on Etsy or 1stDibs. (Trust us; we once spent hours looking for discontinued lighting.) Not this time. In celebration of IKEA’s 80th anniversary, the company recently debuted its much-anticipated Nytillverkad collection, a vibrant reimagining of furnishings from the brand’s archive. The first wave spanned 24 items and hit shelves on July 1. But shoppers can expect more archive-inspired launches to follow over the next few years—read on for a sneak peek of what’s to come this fall, plus six of our favorite Nytillverkad finds you can shop right now.
What’s Coming This Fall
In October, IKEA will be bringing back patterns and products by designers like Niels Gammelgaard, Bent Gantzel-Boysen, and Inez Svensson, with a focus on the colorful and radical works they made in the late 1970s and early ’80s. The fresh assortment consists of 11 items and stars the Järpen easy chair (now called Skalboda), which was Gammelgaard’s affordable take on tubular furniture in the 1980s and marked IKEA’s foray into steel wire furniture. The revival piece, which has only been brought back once before, will be available in orange and black—fitting for Halloween and beyond.
Other finds we’ll be eyeing? The Havsfjäder pendant lampshade, originally created by Gantzel-Boysen in 1979. (Psst: You can add your own custom touch to it by pairing it with any cord of your choosing.) We’re also excited for the return of an O.G. bar cart, although it’s technically called the Järlasa side table. The hardworking piece is foldable and can hold up to 220 pounds worth of booze (or books!).
What’s Out Now
The Lövbacken Table
This three-legged side table debuted back in 1956, but it has been one of the company’s favorite products to riff on in the 21st century. The sleek surface was reintroduced in 2013 and 2021, though this iteration is the first time you can get it in bright colors, including orange, blue, and light green.
The Bladhult Pattern
When Swedish textile designer Sven Fristedt initially made this floral print in 1980, it was simply for a cover for IKEA’s Klippan sofa. Now you can carry the look throughout your home: It will be available in bedding, precut fabric, kitchen accessories, and cushion covers. If you prefer something more streamlined, the line will also include a diagonal print by Fristedt in candy pink, sky blue, and banana yellow.
The Domsten Stool
Simplicity and stackability is the name of the game for this stool, originally designed by Karin Mobring appearing under the name Jerry in the 1973 catalog. While the smooth pine top remains consistent this go-round, the metal legs have been coated in the same punchy pastel hues that are driving the 80th anniversary relaunch.
The Bondskäret Coatrack
The motto “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” applies to this entryway staple: Its tubular, treelike shape allows you to load it up with jackets and totes. The piece, created by Rutger Andersson in 1978, now comes in lilac and yellow in addition to classic black.
The Kulturskog Plant Stand
The Tuvkornell Candleholders
Better yet, display a collection of these candleholders on the aforementioned plant stand. When guests inevitably ask you about them, you can say they’re the work of sibling designer duo Knut and Marianne Hagberg; were first made available in 1980; and, no, you did not have to spend hours on the Internet looking for them.
