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 last summer, the company 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 continue to be treated with more archive-inspired launches. For its fourth release this April, IKEA will add 10 more products in a variety of sizes and colorways to its Nytillverkad assortment. 

The latest iteration of the 80th anniversary collection pays homage to 1970s flower power with a bright palette and delivers a number of works by IKEA designers like Charlotte Rude and Hjördis Olsson-Une. Many of the botanical motifs were also inspired by Swedish textile design legend Göta Trägårdh, whose large sunflower patterns first showed up in IKEA catalogs in the early ’70s. Now the fabrics have relaunched under new names: Kransmalva and Sandeternell.

The star of the launch is easily the Önnestad chair (originally called the Gogo chair when it was released in 1972 and was in the range for more than 10 years). The piece still boasts the same tubular frame, but this time around it’s crafted from high-strength steel instead of standard steel, meaning IKEA can use way less metal during the manufacturing process. It also means the piece is super-lightweight, making it easier for the company to ship and for you to move around when you’re in the mood to rearrange your living room.

Other reimagined classics hitting shelves in April are the ring-shaped Dykarklocka pendant light from 1964, the Turbokastanj mirror from 1978 (there’s even a little ledge for placing decorations!), and the ever practical Garnanas coffee table on casters from 1968.
