IKEA Through the Years – This Is How Interior Design Has Developed From the 50s and on

IKEA was founded back in 1943 by Feodor Ingvar Kamprad when he was only 17. It is the largest furniture retailor since 2008, and we simply can’t imagine our lives without it. It is so nice to know that whenever you need something related to home decor you will find it all in one place. For decades now, IKEA is known for its modernist designs for various types of appliances and furniture. Its interior design work is often associated with an eco-friendly simplicity. In addition, the firm is known for its attention to cost control, and operational details. The continuous product development has allowed IKEA to lower its prices by an average of two to three percent.

Through time we can see how much the style has changed. Today all we want is to surround ourselves with as less as possible. You probably have noticed that all interior designs are based on earth tones, and the pure white dominates almost everywhere. This way we provide a clean and aesthetic environment to surround ourselves.

However, let’s just go back for a moment and see how everything used to be in the past.  Nordic Style Magazine has looked into IKEA and discovered a collection of old catalog covers, provided by Smörgås Pinners. This collection perfectly portrays how the idea of a perfect decor has developed! We collected some of its images and we invite you to scroll down below and check it out.
