Ikea Design History Adorns Argang Collection

As part of its 70th anniversary celebration, Ikea has launched a 26-piece product collection dubbed Argang based on designs that made their way into the retailer’s catalog and stores from the 1950s through ’70s. The collection includes furniture and lighting as well as home textiles and housewares.

In part, Ikea noted, the company wanted to leverage its history and build off the retro design trends that are prominent in the furnishings market today.

In the furniture assortment, products include an update of the butterfly chair dubbed the Klappa easy chair, retailing for $29.99.
