Blast from the past
In 2010, 197 million copies of the IKEA catalog were printed world wide (that´s more than 3 times as much as the bible). The catalog now comes in twenty languages. Of course, this wasn´t always the case! The first IKEA catalog was published (only in Swedish) in 1951. Since then, the (success of the) IKEA brand and its catalog has evolved quite a bit – and trends along with them! These fantastic excerpts from the 1973 IKEA Catalog was spotted in a swedish blog called Retro! – I find them really fascinating and cool – Do you think we´ll see these trends at our local IKEA´s any time soon?
