Vintage IKEA catalogues

Vintage IKEA catalogues are always fun to look at for some inspiration! Their furniture from the 60's and the 70's have become highly collectable, and when I spot a vintage chair at an auction, it's nice to be able to find it in the original catalogue, and see how much it costed back then!

The two "Impala" sofas below were designed by Gillis Lundren for IKEA in 1972. They became quickly bestsellers, but were discontinued by the next year because of the high production cost. In 2010, they sold for 7200SEK (about 1000$) at Bukowskis Market. The estimation was 4000SEK (less than 600$).
Take care of your vintage furniture pieces, you never know how much it could worth in a few years!
