Score Rare IKEA Furniture at Upcoming Archive Sale of Vintage Homeware

The one-off shopping event will feature over 100 pieces by the homegoods giant.

Known for its affordable, no-frills furniture, IKEA was once considered too cutting-edge for mainstream appeal. Now highly sought after, the retailer’s past collaborations with designers including Verner Panton and Niels Gammelgaard were quickly pulled from shelves after performing poorly among a mass audience. These vintage pieces — which were, at the time of their launch, too experimental for most tastes — will reenter the spotlight in an upcoming archive sale of over 100 discontinued IKEA products.

Launched by BILLY, a vintage IKEA platform started five years ago by artist and collector Harry Stayt, the one-off sale (aptly named after IKEA’s best-selling Billy Bookcase) will span 50 years of IKEA designs. Focusing on the late ’80s and early ’90s, the curated collection of furniture will spotlight some of IKEA’s boldest designs including Panton’s VILBERT chair, Gammelgaard’s TED NET chair and Harry Allen’s KILA lamp. Also set for inclusion are more contemporary collaborations including those with fashion giants Walter Van Beirendonck and Virgil Abloh.

BILLY’s IKEA archive sale launches on November 26 at the BILLY.forsale website. In the meantime, head to the BILLY Instagram for vintage IKEA content as well as a special giveaway.
