1. Ekenaset armchair
If this midcentury modern stunner looks familiar, you can congratulate yourself on having an incredible eye for design—not to mention a brilliant memory. Originally released back in 1957, the Ekenaset is returning to the IKEA lineup as part of a limited edition collection of classics to celebrate the iconic brand’s 75th anniversary. It’s pretty easy to see why this Danish-inspired design was selected for a 21st century revival, too: Between the solid beech frame and luxe velvet upholstery, it really is a room-defining piece of furniture that belies its paltry price tag. Consider yourself warned, however: as a limited edition release, it’ll be snapped up faster than you can say “lingenberry.”
