In 2014, furnishing retailers have been riding the wake of the Mad Men design craze, banking on the new-found love for everything low-slung and midcentury. Older companies like Ikea, Fritz Hansen, and Dansk have even taken to remanufacturing pieces they sold in the '50s and '60s. Here now, a look at 10 popular reintroductions, including chairs, tables, and kitchenware.
↑ Ikea's ÅRGÅNG collection features favorites from the company's back catalog. This came more than a year after announcing plans to bring back the 1950s table that "began the flatpack revolution." It's all part of the brand's celebration of 70 years in business, a branding party that also included showcasing Ikea's vintage showrooms. The limited-edition, 26-piece ÅRGÅNG collection, which includes furniture, lighting, textiles, and tableware, will revive what Ikea calls "faithful old servants," like the butterfly chair and pendant lamp seen in the snippet of a 1956 IKEA catalog, and a few of the pristine, Nordic designs that came to define quintessential midcentury modern furnishings.
