Ikea, the low-cost Swedish retailer that has furnished millions of homes around the globe, moved into the world of fine art with the IKEA's museum's retrospective of its 50 years of livable design. From the first flat-pack table in the 1950s to the latest trendy home styles traces 50 years of history as seen through Ikea's eyes.
Showing off Ikea's original shapes from the 1960s, bombastic colours from the 1970s and 1980s, and what the company dubbed "democratic design" from the 1990s, the display tells a story that not even Ikea or its founder, billionaire Ingvar Kamprad, could tell. The walls of the museum are adorned with covers of Ikea's famous catalogues, dating back to the first in 1951.
Posters tell the story of Ikea's beginnings, with amusing pictures of the first customers trying to load the company's emblematic flat-pack packages into the back of their small 1950s Volvos. One room is dedicated to a second-hand market, where aficionados can buy old Ikea trappings or give away unwanted items in exchange for a coffee and a pastry.
Founded in 1943 by Kamprad when he was a teen, Ikea began developing its own furniture in the mid-1950s, popularising renowned Scandinavian design - sleek and functional - on an industrial scale and conquering first Europe and then North America before taking on the rest of the world.
The museum also displays some lesser known Ikea products, including a limited series of handmade reproductions of 18th century Swedish antiques, made in the 1990s - a series now in hot demand at auctions and which sometimes goes for as much as the real thing.
Museum is situated in the centre Älmhult.

Nature is my wellspring of inspiration. Light is important in a painting. Likewise, everything I paint has touched me in some way. A mood of nature, a ray of light somewhere that catches my attention. Colors, shades, plays of light and shadow. All this speaks to me.
I paint in acrylics. Periodically, inspiration flows and I can paint one painting after another as if it will never end, then it may take me a while before I pick up the brush again. Nevertheless, my thoughts are almost always in pictures and I file them away in my memory until it is time to paint again.
Welcome to my exhibition. Feel free to look around and I hope
you will then find something that interests you.
