IKEA Lovebacken: Own IKEA History (And A Table)

For the IKEA loyalists out there, the Lövbacken may be the coolest piece of furniture you can put a lamp on. This is the first three-legged, leaf-shaped table the company sold, dating all the way back to 1956 when it was called the Lövet. Back then designer Gillis Lundgren would sell these out of his trunk (where he definitely did not keep any dead bodies), and that need for portability is what led him to unscrew the legs and voila (not a Swedish word), the flat-pack furniture movement was born.
