IKEA has been around for over 30 years, and in that time we have enjoyed walking through the perfectly decorated showrooms, enjoyed the affordable furniture and dug into some delicious Swedish meatballs.
Since the doors of the iconic blue and yellow building opened in 1985, honestly not much has changed. Sure, decor trends have been updated over the last three decades, but some classic pieces have remained the same.
After all, why mess with a good thing?
These throwback photos of classic IKEA pieces from 1985 will make you remember a simpler time when there wasn’t online shopping and apps to tell you where things were located, and you just browsed the rooms and picked up new pieces for your home when you needed them.
And no, you don’t have to get your eyes checked, some of the pieces are actually more affordable today than when you saw them 30 years ago!
