We can all agree that IKEA is the best place to go when you want to get a cheap, reliable, and practical piece of furniture. It doesn’t matter if you are looking to get a simple chair or furnish your entire house; the chances are that the Swedish company will have the things you need.

While affordable prices are one of IKEA’s main calling card, the brand also owns its popularity to innovative designs that proved to be trendsetters and shaped the way we look at interior decoration. Inspired by IKEA’s iconic legacy and contribution to modern living, British company Household Quotes decided to dive into their collection of home catalogs and check out how IKEA furniture changed over the years.

Using the pieces from the catalogs, they managed to put together digital renders of entire living rooms with IKEA furniture for each era. Their renders are fascinating as they show not only the company’s evolution through the years but also the evolution of the furniture styles. In the 1950s, it was all about big armchairs and cozy sofas, while sleek design and minimalism dominates the 2020s.
