A shelf entered the IKEA store years ago. Today 50 years later the IVAR storage system is more popular than ever. Store anything from books to trinkets and photographs with durable and stylish shelving units. Over the years, we’ve seen IVAR chests of drawers, shelves and cabinets move from room to room. With each new layer of paint and new knob or handle it becomes a modern feature in any interior. The simplicity and changeable surfaces of IVAR invite creativity and individual interpretations.
This is exactly how we are celebrating IVAR on its 50th anniversary, by giving the furniture expressions worthy of a modern icon. Minimalist cabinets are hung on the wall and painted in the same hue for a monochrome look. Using a layer of varnish, we’ve added a modern touch to the IVAR chairs, creating a tasteful combination of wooden surfaces. IVAR’s natural wooden structure adds depth and a tactile feeling to the room. Simplicity and changeable surfaces of IVAR invite creativity and individual interpretations.
Updating the classic shelf with an industrial touch are the steel metal cabinets. An enduring, robust contrast to the wooden structure of the other IVAR pieces. We’re impressed by the modern expression of this 50-year old. We would describe IVAR as functional, natural, changeable. Which IVAR are you? Which knob or handle do you choose for your drawer? What color, varnish or stain on your cabinets? In 2068 IVAR will celebrate its 100th anniversary!
