Retro never goes out of style, and IKEA is fronting this new-old wave with their latest Nytillverkad collection: the 5th edition of this iconic range that’s now in stores, and available on the IKEA e-store from 1st August.

The iconic KLIPPAN now in 3 new colours

First designed by Noboru Nakamura in 1980, the KLIPPAN sofa has been a mainstay in many homes over the years for its functional, clean look and customisable options━paired with the Långban cover which you can switch up to match the seasons.

Retailing at $399, inclusive of a sofa cover, the KLIPPAN now comes in 3 new colours: Långban bright red, bright blue, and bright yellow.

If you already have a KLIPPAN at home, the Långban covers are sold at $140 a pop, packed in matching textile bags so you can store them with ease.

POÄNG: cheaper, smaller, & in edgy new colours

Going even further back into the IKEA archives, the POÄNG armchair was first launched in 1977 as POEM. In a shocking turn of events, the price of this chair hasn’t risen with inflation, but instead costs less than it did back in the day.

Now retailing at $159, the latest iteration of the POÄNG sees a sleeker, low-back design that’s more space-efficient than older versions. Fans of the chair will note that the headrest has been removed and the updated design is said to support a more active sitting position, instead of being a lounging chair.

The sky’s the limit, or in this case, 9 different ways of mixing and matching the seat cushion colours with the POÄNG armchair frame. If you’re looking to get extra cushions, the POÄNG armchair cushion with low back comes in 3 colours: Katorp natural colour/beige, Vissle black, and Vissle red.

The rest of Nytillverkad V5 is a retro vibe

The Nytillverkad collection doesn’t stop there; other iconic pieces have been reimagined in eclectic, pop art-worthy colours include the SKÅLBODA steel bowl armchair ($99), now coated in an orange polyester powder coating.

For something more cushy, consider the SOTENÄS ($299), which first appeared in IKEA’s 1969 catalogue as PUCK. The 2024 edition sees a yellow underframe with a matching Hakebo yellow cushion, perfect for that pop of colour in your home.

Dialling it back to 1956, the LÖVBACKEN side table ($119) has been given new life in 3 new colours: blue, green, and orange.

“Have you heard about Jerry?” sang Louis Armstrong back in the 1960’s━if you haven’t, IKEA’s very own DOMSTEN stool was first released in 1973 as JERRY. V5 of the Nytillverkad collection sees the stackable stool with legs in lilac, light green, and orange.

Paired with a solid pine seat, this is great for adding a subtle pop of colour if you’re feeling apprehensive about decking your home out like a kaleidoscope.

Alternatively, accessorise in the form of TUVKORNELL candle holders ($14.90). These come in a set of 3, first seen as CYLINDER in 1982. Add a touch of fun to your kitchen or living room with these bright blue, green and purple holders, best set against solid white candles.

The new IKEA Nytillverkad collection clothes classic pieces in retro colours

There’s no school like old school, and IKEA reminds us of that with their new Nytillverkad collection. Iconic IKEA furniture have been given new life with updated designs and colours that pay homage to the good ol’ days of colour pop-py fun. Step aside, muted Japandi palettes.
