love and envy of the re-release of the famous LÖVBACKEN table. Love the design but envied all Europeans who had access to this table with apparently no hope of it ever reaching our shores here in America. That is until now.
Originally the table had been released as the LÖVET. Now, this 1956 leaf-shaped table with three legs and veneer top is being reissued at just $59.99 and is viewable in the 2014 catalogue, making it still affordable today. Knowing how Ikea loves to discontinue great items year over year, I'm going to buy a couple of these for safe keeping. For those of you not near an Ikea, don't worry I'm giving some of these away. Stay tuned.
I also want to give some away just to make me feel better about having gone all the way to London just to pick one of these up after being told by Ikea they weren't going to be offered in the US. Bah humbug.
