Certain pieces from the world’s largest furniture retailer, IKEA, don't necessarily have to call to mind one's first apartment. Auction search engine Barnebys revealed that select vintage IKEA pieces are now fetching up to $65,000 on the auction block.
Many of the products that are now collecting top dollar were created by some of Denmark’s most notable designers. Architect Philip Arctander’s Clam chairs currently are the top-selling product, and Verner Panton and Karin Mobring’s products have also made a comeback.
