Vintage Ikea Ad

I was leafing through House & Home issues from 1996 and stumbled upon this Ikea ad that reminded me of my blog post on dark green kitchens. In a sea of dated (and hilarious!) mid-90s designs was this surprisingly fresh space! I think the cabinets and butcherblock countertop offer a timeless country look that could easily be updated today with nothing more than new hardware (and less plaid). What goes around, comes around, right?
