Beautiful IKEA cabinet that was initially designed as a wedding gift for Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of IKEA.
The cabinet is made of natural oak veneer with all edges in full oak, which limits the damage. The cabinet has acquired a beautiful warm colour over time, and has a strong architecture with beautiful straight lines.
Kamprad liked the cabinet so much, that in 1963 it was available in all IKEA stores as the MTP series. And for a reason, it’s a beautiful example of Scandinavian design.
The cabinet is in excellent condition, apart from a minimal wear and tear. It’s refinished by my restorer, but she didn’t remove the natural wear that gives character.
Please note that it wasn’t until 1963 that IKEA’s first branch outside Sweden opened. It was Norway that got the honor. The first branch in Denmark only came in 1969! What I am saying is that good IKEA furniture from the early 1960s is rare, and therefore this item is collectable!
