This year marks Ikea's 75th year in business, and to celebrate the company is dusting off old blueprints and reviving some designs from the past. The plan is to re-release selected pieces from three eras--the 1950s-'60s, '70s-'80s and '90s-'00s--and produce them in a limited quality in a line they're calling Gratulera.

Thus far they're only releasing teaser images of what will be on offer for each era:

The plan is to start rolling them out shortly, on a schedule: This month the 1950s pieces will appear, with the '70s and '90s designs coming out in October and December, respectively.
