We are just going to file this under “what the hell!” Seriously? Ikea chairs sold at Barneby’s auction for $65,000.00…yes that is I K E A chairs.  I wonder if these chairs referred to as clam chairs…still had their original “allen wrench’s?”

The real story is that the dealer’s mistook the chairs for Danish Architect Philip Archtander originals, thus elevating their true value.  But even though they were a case of mistaken identity…there are pieces highly sought after by collector’s from earlier Ikea Designer creation’s.

Ikea was opened in 1943 and here are some of the pieces that have sold for well over Ikea’s well known economical price point.
