The furniture giant brings back its original three-legged table and gives it a new name.

Swedish furniture company IKEA has decided to bring back its first three-legged leaf-shaped top side table from 1956. Originally called the Lövet, the Lövbacken will be available again, 60 years after it first came out in Sweden.

The Lövet was first sold in flat-pack form after designer Gillis Lundgren unscrewed the legs of the table so he could fit it into the trunk of the car then reassembled everything when he got to his home. Thus the idea of selling furniture in flat-pack form was born.
