An Ikea table on sale for just $79 could be worth a lot more in years to come.
Originally launched in 1953 as the Lövet, the brown side table became Ikea's first ever flat-pack product and proved to be very popular with shoppers.
Now re-released as the Lövbacken, online antique auction firm Barnebys have estimated that it could be worth a lot more in the near future.
The company says it could be worth £1,000 — £1,800 by 2030 ($A1755 — $A3159) and £3,000 — £5,000 by 2040 ($A5265 — $A7775).
“Selling for thousands at some of Sweden's leading auction houses, the Lövbacken has become a collectible for the most discerning of furniture experts, I wouldn't be surprised if the development in its value would look like this in the future," Barnebys co-founder Pontus Silfverstople wrote.
