Default To Martin and Alain (Abocc), regarding IKEA / Swedish Design

>Have I seen that table and those chairs at IKEA?

That I strongly doubt Martin :-) Mostlikely a designer is asked to advise them about their furniture and my guess is that the tables and chairs are from the eighties. Late seventies or early nineties perhaps even, I
am not really sure about that.

Alain spoke of simple and pure lines. I like to relate them to functionality in Swedish Design.
I do have quite some reading material about Swedish Design in a small library at home, but a more accessible source is the following link, I guess:

The official gateway to Sweden with an interesting view on Swedish Design.

Also Scandinavian Design might give you some insight.
(Moving your mouse over the frontpage should reveal some objects, including my favourite chair called The Egg by the Danish designer Arne Jacobsen. Earlier I longed for purchasing a Barcelona Chair by the German designer Mies van der Rohe, but my dreams moved with me to more northern styles :-)
