Perfect tableGhisl62Bought this table a few months ago and it fits perfectly in the spot we had for it!5
Nice little tableG SmithBought this to snug up beside my new cuddle chair, and it looks good. Very easy assembly by screwing in the 3 legs. It was the easiest IKEA assembly I've ever had :).5
Classickaycee3Love its classic style. Fits my small living room.5
Unique shape and a real eye catcher !grobb84Bought this about a month ago when I wasn't even looking for a table. The outstanding design and shape lured me in. It was love at first sight. This table is used in my spare room to hold yoga accessories like my towel,block,plants and candles. I put my laptop on it for yoga pracrice. I will have this for decades to come!5
Lovbacken side tableGigi LauraGreat little versatile side table that works well anywhere. We are currently using it in our family room but realize it would also make a great bedside table. Love it!5
Beautiful coloringKaren1932I bought this 2. Weeks ago and I love it5
Beautiful and so easy to put together.MIKEYAI came home expecting to need tools to put this together, but all I had to do is screw in the legs! It's a pretty large surface. We use it as a coffee table in our small den.5
Perfect for small spacesBekanatorI bought two of these for my mid-century living room. The style is lovely. I love the woodgrain and the gold details on the legs. It's a nice narrow table that fits in tight spots in my small space. It's an IKEA table, yes, so it doesn't quite feel like a legit mid-century table (you still gotta screw the legs on and if you move the table you'll know it's not high end), but does its job to hold drinks or snacks. The $69 price tag just feels a bit steep for what it is.4
Great side tabledeeksyWe bought this a few months ago for our living room and it looks great. So far it's held up really well to the kids. Super easy to build.5
Lovbacken side tableBaba CI hesitated for quite a while and then decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did. I love it! The table is the perfect size and is SO stable. The pattern is beautiful and fits into my living room perfectly.5
Perfect coffee table for a small spaceEmma1993Looks even better than the images IKEA provides on their website. It is a beautiful piece for any living room, even as a secondary table for a larger space. It is rather small, but most definitely serves the purposes of a coffee table. Easy set-up, and is very sturdy.5
Great side tablePufuCute piece of furniture and it does its purpose well4
Love this post modern lookLove you BackReally easy to assemble. So far it doesn't wobble and stays sturdy. Otherwise I hope more products come out that look like this. I gave it 4/5 stars for the quality you'd expect from ikea but I'm in no way disappointed. Wood varnish has been durable for my needs and hasn't tarnished.5
Cute little tableJFW8I wanted a small unique end table for a sitting area. I love the leaf motif.5
Lovely unique tableApril1969I bought this is Oct and it has served my purpose as a table for a lamp very well.5

The return of a classic

Perhaps if Gillis Lundgren owned a truck the IKEA that you know today would be very different. You see, it was Gillis' small car combined with a slightly too large table that inspired the flat pack concept as we know it, and setting IKEA down a path completely different to any other furniture maker.

So many things that you might associate with IKEA sprang from that moment, from the flat pack, to the idea of assembling your own furniture, to the ultimately more affordable price tag that comes with doing things yourself. And the slightly too large table? These days it's called LÖVBACKEN and it's almost identical to that original table from the 50's.

An idea is born

If we look back to 1955, we can see Gillis, the marketing director of the still newly established IKEA exiting a furniture maker's workshop in rural Sweden. In his hands he has a sample of LÖVET, a graceful, leaf-shaped coffee table, to bring back to the IKEA headquarters. We can imagine him get to his car, open the trunk and flip the table to fit it inside. Only it doesn't. Maybe now he moves towards the front seat, angling the table in legs first in an attempt to fit it in. A shuffle here, a twist there. No luck. It's now perhaps eyeing the legs that he comes up with a plan. Why not just saw them off and reattach them later? The rest, as they say, is history. By tapping into the idea that it would be easier and more affordable for people to transport their new flat packed furniture home themselves and then assemble it themselves, the IKEA Concept was born.

Bringing back an icon

Flash forward to 2013 and product developer Glen Bengtsson sits with IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad in the small Swedish town of Älmhult. Amongst plans for new products, Ingvar has a special request. "He wanted us to have a look into the treasury books for some 'good old products' that we could bring back again," Glen says. "Over the years we could see that many people were very interested in these classic designs, and we felt the time was right to bring some back." Working with the Kamprad family, Glen says it was decided to remake a series of classic furniture from the 50's and 60's, including the most iconic piece of all — the coffee table LÖVET. The only hitch was that no one had the plans anymore. "We actually had to go to the IKEA museum to borrow one of their exhibits so we could trace the shape, weigh the table and photocopy the legs to prepare for production." Glen says.

One important difference

The aim of production was to produce a replica as true to the original as possible, with one important difference. "We no longer use the original jacaranda wood for the tabletop," Glen says. "It's an endangered species these days, so we now use more sustainable species, cut in a way so that they look identical. If you have the two side by side, it's almost impossible to tell the difference." The new version renamed LÖVBACKEN, now joins the IKEA family. Naturally it comes in a flat pack with the legs separate for assembly at home. Just like the original table from all those years ago.
