Antique experts on the website Barnabys have predicted that an Ikea table currently on sale at £45 could be worth up to £5,000 in the future.
Many items displayed on the BBC television program the Antiques Roadshow were acquired by people in their childhood and are now worth a lot of money. Many people speculate about what items they can buy that will become the valuable antiques of the future.
Antique experts from Barnabys have highlighted a £45 Lövbacken side table from Ikea which they predict may be worth around £5,000 by the year 2030.
To qualify to be a future antique, items need to be well designed, of quality and demonstrate innovation. Furniture should be both functional and good-looking. Not all future antiques are as cheap to buy today as the Ikea table. A Bernhardt Axiom Bench that costs £700 to buy now could be worth over £2,500 in 2030.
A Knoll Tulip High Table designed by Finnish designer Eero Saarinen costing £3,000 is predicted to be worth between £5,500 and £6,500 in 2030. This design was originally produced during 1955 to 1956 and has been described as iconic furniture likely to hold its value for decades.
It is probably unwise to buy furniture for its future value as predictions can be widely wrong. Instead of waiting for future antiques, visit a Lancashire antique dealer for items such as antique dining tables and antique wardrobes that will look good in your home and could increase further in value over time.
