No, we’re not just using the blog to say Happy Birthday to one of our friends. The Billy in question is in fact a bookcase, and he’s a bookcase you probably own.
Billy is of course the name of Ikea’s most-sold product, and therefore quite possibly the most common item of furniture in the world, and this year is the 30th anniversary of the product’s launch. To celebrate, Billy is getting a makeover, and being released with a number of new limited-edition designs.
We’re not sure we’d want one in our house, but they are quite cool pieces of design all the same, and we’re very happy for him.
