Roots of the IKEA Style Installation

I was tasked with updating the corridor leading to the sales floor in the Co-worker area. I found an existing internal document discussing what changes + innovations were happening worldwide that influenced furniture design through the years, like the invention of the television that inspired production of lower furniture to maximize viewing ability throughout the room.

I pared down that document and broke it out into decades. I also researched and added in significant world events to further illustrate how far IKEA has come in the short time since its inception, with an emphasis on historic events experienced in our local market area.
