Ikea going back in history

Ikea's textiles assortments are incorporating more formal designs in its 2005 catalog, which dropped earlier this month.

The retailer pulls in centuries-old textiles designs from Europe, with toile-like florals and lace touches on Alvine bedding. Although Ikea's signature contemporary looks dominate the textiles assortment, classic small-scale floral patterns turn up in coverlets, window treatments and shower curtains.

Also new: a redesigned line of mattresses with cotton ticking padded with materials such as camel hair, wool and silk.
