Any modern-day parallels?[edit]

I was thinking that some modern-day furniture outlets - such as Ikea, for example - might be considered makers of modern 'utility furniture'.

OK, it's not entirely simple, boxy stuff, but a lot of Ikea and similar stores' furniture is fairly un-ornamented.

Note: this is not an ad for Ikea, I'm just using them as an example. :-)
