No this isn’t the predecessor to Ikea, but it is an interesting look into furniture designs in areas of the world other than the France, Italy, U.S., and U.K. that we’re used to.  This is an original catalog of furniture from Sweden in the late 1800s depicting furniture in a variety of styles of the period: Renaissance Revival, Eastlake, and Rococo.  Aside from chairs, cabinets, sofas, mirrors, and stands, one page even depicts ornate window drapery that they were offering.  More photos of the catalog at the Ebay listing for it.
