The Ideal Home show is 100 years old – and to celebrate, the 2008 show will have much for the future, but also a touch of the past.

The show will feature the usual full-size builds of cutting-edge design (like the one pictured here dating back to 1971), including the Ultimate Eco House and an ostentatious luxury of the Dream House. But it will also feature Century Street – a recreation of houses from different eras, pulled from the shows archives, not to mention some art deco style, psychedelic sofas, retro cars, kitsch gardens and classic advertising. That alone sounds like it’s worth the admission fee.

The Centenary Ideal Home Show is held at Earls Court in London from 14th March – 6th April 2008. Tickets are available now.
