IKEA Mini Furniture

Have you guys heard that IKEA is releasing miniatures? The set is called Huset and features the Klippan sofa, Lack table, Expedit shelving unit, Vago chair, Stockholm rug, and Famnig Hjärta pillow. As someone who loves miniature anything and also loves modern furniture, I am super excited about this launch. I suspect a lot of design-nerd parents are going to rush to buy these for "the kids." (If you own miniature Vitra furniture, yes I'm talking about you.)

I also love that they photographed the miniature furniture in handmade, diy dollhouses, as those are my favorite kind. It reminds me of being a little kid and making furniture and rooms for my Barbies, which incidentally is how I "played" with them. I never acted out scenarios between the dolls. Instead, I made them furniture, styled their clothes, and sometimes cut/colored their hair (with markers). Clearly, whatever this design bug is that I have has been there from the beginning. :)

  1. Oh wow I didn't know that! I love miniature stuff as well so now I can't wait!
    Really like those sets they created, they're simple and cute.
    I used to chop the hair on my barbies into bobs and some of them got blue hair :)

  2. I didn't know about this, but I'm a huge IKEA fan and now I want these!

  3. Too funny! Wish the had these when we were kids :)

  4. That's so cool! One or two pieces would look great in my new studio. Must check them out next time I'm at IKEA :)

  5. Gasp! I could put a mini expedit on my real expedit! Inception!
