Ikea weighs in with a new line of miniature furniture

I know I have been somewhat MIA lately, but that is nasty side effect of job, family, life, you name it. An email from Dornob just flashed on my computer screen and I thought you guys would be interested.

It seems that Ikea is launching a line of modern mini furniture, called "Huset."

The line "will provide replicas of a few of Ikea's best seller, such as the Lack table, Expedit bookcase, Klippan sofa and Vago chair."

According to Ikea, "the packaging for the set will include 2D illustrations of background items such as clocks, windows, books and picture frames that can be attached to the walls of a doll house to further deck out the miniature domicile."

Although I have to admit that I am disappointed that the line contains so few pieces, it is still good news for those of us that want more modern furniture in miniature as we prepare our contest entries.

Expect more posts from me soon!

Wishing you only good things, Neen


  1. Nice simple pieces. I love the little heart cushion - so cute.

  2. YAY! That's the best news I've had for ages. One, you're back, and two Ikea miniatures!!

    I bet they don't come to Australia. It'd be too good to be true!

  3. I like the style but not the plastic and colors. To me looks to toyish. But there but for the grace of paint! LOL
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is already in Finland IKEAs and I heard that it is Barbie size and too big for 1:12 :(

  5. Hey Neen,
    I hear the mini Ikea are going to be 1/15th scale?!? People just love throwing us modernists a curve ball. I can't wait to see what people will do with these items.

  6. That's great to hear. I occasionally see vintage IKEA dollhouse furniture online and have wondered why they didn't still make it.

    Hopefully they will expand the line.
