2013 Ikea Doll House Furniture

My 2013-2014 Ikea catalog was delivered yesterday and I immediately spotted a toy that I have to have…..I mean my kids have to have.  A set of miniature iconic Ikea furniture!  The Huset Dollhouse Furniture set is new this year and its already a hit in Europe.   I dont think I can get to Ikea fast enough and I have a feeling that it’s not even in our American stores yet, but Im going to see anyway.

The European bloggers are already having fun with this set, this blogger has set up a well designed barbie house with it, check out all the pictures here:

I hope Ikea has manufactured A LOT of these sets, I definitely need two.  I have a feeling Macy wont want to share hers with Hudson and I think that its not specifically designed for girls, so he’s going to want it too.

I did a little looksie around the web and the idea of miniature ikea furniture has been introduced before, a New York Times article featured a dollhouse crafter that created her own modern furniture when she couldn’t find any available.  Check out some of her amazingly styled and handmade ikea dollhouse pieces: new-york-times-modern-miniature-dollhouse-ikea-bookshelf

Many modern furniture enthusiasts collect miniature Vitra chairs, I thought about it myself but being they cost several hundred anyway, I’d rather just invest in the full size chair.

If you know me, you probably know that I have a little obsession with designer chairs and have a pretty good collection that Im proud of, but the miniatures are so cute and tempting, so big thanks to Ikea for making affordable modern miniatures for me (I mean my kids) to indulge in!ColourCheck: Proof Magnus G
