IKEA’s Small Additions
Furniture & Lighting
Lovers of Vitra’s miniature furniture collectibles—but without the means by which to do the collecting—take heart. IKEA has jumped into the small-scale furniture game with a line of its most popular home products, a collection set to be released in August.
The HUSET (Swedish for “the house”) collection is comprised of scaled down (at a ratio of 1:15) replicas of their Klippan sofa, Expedit storage unit, Lack table, striped Stockholm rug, PS Vågö chair and Famnig heart cushion—created by the same design team responsible for the originals. So, finally, kids can follow in their parents’ footsteps by furnishing their modern houses with appropriate style, yes, but “at pocket money prices” too.
