Ikea’s First-Ever Tiny House Is Both Eco-Friendly And Practical


There’s no denying that the tiny house movement is here to stay. What began as a series of art installations in the 1970s, later evolved into a niche subset of environmentalism in the ’80s and ’90s. It has now become a mainstream pop culture phenomenon. From TV shows to social media, the tiny house craze continues to gain traction—and for good reason. So when Vox Creative was given the opportunity to partner with IKEA on a campaign about sustainable living, it was a no-brainer.

The project named the Ikea Tiny Home Project is a 187-sq-ft (17-sq-m) model, filled with Ikea products and can run off-the-grid thanks to roof-based solar panels. The ‘Ikea Tiny Home’ is the perfect fit for anyone who is constantly on the move or wanting to mix and match remote work with adventuring.

So, scroll down, and check out the tiny home that was originally built in March. (It was shown to the world only recently.)

Let us know what do you think of it.

The Tiny Home Project is a collaboration between Ikea, Vox Creative, Curbed, and Escape.

It has quite a large place to snuggle up too.

Photos like this one are making us long for a life far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We love how everything blends together so well.

Dan Dobrowolski, the founder of Escape, completed the project for Ikea in less than two months. He told Lonely Planet that the collab was “natural” because they feature a lot of Ikea’s products in their tiny home designs. “They mirror the renewable, reusable, and recycled materials we incorporate into the actual structures.”

The Boho XL might be tiny, but the price isn’t all that small—the Ikea collab home costs around $63,350, according to Business Insider. Meanwhile, the Vista Boho XL is priced at $47,550 as per Escape’s website or 331 dollars per month. However, depending on where you live, this might be much cheaper than getting your own apartment or house. You can buy these tiny houses from Escape‘s website.

It’s a dream home for anyone who’s eco-minded and constantly on the move. What do you think of it? Let us know in the comments.
