IKEA and ESCAPE Join Forces to Build Sustainable Tiny House

How long have we all waited for a tiny house from IKEA? Thankfully we don’t have to break out the Allen wrenches and instruction books for this one.

The IKEA Tiny House Project floor plan is based on the Vista Boho XL by ESCAPE.

The Swedish furniture maker has recently partnered with tiny house favorite, ESCAPE, to produce a tiny house titled the IKEA Tiny Home Project. The 187 square foot model is based on the ESCAPE Vista Boho XL design and contains a kitchen, living room, main floor bed, and bathroom. The home is different from the Boho in that all the cabinets and appliances are provided by IKEA. The home is also filled with IKEA furniture and home accessories and topped with solar panels for off-grid living.

The home is full of IKEA cabinetry and furniture.

The project was created to inspire not only creative and beautiful design, but to encourage more sustainable living. The exterior is finished with a shou sugi ban, or Japanese style charred wood, the interior is covered in sustainably grown pine, the IKEA kitchen unit is made of recycled wood and plastic bottles, and the IKEA faucets use less water than regular faucets.

The products were chosen for their sustainability and design aesthetics.

If you are already a fan of IKEA products, you will recognize the MALM storage bed, the NORDEN gateleg table, the SKOGSÅ countertops, and TILLREDA induction cooktop. The home even includes IKEA bedding, pillows, and cute lamps and other accessories.

The home is for sale from ESCAPE for $63,350.
