IKEA, the Swedish home furnishings giant with its U.S. headquarters in Conshohocken, has added stylish tiny homes with eco-friendly features to its offerings, writes Jessica Poitevien for the Travel + Leisure.
Despite its compact size, the company’s new product does not sacrifice any of the usual luxuries or comforts. To design the home’s features, IKEA has joined forces with Vox Creative and RV, as well as tiny home builder Escape.
The trailer is part of the IKEA Tiny Homes Project. It is a customized version of Escape’s Vista Boho XL model. The features that were added specifically for IKEA include solar panels and composting toilets, along with an on-demand heated water supply.
Vox has also created an online shopping experience that allows potential buyers to see what their home would look like inside and to buy furniture and other items to personalize the space.
“It was a natural pairing,” said Escape founder Dan Dobrowolski. “We feature many Ikea products in our various tiny home designs around the country, as they mirror the renewable, reusable, and recycled materials we incorporate into the actual structures.”
IKEA’s tiny homes start at $47,550.
