IKEA Dollhouse Furniture

Ever since I bought Pullip and Licca doll, I have been looking for 1:6 scale furniture.   Up to now, I only had 1:12 scale dolls, dollhouses and furniture.  I did manage to find two garden chairs and a table last week but I wanted something to furnish a living room.

After reading Melissa's post at Julia's Bookbag about IKEA dollhouse furniture (click HERE for her blogpost), I knew I had to stop by IKEA to take a look!  I was not disappointed.  The furniture set is AWESOME!  It's in 1:8 scale so it will fit Licca dolls perfectly.  Barbie dolls will be a little big for the furniture but it still works if you are not too picky! 

The set are miniature version of the Klippan sofa, Lack table, Expedit shelving unit, Vago chair, rug and heart cushion.


Unlike full-size furniture, the dollhouse furniture come already assembled.  The price tag of $12.99 makes this Living Room playset even better.  Here below is what is in the box:
  • 1 pink couch
  • 1 pink slipcover
  • 1 yellow chair
  • 1 green table
  • 1 white cubicle bookcase
  • 1 black & white striped rug
  • 1 red cushion

A bonus to the furniture playset are cardboard pre-perforated cut-outs that you can color and add to your Living Room:
  • 1 grandfather clock
  • 2 windows
  • 1 lamp
  • 1 parrot
  • 1 fruit bowl
  • 2 frames
  • 1 mirror
  • books

The couch is very sturdy and I like how the fabric slipcover can be taken out.  I am not crazy about the pink color but it's something that can be changed easily (the plastic couch with spray paint and the slipcover with fabric dyes).


Here below is a picture of the bottom view so you can see how it's made underneath. It is very sturdy and very well made.  The slipcover is attached with a velcro closure.

I placed all the furniture (except the cardboard cut-outs) on an IKEA bookshelf and used some of my Re-ment and Sylvanian Families decorations to fill up the cubicle bookcase.  

Licca-chan made herself feel at home right away. 
I think she looks quite comfy on that couch, don't you think?

  3. Not as elegant as the Bespaq set but the products don't fall way behind. The best thing about it is that it is easy to experiment on and of course, it is way cheaper. :)

    1. Hello Rachel! Thanks for your comment! I wished the older IKEA dollhouse furniture were still available. They were so beautiful! I hope IKEA will release more dollhouse furniture for the other rooms too!
