Some of IKEA’s furniture can’t even be ordered online … but a whole house? Yes, they will ship and build it all for a price that one might expect from them: $86,000.
In combination with architecture by IdeaBox, IKEA’s role is partly to provide likewise-economical furniture and furnishings for this dynamic abode. OK, dramatic might be a bit, well, dramatic – it is IKEA, after all, straight lines with little detail are to be expected throughout.
In some ways, the concept is all about simplifying your decisions – avoiding the paralysis of choice – while providing all the endless modular possibilities one comes to expect from IKEA.
From IdeaBox: “Working with IKEA Portland designers, we designed aktiv around IKEA systems. In the kitchen, IKEA offers a lot of flexibility in kitchen cabinets. We designed the layout, and our clients can select the colors. IKEA appliances offer state-of-the-art cooking, so we included an induction cooktop and convection oven. A counter depth refrigerator keeps food fresh, and cabinet faced dishwashers provide seamless functionality. Proven by millions walking on them in IKEA stores, aktiv offers IKEA flooring, a perfect match for active Northwest lifestyles.”
