Ferm Living Autumn/Winter 2016

For their Kids Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection, Ferm Living has a some great new items to take note of. My favorite is this Funkis Doll House. It really goes beyond the basic house shaped wall shelf that everyone has made versions of in recent years.

Funkis Doll House

The House Wall Storage comes in blue, rose and gray and is a casual, cute storage accessory.

For Autumn/Winter, much of the collection is divided into either the Party or the Seaside theme.

Here is their Bamboo Dinner Set in the Party pattern.

and the popular Half Moon pattern now comes in Baby and Junior bedding. It’s a great black and white modern option!

I can’t wait to incorporate some of the new designs in future nursery plans!

Flisat Kids Collection from Ikea

Shall I go so far as to say these are destined to become Ikea classics or even collectibles? Maybe I’ll reserve such strong judgement for after I see them in person, but Ikea has definitely hit the mark for the modern kids room with their Flisat collection.

I am most excited about the dollhouse / wall shelf. I love that it can be used with the dollhouse furniture (which we already have) or it can be hung and used as storage.

Ikea Flisat doll house and stools

The children’s desk can be adjusted to three different heights and you can add Trofast storage boxes to hold your art supplies. Buy a few of the wall storage ledges to create a simple and beautiful library wall.

The children’s table is also designed to be used with Trofast storage and it makes beautiful basic play table.

Ikea Flisat Children's Table and stools

Here the children’s stools create a little drop zone when paired with the colorful knob rack.

The toy storage bin looks sharp with the green accents, but I could see this piece being easy to customize in many different, fun ways.

Finally, the book display is perfect to place next to your favorite reading spot. My little one could use one next to his bed right now!

Forget that you know these are from Ikea and admire just how good these lacquered pine pieces look and how functional they can be in your child’s space! I can’t wait to find them at my local Ikea!

Mint Rhapsody Attic House

The original clear acrylic house was hard to see, but now Mint Rhapsody‘s Attic House is available in several more visible colors, so it’s about time that I share the photos with you.

Modern dollhouses don’t get much more stylish than this. Noir $375

And finally the nearly invisible Glacier Attic House

Find more photos of these amazingly gorgeous dollhouses on Instagram, after all, if you get one of these, it’s bound to become an Instagram fave.

Cubic Dollhouse Set

I’m ready to move into the new Cubic Dollhouse Set, though I must admit, personally I’d be more interested in a three bedroom place.

Seriously though, this amazing dollhouse is a MoMA exclusive and features a glazed roof, double height living room, and modern furnishings throughout. Furniture is included but the dolls are sold separately (and the patio isn’t currently available).

Just look how happy this little boy looks with his flat panel tv and ipad!

House in a Bag from des Enfantillages

With just enough detail to identify it, the House in a Bag from des Enfantillages is a portable canvas for imaginary play. The house set includes two interlocking pieces of plywood and storage bag ($62). The family and furniture are sold separately ($35) or you can furnish it yourself. I’m thinking empty matchboxes, wooden spool tables…

Etsy Find: MODplayhouse

They’ve been around since 2011, but I have yet to show you these modern modular playhouses.  Now with new photos and a new website, I think it’s time to let you know about these colorful cuties from MODplayhouse.

MODplayhouse

Not quite a “dollhouse”, the kits can be used to create all kinds of structures for whatever characters your kids choose to fill them with from fairies, to farm animals to dinosaurs.

il_570xN.492731343_koqs

With a system of interlocking panels and posts, the structures can be assembled many different ways.

MODplayhouse outside

I love that they’re handmade, eco-friendly and made in the US.  Of course those kinds of credentials come with a matching price tag.  The Starter Kit (not shown) is $125, the Basic Kit (middle image) is $225 and the Deluxe Kit (shown at the top) is $395.

Etsy Find: Modern Dollhouse from New8th Furniture

I know most of use aren’t in the market for a $450 dollhouse, but that doesn’t mean we can’t admire it.  From New8th Furniture’s etsy shop, this Black Walnut Modern Dollhouse is a tiny work of art.

Modern Dollhouse 2 is nothing to scoff at either. $350

Urban Girl Dollhouse

Here’s another modern dollhouse to help fuel my obsession. Take a look at the new Urban Girl Dollhouse.

This architect designed, open concept, urban house, is built in Indiana using eco-friendly materials and safe finishes.  It ships fully assembled and ready for play.  My only criticism is the name, as there’s nothing girly about this dollhouse and it’s perfect for boys and girls.

The dollhouse retails for $300 and the dolls and furniture sell separately.
