IKEA Japan introduced the furnished home in a YouTube video.
The tiny apartment takes advantage of vertical space
The tiny apartment is furnished with functional Ikea furniture, such as a cabinet with wheels.
There is a loft with a single bed and some room for storage. That helps save space in the tiny home.
The apartment has a kitchenette and a tiny bathroom. There is also a sofa bed, a small desk area, and an open wardrobe. You can pull out the desk to expand it when you have friends over.
The high ceiling of the room makes it look bigger. The windows are located high at the level of the bed loft. Optimizing the vertical space is the key in this tiny home. The tall, adjustable shelf brings more storage space into the room.
The apartment even comes with IKEA decorations, such as paintings, sculptures, and lamps. The room decor has a Scandinavian style.
If you're not into IKEA furniture, this home would be a nightmare. Only IKEA Family members were allowed to apply to move in, though. So, it is likely that the applicants love IKEA home decor.
The application period is over, but IKEA Japan hasn't revealed the new tenant yet
The application period for the 99-yen tiny home ended on December 3rd, 2021. Likely, IKEA Japan has already chosen the new tenant. The lucky winner might have already moved in.
According to IKEA Japan's campaign Twitter account, the furniture company received many applications for the tiny apartment.
