Multi-Functional Matroshka Furniture with Three Rooms

It starts out like this as nested tables, nested cushions and tables and converts into 3 major rooms:


1) Bedroom

2) Couch/Meeting Area and 3) Dining Room

Look at just how neat and multi-functional a place could be.

Really, how often do friends come over impromptu and need to have a dinner or a meeting area?

You usually know ahead of time (enough to re-arrange everything) if there are more than a few friends and they don’t want to crash on the bed.


Here’s the kicker:

$112,000 Swedish Krona = $17,614.35 CAD or 13,500 EUR for those of you out there (Matroshka).

I mean, I want to say it’s made out of fantastic materials, and so on (which I am sure it is), but $17,614 and change is a lot of money for furniture, although you should keep in mind that it’s decorating 3 rooms at once.

It’s about $5871.33 per room, and this is where you squeal and tell me that the dining room looks the same as the couch… but nevertheless, it has a lot of clever, useful storage.

That said, if you only have a small place and can’t really afford to buy a bigger place (or you don’t want to), and you have some cash to burn, this could be an interesting purchase.

    I have moved from a 3 bedroom home into a 10×10 bedroom due to health issues. This is ideal for the storage I need in the small space I have to work with. Shame it’s so expensive. However, wheels are turning to build our own version and use Ikea items.


      You know, why not? Ikea hack it!

    Love the principle, even if I wouldn’t pay the price myself…

    Remember that this (and Ikea) are from a country with a history of small urban apartments. In the 1920s a lot of people moved to the cities and there was much quick building to accomodate them. It was normal to have a bench-bed in the kitchen area and a convertible couch, with few if any dedicated bedrooms. A family might live in 2 rooms this way and so have more daytime space but less personal space (and apparently few personal possessions). It is very efficient. I guess most of us have become used to having more space, even in Europe, now, tho personally I like smaller spaces! And multi-use furniture. 😉

      I don’t necessarily like smaller spaces, I like more space, which means in any space we’re in, minimal furniture is key. Our living room is totally bare and I like it like that. The less furniture and stuff, the better.

    I love it!

      I’m really drawn to it.

    That is SO cool… Although WAY too pricey for what it is. I feel that someone who is more carpentry savvy can easily make that (or Ikea hack it at the very least).
