Get yerselves down to Ikea if you don't get it. Hey, just go to Sweden, dudes!
About this creation
So, I am now taking GCSE Design and Technology. Our first project was to design and model a chair - and so that got me thinking about making Lego chairs. Add one visit to Moko's fantastic Brickshelf page, and bam! Instant chair obsession.

So, here's my first collection of chairs and other furniture: named the JOHN Collection (I'm known as John on Flickr). First up, here's the four fabulously photoshopped pages of a mock-Ikea catalogue.

NOTE: ALL THESE PIECES OF FURNITURE CAN BE SAT ON BY MINIFIGURES, AND ARE TO MINIFIGURE SCALE. THERE ARE NO MODDED ELEMENTS USED!


The front page, with a nice blurry sofa in the background of a table.

The first page has lots of homely stuff on it, including my table, which I really like. It's that half-stud offset that does it for me.

Now it's furniture for the office. Note that all the prices are in Swedish kroner (kr) - because this is Ikea, man!

Finally, the contemporary furniture. This page proved to be the most popular on Flickr, and I must admit it has some of my favourite stuff on it. The two benches are some of my best work - the two-seat bench's abstract shape was inspired by chairs designed by Frederik Roijé, who I studied for my Design and Technology project. Oh, and as some very annoying person pointed out to me on Flickr, the modern chair is art deco, not modern.

Now, because this is MOCpages and I can add loads of pictures on just one page, here's some extra angles of the furniture! Huzzah!


Hans Bloggsen, the model for the JOHN Collection. Hej, Hans!

Some cameras I made - these were meant for the little ad at the bottom of the pages, but they never made the final cut. Here they are anyway.

How the table stays together. I'm really pleased with this. Shame about the tiles on the sides standing out, though.

Hans gets a bit tipsy.

The Art Deco chair is fully flat-pack. Kinda.

How the writing desk is made. This is my own new technique, so no stealing without credit.

The little stool chair was a nightmare to keep together. Those studs only attach by a tiny bit to the centre of the 2x2 tiles, so they keep popping off. Remind me to never do those again.

A closer look at the bench. Unfortunately it didn't fit into any of the categories, so I couldn't show it fully like this. It's not the best, anyways.

I hope you enjoyed that! Stay tuned for more JOHN Collection stuff... I've got another mini-catalogue in the works...

Leg Godt!

Hmmm, stylish, reasonably priced, just one question, where can I pick up a catalogue? ;) Inspired.

Quoting Jhon Todd I'm making a modern house and would love to use some of your furniture. If I can, I'll give you full credit on the designs.
Sure, go ahead. Just remember to credit me somewhere :) There's also a second John Collection, be sure to check out some of the designs there.

Well William, or John, or whatever your name is, you've definitely got me looking forward to the next collection. Great stuff!

Some tasty techniques, especially the use of minifig hands in the writing desk to get that subtle slope. I have a red SNOT chair similar to yours in an upcoming MOC, fortunately it's different enough that it won't look like a ripoff of yours. Great work!
