Traditionally, during the Swedish winter, families gathered to make their homes cozy by making Christmas decorations.
In addition, the Swedish families enjoyed good food together, such as gingerbread.
Last Christmas, the Swedish furniture brand launched their own gingerbread edible flat-pack bake at home furniture.
Ikea now has bake-at-home kits to make gingerbread furniture in time for Christmas
The gingerbread furniture was part of Ikea’s Christmas offerings and featured bite-sized designs of some of their most iconic pieces.
Just some of the gingerbread pieces in the furniture are a bed, an armchair and a bookcase.
The replica furniture looks great once assembled – and there’s always room for some artistic flair with books, pillows and table decorations that can be easily made from leftover dough.
The images are easy to make and good for the whole family, according to Ikea
The furniture comes out as bite-sized versions of the brand’s most popular furniture designs
The furniture sets are free on the company’s website and come with assembly instructions, just like the popular flat-pack furniture.
There are six designs in total, including the Malm bed frame, Rens rug, Strandmon armchair, Billy bookcase, Lack table and Jokkmokk table and chairs.
Ikea says the furniture turns the humble gingerbread house into a gingerbread house.
