We first wrote about Lille Huset when they were looking for funding on Kickstarter. Well good news for us: they successfully made their goal and have since launched their line of eco-friendly modular dollhouses, created a new website, and attended their first NYIGF. I visited their booth at the show last week and was impressed by both their design and their green mission.
Inspired by a little house in Logan Square, Chicago, Lille Huset is the creation of Alyson Beaton. The products are made in the USA using wood, recycled/ recyclable paperboard, and earth friendly printing practices. The front of each house is made from baltic birch and is meant to be reused. The rest of the house is made from recycled paper and sold in replacement packs so you can pass your house on or start again while saving the most expensive part, the wood front.
Your kids could keep the houses spare and minimalist, but likely they'll want to decorate them. Alyson recently launched the blog Lille Ideas chock full of ideas for decorating and furnishing your house (like how to make a record player from a teeny gift box).
Lille Huset ($60) is available in five designs as well as mini versions ($12, think holiday village!)
