AN ENTIRELY NEW APPROACH TO MODEL HOMES – THE 100% IKEA DESIGN
We are so excited! Beasley & Henley has been tapped by home builder Lennar Homes to create an entirely new find of model home: the IKEA HOMES. This will be an entirely new thing in the design of model homes. It is really exciting to be the design firm making it happen! While IKEA furnishings are sometimes featured in small home design or apartments, the Beasley & Henley Lennar models will be full sized, single family homes for sale in Central Florida.
The Rio at Summerlake is a 2634 square foot home with 6 bedrooms and 3 baths. The price for Rio is in the low $300,000s. The Asheville at Harmony is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 Bath home with 2515 square feet, priced in the low $200,000s. The ubiquity and reasonable price point of IKEA’s furnishings led Lennar to champion this innovative design idea. Everyone buys IKEA furnishings, especially when it’s your first home, so why not figure out how to do the entire thing in IKEA? We think it’s great! We are figuring some things out as we move through the process since there is not a ’road map’ in place for this kind of furnishings and installation format.
The homes are expected to be open to the public in November 2015. We will continue to send updates out throughout the next few weeks on the design decisions and the process they create as they begin this approach to model home designs. We’re excited about the process and look forward to sharing the final results in a few months.
