Store-Inspired Homes
The FIKA House by ON Design Partners is Like a Stylish Thrift Shop

The FIKA House isn’t a typical home. Taking up a 384-square-foot corner lot in Tokyo’s Toshima-ku ward, the FIKA House blurs the line between a private space and a public store. The ground level boasts a floor-to-ceiling shelving unit that holds objects for sale. The catch is that these objects are used on a daily basis by the homeowners themselves. But once washed and placed on the shelf, they become marketable one-off products.

Designed by ON Design Partners, the FIKA House focuses on Scandinavian accessories in particular. Like a well-curated thrift store, the designers note, “The sundries are precious collections rather than just commercial goods.” Thus, the FIKA House is sure to attract many different people.
