Back in August, we discussed that Room Copenhagen, the Danish company that makes many of the official LEGO storage and display solutions like LEGO storage bricks, minifig storage heads, minifig display cases, etc., was going to release wooden versions of their products made of soap treated or dark stained solid red oak.
The new product line called LEGO Home is now available at the Online LEGO Shop and includes wooden desk drawers shaped like 2×2 and 2×4 bricks, a wooden picture frame, a wooden bookrack, and wooden wall hangers. They were all made to look like LEGO elements with studs and the LEGO logo. As mentioned above, all the products are available in a lighter soap treated version and a dark stained version.
The 2×2 wooden desk drawer is 6.2 x 6.2 x 4.4 inches (158 x 158 x 113 mm), the 2×4 wooden desk drawer is 12.4 x 6.2 x 4.4 inches (316 x 158 x 113 mm), the wooden picture frame is 10.6 x 7.5 x 1.9 inches (268 x 191 x 47 mm), and the wooden bookrack is 18.8 x 3.1 x 4.5 inches (478 x 78 x 115 mm). The wooden wall hangers come in a three-pack with three differently sized round plates; 3.7 inches / 3.09 inches / 1.85 inches (94 mm / 78.5 mm / 47 mm).
Although these storage and display units are beautiful, they are also very expensive. The 2×2 wooden desk drawer is $129.99, the 2×4 wooden desk drawer is $199.99, the wooden picture frame is $99.99, the wooden bookrack is $119.99, and the three-pack of wooden wall hangers is $99.99. Unfortunately, at these prices, they will remain novelty decorative items instead of practical storage units. Nonetheless, if you want to check them out, they are now available at the storage solutions section of the Online LEGO Shop.
And if you are looking for the standard, and much cheaper version of LEGO storage and display solutions by Room Copenhagen, they are available both at Amazon and the Online LEGO Shop. Here are the links:

I was thinking some of those (especially the wood buttons) would be fun in a home woodworking shop, but at those prices might be more fulfilling to try to make your own! 😀
I was looking forward to these, but not at those prices. Nope.
They are beautiful, but outrageously expensive. I rather stick with the plastic ones.
Man, I wish the price was better. I could use some of these. What’s the point of making them so expensive?
Nice, very nice, but damn, those prices! These are way out of my reach. Or, rather, I prefer to spend my money on real lego.
HARD Pass. They are clueless as to market pricing for something like this.
And here I thought the wooden minifigure was expensive! Yikes!
I have been waiting for these, even looking at amazon.co.uk to get (but they won’t ship these to the US) – YIKES! Those prices are beyond the pale! As lovely as they are, I won’t be buying any unless they reduce the price point.
I’m still more fascinated by these strange generic art pieces than the actual boxes advertised…
Just today, I saw some similar Lego boxes at a thrift store, but the way they are constructed leads to a lot of space not being used. Considering how much stuff I need to stow away constantly, that alone leads me to mostly pass on them. As a Lego fan, they’re cute, but they’re actually not particularly practical…
Haha! Yeah, those art pieces are… interesting…! 😀
And yes, storage continues to be a problem. I use the plastic version of these storage drawers with studs, but I’m still running out of room and started to have random bins filled with halfway built projects and loose pieces. I dread the thought of having to organize them. And I have no idea where to put them. But these are all First World problems, so I don’t complain. I just took over several big boxes of LEGO and other related stuff to a charity shop. I hope some kids will enjoy them for the holidays.
If there are bricks I really don’t know what to do with, I could give them away to my nephew and nieces, I guess. But it’s always unsure of what kind of parts you’d need for your future projects… =D
Speaking of the art again, it made me think of this Swedish book where two local artists had examined the artwork found in the backgrounds of Swedish comic books. (Although the comics themselves mostly were produced in places like USA, Belgium, Italy and Spain…) I remember there were several examples of paintings of black squares looking almost exactly like the dark brown square in the third photo.
They even arranged an exhibition where they produced life-size replicas of the artwork and sculptures in galleries. Pretty funny, although I missed attending it.
Interesting! Comics are is a fascinating genre! I’m gonna have to start looking at the backgrounds more closely. 🙂
These artists often worked out certain shorthand techniques, which quickly found their way around the world and the drawing studios. As time passed, it didn’t have much to do with actual reality anymore…
