Sylvanian Town building comparison to cosy cottage & room set up

In my last post I forgot to add the dimensions of the building. Well here they are!

It is 26cm long, 15cm high & 10cm deep.
not very big at all.

It is about half as high as the current cosy/starter cottage

but as you can see it is still the same width

& it looks about half the depth

Also I had some people ask about the furniture set up, which is quite tricky!
Here are some of my photos of different ways of setting it up
The first is my favourite.

As you can see the sofa is a bit big for this little room & you have to get creative otherwise it blocks the door. When it is used for a child that wouldn't be so much of a problem, but for us adult collectors who want realism it is a bit of a put off.

Edit: In late 2017 Epoch/Sylvanian Families JP made a cartoon TV miniseries of 12 episodes., including one based in the Designer Studio/Apartment. I love the way they have furnished this room & I wish the rest of the decor was available to buy!


  1. Thank you, this is very thorough and helpful. I love this building set but I can tell placing the couch is probably going to me make me a bit mad. :) I may choose some other furnishings that fit a little better to use in this building.

    1. It can be a bit frustrating! I think this couch would look great in the Department Store, maybe as part of the Chocolaterie or Gelato shoppe?

  2. Thanks for the comparison,Chill!Very helpful to get an idea of the size of the building. As for the couch,it is totally out of proportion for such a small room. I agree with you, it would be perfect for the Department Store.

  3. Thank you for these Chill!
