Ikea Drona boxes

10 replies

They’re the fabric boxes that fit into a Kallax.

Does anyone know if they will be bringing out more colours soon? I love them - they’re ideal for kids rooms and the playroom (plus others - we love a kallax in this house) Cheap to replace, or to give the room a new look. However the current colours are all very boring, and not really suitable for children’s rooms. You can buy discontinued colours on eBay/amazon, but obviously they’re a lot more expensive.

Alternatively, does anyone else sell the same size box, preferably in bright colours.

Sorry for boring post.

Try eBay - I got some very pretty blue & white flowery ones from there recently.

Prices vary widely though so look carefully Smile

Oh, sorry, didn’t read far enough & you did mention eBay! Mine were quite reasonable considering p&p was included.

Agree that Ikea’s are very dull atm (and they’re not all listed on one page Confused)

I think they have new ones out that aren't called drona; they have lids and are more expensive, but have some variety in colours. I need to double check the dimensions before I order some though!

Dunelm have some!

Says 33x33x37 - assume 37 is the height?

Argos too (though only in sets of 4)

I’ve just measured and the drones are 33 wide by 33 high and the depth is 37. I’ll go and look at Dunelm, thank you.

@GiantKitten I think I know the blue and white ones you mean, and I love them.

@beautifulshoes I wouldn’t mind lids, but don’t really like the more expensive part!

My brother lives in Australia, but since sending me mint maltesers was too much effort, I can’t see him shipping me some boxes Angry

Oops, yes, 37 is the depth, you’re right! I hadn’t measured them, just assumed that “cube” meant 4 square sides Grin

Some of the Argos character ones are a bit smaller, but would still fit of course.

This eBay merchant has the blue/white - also bright pink - for a not unreasonable price (& even better if they would double up the p&p

Can you still get plain white and paint them using fabric paint?

Homebase also sell their own version in quite a few different colours, same dimensions as you're after.

www.homebase.co.uk/cube-fabric-insert-ochre_p513309

Normally £6 each. Some colours are in the sale though for £1.50!

I have a couple in steel blue and they are better quality than the online photos suggest.
