6 Homes That Show Off Their Bearbrick and KAWS Figures In Style

They’re not meant to be hidden away!

KAWS and Bearbrick figurines have taken the world by storm. There’s just something about their cool, quirky appeal that makes it impossible for collectors to stop at just one – in fact, celebrities like Steve Aoki and BTS’s RM have entire rooms dedicated to their prized collections.

But as much as you may want to dedicate an entire space to your collection like they have, you most probably don’t have the space to do so. Not to worry, though, as there are still ways to show them off in your HDB flat, as you’ll soon see!

If you’re often the host for group meals, it’s only fitting to have a display area erected in the dining room! Just take a look at this $325K renovation project in Tampines, where a large display area was created right behind the dining table, in full view of guests sitting down to have their meal.

On top of that, the colourful figurines also stand out against the muted colour theme of the home, making it even more eye-catching!

Few things can draw attention to something like a series of well-placed lights can. You see them in display areas used in malls, museums, hotels… and now, even homes!

One of said homes: this jumbo flat in Ang Mo Kio, where the warm backlights serve as a bright backdrop against the otherwise neutral-coloured home.

For the folks living in smaller homes, don’t worry if you don’t have the space for a display case. Even something as simple as a built-in shelf can give you the space you need to display your figurines – while still giving you precious storage space for your other things.

For added visual appeal, paint your shelf in a shade that contrasts with your home’s colour palette, like how it’s done in this 5-room flat in Yishun!

4. This home with a display shelf high up the wall

The truth is, kids and pets tend to get into places you may not want them to – and that could very well be where you’re storing your figurines. Shudders.

If you’re truly intent on keeping your figurines out of harm’s way, place them out of reach by storing them on a shelf up high. Try using a shelf that runs the entire length of the wall – like the one you see in this condo – as it’ll help to visually lengthen the space.

We also love how the multi-colour Bearbricks blends seamlessly into the home’s retro Peranakan look!

5. This home with a display ‘feature wall’

Using different colours and materials for your feature wall? Pfft, so mainstream. For something more unique, why not use your Bearbrick or KAWS figurines as part of your feature wall instead?

With how vibrant the figurines are, they’ll easily create visual interest without you needing to paint the wall a different colour. Simply stick on a few shelves, put up your figurines – and voila! One eye-catching feature wall, done.

6. This home with Bearbrick figures in unused corners

Due to their size, 1000% Bearbricks (70cm in height) work well enough as standalone decor. So, there’s no need to place them on a shelf or in a display case – simply place them in empty corners around your home for extra pizzazz.
