Ikea is offering up a very small apartment for a very small monthly rent. 

The Swedish retailer is accepting applications for a 110 square-foot apartment in Tokyo's Shinjuku District. The rent would be less than $1 a month. 

Ikea has furnished the space in what it believes is the most efficient way possible. 

"One of the keys is to make good use of the vertical space," the company said. "By capturing the room three-dimensionally, new possibilities open up in a limited space."

Applications for the apartment are due by this Friday and the lease agreement is through January 15, 2023.
