IKEA is curating its first ever exhibition titled The Collection.
Eccentric Brits are spending £287 a year on their passion for collecting and the furniture giant has launched a show which will celebrate the lives and loves of some the UK's greatest collectors.
Weird and wacky items will be displayed from taxidermy to Doll's House Furniture and Beatles memorabilia.
The research also found that the average British home contains £7,176 worth of collectables while seven million people in the UK collect stamps.
The exhibition by IKEA runs at The Proud Archivist gallery in London from 21 to 23 January.
