More chairs

Dollhouse Miniature Designer Chair Le Corbusier: Chaise Longue & Double Grand Couch

I think I have enough chairs for now, considering I have no place to put them. I found these at eTraders place. I'll have to wait for them to arrive from Singapore again, but now I have the couch to match my chair.

Designer Chairs Vol. 1

My designer chairs arrived today from Singapore after ordering them 8 days ago. I'm still waiting on books I ordered on Amazon before that. At this point you'd think I'm only collecting chairs.

You can find these on but I bought them through

The Le Corbusier design is what sold me on the lot.

Dream master suite

I saw these chairs on MiniModern's blog and bought them from West Elm, unfortunately before they went on sale for $6. This green room is my inspiration for the master suite I'll build to use the chairs in. I'm planning on making a matching headboard similar to this. All of course after I build the house.

Updated 1/8/08
These chairs are 2.5" x 2" x 4" making them roughly 1:9 scale. D'oh!
Thanks anonymous for your comments! They are also $3.99 now for anyone needing closer to Barbie size furniture. Again, Barbie gets all the cool modern stuff.

The House My Mom Built

I think my mom bought this kit when I was 8, but I didn't get the dollhouse until I was 11. Needless to say, it took awhile to build. A few decades later, my plan is to refurbish this dollhouse from Granny to Chic. More pictures to come along the way.

Modern Mini House - Round 1

Eventually I plan on designing a Contemporary Loft Dollhouse, but thought best to start from a kit. I found this Antrim modern kit at Earth and Tree Miniatures. I might have bought the last one, as I just found out it has been discontinued. Modern MC was able to get these pictures from Melodie at Earth and Tree Miniatures.

It is supposed to ship on 11/26 and I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival.

Eventually, I'd like to make a few versions of this house. I plan to replace some the walls with plexi-glass to open it up more and add a larger balcony. We shall see.

Earth & Tree Miniatures does have a nice contemporary kit that is part of their permanent collection, the Merrimack.
