20% off New Items and all Sofas at

minimodernistas is having her Summer Sale! All of Doris' great new items and all sofas are 20% off until Aug 18th. I love the new white top coffee and side tables and bar stools, the new barrel lamp is a must have and the V-Leg Chairs are super cool.

all sale items here »

You may not know, but 3 years ago you could only find minimodernistas on ebay and flickr. I was a huge fan but it was hard to find all of her stuff. I contacted Doris and offered to build her a website. It's been a great ride getting to know Doris (who is now a dear friend), falling in love with her work and expanding my minimodernistas collection, but the website has been a rollercoaster. Unfortunately, the United States Postal Service changes their shipping rates calculator every year. This year they changed the api codes on July 28 without informing us, so the international rates stopped working (right after we sent out her newsletter announcing the Summer Sale). Huge thanks to Lisa Renfroe (yep small world, Lisa from PRDminiatures) for fixing the code and get the shipping caluclator to work again! You are my hero, thanks Lisa for fixing what I couldn't. Shop away, everything is working again. If you have any questions or problems ordering please contact and we'll fix it.

It's a beautiful day

I have U2's Beautiful Day stuck in my head. I had two awesome packages arrive that I wanted to put in a scene but between health and vacation haven't had a chance yet. I'm hoping to squeeze in a room setting inspired by this French set of magnets that were a gift from Anna-Maria aka The Shopping Sherpa (purchased from Typo). THANK YOU ANNA-MARIA!!!
I loved how she demonstrated her thought process on scene building in this post, inspired by a vintage style magnet. If you haven't yet, you should also check out her collection featured on The Huffington Post (her second featured article by them) with a great video too!

You may have seen this on Modern MC's twitter feed... Doris of minimodernistas made me one of these beauties, too. THANK YOU DORIS, I LOVE IT!!!!!! (Sorry for the backdrop, I have a sheet as a dust cover over my Antrim at the moment. Tacky! I know.) Doris has long been making V Leg Day Bed Sofas, but Modern MC tweeted this suggestion and the corner day bed sofa was born. Doris will be selling this as well as the cute pillows on her website soon. More to come...
