Mini mid-century

Until I ran across two delightful blogs called Mid Mod Mini and My Mini Mod Pod, I had no idea there was so much miniature mid-century furniture on the market. Naturally, I had seen the Vitra miniature chairs, which sell for hundreds of dollars, but that was the extent of my knowledge of tiny furniture.

I encourage you to take a look at these sites, because what you see there will amaze you. The scenes these hobbyists create are so detailed you'll think you're looking at a real house.

Take a look at some of the dollhouses and furnishings on the market now. I'm blown away by the beauty and accuracy...and by how much cheaper they are than the Vitra pieces.

    1. I really wouldn't mind having a small collection of some of the chairs on a shelf by themselves.
