Scandinavian Design in the Doll’s House 1950-2000

A must for mid-century lovers! Not for children, no way!

Delightfully child-like in some ways, perversely voyeuristic in others, this book has the potential to be a cult classic. It’s a fascinating journey in miniature through several doll’s houses complete with their original mid-century furnishings, wallpaper and details. Skillful photography puts you right into the center of these mint-condition dwellings, built during the 1950’s and ‘60’s by three internationally recognized Swedish toy makers, Brio, Lundby and Micki. All of these elements blend to create an incredibly rich historical document. This eccentric but addictive book will be a favorite of not only retrophiles and interior designers but also anyone who has spent long days playing with a beloved doll house.

    Hi, I know it's been a while but I thought you might like to know that this book is finally ready to be shipped! It was announced in 2007 but was delayed for what seems an eternity. You can keep track of it on Facebook where we've posted a couple of preview images! Thanks!
