There is something about miniature furniture that never fails to entice interest – delicate yet proportionate, small yet sturdy, miniatures provide perfect conversation pieces for the home.
Originating as apprentice pieces or as cabinetmakers’ models, miniature furniture was always intended for display either as a demonstration of skill or as a scaled down version of a final piece that could be commissioned.
Architect Design Blog recently visited our new trade only High Point showroom and spotted some of our new, smaller than average, introductions that are inspired by these models and based on full-size pieces in our line.
While their reproductions are what the company is most well known for, such as Althorp, they also produce a line designed by the Keno Brothers, of Antiques Roadshow fame. The brothers’ line is inspired by the lines of mid-century modern but incorporates the high quality wood detailing that the company is so well known for.
I think my favorite pieces of all though are these miniature chairs and reproductions which measure in at a mere 11″ high. How great would these look lined up on a bookshelf? I suppose they bring out the child in us all!
