I love-y a good miniature (tiny outdoor playhouses, bebes, mini cupcakes... mini donuts... baby elephants... baby giraffes) Anyway--- you get the idea. And tiny books, can't forget those.
This love for tiny definitely extends to furniture. Now, it's kind of a stretch to call a settee a miniature sofa, because it's not so much miniature as it is just small.
Here are some examples I just love:
classy + understated
glamorous + daring
ANDRE ARBUS LE TROYEN SETTEE
fresh + welcoming
MICHAEL WEISS WELLINGTON SETTEE
sophisticated + timeless
Delicious delicious delicious!
And perfect for people who are trying to downsize, want to maximize space in an apartment, or just need the perfect piece of furniture for a corner.
Have you seen the latest House Beautiful? The July/August 2010 issue asks "Is Small the new Big?" and features how to make studio apartments, guest homes, and one-bedroom dwellings feel palatial.
If you at all are trying to put 'living small' into practice, then I highly highly recommend getting your hands on this issue. You can borrow mine if you're close by!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and thank you to all my commenters, you make my day!!!
