petite maison

I have an eccentric menagerie of two dozen or so miniature toys that includes a tiny burger, fries and shake, a neon green flip-flop and an inch-long rubber chicken. (The plastic bone-in leg of ham is my pride and joy.) I have often felt that this collection should include a few pieces of furniture (as a design writer, I should reprezzzent), however, I am no closer to affording the licensed miniature version of, say, the above Tulip chair by Saarinen (5.25 inches high, $220) than I am to affording the full-size seat (around $1200). Somewhere, a Geppetto doppelganger over at Vitra is making a fortune by shrinking iconic pieces by Eames, Mies van der Rohe and Ron Arad down to Barbie size. ‘Bout time someone gave that old Malibu Beach House a makeover. —LML
