Lundby architect-designed dollhouses have been around since 1947 and the interiors have been repeatedly redesigned over the years, in order to keep up with the very latest in interior design. I have lingered many times over the Stockholm Dolls House, which is beautifully featured in a large clear case in my local toy shop.
Awareness of the design world is what sets Lundby products apart from many others. Modern artwork, miniature versions of Taschen art books, plasma televisions, spa baths and tiny replica contemporary furniture brilliantly complement the boxy architecture that echoes some of Australia’s own Harry Seidler’s work. This is just the kind of house my husband and I have wanted for years, however, living in Sydney’s Inner West has put that wish firmly in pipe dream territory. For those of us entrenched in Federation abodes, here’s a way to introduce a little ‘mid-century with a modern twist’ into your home.
Designed exclusively in Sweden, the Stockholm house has been created to be the ultimate leisure home with its mosaic patterened pull-out pool, pet deck, hot tub on the party roof and many lush furnishings for reading and play.
The house has floor-to-ceiling windows that retract conveniently for play and there are even two working terrace lights to light it up at night.
The Stockholm dollhouse is $199.95 and can be bought directly from Lundby, where you’ll also find an assortment of accessory packs as well as other dollhouses in their range.
