Designers often share a passion for miniatures and models, so it didn't come as a surprise that the brink dada dollhouse on display was popular amongst ICFF attendees. But besides the stylish modernist dollhouse decor and architectural details, the mini-sized homes solar powered lighting garnered plenty of interest.
The Emerson House is a 3:4 scale house for a well-heeled family of four…umm…dolls which we previewed shortly ago:
The home has six rooms including a living room, kitchen, library/office, master bedroom, bathroom and child's bedroom. With its large, open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows, the Emerson House enjoys year-round sunlight. The modern house features many extras including mitered-glass corners, two fireplaces, sliding glass doors, solar panels, and recessed LED lights. Finally, the house is easy on the environment with only non-toxic and lead-free wood stains and paints.
We initially thought the solar panels on the rooftop were just graphical. But the $299 dollhouse is indeed powered by light, with the solar system brightly illuminating a home likely much nicer than 99% of the full-size, real life homes out there. And don't forget to furnish your dream home with matching furnishings designed specifically for the Emerson House.
brink dada is accepting pre-orders for June delivery now at their website. But like the real-life equivalent, we can't even really afford this solar powered home either and will just have to settle for the open house tour were fortunate enough to partake in.
