We ♥ the miniature decor dioramas in the basement of the Art Institute. In a building filled with so many gorgeous things vying for our visual attention, we still usually end up squeezing in at least a quick peek at the Thorne Miniature Rooms. We've often wondered if they are a not so guilty pleasure for other design junkies...More photos of our favorite rooms below the jump...
Please excuse the less than stellar photos, the combination of low light and glass fronted dioramas didn't do much for our photography results.
We suggest you go see them for yourself to fully appreciate their teeny tiny fantastic-ness.
