For a course I took in the history of furniture each student had to make a chair file which documented the history of the chair from Greece and Rome to the present day. That made me very interested in various reproductions of traditional and contemporary chair design. In my home I have many full-sized examples, beginning with my dining chairs. But today I want to share my doll-sized chairs.
Here are several of my doll-size chairs:
Queen Anne style with cabriole legs and pad feet.
Unfinished ladder-back chair. It could do with a nice stain or paint color.
Windsor chair with its scooped-out saddle seat.
Woven Asian style arm chair
Another woven arm chair and matching stool, useful as a side table.
Blue metal outdoor chair
I see the miniature chairs as sculptural elements, as well as seating for my dolls and bears at Christmas time. So I often display them alone. However, one day I noticed that the doll on the guestroom bed was missing. Then I saw that my young niece had taken the doll and placed her in the Queen Anne chair in my bedroom!
Do you display your doll chairs alone or always with a doll?
