Ma Petite Chaise (No. 8)

Le Corbusier petit modèle

Created for the 1929 Lifestyle Exhibition in Paris, the Le Corbusier armchair is compact with highly dense seating and a cube shaped body with a cut out for seating. Its smaller size makes it the perfect seating where space is limited.

  It has a matching 3-seater sofa for a complete and sophisticated living room solution. 
My 1:6 scale chair is part of Horsman’s Urban Environment. The chair and sofa come in either black or white. I purchased the white set in 2010 for $75/chair and $95/sofa from MFD. (As a side note, if you are interested in Horsman’s 1:6 scale furniture, their tubular chair (Wassily Chair) is woefully out of scale, imho).

…grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

The Barbie Look by Bill Greening

Debuting early 2013 are “The Barbie Look” dolls and accessory packs by Bill Greening. Greening is a principal designer for Mattel (he created the Barbie Basics).

Barbie Look Shopper Doll No. 1 is Caucasian and Doll No. 2 is AA. The four fashion accessory packs are Tea Party, Golf, Poolside and Red Carpet.


Suggested Retail for dolls: $29.99
Suggested Retail for accessory packs: $24.99

Doll No. 2 is my favorite and an absolute must have. She is sleek and looks to be copping serious diva attitude.

My other absolute must have is the Tea Party Accessory Pack. The dress is light and airy, belted at the waist with a full skirt and very flattering sleeveless wrap bodice. A fascinator, no less, compliments the dress.

But wait! That’s not all. Look at the adorable little tea set!

Anyone for tea?
