Minis in Denver

I went up to Denver to visit a miniatures expo, mini museum and a modernism expo and there's plenty of inspiring visual goodies to share (enough for four posts!)

First up is the 35th Annual Fall Show & Sale hosted by the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys.


There wasn't a lot of smaller scales, but there was this booth of 1:48 scale stores and assorted items.


Victorian is still the dominate theme among the larger scales, but there is also a lot of southwestern and with today's kilim theme in mid-century inspired rooms, it would be very easy to take items like these and create a trendy modern mini living room.

As a graphic designer, I loved these produce crates and can see them in an industrial chic office, perhaps as a makeshift desk or assembled together for a bookshelf.


On the 21th check back with this blog for an article on iconic modern design in 1:48 scale and on the 28th check back for the second post from the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys.
