Zig Zag Shelving
Patie over at Minisx2 on Etsy is working away creating her miniature marvels in 1:12. You may have seen her work elsewhere and I am pleased to own one of her lovely shelving pieces, a zig zag midcentury shelf with sliding doors.
The piece had a bumpy ride, and despite its secure packaging, it arrived with the top raised level broken off. Patie is sending a new one, but I told her I might not be able to wait! The shelf is so beautiful that you probably would not even notice the flaw!
It's exciting to have more artisans creating in the modern realm, and even seeing some 1:1 people seduced by 1:12. Have you read about Mini Modern's new house by John Bui, who creates mod pod cat retreats? CB2 got into the act with its petite Neville House, and who knows what will come of their new partnership with the Novogratz design team! Perhaps we should start petitioning them now...hmmm....
