A very nice colleague at work gave me this lovely little chair for my birthday in April, having found it in a thrift shop. I loved its mid-century design, and since I have never seen this chair anywhere else, I believe it may have been made by hand by a loving father (or mother). But for a long time I had no idea for a scene for it, until I was in Oslo this summer and found a sheet of paper I immediately fell in love with :-) It reminds me of Norwegian mid-century murals and tapestries, and I thought the slightly scaled down version would make a perfect background wall for the chair.
I love the repeating sail and wave pattern and TreeFeathers' book "A history of the Vikings" fits nicely in with this colourful theme.
I'm not the only one who has been inspired by Oese's inventive use of Ikea's Lekman box as a roombox, but this is my first scene in it. I love the light through the back wall.
Perfect for displaying glassware!
Here the sun is set and the room is only lit by the cold street light.
UPDATE: As both The Shopping Sherpa and Rebecca was kind enough to inform me, the chair is made in the former Czechoslovakia. And Rebecca adds that the maker is Tofa, in her blog I found they produced dollhouse furniture in the 60s and 70s. You can see the chair with more furniture from the same maker on their blogs here (TSS) and here (Rebecca)
Many thanks to you both!
