Hat tip to Michael Uvanni of Michael J. Uvanni Interiors in Rome, N.Y., who pointed us to this video on the making of the Christopher Guy Doll’s House for its window display in London’s Design Centre Chelsea Harbour.
Sixteen craftspeople worked full time on the miniature London townhouse for two months, creating 130 furniture pieces “all by hand and with the same skills they use daily to create the CG creations.”
The luxury home furnishings maker partnered with artisans from high-end resources, such as Fromental, Samuel & Sons and more to add even more special touches, such as handpainted and embroidered wallpapers, a miniature castiron standalone tub, drapes, sheers, silk bedding, toys and other frills.
“As the house came to life it mirrored the Christopher Guy dream — to create homes of wonder and joy for all,” the narrator concludes.
“Only one company could accomplish this and that is Christopher Guy,” Uvanni told Home News Now. “It only validates the loss our industry incurred by his passing.”
