Designers Create Their “Dream Room” in a Box at The V&A Museum of Childhood


As part of a doll house themed exhibition called Small Stories: At Home in a Doll’s House at the V&A Museum of Children in London, 19 designers were commissioned to create their “dream room” inside a 12 inch wooden box.


The resulting rooms were certainly charming, including scenes such as Katie Christianson’s “I Always Dreamed of an Underwater Aquarium Bathroom” or Orly Orbach’s “Wilderness Dreams.”


Some of them were even a little enigmatic, like Paul Priestman’s “The Longest Party Table in the World.”

To see more of the little rooms created by other designers, as well as the rest of the doll houses in the exhibition, be sure to stop into the V&A Museum of Childhood between the 13th of December 2014 and the 6th of September 2015!
