Karpen Horn Chairs

Stylish, sleek and just a little bit “over the top”, these curvaceous thrones from the 1950’s are making a miniature come back!

The horn chair has been a long time favorite of mine but I have always put the design on a back burner, just trying to figure out how to make these in 1:6 scale.  At last, the time has come !

I am pleased to present : The Karpen Horn Chair !

From what I’ve researched, the original (full scale) Karpen Horn chairs are rare and hard to come by.  When found, they can command hundreds of dollars on the MCM market.

Looking at it, I would not have guessed this chair to be an early 50’s design, but more so of the 1960’s with its curves and tapered legs.  A tribute to the idea that the Karpen Bros. were well ahead of their time as far as furniture design and style .

My take on the Karpen Horn Chairs are available today in both Red Coral w/patterned seat cushion OR Antique White with white seat cushion.

Each miniature Karpen Horn Chair requires time and patience to execute. Each is hand crafted and upholstered and feature gold, hand painted leg tips.

This chair is better suited to the longer legged 12+” fashion doll because of the depth of the seat.

CREDENZA 

Setting a certain mid-century tone in rooms these days, is the use of a side board or credenza.  I have styled one similar to a vintage credenza that goes perfectly with the Karpen Horn Chair !

“Acryluxe” – Display Boxes

Hello Everyone –

Sometimes the details are all in the presentation !

You may recall the debut of  My Acryluxe chairs  from February 2015.  In my quest to bring you new and exciting items, I ‘ve created these display boxes that I feel bring another dimension to your doll collecting experience!  Each one is hand-made by Me.

The boxes resemble a little house and are my interpretation of packaging originally used to sell Barbie chairs in the 1960’s.  The display features one of my “Acryluxe” chairs in gold metallic with silver glitter cushions, and an accessory lamp.

Display boxes have an unattached, lift off top (roof) for easy access to the interior.  The “Acryluxe” chair  and accessory lamp are removable.   Inside, a stationary “dresser” (paperboard) provides space to place the lamp.

Approximate height (roof top on)  – 14.5″  .   Each box is hand-made and may have slight inclusions or differences, making each, a one of a kind.

Limited!  3- Cloudless Blue      1 – Antique White

Only 1 left ! –  Cloudless Blue

Exterior of each have colorful floral lace decoupage  on all sides.

SOLD OUT !

For availability and to purchase, please email me at :   welcomehome@maryannroy.com
