I was absolutely thrilled to learn that brinca dada of New York has created a modern dollhouse, inspired by Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann Desert House and the Cooper residence designed by A. Quincy Jones.
The Emerson House By Brinca Dada
The Emerson House, a stunning modern wood and acrylic glass dollhouse will soon be on the market for $299.

Also offered by brinca dada will be mid-century modern livingroom furnishings and a wooden articulated family.
Now for all the pictures and specs.
Inspired by the flat roofs and organic flow of Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann Desert House and the ultra-modern stone, glass, and steel home that A. Quincy Jones designed for Gary Cooper, brinca dada’s Emerson House incorporates beautiful design and exciting play patterns while elevating the traditional toy dollhouse design.
Emerson House features many distinguishing architectural features like glass corners, minimalist cut stone fireplaces, scored hardwood floors and recessed lights (LED, powered by solar panels).
The home has six rooms including a living room, kitchen, library/office, master bedroom, bathroom and child’s bedroom. With its large, open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows, the Emerson House enjoys year-round sunlight.
Made of wood (birch and others) and acrylic glass, it measures 18″H x 21″W x 30″L and is built at 3/4″ scale. All stain and paints are non-toxic and lead free.

Whereas once modern dollhouses were virtually impossible to find, the modern dollhouse is becoming a popular trend. This is the seventh modern architectural miniature about which I’ve written.
