Note: I did not receive compensation from PRD Miniatures for this post. I highlight products that I love and I endorse designers I admire because talent deserves a pedestal, humble as this site’s pedestal may be.
Every once in a while, I like to highlight artisans I find as I build my mini homes. This week, it’s Paris Renfroe of PRD Miniatures, who I discovered through Modern Mini Dollhouses a few months ago. I think I spent two hours going through his collection on my first visit, one of many. I’ve since incorporated Paris’ furniture and accessories in three of my projects, and I wanted to share with you a few of my purchases.
I couldn’t resist this graffiti rug and hammered gold side table to complete the Beautiful Bride bridal salon. I love the modern rug juxtaposed with the traditional interior of the shop.
This is the matching island. The color felt vintage, but the piece itself was modern. If the Westville were my real house, I’d choose this aesthetic for the remodel because it updates the kitchen, while respecting the period of the house.
Originally, I bought the Egg Chair for the Westville, but then, I decided…
You can find a ton of wonderful accessories on the PRD Web site. Here is a wheat grass bowl. If you prefer a different container, you’re in luck, it comes in several different configurations.
One last, but important, note before ordering from PRD Miniatures. On the Web site, you’ll notice “Quick Ship Furniture” and “Quick Ship Accessories.” As is says, these items are ready to go and you’ll get them in a week or two (at least that was true as of mid-2021). But there are so many wonderful items that are not quick ship that it’s easy to get carried away. These items will take longer to arrive. If time is of the essence, I recommend reaching out to Paris for details before you order. He’s very responsive to inquires.
Also note, after ordering, Paris sometimes reaches out to offer an item in colors not pictured on the site, as well as suggestions for products that he hasn’t had time to list. If you want something a little more “custom,” just ask, because Paris can probably help you.
When it comes to handmade work, you may pay more and it may take longer to accommodate an order, but beautiful things are worth the wait.
