about minimodernistas

Hello and welcome to minimodernistas’ website and store featuring truly modern, mid-century and contemporary dollhouse furnishings.

My name is Doris Nathanson and I am the designer, builder and owner of minimodernistas.  My work is high quality, hand crafted and inspired by Eames, Saarinen, Nelson and Pfister, to name only a few of the great designers I admire. I began building miniatures as a child, and then moved on to drawing floor plans, elevations and building miniatures for room settings. In art school, my main interest was always textiles and 3-dimentional projects, an interest that continues to grow today. These passions ultimately resulted in my minimodernistas work and this website.

For those of you who are true modernists, I hope you’ll find here just the item you have long been searching for. And for those of you who are collectors, but new to the modern miniatures movement, I hope you’ll find minimodernistas a refreshing change.  

As you browse the site, you’ll find minimodernistas pieces in 1:12, 1:18 and 1:6 scales that are available in a variety of colors, textures and styles to suit your modern miniature environment or collection. Each miniature is designed to coordinate with many of my other pieces, affording you the opportunity to turn on your creativity and enjoy all the choices available to you.


Build a room around one of our rugs, throw lots of pillows in all kinds of patterns on the Long&Low Sectional or hang the Ribbon Lamp in an unexpected place. Maybe you’ll carve out a special space with a room divider, use the Sling Chair & Ottoman indoors or out, or place the 3 Sphere Lamp on the ceiling instead of the floor. It’s up to you.  Enjoy!


Best Wishes,

Doris Nathanson
