Thorne Miniature Rooms (Art Institute of Chicago)

Recommended
The 68 charming rooms in this unique, internationally-renowned collection display a gamut of interior decorative styles ranging from 13C Europe to 20C America. Mrs. James Ward Thorne's childhood interest in miniature decorative objects grew into an ongoing fascination with architecture and history, and she comissioned skilled craftsmen to create the rooms at a scale of 1 inch to 1 foot. Extremely detailed and imaginative, the rooms are displayed chronologically.
