The Humble Dolls’ House Has Just Had a Makeover

Dragons of Walton Street Admin July 29, 2010

Orders of this luxurious Georgian dolls' house from Knightsbridge children's emporium Dragons of Walton Street are literally going through the roof with parents tasking the store's interior designers with providing that unique finish.

Complete with electricity, bespoke furnishings and sumptuous fabrics, it's no wonder this fairytale mansion is fast becoming a best-seller.

Dragons MD Lucinda Croft said the orders were coming in thick and fast.

"A dolls' house sums up the magic and innocence of childhood," said the mum of two. "It encourages children to use their imagination and allows parents to get carried away in the nostalgia."

But the stakes are being raised with increasing numbers of customers asking for each house to be tailor-made.

Lucinda adds: "We have designed bedrooms and nurseries for a whole host of celebrities and international royalty, including Princes William and Harry. It is the attention to detail that clients love, for example, one child loved animals, so we made a conservatory of animals for her including real hay for the ‘pretend' rabbit. Another little girl loved cheese, so we sourced beautiful miniature cheese for her kitchen. I could go on but I am busy planning a stable and a mini shop too!

"Our order book is growing by the week and we are delighted with its success."

Dragons of Walton Street produces the finest hand-painted furniture in the world, with stores in London and Moscow and a further outlet planned to open in Dubai at the end of the year.
