This is my first doll house/miniature and I’m pretty pleased how it’s turned out so far. I still have some fine tuning on the outside and need to start the wood floors.

Outstanding job so far, Graham.  I can't wait to see what you do to the furniture!

The furniture is turning into a problem. I have a 1:12 chair and couch but they overwhelm the room. Anyone have a good place to purchase furniture?

I'm no help; I got so frustrated that I make mine.

Graham,

The House of Miniature kits are a nice 'petite' 1/12 scale. Have you tried them? You can buy them on ebay  https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1311&_nkw=house+of+miniatures+furniture+kits&_sacat=0

You can customize them easily.

I run into this problem all the time. I imagine a certain layout and then the piece overwhelms the room.

What about distressing some furniture pieces for it? You could look for “lots” on eBay and then repaint, strip or distress upholstery, etc. I don’t know exactly what your plan is, but you could use lots of mismatched pieces too.

I really like what you are doing with this build.

The other thing would be to only put a very few pieces of furniture in it. An old sink and refrigerator in the kitchen, a chair and small table in the living room, etc.

I think that’s what I’m going to end up doing. Sort of give it that (somebody started moving) out look but didn’t quite finish the job.

Or like passers-through just camping out in an abandoned house.
