Heart ChairJust in time for Valentine’s Day, Haute Doll introduces its new exclusive by Horsman Ltd., the modern-style “Heart Chair” perfect for 16-inch fashion dolls. The design was inspired by Verner Panton’s 1959 full-scale contemporary chair design.

Horsman design director Dorinda Balanecki said that when she saw the heart chair for the first time, “I knew it had to be made for Vita. Although our chairs are inspired by Panton, there is a lot of work that goes into making the chair look correct and getting it in the perfect scale to fit the dolls.” Balanecki, who studied interior design with a focus on furniture design and making, said “I have always wanted to be a furniture-design maker, and now Horsman has made my dreams come true.”

The “Heart Chair” for 16-inch dolls measures 8 ¾ inches tall by 9 ½ inches wide at its tallest and widest points. The chair is part of a 145-piece limited edition and is available in time for Valentine’s Day in black and red. The chair fabric is made of a soft jersey material, and the back and seat are foam-padded. The “Heart Chair” is available for sale at shop.dollsmagazine.com for $79 plus shipping and handling.
