Brinca Dada - Emerson House

Are you kidding me!?!? Have you seen this modern and eco-friendly dollhouse by Brinca Dada? Of course you have, it was all the buzz last month, but that's what I get for tuning out for the past few months. CallSmall blogged a great post with links to all of the other posts on this house plus more information from one of the heads of the company, Doug Rollins read more here.

The Emerson House by Brinca Dada will be available in June 2010. They are currently taking pre-orders for $299!

Description from their website
"Newly listed, the Emerson House is the perfect home for the modern family. The home has six rooms including a living room, kitchen, library/office, master bedroom, bathroom and child's bedroom. With its large, open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows, the Emerson House enjoys year-round sunlight. The modern house features many extras including mitered-glass corners, two fireplaces, sliding glass doors, solar panels, and recessed LED lights. Finally, the house is easy on the environment with only non-toxic and lead-free wood stains and paints."

Brinca Dada also has a line of living room furniture that will be coming this spring. I am in love with their chairs and couch.

"A beautiful house deserves beautiful furniture. This living room set creates the perfect atmosphere for entertaining guests, reading a good book or relaxing with family. The set features eleven pieces including TV console, lamps, HD television, sofa, chairs, coffee table, console, side table and rug. Thank heavens for little luxuries."

D'oh! thanks CallSmall. I seriously picked the wrong months to take a break. I can't believe I missed all the buzz. Thanks for the link, I added to post. If this venture goes well, I'm betting 1:12 may be in the works for adult collectors. I mean at least give us that chair in 1:12!!!

This house simply ROCKS! As a bachelor, I like living in a house that is edgy and very ME. Houses like this deserve a handsome homeowner like me. LOL! ;P

I had a bad experience with Brinca Dada over the holiday and I just wanted to alert people. I had ordered the Emerson house (now discontinued). It arrived severely damaged--it looked like someone had gotten through half the assembly and taken it apart in frustration. I informed the company, they offered to send a new one and never did. Subsequent emails to the company never got a response. Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend ordering from Brinca Dada even though the homes are lovely.

I'm sorry for your bad experience. That must have been frustrating to open a severely damaged house. I wouldn't give up, which email are you contacting? They seem to be on facebook, you could post there asking them to follow up with your complaint.

The first run of Emersons was sold off at a huge discounted price because of the production issues with the company the used to build the houses. My guess is they sent you a returned one by mistake instead of new one. They may be out of the first run discontinued and discounted ones by now, but its too bad you're not getting any response. I would keep trying because I think the houses are really great and the people I've met at the company are really nice. The new company building the dollhouse kits are doing a much better job on the production end the quality of the houses has improved.

I didn't see a phone number online, but I'm surprised they didn't have one on the invoice. It sounds like it has not been easy for you to get in touch with them.

Good luck, I hope you get your replacement house.
