Bennett House by brinca dada is an oasis in the sea of glitzy toy houses. Heavily influenced by the De Stijl movement of the early 20th century, it emphasizes lines, squares and rectangles in asymmetrical patterns while minimizing color. Fans of Rietveld’s Schröder House will recognize another influence. Architect Tim Boyle explains how Bennett House breaks out of the townhouse genre: “Townhouses are typically a stack of floors with a few windows on each floor, and no inside/outside relationship. I prefer architecture that reveals structure and engineering, hence windows extend past floors to show the weight and thickness of the structure."
Bennett House is more than just a pretty facade--its clever design and use of space invites play whether open or closed. The townhouse features a two-story living room, elevator, roof top pool and glass rail balconies in both the master bedroom and children’s bedroom. And Bennett House is made of CARB-certified woods and non-toxic, lead-free paints and stains, so it is easy on the environment.
The Maison Furniture Collection from brinca dada is the perfect complement to both Edward House and Bennett House. The line's clean and sophisticated aesthetic mixes classic modern design with contemporary “in fashion” highlights. In the words of designer Cecilia Reboursin, “The key was to work on every detail to add an extra dimension of authenticity to the line. We used American black walnut as a common thread, giving a contemporary feel to each room. We then added color as accents, but also as an attraction to children's sensibilities.”
The Maison Furniture Collection - Complete Set is comprised of 40 different pieces and offers furnishings for seven rooms, plus two sets of accessories. All furniture elements are made from high-quality woods and fabrics and are fashioned with non-toxic, lead-free stains and paints.

The average New York City home may not have floor-to-ceiling windows, solar panels, and a spacious, open floor plan, but NYC-based dollhouse design firm Brinca Dada — from the Brazilian “brincadeira,” which means “game” or “plaything” — doesn't think your little one's dollhouse has to follow suit. Miniature furniture is just as sleek, crafted for tiny hands, but with parents' design sensibilities in mind. Finally, children's toys you don't mind leaving out on the living room floor.
