Paper Dolls for Grown Ups

fashion platesBy Jennifer B. Davis

When I was a girl, I had an extensive collection of paper doll books. I loved playing with them and I bought a few to collect. Like the Princess Diana one I still own and another of Nancy Reagan that I got on a trip to Washington D.C. with a school group. Years before that, I had a Fashion Plate toy (Tomy brand) that allowed you to create your own paper doll designs, complete with rub-on crayon patterns. I am sure I am not alone in these childhood memories. In fact, I suspect that these toys designed to inspire creativity have led many people to careers in fashion design, graphic arts, or interior architecture, including many of the designers and architects with whom we and our authorized dealers closely work.

With the launch of the new Runco Vistage™ ultra-thin displays and the related FinishPalette™ options, I am reminded again how fun it is to accessorize! Like those paper dolls that we used to play with, the options for customization and personalization are extravagant! You need not look any further than the FinishPalette catalog to see the literally hundreds of options available. If you don’t find what you need, we also offer custom hand-painted murals, leather or wool felt sculpture, color-matched paint, and a host of truly custom options for a one-of-a-kind piece of art in your home.

To get you in the spirit and to illustrate my point, try out your very own “paper doll” version of the Vistage V-63HD showing just a few of the myriad of designer options available. Enjoy!
