Discover Benelux & France | Design feature April, 2015  



The LILIANE Dolls Villa is much more than a normal doll house. The Villa is specially designed for dolls that are one foot tall – children’s favourite dolls – making it unique in the world and popular among children.


The open design of the Villa encourages interaction and free play: up to six children can use it at the same time. Apart from families, the Villa is also a much-loved item at day care centres and primary schools not just in the Netherlands, but across Europe.


Apart from play, there are other interesting applications. Currently universities in the Netherlands and Poland are researching how play therapists, child psychiatrists and psychologists can use the Villa to help children who suffer from trauma.


Designer Liliane Limpens says: “In the words of the Dutch consul-general Guido Tielman in Chongqing, China, the Dolls Villa is ‘the Bentley among the world’s dolls houses!’”

The largest of the design doll houses is the Liliane Dolls Villa, for five to six children, measured 120x62x128 cm, is made of modified birch plywood and stainless steel.


The Dutch designer Liliane Limpens - a former editor of a magazine of art - created the Dolls Villa, "a home for the children of the children", motivated by giving them a dream haven. "It had to be top quality, that it is an exclusive, private domain, just for your favorite dolls, which has its own rules and freedom", explains and adds that the dolls and stuffed animals play an important role in children's learning about attachment and trust.


The Dolls Villa’s (www.liliane.eu) measured 1.20 m high, are made from birch wood and can be moved thanks to the wheels under their base. They come fully furnished and there are two models: one for a group of four to six children and one villa for two to three children.

La diseñadora holandesa Liliane Limpens –ex editora de una revista de arte– creó Dolls Villa, “una casa para los niños de los niños”, motivada por darles un refugio soñado. “Tenía que ser de primera calidad, para que fuera un dominio exclusivo, privado, solo para sus muñecas favoritas y donde hubiera sus propias normas y libertades”, explica y agrega que las muñecas y peluches cumplen un papel importante en el aprendizaje de los niños en el apego y la confianza.

Bienvenida a casa, muñeca  

„Otro histórico de la arquitectura disponible a pequeña gran escala es Arne Jacobsen. La danesa Minimii ha replicado la casa del arquitecto en Charlottenlund y, cómo no, la silla Cisne. Su intención es que los padres también jueguen con las miniaturas, por eso han lanzado la casa en formato MiiBox, que se cuelga en la pared como un joyero. Otra madre que reaccionó con creatividad ante la falta de oferta de casas hipsters para sus hijos es Liliane Limpens.


„Mientras Minii y Minio están pensadas para las medidas de Barbie y otras fashion dolls, las de Liliane son aptas para muñecas grandes.”

Psychiatrists in Warsaw 16 July 2014:  

“We are glad to get to know you and your concept. We believe that conducting the international research-project ‘Dolls Villa and video-registration’ may lead to increased efficacy of therapeutic work with children. We ourselves also use various forms of play, also including work with doll houses. It seems that the standarization may enhance the quality of such work. We are waiting for further information on the progress of preparations and we are willing to participate in any stage."

Among the world's dolls houses  



Guido Tielman, Dutch consul-general in the economically expanding city of Chongqing [31 million inhabitants], selected LILIANE BV from among approximately 200 Dutch international enterprises as the one with the greatest sales potential in China by far: “I am very impressed by the Dolls Villa.” Tielman is sounding out the potential of bringing the LILIANE Dolls Villa to the children of China at the Wereldveroveraars conference for conquerors of the world on 13 May 2014.


Tielman: “The Dolls Villa has tremendous sales potential in China. Here’s an anecdote to illustrate this. I live in a hotel in Chongqing. I recently passed by a wedding reception in the hotel. Looking outside, I noticed that there were ten Ferraris at the hotel car park! What I want to say is that there are many people in China nowadays with serious money. My British colleague sells Bentleys and he told me that he sold eighty Bentleys in just four years’ time.”


“This is the Bentley! [pointing to the dolls villa on the screen in the conference hall] The Dutch Dolls Villa is the Bentley among the world’s dolls houses. The Chinese are very status-oriented. If you, as a parent, are able to buy a LILIANE Dolls Villa, you are a good parent.”


“Because of the one-child policy, parents only want the very best for their child. The last [marketing] element is that the Chinese wish to educate their child to the highest possible level and give it the best possible upbringing. Parents are anticipating on the importance of developing a child’s creative potential. The Dolls Villa can contribute to this ideal.”



'Wereldveroveraars' is the Netherlands International entrepreneurial network.

A to Z Designs for Kids & Kidults


LILIANE Dolls Villa could be a dream house for children, as well as for adults with an eye for quality.


Measuring 1.28 metres tall on metal castors with brake systems, the three-storey playhouse exhibits meticulous attention to details from its design through to the materials it employs.


Open on four sides with perforated stainless steel roofs, the birch plywood structure reveals a kitchen counter and a catelogue of wood furniture next to functional wall mirror and aluminium utensils in seven rooms connected by two spiral staircases.


The unblemished nature of wood has been consciously retained for a genuine connection between children and products of the earth.


LILIANE BV is a sustainable-living furniture brand for dolls up to 30cm. LILIANE BV's products are built not only for fun but also with educational purpose. Targeting the three to ten age group, they create interaction that stimulates spontaneous practices of social skills. The use of materials also brings in the concept of sustainabillity for the kids at young age. Its value is as well-recognised in the field of child as women psychotherapy in the Netherlands.

Chic Contemporary Doll House


The Dutch LILIANE Dolls Villa Pimps Out Toy Homes! If there was ever a home fit for a doll, it'd have to be the Dolls Villa by Liliane Limpens.


The Dolls Villa is a contemporary doll house that looks a lot like the homes most people today would want to live in. The entire model is sustainably built and is constructed mostly from wood that gives it an earthy, organic look. The interior features just about everything a normal home would have such as a sink, beds, bathroom and even a perforated stainless steel roof that brings a nice contrast to the wooden aesthetic. The villa has three floors, each of which have been given its own personality by Limpens.


If there was ever such a thing as comfortable living for toys, this is it.
