Stroll room by room through this uniquely decorated French country mansion designed to resemble a luxurious summer estate. Château du Bois was handmade by Mark Turpin in Southern California over a six year period. Mark envisioned and created the pipe organ configuration within the glass atrium, and he discovered the colorful stained glass window replica at the Metropolitan Museum gift shop in New York City. The Red Salon fireplace mantle was purchased at a favorite miniatures shop in San Francisco. Mark found the Rose Suite bedroom rug at the Whitehall mansion and museum shop in Palm Beach, Florida. The various fabric wall coverings were also purchased in Palm Beach. Following its grand opening, Château du Bois was showcased at the Laguna Niguel Design Center and at a local gift shop in Laguna Beach, California.

Château du Bois dimensions: 60" wide, 24" deep, 48" high; 1:12 scale. Sold.
