The Writer’s Sanctuary

The Ferd Sobol Editions
Invites you to step into the Writer’s Sanctuary in 1/12th scale

Everyone deserves a lovely place to sit and write, a novel or perhaps a love letter.  This room would be warm and inviting with natural light, soft colors and beautiful things to let the eye rest upon while awaiting the muse. Often the calm of such a place is difficult to obtain in full size, but in 1/12th scale the mind and imagination meet in a deliberate and delightful accord. Welcome to our version of the timeless writer’s sanctuary.

Ferd’s latest edition is The Federal Credenza. It is a perfect piece to be used as a sideboard or as a buffet. It features a gorgeous oval inlay of dark and light woods and hand carved floral motifs with Greek Key design on the edges. The six drawers afford ample storage for everything from silverware to completed manuscripts. In the recessed window niches are his Pedestal Stands displaying plants.

The Breakfront is a truly striking edition and in every way it lives up to the reputation of The Workshop Wizard. It will comfortably hold silver, china or as shown here, it may display a treasured library. Among the many extras Ferd has bestowed upon this piece are the radial hand caned panels in the lower doors, and an amazingly delicate scrolled bonnet. It is crowned with three finials including his renowned open flame finial in the center. There is a sliding tambour door for safeguarding notes, ideas and tools of the trade. We’ve been told that the slide out desktop is every writer’s dream.

If the writer in you needs a spot of solace, consider creating a miniature sanctuary where you are inspired, find motivation and the muse is always welcomed. Delight your eyes by checking out the blog for even more from The Workshop Wizard.
