This year’s NAME Day event is “BEDROOM – PART III: Desk and Chair.” Plans for the armoire are provided in various scales in the July/August 2018 issue of the NAME Gazette. Kits in various scales will be available. The desk and chair have been designed to coordinate with the bedroom furniture from previous NAME Days. This is the final piece for the bedroom.
