Such pavilions, which are usually called "hermitages", were quite in fashion in the XVIII century. They were used for recreation and dining and located in the remotest parts of parks. In order that servants do not
prevent owners of mansions from free communication, the pavilions normally had special mechanisms making the tables move. The hermitage of Tsarskoye Selo, Saint-Petersburg, was especially posh.
What did an ordinary Soviet living room look like back in the 70s? The living room belonging to some granny. One Russian girl did a great job to show you how it looked. Her miniature project, made in 1:12 scale, is very impressive. The
author used foam board, balsa, veneer, adhesive tape, LEDs, natural silk, bamboo, glass, mirrors, acrylic paints, wire, leather, various caps and cans... And only the sewing machine was store-bought. The details are awesome!
