A Place Imagined was founded in 2011 by Holly Gomez, a mom with a background in architecture. Holly has always had a passion for designing tiny spaces that encourage self-expression and open ended play. After several years of designing large scale “grownup” buildings, she began designing children’s play spaces.
The business started off with outdoor playhouse plans for DIY’ers and now also includes Children’s product design. In 2013 A Place Imagined launched its first product, the original patented Chalkboard Playhouse. In 2016 it was clear that the two divisions while similar needed separate places to thrive. The Playhouse Planner was created to serve as a resource for anyone interested in building a playhouse. In 2018 the first dollhouse line was launched.
Exciting things are in the works! We have been super busy behind the scenes getting ready for a new product launch as well as reworking our production methods for the Original Chalkboard Playhouse. So, stay tuned or better yet subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when new products are released.
