The Doll's House – 1879 is based on Henrik Ibsens play, published that year. Ibsen described Nora and Torvald Helmer's home as "furnished comfortably and tastefully, but not extravagantly". But even thought the narrative is Ibsen's play, we have a different purpose in displaying this home. We will present the late 19th century bourgeois home as a female sphere in a male world, with the front stage where the master and the mistress entertained guests and the back stage where the servants worked and the children usually were hidden way. We also want to show that the privacy and intimacy of the bourgeois home is an important part of the development of a modern home
