Super Scandinavian modern design for kids. Without the plane ticket to Scandinavia.

Oh, Internet, how I love thee. Chic NYC boutiques await me on my laptop, 24/7 even when I’m nowhere near. And my latest online thrill is a children’s shop stocked to brimming with gorgeous Scandinavian style. Ja, takk! (Yes, please!) {Don’t miss an exclusive discount for CMP readers after the jump!} Recently, I’ve been obsessed by the imaginative offerings over at Modernmini. This kids’ shop is made up of mostly Scandinavian brands, all of which are pretty spectacular, especially if you love incorporating modern design into your decor. This is a place to find items that serve a functional purpose and...

Dream a little dream of your baby (finally) asleep in a cozy bassinet

With my first two kids, the bassinet was a bedside fixture for at least the first month or two after their respective arrivals. Clunky and awkward, it was not exactly a charmer — and my wakeful babies didn’t seem too impressed, either. This time around, I’m trading up.   I’m betting the Babyhome Dream will create a luxe enough sleeping environment for the baby to convince him/her sleep through the night. It could happen, right? Dream, by the genius designers at Babyhome, can be used as a bedside bassinet, a travel cot, or a convenient, comfy place for a napping baby...

The Novogratz family takes us to Brazil. And you’re invited.

The prolific designers and TV faves Bob and Courtney Novogratz are taking their small CB2 home collection to new places. Specifically Brazil. And I want to go.  The new Novogratz Brasil collection for CB2, just launched this month, is such a funy, cheery way to brighten up your/my decidedly North American pad, at the decent prices and quality CB2 is known for. I’m loving pieces like a duo-toned credenza, a swing chair that makes me pine for a deck, and a bright fuschia punched-metal coffee table that might not be so great for homework, but is perfect for a...

The coolest dollhouse for kids isn’t a dollhouse at all

With a house full of girls, you can bet that I’ve seen and owned my fair share of dollhouse toys, all of which have been some of my kids’ favorite gifts from us. Or uh, Santa Claus. But for as many version of the traditional dollhouse toy that I’ve seen, none can compete with this rug that I’m sure would get tons of playtime for many years. The Playhouse 3D carpets are the brainchild of a mom in Turkey who wanted to encourage outside-of-the-box creative play in her own kids, and wow, are these brilliant! Each completely handmade 3...

Letting your kid draw on the furniture

Every once in a while, my toddler and I will be walking through our house when he stops, points, and says his sister’s name. Why? Because she has so kindly written it or drawn a picture in that very spot. On the wall. Or the door. Or the kitchen cupboard. It seems it’s time for her artistic self to spread her wings and, you know, draw on some paper, or something. Which is where CMP favorite, P’kolino, comes in. The line has a few new products that have caught my eye, most specifically, the gorgeous Chalkboard Bookshelf (above) and the Tabletop...

Wishlist wonderful: a kid’s desk designed to dazzle

My kids have always been obsessed with arts and crafts. (I don’t really know of a kid who isn’t.) And as a parent, I’ve always tried to create fun spaces for my kids to use their imaginations to the fullest. Now this desk is at the tippy-top of my design list. The Deskhouse by Cool Kids Company is a smart but trendy piece that functions as an art desk and a playhouse. How fun is that?  Designed by Alberto Marcos, it’s a pricey but really clever drafting desk for art activities and a most inviting hideaway. Look carefully and you’ll...

Funky kids’ furniture that’s not your average kids’ furniture

When I started searching for furniture to fill my kids’ bedrooms, I was on the lookout for pieces that were kid-friendly yet well designed.  I wanted something that didn’t feel predictable.  And above all, I wanted something that didn’t look like it was rescued from a daycare. (You know what I’m talking about.)  We have featured a lot of great furniture pieces here on CMP and now one more can be added to that list.  Tot Republic offers unique designs along with a truly sustainable and Earth-friendly approach to construction and materials. You can tell that through their designs,...

The ottoman fit for your child’s adorable little butt

I am one of those moms who totally wants my house to look as good as it did pre-kids, but also recognizes that that is ridiculously impractical and it will never happen and no, it’s okay, I have my own Kleenex. So when I find furniture that both looks great and won’t get ruined easily, I’m all over it. The Quinze + Milan Jelly Fish Ottomans are bigger than they look – and that’s a good thing. Two of them in the living room makes for great emergency seating around the coffee table–two small kids can fit on one,...

Tree swings like they used to make them

One of my children’s very favorite thing about Grandma’s house is the the swing in the backyard. We are city-dwellers after all, and swings are generally something you have to wait in line for. This one started as a little baby swing hanging from a sturdy tree branch, evolved to a tire swing, and who knows what it will become after that. Maybe even this beautiful, totally handmade swing. The handmade tree swing from Philly woodworkers Margaux and Walter Kent is totally made of reclaimed wood and each one is made to order. The one in the photo is...
