Mod kids furniture that looks just like the grownup stuff

Adding to the growing list of things I know now, that I didn’t when I had my first kid: I would have skipped the cheap stuff, and invested in a solid kids’ table and set of chairs. We’ve gone through far too many to count. If you’re a mid-century fan on the lookout for cool kids’ chairs at a fantastic price, you’ll want to snatch these up while they’re on sale.  Reminiscent of the Arne Jacobson chairs, the bentwood Kids’ Scoop-Back chairs at West Elm are a beautiful addition to any kids’ table. They’re available in either ash or white...

3 cheers for the Pantone 186, Pantone 12-4302 and Pantone 286!

I’ve always been a sucker for the Pantone licensed products, which let you show your allegiance to lavender or mimosa through desktop goodies. Now, they’re available in folding chairs which are pretty darn great for outdoor lounging season or when you need to pull up a few extras to the picnic table for the kids. While I’ve got red and blue featured right now, on Fab.com today you’ll find 11 gorgeous colors from neutrals to a gorgeous turquoise my kids would beg for if I showed it to them. Though sadly? There is an orange, but no tangerine tango....

A clever alternative to the round kids art table

When my kids have their friends over, they end up taking rule over my entire house. Every room becomes their room and every chair becomes their chair. Not that I mind but I can see why decorating experts recommend having a designated area for the kids, with their own designated kid-friendly table and chairs. This stylish children’s table and bench set from Jennifer Delonge is child-sized and perfect for your little ones to have dominion over. It will look good in any modern home, in any room that has the space for it. It comes in 5 different beautiful...

Kids’ furniture that boosts creativity? Why not!

When designing a kid’s bedroom, it’s always important to find functional yet fun pieces to fill their space. Kids are attracted to color and texture; my son’s own favorite chair was the most colorful yet ugly thing that you’ve have ever laid eyes on. (I hid it when guests came over.) Jekca however, has created a line of kids furniture that is colorful, modern, whimsical and like nothing we’ve seen. Essentially they’re made from a series of blocks that can be configured all different ways. The recommendation is for kids 8 and up, but younger ones will love to...

My apartment has been taken over by art supplies! I want to hold on to many of the supplies and keep them in an organized manner…if this this possible with a 3 year and 5 year old. –Holly   Hi Holly, With three of my own little artists, I can empathize!

Bedrails for kids that are so much cooler than bedrails.

My kids graduated to a big-kid bed in need of a bedrail, right around the same time that they discovered the joys of sneaking book under the covers to “read” past their bedtime. I love their thirst for books but don’t enjoy finding books twisted into bedsheets or flung on the floor in the morning. If you too have a bedtime bookworm in a new big kid bed, take a look at this smart combo bookshelf and bedrail that keeps your sleeping child, and their books, safely in place.   Tambino’s Alpha Bookshelf Bedrail is a smart-looking way to keep...

From Cradle to College

I love that furniture designers have stopped looking at cribs as a utilitarian object, and started embracing their artistic nature. GroFurniture is a stunning new eco-friendly furniture line, all made in the USA by real furniture artisans. It was started by a husband and wife who created these cribs for their own children. And now make them for everyone. Each crib is made to order and from what I can see, the assembly is easy. Of course, this all comes at a price. But fortunately, it’s meant to grow with your baby; you can purchase the bundle set which...

How to turn IKEA into MyKEA

I’ve got a love/hate relationship with IKEA. I love it, because it’s reliable, dependable, and honest. I know what I’m getting, and there are no surprises. I hate it at times, for all of the same reasons. IKEA furniture can be dreadfully boring. Sometimes a room calls for more punk than practical. What to do? Thankfully, MyKea offers a solution that rocks awesome. It’s like Threadless meets Ikeahackers. Pick an artist’s motif, and then choose the piece of furniture to cover. The result is an artistic, colorful set of decal stickers that are professionally produced and made to fit....

A toddler bed fit for a king. Or a very lucky toddler.

When we bought our first crib, we listened to everyone who told us to make sure to get one that converts to a toddler bed. But then we had another kid who needed that crib, so we still ended up getting a toddler bed anyway. Truth be told, our kid never liked the thing and just ended up sleeping in a twin bed with rails.  With our third, however, we didn’t have enough room for that solution and a toddler bed probably would saved us a lot of heartache and sleepless nights. [don’t miss a sweet giveaway after the...
