On a trip to LA last week, I stumbled into the most adorable little Los Feliz children’s boutique called La La Ling. It was one of those shops where you don’t know what to buy first; even my colleagues without children were scanning their brains for friends’ kids in need of some cool gifts.

While I loved seeing CMP faves like Rowdy Sprout and Giddy Giddy, something new to me were the spectacular handmade children’s bookends from the LA-based Wolfum.

Designer Annibel Inganni has a thing for vintage tableware and you can see it reflected in her collections. I love the subdued, sophisticated fabrics over the hand-cut shapes of bunnies, trees or coyotes (neat), all made from solid, fairly harvested wood.

The pics on La La ling don’t do them justice–they really are lovely, unique pieces. What a special
way to say that bookshelves matter. –

Find the Wolfum bookends and other clothing, decor, gifts and goodies for children online at La La Ling. Or if you’re in the LA area, stop in and behold the cuteness in person.
