Kids Love Design
Ooh, I have found a new store to get all hot and bothered about, France based Kids Love Design. The owner Séverine spent two years researching what has ended up being a well thought out, delectable collection of must have designer led products for kids.
Featuring furniture, decoration, toys, and unique design pieces, there are around 50 brands to wow your miniature style fiend such as Playsam, Automoblox, Esthex, Pappelina, NinetoNine, Normann Copenhagan (huge fan of their homewares in our kitchen….), Sirch, Thorstern Van Elten, Inke, Casala, The Snowroom, Richard Hutton, and XO.
Honestly, I actually swooned when I laid eyes on the the black Kily Bed by Sebra which also comes in natural, white, and baby blue. It is begging me to buy it and my brain is already thinking that considering that it lasts until your child is 7, this is a beautiful, practical design that will literally last for years, which in the overall scheme of things makes it a divine investment piece. Made from birch, it has interchangeable parts that mean you can lengthen the bed or remove the sides. The foam mattress with linen cover is also included in the price. 950 of your finest euros.
These My First Bikes by German designers FirstBIKE look really cool and can be enjoyed from 2 years old. A cool competitor in the balance bike market, it has an ergonomic, waterproof seat for stylish comfort as your tot learns to control the bike. Balance bikes are great for getting ready for a ‘big peoples bike’ and this is certainly a sleek buy with lots of features 119 euro.
Kat raved about achingly cool, contemporary Spanish brand, Ninetonine a few months ago and now I want their Owl 01 changing table (along with the rest of their range). It features fantastic storage that even when its changing days are over, this can still be a key piece in your child’s room (or yours) as a dresser. It has these fab lacquered storage elements that are sitting on top of the unit in the picture, that you can put all of these bits and bobs that get strewn about the place or kept in unsightly plastic storage. 825 euro
They have a really comprehensive delivery page which for the UK, postage ranges from 10-100 euro.
I am definitely an instant fan of Kids Love Design and will probably be dreaming about some of these items for a while and pitching them at the boyf….
