Child's Play...

So I have been researching for cool furniture that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing .. for young children. Either to gather ideas or to inspire a new design.. I stumbled upon Little Nest.. based out of Australia

They specialize in contemporary childrens furnishings...

As a lover of contemporary furniture (especially anything Eames).. I couldn't help but admire these kid size pieces modeled after the famous Eames Chair, the Barcelona, the Bertoia ... (amongst others)



I would totally get my kids a Eames Lounge Chair.... Hey, it's never too early to appreciate good design.... although leather + crayons + playdoh might not be a great combination ...

Now I bet you can get these more locally in the US but what I really liked about these is the quality of materials and the accuracy of replication to the original sized pieces...

The Eames Lounge Chair retails for about $650 USD.. (some might think its too much $$ for something that will be outgrown relatively fast... but to each their own .. )

Check out their website... Little Nest

  10. The playroom is where a child’s imagination grows. And the Child Desks where it prospers. Well, I believe in having utility-based Kids Playroom Furniture at home.
