24 Of The Sweetest Bedding, Furniture, Storage + Play Pieces For Kids!
As with any space, furniture is an essential building block to a room’s completed aesthetic. Function aside, these pieces are often the biggest elements in a room — and will probably be the biggest investment, budget-wise.
Plyroom is a great option for this very reason, their deceptively simple timber funriture is designed to adapt to changing needs. Plus, the furniture’s warm, neutral colour make it the best backdrop for playful pieces like Bonnie and Neil’s, newly released, Wave Side Table and the sweetly speckled Charlie Chair from The Memo, to really pop!
Bedding choices, perhaps more than anything, can have a huge impact on how a room feels to be in — and the best thing about bedding, is you can swap and change it quite easily as kids grow.
This is where you can really have some fun with colour and pattern, and some of our favourite go-to’s for exactly this are Castle, Bonnie and Neil, Sage and Clare, and Halcyon Nights. All these joyful local brands will take your kid from child to tween to teen.
Perhaps the most important element in any room is storage – but it doesn’t have to be boring! Drew’s Drawers from FEARON will quite literally bring a smile to every room (in fact their whole range is fun) , while Mustard Made’s varied and super colourful collection of lockers will have you covered for everything from hanging clothes to storing toys.
For smaller storage needs, it’s hard to go past the neopolitan-coloured (and collapsable) boxes from The Memo, or whimsical baskets from Olli and Ella!
It wouldn’t be a round-up of children’s furniture and homewares without a section on items for play. And one brand we continue to go back to is Australian brand jnr.life, who create useful play essentials, such as their high-quality play mats and soft play shapes, that you’ll proudly keep on display at home (and can also double as furniture).
Other favourites include the beautifully handcrafted wooden Australian animals by Warruck Yambo and our dream modernist doll house; the Miniature Funkis House by Ferm LIVING from Designstuff.
