5 Small Children’s Furniture Companies with Big Ideas
If you’re reading this article, you likely know that we are a kid-functional design company that crafts long-lasting furniture to complement the aesthetic of the home as a whole. Our founder left a career as a chef because his daughter needed a chair that fit into his home, and quickly realized that he was not alone. “The approach I took was that kids should be introduced to design-forward objects at an early age, just as parents introduce different and adult foods at that age as well,” David says. “The goal is not to dumb down food or design for children but to elevate their experience in both.”
As we’ve grown, explored the niche of modern, environmentally conscious and design forward kids furniture, we’ve found we are in good company. Here are a few of our favorite brands to furnish your homes, children's rooms, and nooks with.
Approaching design from a tactile and sensory angle, Tink Things believes “Sensory rich spaces work as a food for the brain, as real learning always involves patterns of physical activity.” Their furniture is aesthetically pleasing, playful, chic and forward thinking.
