Sorry for the lack of coverage on the show over the last few days. I have so much to share with you all, I don’t really know where to start.
I have spent the last four days walking the halls of the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, trying to cover as much ground as possible and chatting to many designers for some wonderful brands. I’d love to share furniture options with you today. The good news is we will be seeing some of these brands in Australia over the next six to 12 months and I’ll let you know when and where they will be available.
Oeuf displayed their new Robin range (pictured below) at the show today and I loved the new cot and dresser. I spoke with Michael, one of the owners of Oeuf, and he promises this range will be coming to Australia but has no firm date yet. The four-drawer dresser was also on show (a new option from the current three-drawer model). The walnut is stunning and looks terrific matched with the walnut mini library. We’ll let you know when the Robin range is arriving. This range will be available at Kido Store.
The Argington range has always been one of my favourites and we first mentioned them back in 2007 when they launched the Uffizi Bunk Bed. I had a firsthand look at these bunks at the show (pictured below) and they are stunning. We chatted about the possibility of bringing the range to Australia and once again, I’ll know you know when this might happen.
The huge success at the show was the just-launched Bam range. I have a few shots below but it’s such a large range that I recommend checking their website for more details and images. Bam is unbelievably versatile – the cot has a toddler bed conversion kit but more unique is that the bassinet has a conversion kit to become the cot. This guarantees a lot of use and becomes great value if you go from bassinet all the way through to the toddler bed.
This is the Eicho Collection from Spot on Square. I love the minimalist look of this cot and change table. It will look lovely in any nursery and will match any colour combination with its clean, simple white look. The Roh collection is a new range from the same designers and this launched at the show to a terrific response.
A favourite highchair I spotted was the limited edition Bloom fresco fiamma. With only 1,100 chairs made globally, you’ll need to be quick. I spoke with Simon May, one of the Bloom founders, and he explained how each chair is individually detailed and numbered so they are one of a kind, a real keepsake. The chairs are coated twice to give a car-quality high-gloss red finish. I was told Australia has an allocation of between 30 and 50 of these stunning new chairs so be quick if you want to grab one. They will be available early December in the US and will retail for US$600 (I will let you know the Australian arrival date and pricing soon).
