Dwell – showcasing furniture for stylish little people

A very stylish friend once told me after creating a beautiful nursery for her daughter: “Just because it’s a room for a baby doesn’t mean it has to look like its been designed by a baby”. What a lightbulb moment – it’s easy to get carried away so that in the end your child’s room looks like a psychedelic homage to Disneyland but there is another way.

The trendy folk over at Dwell seem to agree, having put together a slideshow that’s a visual feast of mid-century furniture for kids. It matters not that these pieces date from the 1920s to the 1960s, they’d still look right at home in most elegant houses today – a testament to their ageless aesthetic.

Create a personal inspiration board with these images or buy something if the budget allows. Yes, some pieces are for sale but prices range from about $1500 to $6000, depending on the Australian exchange rate.

And for the lucky ones who will own one of these iconic samples of craftsmanship? Your investment buy is sure to remain a family heirloom for generations to come.
