Furniture as a Stage -- That kids don't want to outgrow

3_tea_pods_open_w_3_6_yr_olds1

If you have been reading our site for a while you know we are completely enamored with children's furniture. Maybe it's the big kid in us, or maybe it is because kids furniture just seems so much fun. As adults we get locked into that "what will other people think" syndrome -- or least manufacturers seem to think we're locked in -- so you get tiny little movements in innovation. Kids furniture is another story. And the best designers are the parents who have played anthropologist and watch how their children interact with furniture; namely, jumping on, curling around, snuggled up and preening on. Materials need to be liquid proof, head-banging soft and colorful.

Check out these FUNc-tional pieces by Iglooplay's design team of Lisa Albin -- and her two little girls. Albin uses designer shades in Krypton suede or UltraSuede® for her upholstery so no one cries over spilt milk. The three-piece Tea Pod has a removable tray to be yet another stage in a child's (or big person's) world. Her products are all made in the US. The small and large Tea Pod retails for about $1310 without the tray and $170 - 220 wood tray depending on type of veneer (maple, walnut or bamboo).

Its a very versatile furniture that can be used for both displaying and seating. It is also like a puzzle that can be match together to form different shapes.

Most couples are now choosing to go with a combo dresser instead of a three tiered open changing table. It offers a place to change the baby, as well as many drawers in which to store clothing and blankets. And by adding a hutch, it is a great investment for that transition from baby to older child.

Children love cute and colorful furniture. They like playing on it all day long and they feel very comfortable. One aspect that every one should know is that it should be safe for children to play with.
