the friday happy list: kid furniture

No, we don't have any kids. No, I'm not pregnant. But this is one of my all-time favorite decorating tips: shop at kids stores. Crate & Barrel (Land of Nod), Pottery Barn, & Restoration Hardware all have furniture stores for wee ones, but that doesn't mean the furniture is just for kiddos. Some of my favorite finds have come from these stores.

Circulation chest. This is our newest piece of furniture - it actually just got delivered today! When we went antiquing this fall, I fell in love with several vintage card catalog & apothecary cabinets, but none of them were quite right for our space. When I saw this circulation chest, I knew I had to have it. It's the perfect fit for our entry where we need a small piece with decent storage. I love that this chest has the card catalog look, but with more practical larger drawers. 

Felt Nativity. I bought this a few years ago after looking everywhere for a nativity scene I actually liked. So many of them are, well, a little hideous. The glitter Merry Christmas banner we bought this year was also from PB Kids. Even if you're not ready to dive into the world of kid furniture, at least check them out for seasonal decorations - you might be surprised!

Kitchen rug. Land of nod also has great rugs. I searched high & low for a kitchen rug until I finally found this one....and then I had to talk Jon into it. I'm glad I did. It's amazing I have to talk him into things - as if he has any idea about decorating. When they make rugs with kids in mind, you know they are made to last - perfect for a high-traffic area like a kitchen.

  2. Nice post, I also love your kid’s furniture idea. Furniture is really an important element of a kid. There are many online Furniture shopping stores, but I found is one of the leading store in FL,from which I have made the last purchase for my kids at nice prices.
