Modern Childrens Furniture
I have recently developed an interest in modern children’s furniture for the kids. Their bedroom furniture is on the modern side of things, so I have been adding pieces that would fit in well. Henry has a very modern desk which is modular in design. This means the pieces all fit together to form the desk but you don’t need tools. I wanted to find a chair or a stool that would go with the sleek design of the desk. I had a hard time finding furniture that would work into his decor. I found a ton of adult focused chairs, but not too many for kids. The few pieces I did find for kids were very unusual and very, very expensive. I had about given up when I found a great online store that is kid focused and friendly and all their furniture has a purpose.
Tambino is a company based out of Redwood, CA and was developed by Jessica Cohen. With a degree in architecture and a Masters of Fine Art from U.C.Berkley, Cohen had a background ripe for developing smart, fun and purposeful furniture for little ones. The origin of the Tambino name is a combination of the Italian word for baby, which is “bambino” and the Hebrew word for child or innocence, which is “tam”=Tambino! I just love that, don’t you?! The goal Jessica had for her furniture was to offer creative designs for the imaginative and developing minds of inquisitive children. The materials used in producing the Tambino furniture have a great meaning as well. The wood, which has the world’s highest ecological rating, comes from Russian birch plywood and American maple plywood, which are extremely strong. The paint and sealants are non-toxic and are made in the U.S.A. Show Tambino some love by liking them on FB and following them on Twitter!!
Creative Chair Designs For Kids
Jessica Cohen believes that creative chair designs for kids are exactly what they need to be inspired to think outside the box. Cohen has a whimsical side that is absolutely evident in her amazing designs. I love everything in the Tambino store and I had a tough time narrowing down my choices for the item I was to review. I finally decided on the adorable and playful 7-8-9 chair in blue hues ($69.99) because it fit perfectly into Henry’s room. The varying hues of the blue in the chair go from an indigo to a soft and pale blue. The chair was easy to assemble and is too stinking cute for words. I will say that I am really bad about seeing a picture of something I like and not paying attention to the description. The chair is meant for a child 2-7, so it is more like a small stool for Henry, which is fine; he loves his cool stool. It is well made and quite sturdy, which are both a plus when you have kids. Cohen says her designs inspire creative minds to achieve their abstract thinking skills. I agree with her philosophy that children are more apt to learn in a creative, fun and functional environment. Well then, I am off to a good start by adding this unique and playful chair/stool.
