The Kutikai children’s furniture brand is a partnership between two architect mothers. Originating from Poland, Marysia and Dorota met during their studies in Cracow. A few children later, filled with inspiration, they designed their range of simple and inventive furniture, which keeps the environment in mind. Kutikai’s children’s furniture is multifunctional – A bed isn’t just a place to sleep, but a cabin for children to hide away in. Each furniture piece is responsible, inventive and made with love. You can shop for Kukitai at stylish kids store Smallable.

When it comes to kids room accessories, OYOY is one of my favorites brands. One of my favorite items from their collection is the Follow the Rainbow wall rug (which is available from Burke Decor). But there is plenty more to like from their collection!
I prefer to buy from small shops, labels and companies to support artists, designers and (small) shop owners. Often these businesses are run by women who work hard to combine motherhood with entrepreneurship. Which is not always easy I know from experience! Today I like to feature a wonderful collaboration between artist & designer Merrilee Liddiard and Gathre. This US based label, run by women, turned Merrilee’s hand illustrated print into a beautiful mat. The large version of the Our World mat can also be used as a wall display. I think this looks fantastic in a kids room! Designer Merrilee: “In recreating this map I felt impressed to call it ” Our World Map” instead of just “World Map”. I really came to love – even more – all the corners of this world we call home. We’re all in this together. It’s our world – the only one we’ve got, and we have a responsibility to her. To learn about her peoples, landscapes and stories. To respect her. To love her. And this mat collab is a perfect way to share all of that with our children – our worlds future.”
