Lab. is a lovely boutique from France (but shipping world wide!) selling an exclusive collection of household linen & furniture. All their items are made in France with the greatest care. This process allows Lab. to propose custom-made service with options on size or fabric combinations. Great attention is paid to the solidity and the softness of their designs.
The fabrics used are from high end labels such a Liberty from London, Kvadrat and A.P.C. Lab.: “Our collection is entirely made in France, not out of national pride but to achieve a good quality while limiting energy & material waste.
It enables us to make unique styles on demand.”

Don’t you love tipis? And can you imagine how much fun it must be for a kid to have a tipi in his/her room! A private place which is perfect for playing, relaxing or reading. My two year old son has a tipi in his room (see photo below). He loves and it also looks great as well (not unimportant..). This would be a lovely Christmas present!
There are tipis in different colors and patterns but I personally like the natural canvas one in white. We got ours (the one above) from Smallable (world wide shipping!). The comfy mattrass and cute pillows are from Colette Bream’s lovely Etsy shop. The crocheted garland is also from Smallable.

The H&M All for Children collection is now available! All for Children is a unique collaboration between H&M and UNICEF. Together they work to protect the rights of some of the poorest children in the world. They for example work in the cotton producing areas of Tamil Nadu India, one of the country’s largest cotton-producing states, and give children access to education. 25% of all sales from the All for Children collection will go directly to support Unicef’s projects. This collection is also available from Little Fashion Gallery (world wide shipping).
I made sure to order some products before they are sold out: the scarf, hat and the play house are on their way to our home!
H&M describe their ‘All for Children’ collection as “full of playful and timeless pieces which parents as well as their kids will love. The collection has the subtly of detail and design attention you’d expect from a full fashion collection, and always made with the child in mind.”
Zid Zid Kids is one of my favourite brands for kids. I have used several of their fun poufs and pillows/toys to decorate my son’s playroom. I love Zid Zid’s ambition to design with an unlimited imagination while blending the magic of play with the beauty of the handmade into every product. Also, they work with respect of the environment and they firmly belief that fair trade is the only trade.
This is a sneak preview of the new fall 2012 collection which will be available soon. Zid Zid Kids’ creative director Julie Klear Essakalli is such a talented lady! I also love her illustrations that she does for books. She also did the beautiful mural (top image).
Today I’m loving … these toy camera made from wood by Twig Creative. The cameras let your kids capture moments with their imagination and not your expensive camera. It has a spring-loaded shutter button and a turnable lens for the real picture taking effect. If this camera could take pictures of itself, it would. Made of solid wood, a cork bottom, and a cotton strap.
The Anagram (above) is a toy wooden camera inspired by Instagram. It is beautifully designed and handmade from sustainable wood, cork, and leather.

Ninetonine is a children’s furniture & design brand from Spain. They have some beautiful and fun designs in their collection. Some of my favorites are the deskhouse (image above), the toys & crayons shelf (image below) and the Kits rocking horse. The good news is that the kind folks from Ninetonine now offer a 15% discount to readers of the style files. If you would like to place an order you can send them an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), quoting the style files as a reference. This offer is valid until the end of September.
Ninetonine believes that the smallest members of the family should grow up surrounded by contemporary, original, and high-quality design. Thus, their philosophy is that all products should all be beautiful, creative, versatile, fun, and of course, safe and practical. They also believe childen’s furniture need not be stored or thrown away, so many of their pieces are also ‘convertible’, cots into sofabeds, changers into dressers, and tables into side-tables.
XO-in my room is a new Spanish (thanks Agata!) furniture label for kids. It is a venture of three brothers who have combined their passion for well designed furniture, their love for high quality materials and their craftsmanship and started designing and making beautiful children’s furniture. Between the three of them they have 10 children so you can say that they are experts on the subject!
You can visit their store here and see all items available. Everything here is handmade with love and care!
Today I’m loving … this Playmobil coat rack. It doesn’t seem very complicated to make it yourself. All you need is wood, glue and some Playmobil puppets. A fun idea for a boy’s room!
