Having a young niece and nephew opens up new possibilities when it comes to design. I am fascinated by melding architectural influences with keepsake additions to create a wholey unique children’s room. Forgo the conventional take on blue and pink and strive for unisex decor, equally welcoming to both boys and girls.
The highlights? The iconic Kay Bojesen Wood Monkey and a dose of the classics with a beautifully illustrated hardcover tomb of The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen. And, a stunningly handcrafted, minimalistic take on a child’s table and chair set from Brooklyn’s own Wintercheck Factory.
The 406 Children’s Work Set is a matching 3-piece table and chair set. Topped with a thick slab of industrial polyurethane rubber, the table is made from solid yellow pine. Matching pine benches are capped with an industrial polyurethane rubber and can be tucked away into the table.
