Recycled from gym floorboards and made from sustainable / eco-friendly materials, i'd say that Soren Rose designed some pretty stellar pieces! These could play very well in the modern child's bedroom, playspace or family room!
I've been busy as of late so my apologies for slow posts. Ive been working on some amazing projects. Some I can't share just yet, some i've yet to photograph, and some still in the works! In the mean time, I thought I'd share a few sneak peaks of a residential project out in Los Angeles. This is a custom bookcase/storage unit I designed along with the customized indoor play structure from CedarWorks. Take note of one really important feature in this space - the puzzle soft-tile wood grain flooring! More coming soon......
San Francisco based designers Gitane Royce and Nisreen Witt are the genius minds behind Modern Playhouse. They set out to design and produce a simple and modern outdoor playhouse that is not too insanely priced. They currently have two models available and also offer furniture and accessories to outfit your playhouse. You had me at sophisticated, sustainable and safe!
This a is phrase that is usually followed by a stern look of caution ... and luckily, I've yet to muster this to my own child. Yet the list of "phrases my mom used to say" are certainly starting to surface. So, when I stumbled upon this product designed by student Emanuel Cohen, I was impressed to see a candle and crayon making nice. The design is stellar and execution on point. The only question is - how long is the wick? It would be great if the crayon could way out live the candle.
Not too long ago, I admitted that I had fallen in love with a treehouse. Well, this morning my love grew a bit deeper for THIS outdoor-cross stream-awesome-sanctuary-in-the woods-shelter. It makes me want to move to a place that has a stream in the back yard...... if only to re-create something like this.
While scouting for playful rugs for a client, these two from Amy Helfand really stood out. Her rugs are hand-knotted in Nepal with Tibetan wools and Chinese silks. And yes, they are all hand-carded, hand-spun and pot-dyed under the guidelines of GoodWeave, ensuring that no child labor is used in the production of her rugs.
The One to Four Table by Leon Fitzpatrick was designed as low lounge table with seating. Not only is it beautiful, comes flatpacked and well designed .... it would make for one dope children's table. It would be great if that hole in the middle was a lid to a little bin underneath.
