Children’s Furniture

Let’s get started by looking at some furniture finds that are clean-lined and child-friendly. This Neon Nightstand in Neon Yellow from The Land of Nod reflects the current metal and wood furnishing craze. The vibrant neon yellow color for the base is a lively wake-up call for any room!

Yes, ombre is still en vogue! This Chromatic 3-Drawer Dresser in Blue from The Land of Nod features incorporated drawer pulls, and of course, a gradient-style paint progression that proves ombre design is alive and well.

These days it’s all about grey. In fact, grey just might be this season’s favorite neutral! Which is why this Uptown 4-Drawer Dresser in Grey from The Land of Nod is not only sleek, but also very on trend:

When geo style meets the natural beauty of wood, you have a sculptural furniture solution. Or in this case, multi-functional pieces that can be used as nesting tables, stools and more. Say hello to 3 Blocks from Kalon:

This Swiss Dot Bedding from The Land of Nod is simple and classic, yet undeniably modern. Since it’s 100% cotton, this black- and white-print bedding is also as comfy as it is stylish!

Retro-meets-modern patterns are still making waves this fall. In fact, this trend is absolutely here to stay. The Half Shell Rug in Turquoise from The Land of Nod combines dark and light teal for a print that truly pops!

Children’s Lighting

From textiles to lighting…we now shine the spotlight (no pun intended) on a selection of whimsical and classic lighting finds for your child’s room. This Cloud Lamp from Ferm Living is crafted from plywood and painted a minty shade of blue. Yes, clouds are “in”, but they’re not overdone at this point in time, so this look is still very fresh!

A timeless form is one of the standout features of the Light Years Yellow Table Lamp and White Base from The Land of Nod. Another unforgettable quality: the striking combination of bright white and bright yellow!

Faceted geo forms evoke the mystery of gemstones and minerals. Plus, they seem to have an extra sparkle, don’t they?! This Weston Complete Lamp from Pottery Barn Kids features a geo shape crafted from glass:

Industrial style is here to stay! This Solid Task Lighting from Pottery Barn Kids gets its color and form from iron with a painted finish. Task lamps are both child-like and grown-up, and both retro and modern. Which must be why they’re so versatile!
