Furniture Designs for a child

Our brief for this project was to create an exciting and enjoyment filled space; therefore the furniture had to match this. We wanted the furniture to look fun and feature some bright colours and patterns that would be featured elsewhere in the room. We designed the products as a matching set so that they would look fitting together in the new bedroom.

For the bedside tables we kept them small to fit in either side of the bed which is also a bespoke design by Kettle.
The bedside table has a small drawer and underneath there will be a storage box that will be covered in a patterned fabric to compliment the design scheme for the rest of the room. The drawer front has clean rounded corners and features a curved cut out which will be used as the handle to access the drawer.

The image below shows the colours that we have been playing around with for the bedside tables.

 

For the desk we have kept the idea of the curved shapes that we used for the bedside table and it features the same design for the drawers except the desk will have two drawers, one larger than the other, which sit on the left hand side of the desk. As the desk will be sat in the corner of the room it has been designed in an L shape to allow it to fit into the corner easily.

Here is an image of the idea that we have come up with for the desk and shows a possible colour for the set of drawers.

 

Both products feature the same drawer design and rounded rectangle cut outs in the legs to keep the look modern and fun; both will be made from a high gloss white wood laminate. The drawer fronts will feature bright colours to match the rooms design scheme and add to the fun exciting design of the room.

Finally here is an image of both of the furniture pieces together, showing how they could possibly look once in the brand new bedroom.

Stripes, spots, floral… What would your child want in their bedroom?

We have recently undertaken an exciting new project; to design an exhilarating, colourful, child’s bedroom. There are a vast number of designs and patterns on the market these days but how exactly do you decide which one to go for? This got us thinking, what designs would your child decide if they got to choose their very own scheme? We think we may just have the answer…

 

Stripes help to trick the eye into thinking that a room is larger than it actually is; use vertical stripes to deceive the eye into thinking the room is taller and horizontal to make the room seem wider.

Spots have always been popular within interior design and people are coming up with more innovative ideas on how to use them. Whether it is polka dot wallpaper or a random stencil pattern; bring fun back into a bedroom by simply adding them in!

Floral’s are perfect to use within a child’s bedroom in contrast to popular belief they are not only used for the older generation! Try Sahco’s Pixus Fabric which brings floral into 2015 by adding pixilation to the geometric pattern.


Each design style would look amazing in any child’s bedroom as each is fun and can be used in many different ways and colour styles; but we feel we can go one better than that. Why not be brave and use all these different styles, colours and patterns and combine them in one bedroom together? This creates a fundamentally exciting haven that your child will never get bored of. Go on, take the leap, and produce something utterly unique today!
