Many people say that having children is one of the greatest joys in life. This may be true, but the same people say nothing about the mandatory – and often less attractive – equipment that children bring with them. You see, there are stacks of plastic toys on the floor, glitter-encrusted craft projects, and furniture that, as you like, never look right next to your own. When faced with such things, the immediate impulse can be to accept them as pointless – just some of the necessary but temporary aspects of parenting. However, this does not have to be the case today.
With more and more designers creating beautiful furniture for your little ones, it has never been easier to switch from garish to total work of art. From gorgeous handcrafted cribs to fabulous kid size armchairs, you wish some of these designs were available in your size!
