Even if your kiddos haven’t quite grasped the concept of good design, they’re sure to have their own reasons they think this vintage furniture is rad. And you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that there are things in life you can actually agree on.
#1 – Large sturdy legs make the Eames Child’s Chair, originally designed by Ray and Charles, perfect for squirmy tykes. It was first released in the 1940s but is now available today at ModernSeed.
#2 – Now what kid doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned rocking horse? This one was created out of Beachwood by Kay Bojesen in 1951. It has since been re-released by Rosendahl.
#3 – Plenty of fun colors make the 1960s Czech Mid-Century Table and Chairs perfect for art projects and tea parties. The designer for this beauty is unknown, but more information can be found here.
#4 – Kids find the simplest things fascinating. Admired for its minimalist functionality, the child’s rocker found a place in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection, but was originally made by the 50-year-old company Creative Playthings.
#5 – If your kids dread homework time, maybe they need a special addition to their workspace as an added incentive. Originally designed by Adam Stegner, the always classy Bentwood Stegner Chairs are available here.
Kids spaces don’t need to be centered on cartoon characters and unappealing furniture. Pick something out of the ordinary and you could spur some creativity in the process.
