The thing about storage is, there is never (ever) enough! As parents we are constantly tidying up and putting away a vast array of toys, books and games that it can seem like a never ending task. So with that in mind, we put our heads together and came up with our top storage solutions for kids rooms, playrooms and everything in between. Because I’m sure you’ll agree, there is nothing better than having ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’.
PERSONALISED DISPLAY SOLUTIONS BY LENNY & FOX
Lenny and Fox was born out of the necessity for storage solutions that would work in tight spaces and double as unique, personalised wall art for little ones. With a goal to help families streamline their lives and organise all of those bits and pieces, Lenny & Fox are designing products that are functional, beautiful and affordable. 100% Australian made and crafted from Australian timber, their hero products, The Shadow Fox and The Pastel Hanger elevate children’s rooms whilst serving a practical purpose displaying treasured belongings.
The Shadow Fox is a delightful display piece as well as a workstation for lotions, potions, wipes and more. In a nursery, it will become your best friend, keeping all of your baby essentials at arm’s reach. As your baby grows, it will transform into a home for beloved toys and trinkets, making a truly unique and personal feature in your child’s room. The stylish insert drawer is a handy addition for the inevitable bits and pieces collected along the way.
Display your child’s favourite fashion pieces loud and proud on The Pastel Hanger. Its customisable design and modern colour palette are perfect for presenting those special bags, hats, capes and coats for many years to come.
The Shadow Fox and The Pastel Hanger empower your children to put their own touch on their bedroom without compromising style.
BUILD, PLAY AND PUT AWAY WITH NOOK
As Australia’s original play sofa, Nook has paved the way for modular play in our homes. It was their own children’s creative play in their living room that inspired Nook founders Olivia and Patrick Rudomino to create a piece of furniture that was both safe and cosy and allowed their children to explore their creativity independently. And so, NooK was born!
All Nook products are made in Australia using high quality materials and environmentally sustainable practices. The range has grown to include over thirty-five different fabric options and a variety of extras including the ultimate home for your Nook, the Nest.
Made from sustainable birch ply, the Nest keeps your NooK cushions secure, making a sturdy base for every one of your NooK builds. And when the games are over, tidying up is a breeze, as the Nook cushions are stored compactly as a cosy sofa. Its modern, modular design slots together in minutes and can be configured to suit any space.
Your NooK and Nest will offer endless play opportunities as well as a sleek storage solution in your home.
