As a company, Modern Kids Design is on a mission to make the world more “green” by helping you discover products that are good for you and for the environment. We also strive to serve as a resource for inspiration and ideas on how to make healthy living a “no-brainer” because, well, living healthy is so cool. It’s important too but, yah, we said it… healthy living is cool. And if you haven’t guessed, we’re based in California, the very cool San Francisco Bay Area.


About Us

Modern Kids Design was founded by Yvonne Hopkins, a dedicated green lifestyle enthusiast, blogger and mom. Yvonne had a hard time finding beautifully designed natural and eco-friendly products for kids in different age groups. After speaking with other parents, she learned she wasn’t alone, and Modern Kids Design was born.
Now our team consists of a small group of parents equally dedicated to living green with kids that range in age from infants through teens. Just like you, we want safe yet good looking products for our kids. We also like to support independent producers as much as we can. So, we’re always on the lookout for beautiful yet practical items for families.


About You

We strive to make Modern Kids Design really be about you. Your kids deserve to be surrounded by beautiful products that are safe and effective, don’t contribute to allergies and, of course, don’t have a negative impact on the environment. We make it easy to find toys, furniture, gifts and more that have a clean design aesthetic and leave the Earth clean too.


If there are brands you’d like to recommend or products and topics you’d like to learn more about, we’d love to hear from you! Feel free to reach out at!


Our  Shop + Give Donation Program

Our commitment to improving your life, your children’s lives, and the world around us is a direct reflection of our core values. We make a conscious effort to give back to our community, in our personal lives, and here at Modern Kids Design through our Shop + Give donation program. When you Shop with us, we are able to Give to great causes. As a member of 1% For The Planet, we are committed to donating a percentage of sales to support nonprofits working towards positive environmental change.


Our Products

Beautiful objects in our home environment help us feel better about ourselves and we want our kids to feel good about themselves too! We search for products for children and teens with a modern design aesthetic and a touch of whimsy. Once we find a great piece of furniture or learning toy, we take special care to make sure each product is made in a socially responsible and environmentally friendly way. Fortunately, there are more and more amazing earth-friendly producers out there and we’re looking forward to introducing them to you soon.


Our Blog

The Modern Kids Design Blog is a place where you’ll find all sorts of information on healthy living and eco-friendly products because we’ll write about anything (that interests us or our readers) AND, of course, you’ll find “good news” about our inspiring environmental nonprofit partners. Sometimes people ask who is writing the blog posts. These days, unless it clearly states it is a guest post, typically, we write as a team. We share values and enjoy sharing ideas, so while it’s unusual, it works for us!
