You probably already know that at Modern Kids Design, we think it’s good to have high standards—especially when it comes to kids products.
Eco-Friendly Furniture for the Style Conscious
Furniture for kids is no exception. As such, we are only interested in products that are non-toxic, sturdy, and eco-friendly. But we also want them to be beautiful, to make a statement, and to have an aesthetic that brings an artistic element to the room. Too often, a product only meets one of these needs: a toy looks great, but falls apart; a crib is made well, but lacks style.
Enter Kalon Studios, an L.A.-based design company that bills itself as “modern, sustainable and ruthlessly good looking.” It has built a reputation for impossibly stylish, long-lasting, American-made furniture that, like Spot On Square, is about as sustainable as it comes.
Introducing Kalon Studio’s Caravan Crib
The Caravan Crib exemplifies their unique approach. The bed is constructed from sturdy, non-toxic, and responsibly harvested American maple, and their signature wood oil finish is described as “practically food grade.” But it’s the stop-in-your-tracks good looks that really seal the deal for this piece. Effortlessly fusing sweet, youthful elements with a modern design, the crib will instantly augment the aesthetic of any space.
It’s an investment—we get that—but, as with many eco-friendly products, it’s a good one. And this one offers a three-for-one bonus.
The Caravan Crib has an additional conversion kit that easily converts the crib to a toddler bed and then into a beautiful divan sofa. We know it’s hard to grasp, so feel free to reach out to us if you’re interested and would like to learn more about how it works. Also, given that it is built to order, we are happy to assist you through the process.
When it comes to the Caravan Crib, you have the opportunity to get three items in one, essentially covering three stages in your child’s life. Your child can go from an infant to a toddler in this bed, and then he or she and the rest of your family can enjoy it as a divan couch for years to come. We like the fact that a piece of furniture your child used as a small baby can still prove to be functional years later.
From Horse to Stool—and More!
Kalon has also come up with a range of whimsical yet practical products that will provide endless entertainment for your children while simultaneously augmenting your home’s decor.
The colorful Hut Hut, for instance, is the traditional rocking horse reinvented. With vibrant colors and a modern design, these playthings are made to stimulate creativity. And when you flip it over, it becomes the most practical item imaginable—a stool!
With Kalon, you can always expect the top tier in sustainability. All of their products are made from recycled materials and are designed and built to last for generations. If you are looking for a solution for a modern and sustainable nursery or kids room that is built to order and built to last, you may want to consider this brand.
As always, thanks for reading and feel free to reach out to us if you have questions about this line or others. We always enjoy hearing from you and are happy to help if we can!
