Oeuf at LFG

Oeuf is an American brand created by Sophie Demenge and famous for its clean, beautifully made cribs and bedroom furniture. About 3 years ago, the brand launched their knit collection, “Oeuf Clothier”, successfully sold across the US. Good news : the brand is finally available in Europe. We love the comfy jumpers, pants, cardigans made in Bolivia, with their clean look and subtle colors. The toys and decor items are a wonderful addition to the clothes. Don’t miss the Robe tunique Ivy and the Forest coat. And of course the Sparrow cot, all available at Little Fashion Gallery.

Pop space by Matali Crasset

petits.jpg

Adolescents 1.jpg

 

It’s evolutive, it’s beautifully designed, it encourages children’s autonomy. This bedroom concept called Pop Space is created by Matali Crasset and produced by French company Espace Loggia. A great way for children to have a space on their own, that can be adapted to their growth. In between a cabin and a viewing platform, Pop space is very playful. It provides an atmosphere of protection as well as the feeling, for a child, to be “in charge”.

In a little more than 3 years, Tolix has conquered every stylish house all around the word. In addition to the reeditions of the iconic metallic chairs and stools, the French brand has developed a great range for children, including coat hangers called Tatou, a chalkboard called Girafe and a bench named Crocodile. Well done.

Available at Bobo Kids, Conran Shop, Few and Far in the UK and Design within Reach in the US

Drawing on Naef wood cubes

Five water – soluble chalk crayons enable children to draw their imaginary world on the maple wood cubes, which are varnished with high quality blackboard paint. In no time, colourful cats or fabulous magical fishes are created. A quick wipe with a wet sponge and the cubes are clean and ready for something else. It’s new, it’s great and no surprise, it’s Naef.
