Design tables for kids
Ive been thinking of buying a table for my minimoi for a while. Shes now 19 months old and is starting to draw her first artworks so Ive thought of devoting some space as her creative corner to guarantee that the whole flat doesnt end up becoming her atelier. Although I know Ill end up buying a cheap and simple plastic table, Ive surfed several design furniture sites just to dream a little bit.
One of the brands Ive discovered is Buisjes En Beugels. This Dutch brand sells a wide range of kids furniture like the INSEKT Bureau and the Growing Table (which evolves with your minimoi). The Growing Table has some holes in its base that can be used to insert some accessories (no more pencils rolling down the table).
Shibafu Table is a design by Emmanuelle Moureaux. Its not really a child table (impossible to put the legs under it) but it will for sure delight the most little ones with the effect of the colored feet on the acrylic base.
But if theres something that kids love is to play with lights and shadows. People from Verpan know it well so theyve created the Ilumesa that can also be used outdoors.

Another brand to bear in mind is the American Offi that sells from chalkboard and foam tables to reeditions of design classics.
Old school fans can now choose between the modern reviewed version by knelt or the retro version by Ma pétite série déco while recycle freaks will be delighted by the cartboard Krooom table.

And finally check out the fun Daily Shelter for grown up kids that can be used either as a table or as a playhouse.

Do you stick to the plastic classics or are you more into a design table?
