It was only a few years ago that parents were limited to purchasing children’s furniture from baby stores. I remember Holly’s first cot set was matching white timber, all from the same range and brand. While there’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with matching sets, there’s literally a whole world of other options out there, if you know where to look. Parents are now so spoiled for choice when it comes to furniture for little people and some of the best can be found in stores you may not have considered!
After sourcing pieces for my clients for years, last week I had the opportunity to work with Matt Blatt to give my 6 year old daughter, Holly, a mini bedroom makeover. My aim when browsing through the Matt Blatt website was to show parents that they can find some really amazing pieces that suit children’s spaces beautifully. The items I selected are whimsical, fun and practical but perhaps best of all, stylish and affordable! I think you’ll agree, the results are gorgeous and the Matt Blatt items that I selected bring a dash of maturity to the space too.
Using an existing desk, we added a chair, pencil holder, rug, lamp and side table to Holly’s room, all from Matt Blatt and all amazing. Let’s look at these pieces in closer detail.
I have loved this lamp for as long as I can remember. It’s instant glamour in any room and available in Silver as pictured. There’s also a larger version in a few different colours.
I don’t think pencil holders get much cuter than this! The perfect addition to any little one’s desk.
Children’s desk chairs can be so boring! As long as it’s the right height and comfortable for your child, dining chairs make great, affordable options.
Circular rugs are so popular for children’s rooms because they generally don’t require a large rug to fill the space. This one is a great size at 150cms, hardwearing with the jute centre and I love the gold edging.
I’ve always been a fan of this practical stool. It’s a great size for a side table if you’re pressed for space and it’s light weight construction is perfect for withstanding the harshest treatment from your little ones!
While this beauty didn’t make it into our shoot, I wanted to give a mention to this beautiful marble topped side table. Perfect if you need a larger table top.
The items I chose are such a small snippet of what’s available at Matt Blatt for every room in your home. So the next time you’re shopping around for the perfect pieces for your little ones, be sure to visit a Matt Blatt showroom or their online store, I’ll just know you’ll be surprised with what you find!
