“Woow, it is so much better than I could have imagined.” That, with a big smile on their face, is a reaction I often get when the kids step into their new ‘house’. Because that is what I like to create for them: a house within a house. A space in which they feel home and safe. With a lot of cosiness.
Kids long for that. Their own special place in which they can retrieve. This old mansion, dating from the beginning of the 20th century in a rural Belgian place, was spacious enough to design a high rising volume, the ‘child-house’. This volume holds two beds and a top floor. It divides the room into three: left, right and a top-floor. The top floor can be a playing room while the kids are still young and a multimedia place when they turn teenager. Each bunk bed gives to their own desk and side of the room. With different lighting and colour accents, the two kids can create their own atmosphere. Besides the beds, the volume holds space for closets and drawers. The pinewood gives the whole place extra authenticity and warmth.
Gold Box is a luxurious kids’ toy box inspired by the fine gold bar shape. Inspired by the adventures of Scrooge McDuck, the richest duck in the world, this toy box is a useful storage solution for kids’ precious toys and secret treats.
This exclusive toy box is built on wood, lacquered with metallic paint and has gold leaf finishes. It features a rotating cover and a secret compartment, for the most treasured kids’ goods.
