If you’re in the market for kids furniture that is as kind to your discerning eyes as it is to the earth, new designer April Hannah‘s Tree Table collection will knock your socks off! Featuring cool cutouts that make tabletops and chairseats look as if they’re perched atop tree branches, these modern pieces are crafted from FSC-certified wood using all non-toxic, formaldehyde-free finishes. Hannah made a splash when she debuted her new collection last week’s BKLYN Designs show — and she’s even got the Inhabitat Editor’s Choice Award for Best Kids Design to show for it!
We love the fact that Hannah’s furniture is geared towards older children (ages 5-10), who are right at the age where they need smart, well-designed desks and chairs for drawing and doing homework. Searching for fun furniture for her own kids, the designer noticed there was a glut of baby and adult furniture, but nothing really targeted towards the 5-10 set — so she set about filling that niche by designing her own line for her own kids in mind. Not only are these Tree Table pieces versatile and eco-friendly, but they’re simultaneously playful, modern and stylish enough to fit in with adult furniture, and guaranteed to bring out the inner child in even the most serious design buff.
