The CASAKids Collection by Roberto Gil features sleek modern nursery and pint-sized bedroom furniture that’s solidly built, refreshingly modern, and super roomy – all must-haves for your little one’s dreamy sleeping space. The sustainable OLA! line is crafted out of Lyptus, a fast growing, IBAMA-certified, plantation grown Brazilian hardwood – smartly finished with non-toxic water based paints. To add to all this eco-friendliness and future-forward thinking, the pieces in this collection can all be shipped flat – one of the best green style features, in our opinion!
To further reduce waste and minimize environmental impact, this impressively versatile collection also expands with your child, eliminating the need to purchase new bedroom furniture as your peep begins to grow in leaps and bounds. Consider the following great convertible and timeless design features:
- Modern aesthetics that aren’t too old for a baby, but also not too young for an older child.
- Changing table that converts to a basic dresser.
- Crib that converts to a toddler bed and then to a twin adolescent sized bed.
Brooklyn-based designer and architect Roberto Gil opened the doors of his hugely successful CASAKids company in 1992. Not long afterwards, popular design hot spots such as Barneys New York, FAO Schwarz, the Guggenheim, and the MoMA began to display his work.
According to the CASAKids website, Gil’s trademark colorful furniture ideas are based on unique inspirations such as cartoons, sawhorses, and scaffolding. Each piece utilizes a minimalist ‘less-is-more’ approach to materials and distinctive wood and finish choices.
