You have probably heard the term “classy kid” used a number of times; however, it’s never usually related to furnishings. Yet, Restoration Hardware’s Vintage Industrial collection for kids is a mixture of class and kiddies’ charm. So much so, even a grownup would enjoy a few pieces in their room! Furry bean chairs, sleeping bags, and hassocks bring a sense of lavishness to a collection designed strictly for the kids. It’s a fabulous concept of modern intrigue with adult-like themes, created for the very young with style and grace.
Storage units are made from distressed dark wood with dressers structured from wood and golden hued metal handles. The industrial theme is fresh and modernistic but manages to remain within a realm where kids can relate to it. The plethora of materials, ideas, forms and shapes center around a particular theme. In other words, whether it’s a pink plush sleeping bag with rabbit ears or a bathrobe with a lion’s head for a hood, this company has managed to go where no other company has managed to go before: creating kid’s fun playthings swamped in the throes of elegance and sophistication.
Colors are muted but bright, grey tones highlight black and white furnishings and fun pieces. For example, gorgeous tepees are designed in black and white stripes, crosses, and stars with small decorative lights. And what’s so unique about Hardware 19 Vintage Industrial collection is that they are meticulous and stunning, but touchable. The beauty of each piece attracts children and they have no problem playing with them and having fun.
There are so many surprising elements to this company’s children’s’ collection. The purpose of some pieces is hidden but children have no problem comprehending their use. The “L” shaped canvas fabric storage piece is made from a durable material, while the playhouses are designed with delicate etchings. However, children get it that even though every thing is so lovely; it’s made for them to play!
Even furniture pieces are designed with care with a mature playful appearance about them; however, the quality of the workmanship and materials allows kids to have all the fun they desire. Knit cotton poufs, crochet floor pillows, trellis jewelry boxes, washed decorative velvet pillows, sating quilts, and flannel duvet covers all makeup part of this beautiful collection of elegant child’s play. Wool flat weave accent rugs are splattered with various shapes and geometrics.
Play chairs, fur chair cushions, porcelain tea sets, a 19th century rococo armoire, and frosted glass suspended lighting gives you an idea about the exquisiteness of a collection of children’s furnishings and playthings like you’ve never seen them before. Soft hues with elegant lines and beautiful materials place children in a grownup imaginary world and all the beauty it has to offer.
