Colorful & Modern Play Carpets for Kids

Origami-inspired Zip Rugs by Mut Design Studio

A few years ago, I came across a col­lec­tion of out­stand­ing carpet-puzzles made in Poland. It was love at first sight. I’m a big fan of East­ern Euro­pean toys and children’s fur­ni­ture, and I espe­cially love the way these young design­ers incor­po­rate tra­di­tional folk crafts, pat­terns, and mate­ri­als into their work.

These mod­ern wool felt car­pets by Agnieska Czop & Joanna Rusins are inno­v­a­tive, orig­i­nal, and fun. I can eas­ily imag­ine my kids spend­ing hours play­ing with the giant fab­ric puz­zles. I would be quite happy just look­ing at them!

I’m equally smit­ten by this col­lec­tion from Dam!Design. Cre­ated by a group of design­ers from Wro­clow with a pas­sion for Pol­ish art, the play­ful prod­ucts com­bine aes­thet­ics and func­tion­al­ity, serv­ing as both fur­ni­ture and toys.

In addi­tion to a small range of felt board games and larger carpet-puzzles, they offer a col­lec­tion of  clever game-poufs, each designed to stim­u­late a child’s imag­i­na­tion through play. Dam!Design strives to cre­ate prod­ucts that will appeal to young and old alike, hope­fully encour­ag­ing fam­ily and friends to join in the fun, too!

Each pouf is hand­made from wooden pan­els, stitched felt, and mag­netic paint, and includes a num­ber of games like check­ers, noughts & crosses , and tan­gram. The game pieces are made from cor­ru­gated card­board and felt, pack­aged sep­a­rately in bags that can be stored inside the chest along with other lit­tle treasures.

Dam!Design’s prod­ucts are avail­able on both Dawanda and Etsy. You can keep up-to-date with the lat­est news on their Face­book page. One to book­mark, for sure. Love!
