    Bril­liant.  A clas­sic design that still works today.  I won­der how chil­dren react to it?

  • Berto sofa

    Wish I’d found this blog ear­lier. Some really
    great posts.Very inter­est­ing. I hadn’t thought of some of these things before.

    Nice col­lec­tion of chil­dren futrniture.In dec­o­rat­ing the fur­ni­ture has its full place as it is also a key
    ele­ment of the aes­thetic of a room. It can be as much an asset than a
    lia­bil­ity to hide.
