fun kid's furniture... even for adult spaces?

Sophisticated shoppers today want to decorate their baby's rooms with furnishings that will grow with their children. So kid's furniture lines are becoming refined in order to accommodate. Not only do they pack a punch with some great colours and smaller dimensions for child sized rooms, they are also made to last. With this in mind and the growing popularity of small urban living, why not consider them for the adults too? Small scaled nightstands are great for tiny master bedrooms, and some of the unique storage components would be great for kitchen or bathroom storage.

Consider some of these pieces for small space solutions.

And don't forget a small spot in a bathroom where these handy bins can hold towels and toiletries with ease.
