Back-to-school Essentials

Summer is winding down, and back to school time is just around the corner!

Helping your child achieve their dreams begins earlier than you might think. While children are filled with excitement and first-day jitters, parents are filled with thoughts of  “Am I prepared enough?” To help eliminate these thoughts, and help you and your child prepare for the new school year, all you need is a little organization and forethought. These tips for creating space for study, playtime, and relaxation will fire up their imagination while preparing them for back-to-school time.

We have a few suggestions and tips for essentials items for the fresh start.

  • Furniture
Ethnicraft – Origami Desk

A small desk with storage or a coordinating file cabinet and a comfortable chair are essential. Inspired by the fine art of origami, Ethnicraft’s Origami desk is sure to spark creativity with its unique shape and form. Five drawers offer ample storage to keep you well organized.

Ferm Living – Little Architect Set

Little Architect series from Ferm Living, include a table, chairs, a bench and desk in five different colors that match so that you can mix them all together. The furniture is simple, contemporary design on children’s level and the perfect base for the little ones to unfold their creativity. The Little Architect Table is crafted from ash veneer and comes in subtle colors.

The colorful Brida Chair, designed by Grupa Studio for GIR, is the perfect choice for kids. Clean angles and surfaces accentuate the feeling of mass and firmness while at the same time it achieves a visually purified, elegant and fluid form. 

  • Lighting

Make sure there’s plenty of ambient and desk lamps in your kids room.

Ferm Living – Elephant Lamp

Creating the right ambiente at night-time can be helpful with the winding down of the day. Choosing gentle lighting can help create a cosy atmosphere to their rooms. Dimmable bulbs help here, as does layering the lighting with wall or table lamps. Our recommendation is to choose some of the cute animals lighting from Ferm Living. For the practical desk lamp, we choose timeless Tip Lamp from Muuto.
