In small spaces, there's no shuttling kids down to the basement to play. Your space is their space.
That's why we find Crypton fabrics so appealing. Crypton is an engineered fabric that is stain, water, odor, and bacteria resistant.
It provides an impenetrable barrier against spills, leaks and spit-up. That means you don't have to wonder whether the cushions underneath are getting moldy. And you get all of this without sacrificing looks.
If you want a hint of kiddy whimsy, we found this precious Printed Suede in Peapod (pic above). It's $57/yard and comes in other colors. Very nice in the nursery.
For the grown-ups, the company offers a wide variety of colors and prints in the collection sorted as Wovens, Suedes, and Textures. Michael Graves even designed a Crypton collection inspired by the sights of Umbria and Tuscany. Crypton also sells upholstered furniture. Check out the Anne Rocker for $899. The section of their site on kids' furniture is coming soon.
