It's been awhile since we've been this excited to share a new company with you (well new to the US anyway). Before now, Little Nest has sold exclusively in Australia and we're glad they're finally sharing their design sense and products with the Northern Hemisphere. They carry pieces that are meant to last for generations and are new pint sized versions of their older, classical counterparts. Little Nest has produced quality, modern pieces that have an obvious classical influence. They're mini-replicas of iconic designs and are created in a manner that they'll last for not only this generation but more to come. Although their pieces carry a heavier price tag, they're built to withstand time and all the tests children have to throw their way.
Check out some of their pieces below and keep your eye on their store for all that is to come in the future. Right now they're only available online (though they have a US office in Torrance, California), but we're ok with that, their super fabulous photography leaves us quite confident in the products we'd be ordering.
