These new pieces from the French Design studio of Castor & Chouca are just about the prettiest thing we've laid eyes on all week. Designed with the collaboration of nurses, mothers and hospital staff these pieces aren't just easy on the eyes, they were created with safety, sustainability and health in mind. They're good for the Earth and your children; the perfect combination.
Castor & Chouca aim to do their part and create furniture that's made to last and not be thrown away or tossed aside in "a blossoming universe where ecology, health, security and well-being are inseparable." Their products range between $325 USD for the small bookshelf, past the $5,000 mark for the largest changing unit with fold out drawers.
While the items at the top of the scale might seem out of some budgets, knowing that you're buying pieces that leave behind a small eco-footprint and will literally outlast you and most likely your children with proper care is rather comforting. Leaving your grandchildren furniture for their children is a rather cool idea if your budget allows.
