Design from other countries is always inspiring,
a point well illustrated by some of the wonderful nurseries we saw during the Smallest, Coolest Nursery contest
One of our favorite online sources is Nova68
, an online store dedicated to bringing the best of European design to the States, along with some easily recognizable names from American modern design.
That is the Yoodo frame builders kit, at right. Just $49.00, and made of fully recyclable heavyweight cardboard, this fort kit is a more affordable version of the Space Frame, and both are great for apartment-dwellers, since they pack flat after each use.
After the jump, a few of our favorite store offerings. Below, the Megasii Design Group's Cuddly Terri Bear Lamp. This lamp comes in a variety of colors, and comes with a washable marker so that you can leave messages for your kids on their nightlight. $68.00.
Mobelspiel/Furniture Game, designed by Willy Guhl in 1948. If only everything in our apartment was this well designed! $190.00.
Happy Big Jungle mobile, by Flirence Wetterwald. Handknitted by Peruvian artists. $110.00
Nova68 is currently offering free shipping, not just on their kid's line, but on their entire stock.
