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.
