If you live in Manhattan and have children, chances are you've visited Yoya or Yoyamart. The stores, owned by couples Cristina and J.S. Boujnah and Stephane and Gena Gerbier, feature children's clothing, designer toys, high-end furniture and room decor. If you haven't been to either store, you can certainly visit Yoyashop.com which features the best of both stores. Here are some of our favorite finds...
We love the color contrast of the Frida and Che pillow, $59, which is silk screened by Michael Roman on a washable passion suede with a polyester fill.which is on washable suede -- because we could certainly use as many washable items in the nursery as possible.
For the Sanrio fans out there, the Tokidoki Hello Kitty is too cute. This limited edition piece, $48.95, is surely a collector's item.
If you are going with a forest theme for your child's room, these Burlap Vintage Mushrooms, $69, will certainly fit right in. The distressed quality of the burlap definitely goes hand in hand with the design of these fungi.
It seems as though it's giving a nod to both Tivoli and Fisher-Price, the Magno Wood Radio offers the charm of vintage with all the functionality of modern. Plus it's MP3 compatible and uses sustainably grown wood.
We've always enjoyed the Fauna line of pillows, but our 6-year-old self who never did get a pony is particularly smitten with the Fauna Pillow Pinto, $68.
Plantoy's Country Wooden Barn, $85, features a hayloft, grain sack, adjustable fences and plenty of open ended fund.
Crochet admirers rejoice! Anne Claire Petit's Crochet Polka Dot Tea Set, $85, is a lovely and whimsical addition to any nursery. Inspired by Meret Oppenheim? Perhaps.
We think Gloomy Bear totally freakin' rocks. He's a cute as heck teddy bear who pummels anyone near him. Seeing him donning a bunny outfit, $17, is too much.
Finally, there's Yoyashop's Vintage Ottoman unique and handcrafted, $389. Each one is handmade and unique and add a great seating piece to your child's room.
