(Over the past month on Apartment Therapy , Maxwell has been presenting products and ideas from independent designers as part of a Design Showcase competition - here is another that we thought the Ohdeedoh readers would be especially interested in checking out - enjoy!)
Materials: Hardwood, Non-toxic lacquered paints, Polished chrome and rubber casters
Price Point: $400 to $500
"Inspired by my 21-month old son, this playtable stores toys, books, shoes, or whatever! Perfectly sized and accessible for tots, the playtable includes two open shelves and two storage drawers all under an ample reversible table top that has a chalkboard surface on the back side (not shown in images attached)....
"Rubber casters with brakes make it easy to move around and then lock in place. Accent colors behind shelves and at seat zones can be any color to complement any decor. Fun alone or with friends! (chairs not included)"
Designer: Jennifer Mujat-Kearns
Location: New York City, NY
