Design Inspiration: Tech For a Happy Homework Station

Sometimes we come across the most awesome furniture and tech accessories that we wish we could have picked out for ourselves when we were kids. Here's a roundup of some of our favorite items we'd deck out a kid's work corner with.

Horbert: With our obsession with beautiful wood products, we were quite taken with Horbert, which is a beautifully designed wooden MP3 player. Horbert comes with software compatible with Mac and Window devices to help you transfer your audio files to be playable on the MP3 Player. It can play up to 8.5 hours of content, allowing kids to listen to music or audiobooks in style.

Music Balloon: We can't look at something that's shaped like a balloon and not be reminded of happy childhood memories. These music balloons are portable, rechargeable USB speakers. They're light and small enough for kids and round and colorful enough to make any kid happy. Plug it into any MP3 player or laptop to instantly amplify your kid's tunes. It's also great for bringing along to outdoor activities like bike rides or picnics with the family.

Hiromatsu Furniture: We love furniture by Japanese-based furniture company Hiromatsu Furniture. While it probably wouldn't be realistic to have furniture shipped from overseas, their designs are great inspiration. Two of our favorites are the little wooden desk and chair. The chair seating comes in a checkered pattern with multiple colors. Also on our favorites list is their kid's sofa designed by Yu Watanabe. It comes with various sized cushions and can be arranged however you want — perfect for all the different activities kids are engaged in.

Ice Cream Lamp: Nothing will cheer up a room like a giant ice cream lamp. Reading next to this lamp will always be a good time.
