Trendy children's rooms are all about form and function. Custom-designed kids furniture works in NYC. Every inch counts in our crowded city. Designers like Roberto Gil (the genius behind Casa Kids) can help you and your family make the most of your space. A pal recently hired him to outfit work and play space in DUMBO and the results are incredible.
In addition to custom work, Roberto has a site full of delightful case goods that are ideal for the modern urban family. We love the loft beds (could be one in our future soon). Momtrends says, think out of the box and check out CasaKids.com. Gil has the ability to please parents and children alike. He calls it an “efficient use of materials and intuitive connection systems.” We call it cool stuff.
This modern design find for children is a nifty little creation from P'kolino. I'm eager to train my girls to clean up after themselves. This means giving them storage options they can reach and that are attractive to use. BINGO--this clothing tree more than fits the bill.
Instead of tossing clothing and coats on the floor, here's a tidy little tree for your kids to stash backbacks, butterfly dress up, Batman capes and all of life's little necessities. There are plenty of branches to keep everything organized and OFF THE FLOOR.The tree stands 4 feet tall--ideal for preschoolers. And get this busy moms and dads--no nuts and bolts assembly required. Pick from four versatile colors. Buy it on Amazon for $71.37
Proportions matter. Little people want comfortable seats that provide easy access and comfort. Most child-sized seating is rather wretched to look at. Happily more and more brands like Monte Designs are coming up with solutions to seating that are good-looking, affordable and irresistible to kids.
Made in Canada, these Cubino items are made of thick and durable foam covered with a soft durable micro suede. Pick from eight two-tone color choices (I’ll be ordering the charcoal and green). Momtrends is extra thankful that the seat cushion can be removed and machine washed (I’m guessing they’ve got some parents working at this design house). Recommended for ages 18 months to 7 years, the loveseat ($139) measures 30′?L x 17′?W x 16′?H and the chair ($109) chair: 20′?L x 17′?W x 16′?H. I’m working on Momtrends discount–stay tuned. Design find #45.
Skip the Crowds and Take Your Family Skiing in Waterville Valley
After a sizable snow storm over Martin Luther King weekend, there were plenty of lift lines and skiers heading to Vermont. Amazingly, most of them drove right past an awesome resort. I'm encouraging families to skip the crowds on the next winter holiday and take a family ski trip ...read more
Keeping your New Year's resolutions
The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more

We love stylish storage here at Momtrends. These 3 Sprouts Storage Bins come in three whimsical prints (owl elephant and monkey) and are made of 100% cotton canvas. Ideal to serve as a hamper or a spot to stash the inevitable stuffed animal collection, these bins get the Momtrends seal of approval. The eco-friendly owl embellishing the front is made from eco-spun felt made from recycled water bottles.
This modern octopus chandelier simply rocks. This pendant lamp is made using colored aluminum rods and soft light bulbs. Available in your choice of black, red or white powder coated aluminum. 31.5″ diameter and the| drop is 26″-48–both are adjustable.
This would certainly set the bar high for the rest of your child’s furnishings. ($1,495.00 + $295.00 shipping). For more high-style options, you’ve got to check out Hive Modern.com.
The most inspiring kids rooms combine high ticket items and bargains. If you order everything brand new from one spot you’ll get a dull cookie-cutter room. I’m feeling a little guilty about the $1500 chandelier I’ve been drooling over, so I wanted to share these bargains from PB Teen. The perfect accent for a room that is getting too fussy.
The 30″ version is $19 and the cord an extra $12 (and Pottery Barn listen up–you make me crazy when you have these items offered this way! I looked at a table the other day where I was going to have to pay an extra $26 for the base. C’mon! The base of a table IS NOT OPTIONAL.) Sorry for this digression. These colorful lightweight lamps are a nice pop of color and a hip way to make a kids room or nursery appear more modern.
