I know children’s furniture might seem like a weird topic for a grown woman to write about, so let me explain myself. Last week, I journeyed home to Manchester to visit my brother, his wife, and their five-year-old son. I hadn’t seen my nephew since he was two, so he had obviously changed a lot.
For example, he had mastered the art of using the toilet, which he told me about with the same enthusiasm my brother told me about his promotion.
Another thing my nephew did with enthusiasm gave me a tour of “his” house. I had already gotten a tour from my brother, but I hadn’t seen the house through the eyes of a child. I didn’t see what he deemed to be its best features, such as a skirting board on which he had proudly though incorrectly spelled his name.
The thing my nephew was most excited about showing me was a chest of drawers my parents had given him for his birthday. It featured four compartments, two down and two across and parted in the middle by wooden bellows, giving the chest of drawers the appearance of an accordion.
Some might see this as an odd present to give a child, but my father is an accomplished musician and his grandson has long had a fascination with his accordion.
He loves that chest of drawers, and I would have loved to have one as a kid. I’d love to have one now! It got me thinking “What other cool furniture did I miss out on?” So I did a little of research and came up with this list of the most awesome children’s furniture on the market!
I’m sure those who share my interest in children’s furniture are not quite as sad as I am and are reading this to find some decor for their child’s bedroom and not because they want to imagine what their childhood would have been like had they had a race car bed.
