The Netherlands is a little country,but with 'big' designers!!
Today i would like to introduce some of them, who i really admire.

These beds are designed by Agata and Arek, the two creators behind Rafa-kids, who are also great architects, husband and wife and parenting their two children. They have created also a toddlers bed and a bunk bed and i think the design is stunning, simple, useful and beautiful to watch!
with the design you save up a lot of space and you can arrange them in many different ways, just how you like it. The beds can be bought together or separately.
Kids will love to sleep and play in it!! 

This desk is designed by Kellie Smits, owner of the brand Buisjes en Beugels (which means tubulars and braces). its called INSEKT desk in size for children and in a bigger size for adults.
Kellie started designing kids fashion collections, which were a great success and after she launched her own web shop she still felt the desire to do more with product designing.
And as all of her projects she succeeded very well, she is a person to admire for me.

And then of course there is a great designer called Piet Hein Eek, who makes lots of Furniture for adults, but to me also one of the most beautiful baby beds in wonderful pastel colors.
He works with tough and rough materials,uses reclaimed materials and makes simple and practical designs. He is well known for his scrap wood furniture (like the baby chair and bed). Many years ago he started with left over materials from other projects and carefully arranged individual pieces together to make one of a kind furniture. Brilliant!
The materials of the above beds are sheet material, and therefor its called "crisis"!
In this series you find a cradle, a toddler bed, a changing table and a wardrobe.

To be continued, there is so much more to show and tell....
