To Know Miffy is to Love Miffy

Miffy

Drawn by a father for his one-year-old son,

We’re super pumped about this Dutch Rabbit!

Miffy’s her name, and this nightlight’s sure to stun;

Any décor she’ll easily inhabit!

 

She’s been at home in books, TV, and a movie,

Now you can find her chasing away the darkness

In two different sizes, cool and cutesy,

This dimmable lamp has LED sharpness.

 

Minimalist style with a touch of fancy,

Bruna’s bunny is taking Babesta by storm;

Miffy cannot but make you smile and be happy,

and your child’s room it will quickly transform!

Furniture Friday: Follow the rainbow to Kalon Studios

kalon caravan rainbow

Adding color to your crib is totally fresh and that’s why we are mad about Kalon Studios’ caravan crib. With lots of colors to choose from, this is truly a custom crib, and hence  furniture worth waiting for. The pot of gold at the end, well that’s your baby.

Cleaning up Copenhagen

 

Vipp-Mega-Bin-1

As part of Copenhagen’s commitment to be the cleanest city in Europe by 2015, and – since big goals require huge measures – a giant (it’s constructed in 8:1 scale!) Vipp pedal bin has been installed as a reminder to Danes to think about where their garbage goes.(As seen in Design Milk)This mega pedal bin weighs in at 1763.7 lbs. with a volume of 3,800 liters.  That’s enough to hold 25,000 broken bottles or 478.8 dirty diapers.  Americans, on average, go through 7.6 billion lbs. of diapers per year, which translates to 3.45 billion liters; so it would take 907,869 bins of similar volume to hold all the diapers we go through per year.

These Danes are definitely excited about keeping garbage like that off the streets…

Oeuf cribs and changers are due to get a price hike starting on the 15th, so it’s a great idea to snap yours up today or tomorrow if you’re in the market. Choose from the Classic Crib (a favorite style for its simplicity and adorable toddler conversion), Sparrow Crib (super stylish) and Rhea Crib (the new, more modern version of the Robin). Oeuf also recently introduced the Merlin dresser, in 3 drawers or 6 drawers. It lives up to its name, as it matches all of Oeuf’s crib options, due to its modular design. Change the pulls & the feet and voila, it’s a perfect companion for any crib style.

Elyse Kroll Interiors Gives Babesta Threads a Cool Makeover

Just wanted to give a shout out to Elyse Kroll Interiors–the mastermind behind the Babesta Threads revamp. We can’t say enough about Elyse – and we give her our highest recommendation if you’re looking to spruce up your home or professional space. We didn’t even know we were going to revamp Babesta until Elyse came in (after we tapped her to do the consultation we “won” at the PS 234 school auction). Her ideas were great and we could see her vision in our first conversation. Our interest was immediately piqued and we decided to just go for it. Our contractor was surprised (“we’re revamping the space, are you free next week!?”) but somehow it all came together. (OK I say somehow, but really it was all of us working round the clock). We love her creativity and resourcefulness coupled with a great ability to listen and understand our business needs and come up with attractive solutions to address each one. She definitely captured the Babesta vibe, helping us make our miniature space much more useful while keeping it super-cool. Some of the highlights: The orange and grey accent walls, the framed t-shirt wall, the center locker-tables, the back counter made out of kitchen cabnitry. We look forward to working with Elyse again-She rocks!
