Isn’t this cushion great? It’s called the Secret Man and it’s by a Danish company called Lucky Boy Sunday. The company’s designers, who are both called Camilla (Kerschen and Ebdrup since you ask) make knitted toys and soft furnishings inspired by, but not reserved exclusively for, the world of children.
Their cushions, including this one which is called Favourite Place, come in a variety of colours and they also make round ones and abstract patterns.
I rather love the five fingered hand in the image above. The best place to buy them here is from Molly Meg. Subtitled a “design shop for children”, it’s a great place for parents who feel that design sneaked out of the back door as soon as the baby was carried through the front.
I know the argument is that they grow so quickly you don’t want to spend fortunes on things when they are small, but during these series I have tried to focus on items that will either multi-task (shape-changing beds) or are in a style that they won’t grow out of too fast so they can build up a collection of items that they love and that are part of their lives.
The store was set up by Molly-Meg Price, a former childrenswear designer and trend forecaster. The collection includes miniature classics, like the Bertoia chair in the top picture, as well as pieces from new and emerging designers.
Go and have a browse, there’s lots of good stuff and I’m sure we’ll be returning to the site again.
