Scandinavia is a great source for Mid-Century Modern design, with a range of popular design classics. Now, these classics are also available for the little people in our life, children’s furniture that does not stand back in terms of functional sleek design and superb quality. Utzon Kids is the new Danish company behind the sleek lounger for children. Available in textiles to match your home decor and personal style, or in this supreme leather finish, as shown below.

Scandinavian children’s fashion and design is leading in terms of functionality but also sustainability. It’s deliberating (perhaps in particular as a mum of young children) to see how naturally integrated children are in all aspects of every day life in Scandinavia, as small individuals with their own personality. Many leading Scandinavian designers have chosen to focus on children and how to improve their living with functional and fun design.

For the most design conscious family, there’s a array of options of junior design classics to fit into the contemporary family home. Although it might not seem like it, to most Scandinavians its more about quality and functional design that will last for generations, not so much about trends and fashion.
