From Animal-Inspired Dining Sets to Colorfully Youthful Furniture

Taking after the shapes of princess carriages, equipment in a mechanic's shop and adorable animals, these novelty furniture sets for kids are all about creating a sense of imagination and whimsy at home.

Although kids and babies will quickly outgrow the styles and sizes of a furniture set, designs from Dot and Cross have the ability to grow from a crib to a couch, while something like the Olla Building Blocks set actually encourages kids to put together their own chairs and tables when they are old enough to. Similarly, the Dice Furniture collection by Torafu Architects is puzzle-like in that it can be rotated to take on different forms. With the ability to adapt, furniture pieces like these make valuable long-lasting investments for new parents.
