Furnished Play

Consumers look to furnishings that double as children's toys

Implications - Seeking to maintain a contemporary aesthetic, parents are turning to carefully concealed toys for design practicality. Opting for furniture pieces that double as doll houses and see-saws, consumers use dual-purpose furniture as a way to offer kids a source of play without compromising the overall aesthetic of the home, but instead, enhancing it. This shift indicates that cohesive design has become a top-of-mind priority for homeowners, even those with kids.
