Revealing the WINNERS of this year's Junior Design Awards...
Junior Design Awards 2017 for Best Children's Interiors Brand
There's nothing we love more than perusing fabulous interiors websites and luckily our panel of judges feel exactly the same way. Here's our pick of the best kids home stores ever...
THE PLATINUM AWARD FOR BEST CHILDREN'S INTERIOR BRAND... BOBBY RABBIT
Inspired by a much-loved childhood soft toy, online store Bobby Rabbit was conceived as one stop shop for magical home wares and in the owner's words "toys to cherish when small, and remember with a smile when tall.". With that lovely premise in mind, Nicky King has brought together a wonderful edit of stunning buys that really do trigger the imagination and help to build a world of wonder and enchantment in nurseries and playrooms. Our judges loved the mix of quirky felt animals, simple scandinavian style furniture and beautiful wooden toys and felt that there really is something for everyone here.
THE JOINT GOLD AWARD FOR BEST CHILDREN'S INTERIOR BRAND...NO FRED
This Danish interiors brand is ultra cool. We cannot get enough of their inspirational Instagram feed and pour over their beautiful printed wallpaper, quirky wooden furniture and gorgeous textiles on a daily basis. Stocking a pared back edit of highly covetable pieces, this is the place to go for stand out items that really make a huge impact on your space and add something truly original, fun and uplifting. A Junior favourite.
THE JOINT GOLD AWARD FOR BEST CHILDREN'S INTERIOR BRAND... A LITTLE LOVELY COMPANY
We are huge fans of A Little Lovely Company's incredibly cute wares that add an instant touch of charm and whimsy to any kid's room, not to mention any adult spaces with a yen for pretty kitsch. Their tactile night lights in chubby cloud, star and fruit shapes, gorgeous cushions, cups and wall art are all adorable with a capital A and make us want to live in a pastel world where every object has a smiley face and a touch of magic. We're pretty sure it's possible if we just keep shopping...
THE SILVER AWARD FOR BEST CHILDREN'S INTERIOR BRAND... FABELAB
This textile based company is all about creating soft, sumptuous surroundings that stimulate the imagination and create and cosy safe environment for kids to play in. Fabric crowns, bedding, bunting, swaddles and bags are just a fraction of their incredible range or products that all feature their stunning colour combinations and dreamy prints. We particularly love their star strewn dream blankets, and cloud cushions which would lend a touch of magic to any bedroom.
THE BRONZE AWARD FOR BEST CHILDREN'S INTERIOR BRAND... OLLI ELLA
This British born homewares label has become a global success story and our judges were surprised and impressed by their diverse selection of stock that ranges from nursing chairs to picnic baskets and beyond. Soft muted colours with the odd uplifting burst of sunshine yellow and turquoise, natural fibres and a general laid back summery feel informs this collection which is aimed at children and families who want storage that is as beautiful as it is functional, soft linens and decor that adds a warm cosy glow.
