Best Interiors Product Design (Furniture) | Junior Design Awards 2019

WINNER: GOLD BEST INTERIORS PRODUCT DESIGN (FURNITURE)

WHO: Anita’s House Poppy Playpen

Advertisement

WHAT: A cross between a crib and a playpen, designed with three levels to protect adults’ backs. A multi-tasking piece of furniture that works as a crib, moses basket, dog guard, daybed and playpen. Bespoke organic mattresses and bedding are available as optional extras, providing a unique solution for day-time naps.

WHY: As the judges chatted, we decided this playpen was like a luxurious double bed for babies! Not only did we love the fact that unlike so many playpens this one looks attractive and friendly but that babies could really stretch out if they were playing or having an impromptu nap. We also thought it would be a great cot for anyone who had twins and wanted them to play and nap alongside each other in comfort. Our judges said:

This is such a great idea and will be a great solution for anyone who needs a safe place to pop their baby while they have to prepare a meal, grab a bottle or any myriad of tasks that are hard to do carrying a baby.

Love the design of this and it seems really sturdy. Perfect if baby needs tummy time or somewhere to play safely.

WINNER: SILVER BEST INTERIORS PRODUCT DESIGN (FURNITURE)

WHO: SnüzKot Bed

WHAT: A stylish and innovative cot bed with a contemporary feel that grows with your child from birth to 10 years. Available in 25 styles and colours to fit in with any décor.

WHY: We loved this incredibly versatile cot that adapts through four phases of a child’s development. Transforming from cot bed to transition mode (with one side removed) to toddler bed and finally to junior bed, this bed will last until your child is ten years old! As well as the fact that this piece of furniture has great ethical credentials  – less furniture to buy, means less environmental impact  – we thought the design was fantastic. Our judges commented:

The variety of styles and the way you can adapt your choice of model with so many different finishes and colours, makes this almost a bespoke piece. Fantastic design!
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
Such a brilliant idea to make a bed that lasts for ten years of a child’s life. Perfect for eco-conscious, stylish parents.

WINNER: BRONZE BEST INTERIORS PRODUCT DESIGN (FURNITURE)

WHO: Great Little Trading Company Growing Activity Table

WHAT: A play table for toddlers with a paper roll holder on one side to encourage drawing and painting across the whole width of the table. As children grow, you can adjust the legs to make the table taller so it can then be used as a desk or a table for school projects. Eventually, the paper roll can be removed to make a coffee table.

WHY: Our panel all agreed that giving a child their own space to be creative was a fantastic idea and the luxury of not having to clear away projects from the kitchen table or the coffee table is something that both kids and adults would approve of. Our judges loved the idea that the paper roll meant there was an endless scope for creativity without kids having to ask their parents to find them a sheet of paper. Points were also given for the simple clean design of the play table and the fact that it can grown with your child. Our judges said:

This is such a well thought out piece of children’s furniture. It's wipeable surface, solid construction and soft corners makes it the perfect addition to any playroom, although it is so stylish it could happily sit in any room of the house.
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
I would have absolutely loved to have had a table like this when I was a kid. Endless rolls of paper to draw and paint on and a table for creative projects is the dream.
