Last Friday I wrote about Fanny & Alexander, a wonderful store from Buenos Aires.  In that post I mentioned that I am visiting Argentina in January (so excited!).  I then got a lovely comment from one of my Argentinian readers and we began exchanging emails.  Sadly I won’t be able to meet her as I am not visiting the city she lives in but it’s been fun chatting to her.  That is one of my absolute favourite parts of writing this blog – hearing from you, my readers.  I have had contact with many people from across the globe because of this blog and I hope to meet some of them one day.  It was this Argentinian reader who told me about Krethaus and I was besotted.  Thank you Soledad for sharing this lovely store.

Krethaus are also from Buenos Aires and make furniture, cushions, bedding and rugs for kids and babies.  Their designs are simple with clean lines and muted colours.  I’m totally loving all those cushions… how cute is the red mustache one?  And that kids bed?  I love the simple yet dramatic headboard and the natural wood.  Using lots of natural materials throughout their creations all of Krethaus’ furniture is handmade making it even more special.  They describe their designs as having a ‘quiet elegance’ and I have to agree.  I am really loving discovering all these gorgeous stores from Buenos Aires and I shall be adding Krethaus to my list of places to visit when I am there.  I don’t think Krethaus ship internationally yet but you could always drop them a line and I’m sure they’ll help. 

P.S. Have you entered out Halloween giveaway?

In the past I’ve found some fabulous vintage furniture for kids but I haven’t had quite as much luck with the modern stuff.  Today I remembered a range of beautiful modern kids furniture that I had come across a while ago.  I’ve actually seen some of these pieces in a shop and they are even more beautiful than in the pictures.  This is the kind of eye-candy furniture that you’ll want in full view in your home, rather than tucked away in some obscure corner.

Made in Germany by Sirch, all the pieces are practical without being boring or bland in anyway.  I love the bright green and red felt against the natural wood and I love the simple, elegant, unfussy shape of this bench that is perfect for playing or reading.

This desk and chair combo has to be my favourite of the entire collection.  This is the piece I’ve seen in a shop and even my husband did a double take!  The design is minimal but stunning… the soft curves with the straight lines, the pale wood with the bold felt, the complimentary shapes of the chair and the desk come together to create a piece of beauty.  Also included in the collection is an equally covetable chair and stool combo.  To see all these and the rest of the range, head to smallable.com
