Arting around - Children's furniture

Making the most of available resources, the Child's family have harnessed everything from air to timber to form their child friendly wares. Initially focusing on the manufacture of hand painted inflatable units, a small human addition to the family necessitated a foray into painting children's furniture, later becoming a fully fledged new product line driven by orders from friends sighting the original pieces.

Childrens furniture

Custom designed to suit parents and their offspring, each piece is lovingly refurbished if it is existing furniture or created anew using local furniture suppliers for the base product then building up the desired design through themed child centric handpainting. Brushed into each stroke is Resene quality. Exclusively used across the product line, Resene paint was selected following focused research as it "offered the most child friendly, waterborne paints, which of course are non toxic and dry quickly". The solid colours are protected with Resene urethane for maximum durability and system integrity.

Functional furniture splashed with colour to kindle smallfry imaginations.
