We all need our own space to retreat to; whether that’s for a little rest and relaxation, to take a break from a busy day or for some well-earned sleep. And children are no different. Our children grow up so quickly and before you know it, they have outgrown their Disney or Marvel character themed bedrooms and are looking for something a little more elegant and timeless.
The Painted Furniture Company has the perfect solution with its brand new E2 Kids Collection, which is designed to see them through from those early years to teens and beyond.
Beautifully crafted, the E2 collection is not only well designed and well made, but it’s well considered too. Specially created for children and teenagers, the new furniture collection is built in the same UK workshops as the Painted Furniture Company’s popular Oxford and Island Breeze ranges and offers the same quality in terms of construction and build.
There are bedside chests in various forms such as a large one-door open shelf bedside design as well as one-door one-drawer versions and two-drawer styles; chests of drawers in different heights and widths with a range of drawer options; wardrobes, desks, storage boxes, bed frames and bookcases too.
And for a colour to complement or contrast with existing or new interior schemes, there are 16 shades to choose from including Lily White, Sea Mist, Moondust Grey and Cotton. The palette of colours features modern neutral tones perfect for boys and girls with hints of softly subtle natural tones as well as shades that are more striking for added impact.
Alongside the wide range of furniture styles and sizes on offer, there are also bespoke sizes that can be created for especially large or small bedrooms.
The E2 collection of children’s bedroom furniture is so practical as the bed designs not only provide the perfect place for a great night’s sleep but they also pack in plenty of storage too. The unique and unusual designs feature clever cupboard space at the foot of the bed as well as open shelving and drawers on the side. Ideal for tidying away toys, books and teddy bears before bedtime.
The Mid Sleeper Bed shown above and below measures W1074 x H1228 x D2080mm and is available in the 16 colour options to complement all the furniture within the collection. The two-drawer bedside unit shown below meanwhile is ideal for keeping night-time essentials such as a reading book, alarm clock and table lamp within easy reach. Once your child grows too old for a sleeper style, there is also a single bed frame that creates a more grown-up look and allows you to change the design without having to re-do the entire room.
Adam Browne, MD at the company explains, ‘We are so thrilled to be introducing our new E2 children’s furniture collection at a time when our homes have become so much more important. Children need a calming space to call their own where they can sleep, relax, read, chat with friends or even do their schoolwork, so we have designed practical pieces that provide function as well as a timeless look that will see them through to their teenage years.’
Good storage is key to keeping the floor area clear and it’s never too early to teach children to tidy up at the end of the day. The Painted Furniture Company has a huge choice of storage solutions within the new E2 collection with bedside units, chests of drawers, wardrobes, storage boxes, tallboys, bookcases, desks and beds with built-in storage, ideal for smaller spaces.
The Blanket Box below comes with a soft close lid so you won’t need to worry about trapping fingers while the Four-Drawer Tallboy measures W600 x H1042 x D420mm and is perfect for t-shirts, shorts, trousers and other items that don’t need to be hung up.
For clothes that do require hanging, the E2 collection also includes four sizes of wardrobe to suit all sizes of bedroom.
A good desk is a wise investment for a children’s bedroom, especially if there isn’t much quiet space around the rest of the home for concentration and study. The great thing about the E2 Single or Double Pedestal Desks is that they can also double up as dressing tables and will see your child through those early school years to secondary school, college and beyond. The designs come with three and six drawers respectively so there is plenty of space for books, laptop, tablet and stationery and with the matching stool and bookcase, there’s no excuse for missed homework ever again!
The Painted Furniture Company is proud to be hand building its furniture here the UK, keeping traditional hand crafting techniques alive and more relevant than ever. As well as the brand new E2 range for children, there are also five further bedroom collections to choose from with paint palettes to soothe the soul and furniture options to suit every style and size of space.
