A date for the film buffs: London Film Festival17/10/2014

With London Film Festival one of the biggest and most glamorous events in the filmgoer's calendar hitting the capital and creating much buzz, we are super excited to let you know that the IO Bunk Pod has found a starring role in a new, sci-fi thriller 'Terminally Happy' featuring Alastair Mackenzie and Emma Campbell-Jones. We are giggling with excitement and can't wait to see the film!

As Seen on LivingEtc, VogueBambini, MarieClaire Enfants, this clever bunk pod can be configured in many ways to suit your needs – use as a single bunk bed that houses a self-contained workstation and shelving unit beneath; a standard bunk bed that sleeps two; or as two standalone single beds.

Crafted from smooth, sustainable and sturdy Scandinavian birchwood and laminated for extra resilience, the Bunk Pod exemplifies the typical IO Kids Design aesthetic – gentle curves and uncluttered clean lines.

Available in White and funky Yellow, this is a piece of investment for your child`s bedroom. For a more economical bunk bed, a new gorgeous White-Washed finish has been presented and launched at Design Junction in September 2014. 

For the IO Bunk Pod White-Washed, the Scandinavian Birch Plywood is naturally treated in water based white pigmented lacquer exposing the grain of wood. The natural look will fit any decor.

Design Junction - Thank You!24/09/2014

It`s been an amazing week at Design Junction. Thank you to all visitors. Our Lessmore collection of cardboard design pieces has been well received. The eye-turner was of course our lounge X2 Chair in our new white-washed finish. Together with the Swedish soft design of the Leaf Lamp, we created a relax area everybody enjoyed.  

The More Light Shelving modular system has been a success as well. The one in display is now in one lovely child bedroom in Kensington.

The More Bench attracted some good attention and lots of people were commenting that it would be great to use it as a side table too.

Thank you so much! Here a few snapshots via Instagram:

Cardboard Chairs & Lighting for Huckletree02/06/2014

E-Side is proud to have supplied some gorgeous eco design pieces to Huckletree, a new co-working space in Clerkenwell, the first SKA-certified in UK. 

Huckletree office space, which opened its doors last month (April 2014) in Clerkenwell London (UK) is purported to be the only commercial place, thus far, to be SKA-certified; that is the official benchmark for ‘good practice’ measures within the built environment. Outfits must satisfactorily demonstrate efficiency in design – from low emissions, waste and water usage to the promotion of physical well-being through eco materials and intelligent design in order to qualify for this strict accreditation.

The opening of Huckletree in the bustling heart of London’s ‘Tech City’ signifies a new era for workspaces that puts eco, sustainability and workers’ well-being at its heart.

Gorgeous Kids Bedroom 24/04/2014

This is the story of a girl and a little boy sharing their bedroom in a North London house. pink or blue, blue or pink, let`s have sand! 

The Perludi Amber in the Sky is a gorgeous clever design bunk bed ideal for siblings sharing a bedroom as well as an extra bed for sleepover and guests.

When not in use the lower bunk can be used as a play area or den.  

Standing at only 135cm, Amber in the Sky is lower than usual loft or bunk beds so children can easily climb up the in-built ladder and their parents can easily read to their kids or kiss them goodnight on the upper bunk. 

The neutral greyish tone of Sand is a soothing modern and on trend shade which sets well against the dark wooden floor. The soft, fleecy Loden fabric - innovatively laminated on the birchwood - adds a luxurious cosy finish.

Image was kindly shared by one of our fantastic customer.

Amber in the Sky by Perludi is available in Sand, Orange and Gray. For more information click here

A bit of inspiration...and warm30/01/2014

We have just received some gorgeous new images of our soft brushed cotton organic blankets and we could not resist to share them with you. 

Black, brown, maybe they are not your first choice of colors for a toddler room but I am sure when you see the image below you can visualize it better.

We love the new soft brown hazelnut color of the organic Circus Bear blanket (coming soon...). This is a nursery blanket, cot size 75 x 100 cm, but you can really keep it on your sofa to warm up your feet or simply wrap it around your shoulders and still enjoy it even when your child has grown out of it. (I keep one in the car when travelling!)

We love bamboo, the warm colour of this wood is just perfect for the modern home - not too dark (old style) and not too light (Ikea style). We showed you in other occasions how black can be fun for a child bedroom but we must admit, our best seller color of Lilly chair and Geos desk is still red. 

 

Circus Bear FabGoose blanket and Geos Desk Lilly Chair Kid WeDoWood 

We are still much in the winter mood here...with the organic blanket Greenland Gang . This is a larger size blanket of 120x150 cm so you can easily snuggle in with extra confort. Available at the moment in Marin/Sand. More colors to come.
