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.

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

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.
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.
Warm and Cosy Ilaria Innocenti cotton and cashmere throws are featured in the February issue of House Beautiful. Great winter warmer for your sitting room and bedroom.

The award winning dolls, conceived by German designer Alexa Lixfeld, were inspired following a working visit to the Sri Lankan city of Kurunegala. Here, the local community’s desire to build a new school that would be accessible to all and less fortunate children was made apparent, and thus a charitable project driven by the children themselves to make this dream a reality was soon borne.
Lixfeld briefed the local school kids to draw their favourite characters; six of the most creative and visually striking designs were then selected for unaltered production into soft doll form, to be created and hand sewn by the women of the local community.
The dolls are faithful reproductions of the original drawings, each with their own aesthetic idiosyncrasies perfectly preserved – from six fingers on a hand to dental braces (only a drawn gun has been removed in one of the final designs). The hand woven, 100% cotton fabric used for the dolls have been hand dyed using only certified non-toxic dyes before individually hand sewn in Kurunegala.
The six dolls that comprise the Me And My Doll collection retain the names originally bequeathed to them by their young creators: introducing A Doll, Ikesh, Sabana, Pasan, Imesha and Hansitha.
This unique project is also supported by the Selyn Socio-Economic Development Foundation of Sri Lanka, which ensures sound working conditions are maintained during and beyond the production of these dolls and that 50% of the sales revenue are directed back to the community to finance infrastructural development including the new school building scheme.

If ever you needed proof that contemporary cardboard furniture can look cool, edgy and aesthetically impactful in retail environments, then make a trip to Verger – a concept store located in Italy’s fashion capital, Milan.
The minimal interior rich in natural light and decorated in cosy woody hues, welcome locals with traditional Italian cuisine while at the same time, quite literally, browsing through the latest season’s fashion lines. Verger, a restaurant-cum-bar-cum-designer boutique, offers a refreshingly differentretail space. From a design perspective, the experience is genuinely unifying. Verger’s vast open planinterior facilitates and indeed invites its inhabitants to come and go freely between the store’s varying areas.
This natural physical flow of spatial energy has been achieved by the store’s use of cardboard modular shelving throughout. Designed by Italian Architect Giorgio Caporaso, this innovative piece of honeycombed cardboard furniture not only displays the store’s statement fashion pieces effectively but works as a space divider too. Its backless composition enables the spectator to stillsee freely across a larger space, helping to maintain the area’s flow of natural light.
The ‘skin’ of the modular shelves itself are also interchangeable, so the overall look can be switched according to seasons, trends and complementary colour palettes – ideal for the ever-changing retail space – while structurally, each simple modular cube can be built up and arranged to create individual, complex and visually striking structures upon which to showcase merchandise.
Caporaso’s ‘More Light’ exemplifies cardboard furniture design at its most versatile and best. Strong, light and completely recyclable, it is just one of a selection of many stylish contemporary cardboard furnishings available at E-Side for the commercial and retail space.
