Kids' Furniture

There's been a lot happening, and I have a dozen drafts sitting on my desktop, but I don't feel like posting anything on my blog - various reasons. Anyway.

We're looking for a table-chair for Puttachi, who is totally into colouring and drawing now. We looked at various showrooms in Bangalore - the usual furniture places, kiddie places like Childspace and Kids Kouch - but we haven't found anything suitable. The last option we have is getting it made to order, but before that, we want to see if there's anything suitable available in the market.

So if you know of any place that offers no-nonsense, no-frills, reasonably priced, sensible, sturdy and safe furniture for children, please let me know. You could also mail me, but if you write in the comments section, it might benefit others too. Thank you, omniscient reader!

Have a lovely time - and I guess I'll see you in the new year. Love and best wishes to you all!

I saw one at Janata Bazaar, Jayanagar. I didn't check the price because I didn't intend to buy. I usually buy kids' things there and I am happy with the quality so far and the price is reasonable too. I know, an unusual choice, but I prefer this over pricey shops which are pricey because they are tagged as 'kids' shops.

Maya Organic used to have good stuff, but they're closed down :( Will get back if I think of anything.

I suggest you to try the shops around Infantry Road and Shivaji Nagar, you will find lot of shops which are primarily focused on selling furniture's of all types.

My suggestion is Infantry road too. Also I saw some reasonable ones at baby shops in HSR. They are not your high end shops just regualar shops.

Try Vividha (http://vividha.in/). I have never bought stuff from here but the the shop looks attractive :)
Maya Organic furniture is available at Home Stop, Magrath Road.

My nephew and niece have study table from Godrej Interio. Do check it out. Very good finish, plenty of storage space and big desk. But not sure if it would suit little Puttachi. It costs around Rs. 12500.
For my daughter am just using the small desk given by my niece. These are easily available at the road side which may be less than Rs. 300 I guess.

There is a place called Quetzel on Sarjapur rd. I've never been there, but have seen stuff bought there by some friends. Good.

Thank you all so much for your suggestions!! I haven't had the opportunity to check out any of them yet, but will let you know how it works out.

We got an activity desk to Siddhanth. It has a foldable table with a chalk board on it. IKEA offers this. Check it out, Kidskouch markets this...
