For every challenge being a parent entails, there are a million reasons to love the role. But, when it comes to decorating your home, it can sometimes feel like one endless challenge – either you get what you want, or give your child what they want. And while it’s tempting to indulge your child’s whims, we all know how quickly their minds change, which means that the investment in that themed bedroom can quickly feel like a battle lost. Of course, much of what you would like to use to decorate as a parent can feel boring or uninspiring for your children. Thankfully, there is a solution, one that you and your children will love.
Nico & Yeye
Meet Nico & Yeye, the super cool children’s furniture brand that is inspiring families to rethink how they decorate their homes and children’s spaces. The antidote to an odd collection of mismatched pieces and a hodgepodge of different design elements, Nico & Yeye is as thoughtful as it is fun. Stylish and functional, each piece is designed for both kids and parents, bridging the gap between two furnishing worlds that often contradict.
Handcrafted Children’s Furniture
Melissa Soto, the founder of the brand and mother to Nico & Yeye (Nicolas and Celeste), worked for many years as a designer in the children’s industry, giving her the background she needed to hit the ground running with her very own label. Dedicated to her craft, Nico & Yeye offers an impressive selection of children’s bedroom furniture, playroom pieces, storage solutions, and art that stimulates creativity. And, the best part, is that each piece can grow with your child – every small step of the way. Handcrafted and made-to-order by their factory specifically for you and your family. Parents drawn to the Nico & Yeye brand have an affinity for quality craftsmanship, modern lines, and bold colours.
Nico & Yeye Bedroom
The Minimo Twin Bed, which is a firm favourite of Melissa’s, for the “simple lines and elegant, compact design”, has a variety of colour options, including Pacific Blue, Mint, and a cheerful Yellow. Another great design is the Domo Zen Twin Bed. Its under-bed drawers make for smart storage while the playhouse-like frame allows your child to imagine something new each and every day. Crafted from 100% wood and available in either maple or walnut, there are an impressive twenty colour combinations for you to customise.
Other popular storage solutions from Nico & Yeye’s line include the fifties inspired Lukka Dresser, which is crafted from sustainably harvested walnut or maple wood. Surprisingly spacious for children’s furnishings, it’s easy to see how a piece like this can grow with your children. The matching Lukka Console is another must-have storage piece and a great place to store everything, from bedtime stories to found playground treasures.
The Poco Table, another favourite from Nico & Yeye’s Furniture Collections, would make a beautiful addition to any child’s playroom, creating the perfect spot for afternoon tea parties or after school playdates. Available in two sizes and twenty colour combinations allowing you to make a statement. Pair with the cute Lola Stools, which offer a whimsical twist on a classic design, and your child won’t be the only one who feels indulged.
“We have big plans for Nico & Yeye,” says Melissa, who alludes to adding bedding and decor sometime in the near future. A business with a real heart, Nico & Yeye is as dedicated to gorgeous designs and quality craftsmanship as it is to giving back to children in local communities. “We have some fun plans to make that happen,” Melissa says – and, when you look at just how much she has accomplished already, we don’t doubt that for a moment.
