Children's Rooms - Trends
The proverb says that you don’t discuss the tastes. However, children's furniture, like other products on the market, are subject to certain marketing trends.
The most popular trend is still the color (pine, honey) but it also gives way to "coffee with milk" which, combined with colorful, nice themes (bear, elephant, frog) gives the baby cot a unique design.
We hope that this mini-guide/tutorial will help you in making the right choice of tasteful and safe children's furniture.
