My older son is now 8 and a half and I notice that on one hand he is still pretty childish but on the other he would like to be so cool and independent. He would go to bed with his favourite little bear, hang his favourite drawings around him and then only the sophisticated black shirt is an option for a day outfit. Do you recognise this ? For me it is sort of in between phase of life , which I think can be called - pre-teen. His room is then also a bit of mix of things from different ages and that’s what we also tried to imagine in our studio. Pre-teenager’s room with Rafa-kids’ black K desk and X stool. You can see his lego boxes, which he absolutely loves, pillows and cuddly, and a bit of messy space, because he doesn’t care so much….
We believe the K desk can be used for many years to come, because it is such a sophisticated furniture piece, for kids of any age.
Special thanks to Paulina Arcklin for this inspiring day and styling the pictures and to Maike Timmerman, for this beautiful wooden snake / designfuersheim.
