Mod Mom Handmade toy boxes
July 22nd, 2011
I guess you can tell I am really taken with these! I have been looking for a unique new toy box and have been admiring these wonderful handmade pieces for a while now. They are designed by Mod Mom founder, Kiersten Hathcock, a stay-at-home mom turned self-taught furniture designer and builder. I love them all so much, I can’t decide which one I want. Above is her Maude Toy Box with Book Cubby with the blue bird. And then there’s her Owyn Toy box with the two leaves. Below are the Bertie Toy Box (with the red bird) and the Noah Owl Toy Box. It is so beautiful the way the leaves and animals are the covers – and the fit is impeccable. All of her designs are made from eco-friendly, sustainable Baltic birch plywood, finished with Eco-Var – safe for kids. She recently partnered with an Amish furniture manufacturer, so the heirloom quality construction techniques continue. All of these are available from a fabulous design website called Design Public. I first came across Design Public when I was looking for some baby bedding and have been going back ever since! Which one is your favorite?
