Store owners Ralph and Michelle Montemurro are experts at merging modern style with kid-friendly decor. Their own Toronto home, where they live with their four kids, is an example of how to make room for children without sacrificing your own sense of style.
In their store, Ralph and Michelle sell the Cubino Chair and Loveseat, a soft, cushy set that's simple and stylish enough to leave out in the living room. It's also affordably priced at $109 - $139.
Ralph and Michelle bought their family-sized sectional sofa at IKEA and replaced the legs to make it look more custom. This is the Karlstad, which starts around $800 for fabric and $900 for leather. For more options, see this post.
In addition to children's furniture, they sell several gliders and recliners that are sleek enough to pass for modern armchairs. In their own living room, they have the $1,195 Grano Glider Recliner.
Bright Rugs and Pillows
Coffee and Occasional Tables
Furniture with rounded corners is more kid-friendly, since it minimizes the sharp edges that a kid can bump into. This Botanist Bench by Orange 22 is made of heavy-duty powder coated steel and costs $1,075.
