Rich or Reasonable: Graphic Hampers

It’s been a while since we’ve posted a “Rich or Reasonable” comparison but during my last trip to Ikea, this one totally jumped out at me. I’d been looking for a new hamper for my youngest for a few months now without getting excited about anything, but when I saw the Plumsa with its black and white pattern and leather handles for $11!!!, this hopped into my shopping cart. My older son already has the Ferm Living Trace Basket ($115) as his hamper and loves it, so this was an easy comparison.

I do love the Trace Basket from Ferm Living, and they have a few additional patterns and sizes you may love as well. It’s nice that you can coordinate all their bathroom accessories.

The Ferm Living basket is a little wider with longer handles, but the two hampers really do compare very well against each other. For $11, I recommend you run to Ikea right now and grab a Plumsa!

SISSY + MARLEY for ducduc

Looking through SISSY + MARLEY‘s portfolio of kids’ spaces, you may notice that they’re long time fans of ducduc, so you may not be surprised to discover their collaboration on an incredible new playroom furniture collection.

The showstopper of the collection is the Marley House Closet. The dramatic storage pieces can be customized with different finishes and start at $1700 a piece (three are shown here).

The collection also includes the Myles Desk ($495) Logan Stool ($250), and Jasper Toy Storage ($880 with desk and $385 without).

Many of SISSY + MARLEY’s kids rooms feature decorative book displays and I have a feeling they’ll be using their Ryan Book Ledges from now on ($645 for set of 3 classic shelves as shown).

You can also add a little extra fun with the generously sized Sebastian Chalkboard ($725) or the Sebastian Corkboard ($795).

Mix and match these pieces in your space to achieve playroom perfection!

Tree Bookcase in More Fresh Colors

The Nursery Works Tree Bookcase was a huge hit when it first came out and now it’s available in three new colors to make it even more versatile. Now in Sage Green, Blush Pink, and Cloud Gray, it will fit in many more modern nurseries.

At $900, it’s a show-stopping centerpiece for a spectacular kids space.

Baby Keepsake Box

Saving precious baby mementos can be clutter-free and organized with the Baby Keepsake Box from Savor.

My First Cubby From Little Partners

It’s amazing how preschool teachers are able to manage each day with a classroom full of tots when you’re at home tearing our hair out with just one or two. How do they do it? A lot of it is routine and allowing kids to do as much as they can on their own. You can bring home that type of preschool routine and encourage independent responsibility with the My First Cubby from Little Partners.

Cubby_Lifestyle_sitting-800x800

With six open storage areas and hooks, kids will store their own belongings and will be able to transition more independently from home to going out and back to home again.

This doesn’t mean you’ll never have to tell them 20 times to put their shoes on, but at least they’ll know where their shoes are?

Flisat Kids Collection from Ikea

Shall I go so far as to say these are destined to become Ikea classics or even collectibles? Maybe I’ll reserve such strong judgement for after I see them in person, but Ikea has definitely hit the mark for the modern kids room with their Flisat collection.

I am most excited about the dollhouse / wall shelf. I love that it can be used with the dollhouse furniture (which we already have) or it can be hung and used as storage.

The children’s desk can be adjusted to three different heights and you can add Trofast storage boxes to hold your art supplies. Buy a few of the wall storage ledges to create a simple and beautiful library wall.

The children’s table is also designed to be used with Trofast storage and it makes beautiful basic play table.
