Why we Love Oeuf NYC Children’s Furniture

 

Oeuf NYC Furniture first came to our attention in 2012 when we were researching décor for our first child. Looking back, it was the most excited we had ever been as parents, and we began googling unique children’s furniture, and modern children’s furniture. But we couldn’t really find what we wanted in terms of a full collection of nursery furniture ie. Cot, matching drawer and wardrobe. It had to be classy. It had to be unique, and in our mind, it had to look modern. I know the nursery is tucked away from public eye, but we had a modern theme going through our entire 4 bedroom house, and we didn’t want to wander away from that. It was just how we liked things. and then suddenly, we came across Oeuf NYC.

Mrs Mighetto - The Forgotten Tivoli collection

Mrs Mighetto - The Forgotten Tivoli collection

Mrs Mighetto is the World renowned master at Children’s watercolour prints. Mighetto collections have adorned the walls for children’s nurseries, children’s bedrooms and playrooms for years, and each year a new Limited edition Mrs Mighetto collection is launched, with a great deal of secrecy and flare. It is worth the wait. We have been carefully selected as a Mrs Mighetto approved retailer. That is quite an honour for Diddle Tinkers UK, as Mrs Mighetto is very particular about who they choose to market and sell their prints. Diddle Tinkers have a National reputation which fits perfectly alongside the Mrs Mighetto ethos. Good quality products, handmade, and from ethical supply chains. Diddle Tinkers have sold hundreds, if not thousands of Mrs Mighetto prints, and the New Mrs Mighetto Forgotten Tivoli collection is the very best et. The time to detail ratio is phenomenal, and it is clear to see that Mrs Mighetto herself has an attention to detail like no other children’s artist. Mrs Mighetto Prints are A3 in size and fit in most standard A3 frames. We like the black or white trimmed frames, as we just love that fine border it gives the watercolour prints.

British Love affair with Scandinavian furniture

British Love affair with Scandinavian furniture

For years we have looked to Scandinavia for latest fashion trends. But we ask why? 

The influence of Scandinavian design on children’s furniture has dated back to the mid 1950-s. A style that has passed through generations, and stood the test of time. Many authors have looked into the recent trends rising from Scandinavian countries, such as Denmark, Sweden and Norway (to name but a few). Is it the use of wood? Is it their brilliant use of the pale pallet which intrigues us? There is a famous quote by author Sara Norrman, who wrote Simply Scandinavian, in which she states “ you can decorate with any colour in a Scandinavian children’s bedroom, as long as its white”. She may have a point, but we believe it is the simple use of unique pale and neutral colours which we Brits have fallen for. Scandinavian children’s furniture is not new in the UK.

We have some exciting news

We have some exciting news

Its true, as seen on our Diddle Tinkers InstagramFacebook and Linkedin feeds this week, we are expecting baby number 3. We waited until all medical safeguarding tests were concluded before making the news public. But as a parent to 2 beautiful children already, not only did we find this news exciting, like many of our customers (we imagine) it came as a bit of a shock.

Learn while you Play with OYOY rugs

Its all about education through play in our household, and at many of the business meetings, and client discussion forums I attend throughout the year, this is a recurring theme during my chats with customers and likeminded clients. We all want the best for our children. Thats why we buy them gifts in the first place. When we discovered the OYOY educational rug collection, which included the OYOY World Rug and the OYOY adventure rug, our brain started to work overtime.
