Brooklyn, New York based architect and furniture designer, Roberto Gil, is no stranger to most people who frequent shelter blogs. But somehow, he slipped under my radar until just the other day when I came across a feature on his loft bed designs. I was intrigued, so I clicked through to his website, www.casakids.com and I was definitely NOT disappointed. In fact, I knew immediately I had to share his concepts here.
Some of his early work includes the chair above, complete with storage drawer for crayons, knick knacks, whatever your child might dream up. But it is his devotion to entire children’s spaces that really caught my eye. Casa Kids offers several loft and bunk bed options that are truly unique and thoroughly thought through (say that 5 times fast).
Below is one of their custom installations in a girl’s bedroom in Manhattan. I love the function of the piece – even the stair treads are drawers – and the overhanging shelf to use as a nightstand is the perfect final detail.
I highly encourage you to visit the website for Casa Kids and look around at some of the work they have done. You will truly be inspired.
Be honest – doesn’t this blow your dorm room loft out of the water?
