Mobilier Design Pour Enfants,


    Mobilier Design Pour Enfants, By Carole Daprey vintage for kids 

Harry Bertoia for Knoll 1952, You can purchase a vintage bertoia chair at Molly-Meg
Casalino Chair,  1970, designed by Alexander Begge . You can purchase a vintage Casalino chair at Molly-Meg

This is such a beautiful book by author Carole Daprey 

Carole has a passion for children’s vintage furniture and the history behind it. She uses her blog as a filing cabinet for her inspirational finds and ideas: “A drawer for this, a drawer serving as a place to store every detail open to others to share and to learn from.” 

Daprey's book focuses on children’s furniture design. Bringing together over 50 of the best and most representative pieces by the likes of Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Jean Prouvé.  Putting into perspective 60 years of design, from the 1920s onwards, placing each piece in an historical context.      I am hoping that it will be translated into English or one day I will learn French!
