The Child Child Chair is a combination of two child chairs (one for a baby, the other for the older child) and a small table. It's a great solution to sit two siblings together. They can eat, play and discuss at the same level. The table comes in 5 colours and is available in shops in the Netherlands and in the USA.
More amazing things I found via Design*Sponge. It's an amazing birdie mobile made by Spool Sewings. The pattern is now available as a downloadable pdf in their sidebar. They also have really nice children's tops and dresses patterns and they sell lovely bright coloured fabrics to go with it. No excuse for not using your sewing machine this Summer.

"The virtual rooms are the work of New York City interior decorator Jan Eleni and Boston architectural designer Matthew Fickett. The bedrooms were all created to fit the individual child's specific interests, like the room for the "Train Fanatic" below: For more info ideas on how to decorate the nursery check here!
