Avlia – children’s furniture in the shapes of farm animals

Avlia – Furniture System for Children

Avlia is a Furniture System for Children in the shapes of farm animals that can be used as both toys and functional pieces of furniture.

Nataša Njegovanović created a desk shaped like a cow, a toy chest in the shape of a pig, stools made to look like cats and dogs, and a pencil box designed to look like a chicken.

The simple design leaves enough room for children to use their imaginations and turn the pieces into new things that bring their world of pretend to life. I love how the animals became design objects and still appeal to children and their needs. Not too cute, not too polished – just great furniture that is lovely to look at and interesting!

Made mostly from Slavonian oak, the toys were inspired by a time when children played with wooden toys and when nature and animals were the main sources of entertainment for children.’

Nataša wanted to create a counter-offer to encourage the natural creativity of our children. Living in a world where electronic games and toys dominate. All the pieces together set the scene for games yet to be discovered.

Avlia – Furniture System for Children is allowing our little ones to invent their own games and stories. The collection draws upon the Croatian village in which all of the pieces were created, promoting the tradition and simple aesthetic of the region it hails from.
