    Made.com has always been a trusty go-to for fabulous homeware, but its recent range has got even the tiniest of tots standing to attention. Full of failsafe furniture, sturdy storage and adorable accessories, this collection of brilliant buys are a fast-track to making your children’s rooms the most stylish on the block. In fact, some of the pieces are so downright delectable that adults have already started requesting them in grown-up sizes. Fingers crossed!

    Philip Colbert range Made.com

    For fun pieces with plenty of attitude, don’t miss the dynamic collaboration with Philip Colbert. Creator of fashion-label-cum-pop-group The Rodnik Band, his irreverent, pop-art-inspired designs are packed with eye-popping primary colours and iconic prints, for a fun twist on otherwise practical furniture. Want to make a statement? This jaw-dropping shark chair, £449, is just the way to do it.

    Iso range Made.com

    Or if you’re more of a monochrome fan, then the black and white Iso range is a super-cool alternative. Keep your eye out for soft furnishings and art prints in minimal Scandi colours, for a clear-cut vibe that’s ideal for boys and girls alike. We love the cloud cushion – a steal at just £15, it’s an easy accessory that feels anything but childish. Try building the look with matching framed weather artworks and cotton bed sets, for a pared-back look that will stand the test of time.

    Linus range Made.com

    Any parent knows that when it comes to kids’ bedrooms, it’s nigh on impossible to have enough storage. From cute cabinets to practical wardrobes, the furniture in the new Linus range is our new favourite way to keep rooms looking spic and span whilst maintaining a cool, cohesive scheme. Our must-have piece? Check out the uber-practical range of beds, from £199 – complete with nifty under bed storage, lower bunks or trusty trundles, they’re the ultimate way to maximise space without compromising on style.
