Pint Size Luxury Rooms For Children

Children's furniture and decor are all grown up.  Gone are the days when childrens imaginations were left out of their room design.  Today children are requesting rooms to suit the lifestyle they envision living in the future.  The feeling is, why should I wait till I have grown up to express myself? 

Children's rooms play an important role in their lives.  A child's bedroom is a place where he/she reads, studies, plays, meets friends and grows up in and build their own personalities.

Vibel is a company which creates children's room design solutions for families.  The company gives parents and children a wide variety of furnishing possibilities and layouts adapted to each child, family, situation and offers solutions to all sorts of limitations. These designs and layouts are custom made to the parents' and children's requirements and room layout and can accompany the children's evolution as they grow older through simply modifying certain aspects.

Take a look at this little girl's room inspired by Marie Antoinette.
