Dwell Towels

DwellStudio Baby Hooded Towel

I love Dwell Studio. And I love their kids designs even more! Aren't these towels ridiculously cute? I would love to snuggle my little ones up in these after their baths. And they would look so great hanging in the kids bathroom!  Actually I think I have a modern chair fetish too so this photo combines the best of both worlds! Get the towels at Design Public.

One Potato, Two Potato...

I just ran across the lovely Three Potato Four. They are an online store selling a unique mix of vintage and modern housewares, paper goods, and kids items. I really love this Giraffe Mug and Dish set by Shinzi Katoh.

We're Back!

So, it's been a while since we've updated our blog! Yikes - we haven't posted since May! Well, think of it as an extended summer break... or maybe it's because we've been up to some interesting things here at Leila & Ben.

First, if you haven't seen our new store already, go and check out our Pattern Store over at Etsy for modern sewing and crochet patterns for kids (and Mamas!). Our patterns are made for beginners, with clear instructions and step-by-step photos. We hope to get a few more up in the next few weeks, including a bolero jacket pattern, a simple skirt pattern, and a Mama apron in the same style as our toddler apron.

I also wanted to post a link to some beautiful modern furniture for kids. It's bit pricey for me, but you might decide you just can't live without it!  I love the bold colours and the styled legs. And don't you just adore that twin bed?? They also ship to Canada - yay! It's made by True Modern via All Modern Furniture.
