We have finally settled into our new home and it was truly a tedious process. From trying to sort out defects with the developer to getting all our ‘suppliers’and purchase deliveries lined up perfectly because we didn’t hire an ID or contractor. And then dealing with the big move + massive unpacking whilst handling a very sick toddler. I am glad to say that we lived to tell the tale!!!
So what better way to ‘celebrate’ then to share some of our favourite pieces in our new home that we can’t wait to enjoy! 🙂
One of the first few pieces of furniture that we bought, was our dining table. We were really concerned about the amount of space that we would have for our dining table + sofa so we were alittle conservative when it came to the length of our dining table. However we were really glad that we decided to choose benches as the choice seating as it is truly a space saver! We especially loved the rounded edges around both the table and the benches! One less thing to worry about with the kids.
If I have to be honest, this favourite piece actually belongs to Jah. In fact I nearly had to can the idea of having a rocking chair (which you will see later) because we got him this swing. But I can’t say I’m complaining because the kids are really enjoying it!
Our next favourite piece is also an outdoor balcony piece. Our Transformer Bench which can be folded into a bench or opened to become a table with seating. We love the idea that it could be a space saver but also provide us with additional seating when more people come over for dinner. Also just a nice piece to have if you want to chill out in the balcony with a cheese platter and wine! 🙂
I promise that this will be the last balcony piece! Yes I know it seems all our favourite pieces are in the balcony :p What can I say..that was the theme we were going for..lots of spaces to lounge and chill as a family! This addition to our balcony came only after we were sure that there was enough space leftover from Jah’s swing and the transformer bench. I just could not resist how comfortable and ‘breathable’ this rocking chair is and the little neck pillow attached to it, was just perfect!
Jah’s Army Bunk Bed
Another space saver piece that allowed us to have additional play space within Jah’s bedroom. His modular low bunk bed allows him to sleep on the upper deck (which is slightly lower than a regular double decker) and play in the lower deck, complete with army themed tent and drapes. We were initially quite concerned about him sleeping on the upper deck but we got him to test out the type of stairs/ ladder (yes there are a few variations) that he was more comfortable with. Lets hope that this piece will break his co-sleeping habit!
You might have also noticed the bean bag in the above photo. Yes more chill-out furniture. Check out our previous post for our thoughts on the Doob Bean Bags – link here.
So there we have it, some of our favourite space-saving & chill-out pieces!
I guess now its time for me to go enjoy some cheese and wine on one of our chill-out furniture before the rest of the family starts hogging them!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
