The year 2015 is going to end soon.
Would you like to look back with us and see some of Rafa-kids’ favourite moments?
Two of Rafa-kids K desks were selected by one of our favourite Australian stylist Jessica Hanson
for a photoshoot for InsideOut magazine. How great is that? We were over the moon to see this colourful room created by Jessica and photographed by Sam McAdam-Cooper.
Spring came to us blossoming our long relation with a Japanese partner actus-interior store.
After 2 years of preparations, tests , meeting and discussions ,
the first container was taken and sailed to Tokyo.
Actus decided to extend their well known interior design collection with children’s design furniture.
Rafa-kids was one of the designers selected for the ‘Debute’.
We could not be more happy to have such a professional and trustworthy partner
on the other site of the world.
Yes, we are very proud.
We planned for a long time to have little online book with our range.
In 2015 it finally happened - FIRST Rafa-kids ONLINE CATALOGE.
Graphics designer Asia Gwis took it into her hands and the final effect is just so beautiful. Asia created for the first issue also a new animals that we called Rafa-kids friends : a Bear, a Fox and an Armadillo. We are taking them with us into 2016 - wait for more news!
Rafa-kids studio is a very busy place with frequently changing scenery.
Creating new rooms with our furniture to inspire our customers is Rafa-kids speciality.
This photo session with R toddler bed in dark finish and industrial touch, was made for na American magazine Lapetitemag. Paulina Arcklin was so kind to come over and help us.
It was difficult to choose just one room that we created last year!
After the summer holiday we started to prepare for Maison&Object fair in Paris.
For the first time we had the opportunity to show all our collection to the public.
The exhibition took a place in September with 3.000 exhibitors and 80.000 visitors.
These five days was such an amazing experience for us. You can read more about it here.
At the Maison&Object fair in Paris we launched Rafa-kids NEW SHELVES collection.
This time we worked not only with plywood but also added metal elements ,
which are going to be later available in 3 different colours.
The shelves are a perfect addition to our beds and desk with a new function for storage and display. The new shelves are still in production faze and planned to be in stock at the end of January 2016.
NEW SHELVES collection, which includes :
Rafa-kids is growing very fast, sometimes we have a feeling that we can not catch up with this high speed train. Of course we look back and would like to remember all the good things, but there are also low points. After 3 years, we are about to set a few very important decisions, which will help us to make our work more efficient and find a better balance in our family life and own business.
We hope you will stay with us and enjoy this journey.
