|Room Magic, a new company in children's furniture and accessories, presents seven children's bedroom collections inspired by Matisse and a child's lively imagination: Bright, whimsical "cut outs" of tea cups, kissing fish and playful lizards animate brightly colored and natural finished birch wood designs. The designs have been so well received that Room Magic received a Pinnacle Award by the AAFD American Association of Furniture Designers.
Karen Andrea, a graphic designer from Santa Barbara, started designing furniture for a very practical reason: her 5-year-old daughter Sarah needed a bedroom set. "Sarah and I could not find any children's furniture that was like a child - fun, bright, bold and imaginative." explained Karen. "All the furniture we saw looked like miniature adult furniture, the colors were lifeless and the motifs were cliches". With daughter Sarah's ideas as an inspiration, Karen Andrea looked to create furniture that brought the magic into a child's room. Room Magic now has to seven collections, in themes for boys and girls, complete with furniture, accessories and bedding.
