Furniture to Grow On: Sam Kids Collection by Muu

Muu Furniture

I have a bit of a problem with most furniture designed for kids. It tends to be outgrown fairly quickly, not only in terms of size, but also in style. So I tend to stay away from furniture that is overly detailed, ornate or otherwise very personal. Sticking to simpler pieces often makes it easier to pass them down from child to child, and it makes it easier to redecorate and reaccessorize around them. Kids’ furniture also tends to be cheaply made, meaning it will have to be replaced just due to everyday wear and tear.

Muu has suceeded at challenging my concerns with their Sam collection of kids’ furniture. Can I say I love these pieces? Seriously.

In this case, personalization is a good thing. The collection includes 5 pieces: a crib, twin bed, dresser, nightstand and storage unit. What’s awesome is that each piece comes with a panel, or MuuPanels that can be switched out as your taste changes or as you give the furniture to a younger (or older) child. Some of those panel sets are shown below. I’m not sure how much the panels cost, but there are several in each set, both vertical and horizontal, to fit the furniture.

This will greatly extend the life of your furniture. And if you’re like me and get bored with a room’s decor quickly, you can achieve a totally new look without having to buy new pieces or get rid of what you’ve already got. And in case you’re wondering, the furniture is built green too. I’m looking forward to the day when good design becomes completely synonymous with green design, and this collection is a step closer to that.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made in the US from sustainably harvested hardwoods, non-toxic MDF, and non-toxic finishes
  • Designed to evolve with your needs and last a lifetime

Prices: Twin Bed, $1395 |  Dresser, $1225 |  Crib, $1375 |   Nightstand, $495 |  Storage Unit, $595

    The furniture is great and the personalization option with the panels gives it a little something special. Plus, we we should be even more concious about surrounding out children with things we feel comfortable with. I always specify no VOC paint for kids rooms even if a client does not want to do it throughout the home.

    These are nice. You could spruce it up when you need to hand it down to the next child and give it a new look.

    I know what you’re saying about most furniture design for kids. I really think that this is a stylish example of what you can do and not have it looking all cheesy.

    MUU seems to definitely be raising the bar with this design series and to know that it’s green design on top of it all means they really have their furniture design knowledge together.
