Take A Seat
Any design-driven parent is aware of Kalon Studios but a toddler bed or dresser from the Los Angeles-based brand is definitely an investment piece. Enter the nursery stool or seat — an easy way to integrate one of Kalon's pieces into your home. The beautiful wood which comes in ash or maple ages organically over time and is a wonderful alternative to an average step stool.
