Shelf esteem

The Noah furniture range from Indigo Living is simple and functional. Rounded edges and chunky handles are designed to minimise nasty bumps when children (inevitably) fall on them. The collection includes a white storage unit that can be sized according to the proportions of any room by piecing together different storage options. The unit can be personalised by adding storage boxes. Key pieces start from HK$1,890 at Indigo Kids, suites 1817-20, 18/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing Street, Ap Lei Chau, tel: 2552 0545; shop 107, Level 1, HomeSquare, 138 Sha Tin Rural Committee Road, Sha Tin, tel: 2634 1618

Here's looking at you, kids

A quirky set of wooden drawers with a face from French company Pylones may encourage children to tidy objects away - at least until the novelty wears off. The drawers offer multiple storage options from clothes and accessories to gadgets, toys and more. HK$2,348 from Pylones, shop 916A, 9/F, Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 4326 9542

Change of a dresser

A dual purpose unit by US interior designer David Netto adds a splash of 1930s French style to a nursery or bedroom. The unit is part of the Moderne collection at Maclaren and is made from ebony-stained ash wood. The changer has a side drawer to keep changing essentials out of sight, and a reversible top allows the unit to convert between change table and dresser. HK$11,450 at Maclaren, shop 2010, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 1618

Little stowaway

The Alma mini urban crib is by contemporary furniture company Bloom, the creation of four dads with a desire to make cool, functional furniture for their children. The compact crib is designed to slot easily into small spaces in city flats. Its size (83.2cm by 94.4cm) also makes it compact enough to pass through standard-sized doors and those that are even smaller. It can be folded away and stored easily. The mattress height can be adjusted to accommodate a growing baby. Suitable for newborns and babies up to about 12 months. Available in green, orange, cappuccino, grey and white. HK$2,800 at
