Jaxon Mini’s Chic Furniture Line Will Change Your Mind About Kids Decor

04/15/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

When it came time to transition her daughter’s nursery into a toddler room, Jaxon Home designer Victoria Richter didn’t have to look far for inspiration.

Channeling her popular line of home furnishings, Richter set out to adapt her creations into kid-friendly versions. And before long, Jaxon Mini was born.

“As a mom, I want to make my kids happy and comfortable — and as a designer, I want them to have furniture that is sophisticated as well as playful,” Richter says.

The result? A really cute mix of pint-size couches, arm chairs and tufted beds that will transform any tot’s room into a chic space.

Hitting the road this spring or summer?

Evenflo has launched a new Platinum collection of car seats — the Symphony DLX, Symphony LX, SecureKid DLX and Triumph LX — that will make traveling with your tot a whole lot more comfortable.

Each car seat features NASA-developed temperature regulating fabrics in the padding that are designed to keep babies and toddlers comfortable during both hot and cold weather.

Essentially, the fabric absorbs and stores hot and cold temperatures and then releases them when needed. It also helps reduce perspiration so your child stays drier.

Another cool feature? Buckle pockets, which allow moms to tuck the buckle straps away, making it easier to get babies in and out of the seat.

“We are really thrilled,” Paul Bolton, managing director of the heritage children’s footwear brand, tells PEOPLE, adding: “You couldn’t have a better pair of feet for them to be on!”

Founded in 1952, the Leicester-based company is the only traditional children’s shoe manufacturer left in the UK.
