Founded back in 2014, Copenhagen based Konges Sløjd have been part of the Junior Edition family for over five years now. We fell in love with their simple, functional and beautiful designs whose Scandinavian roots can be keenly felt and whose appeal is enduring.
A store favourite, it is a go-to brand for so many of our visiting customers as well as well as being hugely popular amongst those shopping online. Whether decorating the nursery, clothing newborns and older children or looking for beautifully designed toys and homewares, our current collection of over 500 pieces offers plenty of choice with seasonal print themes and new products being added all the time.
Scandinvian Style - Konges Slojd
Konges Sløjd is a beautiful brand hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their design philosophy is to create simple, functional and quality driven product that is undeniably Scandinavian in style and ethically produced.
Established in 2014, we have loved and stocked Konges Sløjd for several years now. It is one of our go-to brands for parents with an eye for interior design and is incredibly popular both in-store or online with people buying for baby showers and new babies or simply treating their little one or themselves to something new.
The latest collection sees some of their most popular products re-imagined in new prints and colour palettes as well as some gorgeous new additions that we are really excited to share with you.
The lemon is one of their signature prints and a personal favourite here, one of the new products we really love is the lemon shape sorter. Shape sorters are just brilliant developmental toys, encouraging little ones to learn how to pick up objects and match their shapes. Made from 100% FSC certified wood this is a beautiful addition to any nursery.
Konges Sløjd are renowned for making wonderful teethers. These are SO popular and we've had some designs sell out in a matter of days previously! New for this season are racoons, elephants, dragons, ice creams, lemons and our personal favourite, the tooth! Made from 100% natural Hevea rubber for soothing sore gums. They are a perfect size for tiny hands to grip and feel.
Most people are familiar with the gorgeous changing mats that Konges Sløjd make for the home but did you that they do portable/travel changing pads too? Available in three new prints this season including blue blossom mist and flower field seen here. The changing pads have a magnetic closure that makes it easy to open and close with one hand and two pockets for nappies, wipes and other changing essentials. Made from 100% organic cotton they are the perfect size to pop in a bag when you're out and about.
Also new this season in is the Mio pacifier with an orthodontic teat, available in four gorgeous colours - blush, light green, lemonade and rose. We have a selection of coordinating pacifier straps available online including some beautiful knitted ones made from soft lambswool with a wooden clip and rubber pacifier loop. These are ideal for securely holding on to your little one's pacifier so it won't get lost or fall onto the floor, you don't want to lose pacifiers that are this pretty!
Something I absolutely lusted after when I was (a lot) younger was a beautiful box to keep all of my treasures and jewellery. These beautiful musical versions come in two colour-ways (cream and blue) with different designs and are complete with a mirror and a drawer. They make for such a lovely gift for a slightly older child and its really interesting to see they consider their treasures to be!
The beautiful stacking fruit toys also deserve a special mention. Available both as the strawberry seen here and a lemon. Again made from 100% FSC certified wood, they are great for encouraging hand/eye coordination and counting skills.
The complete collection is available to view online here. Whilst our shop in the heart of Brighton's beautiful North Laine remains closed at the moment our online business is operating as normal. Stay safe and shop from home!
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These
We've been busy hanging mobiles from the shop ceiling this week and they are drawing so many admiring comments! They really are SO mesmerising as they gently twirl in the air, it's easy to see why they have such a calming effect on babies.
Quite coincidentally all of our current mobiles hail from Scandinavia. Produced by three very different but equally stylish brands, we have something for every nursery.
Konges Sløjd have designed these beautiful cloud mobiles with felted clouds and silver or gold coloured droplets, available in 3 subtly different colour-ways and coordinating beautifully with some of the other nursery pieces we stock by the brand.
Konges Sløjd are also responsible for this stunning swan in flight mobile, a truly unique piece that soars gracefully overhead here in our Brighton shop - it makes for a welcome change from those noisy seagulls!
The Loullou-universe is a concept evoked from the imagination of Lærke Rune, a Copenhagen based product and furniture Designer who has created a small line of architectural toys. All of their products are made from sustainable and organic materials, with all wood used FSC-certified. Their mobiles come in two different styles, "Up in the Air' and 'Stardust', simple and stylish. If you haven't seen their gorgeous baby gym and accessories yet, you must take a look but be warned, its an absolute must-have!
We have so many beautiful pieces from the Liewood range, from muslins and swaddles to the most adorable wash mitts and hooded towels but the pom-pom cloud mobiles have been the biggest hit in store, available in multiple colour combinations and sizes, they come packaged in a cute box which makes them the most adorable new baby gift.
Come visit our store in the heart of Brighton's North Laine area or take a look at our full collection here, we have a growing range of inspirational new baby and nursery products.
New Year - New Baby
A slightly belated, but hopefully not dreadfully late, Happy New Year!
There's something so exciting about new beginnings, a chance to wipe the slate clean and embrace something fresh. In our case this meant hot-footing it to the gym on January 2nd where we signed up for a WHOLE YEAR and embracing dry January for the first time ever!
The most special of all new beginnings of course though is the birth of a baby. As they enter the world for the first time, that wide-eyed innocence and promise of great things is intoxicating (especially helpful during dry January!).
We've introduced several new brands recently, both of which have some simply beautiful baby accessories.
Liewood are Copenhagen based and their collection is deeply rooted in the Nordic design tradition. They have an uncompromising and ethical approach to manufacturing and create conceptually strong products in irresistible designs for the modern family.
Their series of animal themed musical mobiles are exceptionally cute and play the classic tune 'Brahms Lullaby'.
We are huge fans of their lovely bamboo tableware sets, available in a range of animal designs and hugely popular with the little ones at mealtimes. We also have bibs in beautifully soft organic terry to catch the inevitable spills.
The animal theme continues across the most adorable face clothes, hooded towels, bathrobes, socks, tights and hats as well as muslins and swaddles which also come in a more traditional dot print coloured mustard, white, rose, dark and dumbo grey.
Also hailing from Danish shores is Konges Slöjd which was founded in 2014 by Emilie Konge Breindal who also designs the entire product range. Their design philosophy is to make tasteful children’s interior design and items that bring the little ones joy and are visually pleasing to the parent. Again ethical and environmentally friendly production is of utmost importance to the brand, as indeed it to us here.
As with Liewood they offer some stunning musical mobiles and we adore their gorgeous range of knitted rattles, especially the hammer!
They have an exceptional range of mobiles for baby's nursery. We have the swan up here in the shop and he looks wonderful in flight! The clouds are also truly beautiful and come in a range of sizes.
With tiny ones who so often have a habit of launching things out of the pram we have always found clip on anythings a real life saver! Konges Slöjd do some beautiful pram toys with a gentle bell in fruit designs and some super useful knitted pacifier clips.
Who ever knew that changing mats could be so stylish?! We have two gorgeous designs for the home as well as this lovely travel version with handy storage pockets.
