Fast Customization helps parents design furniture to complement children's rooms

MIAMI – P’kolino has launched a line of customizable children’s furniture that helps parents choose a design that complements their child’s room.

The Fast Customization program offers a mix of colors, themes and other designs – including a child’s original artwork – that helps create a one-of-a-kind children’s bedroom set. This art can be removed and replaced with other designs, allowing the custom approach to “grow with the child” well into their teen years.

The custom program is being introduced through the company’s new Nesto collection that includes twin beds, bunk beds, cribs, dressers, desks and accessories. These are also made with environmentally friendly FSC Certified wood and have been engineered and independently tested to exceed U.S. and ASTM safety standards.

“We are very excited to introduce a line that is so true to our brand’s Playfully Smart philosophy and to bring this innovative customization technology to the juvenile furniture industry,” said Antonio Turco-Rivas Co-founder of P’kolino. “Today, our retail partners and customers can customize our products in real time and have them delivered to their location in 2 weeks or less.”

Officials added that the furniture is competitively priced – with twin beds retailing at around $699. Custom elements adding roughly $100, depending on the piece.

J.B. Schneider, co-founder of P’kolino, said, “We are always striving to bring new and thoughtfully designed products to the market. With this Fast Customization platform, we are bringing brick-and-mortar retailers an endless aisle without them having warehouses full of inventory. And, children get a super, fun and affordable bed that is made just for them.”

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
