A Cute New Kids’ Line (& Scalloped Table!)

hr 644

I saw it in a magazine a couple of months ago: a round side table from Target with a scalloped edge along the top and brass legs. It was just a little thumbnail-sized image and the table wasn’t even available then, but I made a note to check back for it because whoa, it was cute. I imagined it next to a chair, with a small lamp on top and maybe some flowers. Basically, something like this…

I didn’t have a specific spot in mind for it though, and the table wasn’t even available at that point anyway. Fast forward a month or two and as I was browsing through a preview of Target’s new Pillowfort collection for kids, I spotted the table. I had no idea it was part of their new kids’ line! They were styling it as a play table in the ‘Marvelous Manor’ collection, but I still liked the idea of one next to a chair and I realized that I did actually have a good spot for it.

Our playroom had a couple of vintage chairs in it that I had rescued years ago from an alley. They were outside of a building that housed many doctors’ offices, and I’m pretty sure they were waiting room chairs. Kind of cool, but not actually all that comfortable for long periods of time, so I brought up my floral armchair a while back to have a nicer spot to sit while the kids played.

What better table to pair with my crazy-flower-print chair than an adorable scalloped one? It comes in white, gray, or pink; you can guess which color I went for. I even picked up a little glass lamp for it, along with a party giraffe (why not?).

That’s a happy spot for sipping imaginary tea and eating fake cookies with the kids.

When I’m looking for things for the kid spaces in our house, I choose things with them that they like, but I want to like them too. Calvin’s still so little that he doesn’t have strong opinions on how his room is decorated, but Eleanor and August do. Eleanor likes cute, girly things, but not in the typical girly pink. (Early form of rebellion against her mother? I chose aqua for the lamp in the play room because I knew E would like the color.) She also really likes cages, and anything that looks like it could be used as one. August is pretty into sharks and sea creatures right now, but above all right now, he wants everything to be red. I had been looking for a matching pair of lamps to go in his room, and I grabbed two ceramic column lamps in red for him and he was thrilled. We didn’t need anything else right now, but here’s what caught my eye for each kid.

I liked these for my girl

Target Pillowfort Girl's Room

Floral sheets, but in blue! Shelving that looks like a cage, and then an actual cage as a light! (She would flip.) The lamp that I bought for the playroom with her in mind, and the cutest bear.

I liked these for my boy

Target Pillowfort Boy's Room

He likes the red lamps (I bought a matching pair), and I’m pretty sure he’d be into a red bed with shark sheets and an octopus friend.

I liked these for my toddler

Target Pillowfort Toddler's Room

Really cute furniture, a few forest friends, and black and white patterned blanket with trees. We aren’t ready to transition from nursery to big-kid-room yet, but I’m keeping these in mind.

    @kisstheprince That’s exactly what my first reaction was, too. :( We tried a polyester set that was a gift, but my kids got really, really sweaty.

    Thanks for the intro to this new line, but like the others above, I was so disappointed that the sheets are 100% polyester! Who wants to wrap their kids (or themselves) in polyester for the night?! Meanwhile, Target’s Threshold sheets are 400 thread count of 100% cotton and are fantastic. I hope Target reconsiders its fiber choice for these, and does justice to these great prints!

    I agree with everyone else- the 100% poly sheets are such a disappointment. Finally cute kid bedding- but it feels awful! The throw pillows and accessories are great though.

    Everything from the Pillowfort is adorable! Accross all of the different collections. BUT I feel like Target is becoming a bit too spendy when you consider the quality. $80 for a little metal side table that was made in China!?

    The sheets are so horrible. I bought 2 sets and had to return them. I don’t understand why they didn’t use cotton.

    I hope Target gets this feedback. I bought a whole sheet and comforter set with my daughter, who got so excited, only to have to get home, feel how horrible they were and return them.
