Introducing Ultra-Bright Pink for this summer Only

Introducing Ultra-Bright Pink for this summer Only

The Caravan Collection is available in near-neon pink for this summer only. Available for all of the pieces in the collection: Caravan Dresser, Caravan Crib & Caravan Divan

The Caravan Collection plays with classic form, the organic qualities of natural materials and contemporary, ultra-bold colors.

Each piece is made in New England by traditional craftsmen from 100% sustainably harvested, domestic materials. Pieces for Europe are made in Europe from fully sustainable European materials. The wood is finished with a non-toxic wood oil and GreenGuard certified water-based paint developed to be safe for humans and the environment.

Available online at KalonStudios.com and select retail partners.



Isometric Collection American Hardwoods: A study in creating complex furniture out of flat sheets of material.

Isometric Collection American Hardwoods: A study in creating complex furniture out of flat sheets of material.

Kalon Studios’ experiment with creating complex furniture out of flat sheets of material produced the Isometric Collection. Elegant and comfortable, the delicate forms found throughout the series contradict the strength and durability of the pieces.

The collection contains the Isometric Table, the Isometric Chair and the Isometric Bench. Each piece works as a stand alone piece or as part of a dining set.

American made with purity, craft and timeless appeal in mind. Each piece is made by a small team of highly skilled traditional craftspeople in New England.

Available in multiple sizes and made from sustinably harvested Black Walnut, Bamboo, White Oak & Ash. The pieces are finished with non-toxic wood oil.

The effective planning of such a spa- ce requires a clear understanding of the key developmental stages in childhood. kidsroomZOOM! will exhibit designs and projects that offer innovative solutions and use materials that have been specifically chosen to stimulate childʼs creativity and independence, helping them through these fun- damental years while they play, learn and grow.



Introducing the Caravan Divan: Small size with a big attitude – just like your little someone.

Introducing the Caravan Divan: Small size with a big attitude – just like your little someone.

Bed. Couch. Whatever you need it to be, the Caravan Divan takes you all the way through childhood. Designed to be the perfect first ‘big kid’ bed for your toddler that transitions (no kit, no fuss) into a couch for your growing child’s room. You can even skip all the bed stuff and move right to divan. Small sized and low to the ground the divan takes up minimal space in a room yet is spacous enough for a growing child to use as seating for years to come.

Great for reading. A cozy place to curl up. Toddler bed. Guest bed. Sized for a child but designed with you in mind.

Available in all 6 finishes from throughout the Caravan collection. Conversion kits for the Caravan Crib are also available. Optional assembly without backrest for a colorful, modern bed with head and footboard.

As with all our products, the Caravan Divan is domestically made in an FSC certified facility from the highest quailty, locally sourced sustainable materials.
