Our product story


"Everything I make is designed to be fun and enjoyable for children, to draw them in and foster their sense of independence.

Your first library should have your name on it!   After all, it's the beginning of the whole world opening up to you:  Where will you go and who will you meet in your first books? I created the personalised Tidy Books bookcase to put kids in charge of their books.

I make sure all my designs are stripped back to keep them looking stylish so they blend easily into a home. It’s about creating a timeless classic that can be passed down through the generations.

My designs give kids the freedom to discover their world by themselves- because kids really do know best."
