Admired at the recent Dwell on Design, the Deskhouse, a drawing board-cum-playhouse for children.

Designed by Alberto Marcos for Spanish furniture and design company Ninetonine, the cleverly designed two-sided drawing desk doubles as a playhouse. The Deskhouse costs $425 and will be shortly available from Coolkids in the US; in Europe, the Deskhouse can be purchased directly from Ninetonine for €195.

Above: Good to know: all of Ninetonine products are environmentally friendly, made from sustainable sources, and treated with certified non-toxic paints and lacquers.

Above: The Drum Stool shown here is also made by Ninetonine and will soon be available in three colors from Cool Kids for $199.
