On a visit to Ikea last week, I spotted the new Stuva System Line of children's furniture. The pieces are well designed and substantial in feel, with cut-out pulls that are easy for little hands to use. A variety of modular components are available (storage benches, cabinets, dressers), allowing you to create a wide range of customized configurations. Frames are made of white melamine; accent colors include white, pink, blue, green, and birch.
Above: The Stuva Storage Combination with Tall Cabinet and Bench shown is $310; the cabinet measures 75 5/8 inches tall and the full unit is 59 inches wide.
Above: The Stuva Storage Bench measures 35 3/8 inches wide and 19 5/8 inches deep and tall; $99 (casters included).

Above: The Stuva Storage Combination with Bench is a good example of how units can be combined; this configuration comes to $406.
