The Kids Carpenter is a home-grown woodworking business that creates handmade kids furniture. Founded by Ms Lane Teo, a mother of 2 young children, it was created to help design-conscious parents in Singapore build great looking and high quality custom made furniture for their children. We wanted to build unique furniture like loft beds, triple trundle beds, storage beds, doll houses, changing tables and wood art for parents in Singapore to enjoy.
We realized that parents have rather limited options when it comes to furnishing their children’s’ rooms. This is especially so given the smaller apartment spaces in Singapore nowadays. With aircon trunkings, strange wall configurations, power plugs in the way, it may seem like fitting your 2 or 3 little monkeys into the room is an impossible task.
All that’s really available in the market are some clunky beds, plastic tables and chairs and some odd sized toy boxes which are, in our opinion, less than ideal. The imported offerings from the U.S or Europe on the other hand are beautiful but exorbitant. Many parents compromise and settle for stuff from mass manufacturers or random online stores because it’s “convenient” and “affordable”. We didn’t like these options either because their quality usually ends up being questionable.
We decided to solve this problem. Not through expensive American imports, made in China furniture or anything like that. But through direct Singapore factory manufacturing… and everything is handmade! We in-source your custom carpentry needs through our self-owned factory. No middle men, no interior designers, no sub-contractor…. and no 3 month waiting period.
We can re-create something from your Pinterest ideabooks or you can choose one of our existing pieces and add custom touches to them.
Our design principles are also different in that we go for everlasting designs using materials and colors that will ensure that the furniture will look good for many years. Our focus is on using mixtures of solid wood, plywood, wooden veneers that are either sanded down to a perfect finish or spray painted in a color of your choice.
