L’ORANGE

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE -

Shop­ping for kids has never been more fun. At L’Orange, you are spoilt for choice with toxin- free ed­i­ble fur­ni­ture, soft toys, colourful bunk beds, piggy banks and ac­ces­sories. The fur­ni­ture has rounded edges to en­sure min­i­mal dam­age in case of rough play; for girls, there are stiletto- shaped land­line phones while the boys can have their fill of quirk with crys­tal- stud­ded skull­shaped clock di­als.

Owner Ro­heena Nag­pal helps you de­sign the room of your choice, se­lect­ing wall pa­pers, pick­ing the right beds and linens and even ac­ces­sories like a study ta­ble. There’s some­thing for all age groups from toddlers to teenagers.

Nag­pal urges par­ents to de­sign spa­ces that “re­flect the child’s per­son­al­ity”. The fur­ni­ture, which comes in bright hues of orange, sun­shine yel­low, red and green, is safe even if chil­dren lick or chew on them.

The store has in­ter­est­ing bunk beds, linen fea­tur­ing pop­u­lar car­toon char­ac­ters, also com­fort­able study tables and dressers. Check out the aisles lined with racks full of colourful, glitzy ac­ces­sories— cola cans that are ac­tu­ally fixed phones, pig­gy­banks in var­i­ous shapes, mugs, pen­cil stands and shim- mery phones. There’s am­ple va­ri­ety for ev­ery age group from toddlers to tweens since Nag­pal en­cour­ages par­ents to change the dé­cor as the child’s in­ter­ests evolve with age.

The store also dou­bles up as a space for young chil­dren to show­case their tal­ent. Over the past year, L’orange has hosted art exhibitions by teens to give bud­ding artists a plat­form.
