Waiting for P’kolino to get to Europe

Submitted by on June 15, 2009 – 4:22 amNo Comment


I have been desperately waiting for P’kolino’s amazing products to come to Europe. They are so original, fun and useful. I love the Clothes Tree, a sculpture-like tree for hanging clothes. It is so cool looking that you don’t want to cover it up. Made of birch laminated fibre board, this cool tree comes in orange, green, white and natural. It is 116.84 cm tall and weighs 3.17 kg.

P’kolino contemporary furniture is so well designed for a clever use of space and versatility that you just need to have it. The Ottoman is great, it can be used as a pkolino-ottomanstool, a side or play table, and as a storage bin. The strong lid has a soft cushion to seat on that can be flipped to reveal a wooden surface turning the stool into a table. This three in one stool comes in a wide range of colours including red, green, orange and blue and is designed to be stacked if you have more than one to create a soft storing tower. I have searched all over the Internet for a shopping site based in europe or the UK, but I couldn’t find anywhere to buy these fabulous products on this side of the Atlantic. I have read on Bambino Goodies P’kolino is coming to the UK this year, but the seller’s identity remains hush hush. In the meanwhile, those who can’t wait could take advantage of the US stores that ship internationally.
