Meet Baud and Co Kids Beanbags and Win One for your Home
Discovering new decor brands is one of my favourite pastimes. When it’s kids decor, it’s even better. Although I don’t have a little one of my own, it doesn’t stop me from experiencing extreme levels of cluckiness when I see awesome products for kids rooms.
The brand I’m showcasing for you on the blog today is kids room kit at its best, and something tells me that my nieces and nephews (I have 9 in total) are going to be enjoying some products from this brand very soon if I have anything to do with it. Better be nice to Uncle Chris, kids; Christmas is not far away!
Oh – and if you’re in the process of putting your baby nursery together, this post will help.
Meet Baud and Co Kids Beanbags
The one-woman show behind Baud and Co is Kris Baud. She’s a mum of two who created the brand back in 2014 when it was time for her to get back into the workforce. Keen to pursue a more creative career after years in a marketing role, she decided to trade in the nine to five and hasn’t looked back.
The reason she decided to start creating the unique kids beanbags that Baud and Co is known for, is because there were barely any like them on the market at the time.
“Definitely none with a pom at the top,” Kris explains, pointing out the gorgeous embellishment that makes her kids beanbags so special. “I think the novelty of having something a bit different appeals to many”.
Not only is it the dazzling pom poms atop these triangle beanbags that makes Baud and Co creations so special, but there’s the added handmade factor, and custom-made design options. Kris consults with many clients to create an individual design for their kids spaces (selecting preferred fabric to pom pom colour), resulting in a beanbag that’s truly one-of-a-kind.
“I get the best feedback from people,” Kris tells me. “Customers are incredibly kind to send me pics, and also writing thank you emails. It’s actually been one of the unexpected but delightful things about starting this business”.
Based in the Melbourne suburb of Bayside and supported by two machinists, Kris’ humble business is taking the world by storm. With a floor cushion on the way, which will round out the Baud and Co collection, Kris is excited for what’s to come next and is especially grateful for all of the local support she’s received.
“I’ve had lots of creatives, stylists, interior designers and other small business owners put Baud and Co out there into the world of interiors and for me, that’s been a real gift”.
