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”.

Completely Customisable

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”.

    Thank you for exposing this brand – exciting to find unique beanbags. I love the “oh my stripe” beanbag with denim base. This would be the perfect addition to my eldest son’s room which is due for a makeover. He currently shares this space with his little brother, who will be moving into his own room soon so this is a chance to make the space a bit more grown up. This beanbag would be perfect for a chill out zone under his loft bed and compliments the existing black & white herringbone feature wall. I know my son would be thrilled to have a space to retreat to away from his 2 younger brothers

    Big Dot with Black base, this would be absolutely wonderful for my beautiful friends nursery. She has so much going on with a husband away in Iraq, a mum who is currently battling aggressive cancer, university study and a very busy 2yr old as well as the addition due october. This stunning beanbag would complement her nursery colour scheme and would hopefully put a smile on her face. They are just beautiful ❤

    I adore the Scandi Grid bean bag. We are redecorating our tween and teen girls’ rooms, and it would look amazing against the dark grey carpet and white walls. Best of all, the girls would love it!

    My bookworm four-year old twins would definitely be Going Dotty with a Baud&Co bean bag. Perfect for cosy, lazy days snuggled together with a good book. Love your work Baud&Co!

    My favourite Baud and Co beanbag design is “GOING DOTTY” because of it’s simple white background and soft pastel pink.

    The silver dot teen design would be eye popping in my 13 year olds hot pink and white bedroom. Plus it’s her birthday this month….perfect

    My favourite would have to be “BLUE DOTTY DOT” POMPOM BEANBAG. Mostly because it would go with the rest of my lounge room decor! Just because its kids furniture doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish and work with the rest of the furniture! :o)

    It’s really amazing seeing Aussie creatives/interior-decor designers showcasing unique and fresh products in the local market. It gets me insanely excited to browse and shop knowing these products are available and within reach! You know how frustrating it is to see cute items, say on Etsy, then realising later on that they’re not available to buyers overseas or shipping cost is way, way too expensive! Well done Kris! I admire you having an idea and actually putting it out there!
    Oh and btw, love your “Going Dotty.”

    My gorgeous niece Lucy steals her dad’s bean bag all the time to read. Having one of her own would be so awesome! She has just moved into a big bed and one of your amazing beanbags would make a great addition to her ‘new’ room. She has a brother or sister on the way so the beanbag would be used twice. She’s rascal but it would make her SO happy! All designs are fabulous; it would be hard to choose a favourite!!

    yellow all the way, This design would brighten up the house and décor, has a real happy feeling, my new born would love to spend time on the bean bag reading a book, having her own special seat that is hers, the design looks like a small version of a couch great support for her back to, so mum can sit with her and have cuddle time, Babys love bright colours

    Pindot Denim. It screams I’m a boy! I feel like with my new Bub there isn’t a lot of cute decor on the market for boys! Love your local designs and craftsmanship!

    Pink floral/shearling…after two mischievous (but much loved) boys, it’s been a blessing to have a little girl, embracing all that is pretty in pink (even if it is just until she demands otherwise).

    The Scandi Grid is my fave design because it is gender neutral and both my boy and girl will love to read on it.

    I’m seriously crushing on the “Dot On” pattern. Not only is it tres stylish, it looks Vegemite-fingerprint-friendly, which is totally necessary at our place (alas, poor couch).

    I am just in the process of bringing my little nursery plans to life for baby #2 and didn’t realise how badly I needed a beanbag in there until I saw this post! My favourite is the “Going Dotty” I love the light speckle of black dots on the white background and the pom pom is divine. I can just see myself in it, reading stories to my new little person or just sharing cuddles. A perfect addition to any kids room that will be loved for years to come

    A massive kudos to you Kris, such a wonderful story and products to boot! It feels like I’m trying to pick which one of my children is my favourite though as all of the designs are just so unique and stylish so it’s hard to choose just one! But if I have to pick it would be Going Dotty for its sweet and timeless look. I can see many happily ever afters being shared atop a Baud and Co bean bag.

    It’s the pindot/ denim combo all the way for me! Gorgeous colours and enough non-white spaces so any dirty marks the kids make wont show too easily. Love the rainbow pom pom too 🙂

    I have been racking my brain trying to work out what to get Henry for his 1st birthday next month. Then I saw these gorgeous bean bags on instagram! They are just perfect!! And there is the perfect spot for it in his room under his book shelves – his own little reading nook! There are so many cute designs but I think my favourite is Oh my stripe. Love it with the light denim base in the photo on the blog. Cute taboot!!!!!
