The New Boho Furniture Brand Making Serious Waves

Let me just say… the bohemian kids furniture I’m showcasing in today’s post has me seriously clucky. Like, I-need-to-have-a-baby-immediately kinda clucky. Don’t get me wrong, seeing nieces and nephews often makes me want a child of my own, but seeing stunning nursery furniture really tips me over the edge. Surrogates please apply within.

The best part about the bohemian kids furniture brand I’m showcasing in today’s post is that they’re brand new. They only launched late last year. Oh, and the even better news is that you can win one of their products for your own home at the end of this article. So keep scrolling to the bottom of the post for all the competition deets.

Raja Homewares is the name of this beautiful local biz and they are kicking goals already. A gorgeous, fully-realised aesthetic that’s second to none: check. Beautiful photography and a website that looks nothing short of inspiring: check. And furniture that takes a nursery or kids bedroom truly next level: check!

So how did this biz come about? I took some time out with the lady behind the brand, Tanya Harrison, to get the scoop.

It’s a focus on fostering a connection between parent and product that’s given Raja Homewares such immediate kudos from fans. Put quite simply: customers are losing their minds over the collection. And it’s not hard to see why.

Giving up Finance to Embrace Furniture

Running a small business isn’t easy. Take it from me; you need some good anti-ageing night cream, a daily meditation routine, and a bottle of Shiraz within easy reach at all times. There’s simply so much to do when you’re operating your own brand, and Tanya takes on all the varied roles you’d expect her to in a start-up of this kind.

From sourcing, logistics, accounting, marketing, styling and the day-to-day admin of running to the post office and organising couriers, I wear a lot of hats,” Tanya tells me. “Luckily I have my mum helping me out a lot with packing and sending too!”

Running the business out of her family home in Sydney allows Tanya to jump between (and juggle) business life and being a mum to her young girls. It wasn’t long after she built her family home back in 2016 that the inspiration to start her bohemian kids furniture brand sprouted. She left behind a career in finance, which has been a total 180 shift from ‘dollars’ to ‘decor’.

I really enjoyed sourcing beautiful furniture, artwork and textiles and creating adventurous rooms for my girls, so I decided to make a business out of this passion,” Tanya explains. “I knew there would be other mothers out there like me looking for distinctive, high quality beautiful furniture to fill their children’s rooms and nurseries”.

It’s the versatility of these pieces that makes the collection such a winner. They’ll grow with your child as they age, and the added bonus is that they look great alongside adult furniture in other rooms.

Rattan Goodness for Every Pocket of your Kids’ Space

And beautiful furniture it is, wouldn’t you agree? With an aesthetic that’s fun and adventurous but distinctly more sophisticated than some of the other products you see on the market, it’s a collection that appeals to both parent and child.

The connection the parent has to the room was of particular importance to Tanya when she was conceptualising the range.

We aim to provide a worldly wonderland of inspiration for our beautiful rattan products, to show how they can be a place of comfort, rest and fun for children as well as a place a mother can be proud of. I feel like this is so important when mums spend so much time in their baby’s nursery or playing in their children’s rooms”.

It’s this focus on fostering a connection between parent and product that’s given Raja Homewares such immediate kudos from customers. Put quite simply: customers are losing their minds over the collection. And it’s not hard to see why.

The Pieces Aren’t Just for Kids Rooms Either

The Rocking Ram you see above is a clear fave of Tanya’s (how adorable is it!?).

“I think people adore how whimsical this little piece is,” Tanya says. “Our baby dolly bassinet has that vintage appeal and mums just love this one too”.

It’s the versatility of these bohemian furniture pieces that makes the collection such a winner in my eyes. They’ll grow with your child as they age, and the added bonus is that they look great alongside existing furniture in other rooms. So you can mix and match them in with what you have to take the bohemian aesthetic across your entire home.

With new product lines on the way, you can expect more stunning bohemian kids furniture, decor and toys in the near future from this talented lady.

    My partner and I are half way through renovating our house opposite the beach in Tasmania and I am absolutely in love with ALL their pieces. It perfectly fits our style of wood/beach vibes. If I had it my way (bills ), my house would be decked out in Raja homewares!

    Raja homewares is a bohemian haven. I love that any piece of RH can create such a modern bohemian vibe. Bringing the COOL factor to any space!

  • Cat Lee

    Raja has an authentic feel about it. I love the style; clean, natural, timeless & chic bohemian. I also like that it works with ‘adult’ furniture; and could create a beautiful flow in a bohemian or even minimalist style home. Cx

  • Christa Smalley

    I love anything handmade which is perfectly imperfect. The texture and 70s boho vibe ticks all my boxes for good design. I would buy a day bed and pair with velvet cushions for the ultimate expression of my juxtaposed style.

  • Aprel

    I love the relaxed, welcoming, boho vibe Raja transmits. Every piece is unique and so so beautiful

    It’s all so divine. Whilst I adore the chairs, I can’t go paste the rose chandelier as it would bling up my boring bathroom beautifully!

  • cas

    I love this stylish rattan range which offers a dash of boho glam to any room and transports me to a roof top in Marrakesh or a beach house in Califormia. It makes me want to relax and the textures of handmade gives always gives a space soul.

    Hello! I LOVE everything in your store!! Some favourites I’d love to have in my home are the Eden bed, collections bookshelf and memories tier shelf and the eye mirror (which i have been waiting on a restock to purchase the mirror!) 🙂 Xxx

  • Lexie McPhee

    All of the items are so beautiful and look incredibly well made – that reading lamp with the shell shaped shade is to die for. No exaggeration.

    The range is just stunning and Tanya is so accommodating and lovely! Makes for a beautiful shopping experience the whole way through actually! Something you don’t often find these days. Can NOT wait to use my sunshine bassinet! Xx

    reply
  • Natalie Dias

    The elegance of the rattan pieces are so timeless. I can see these becoming a family heirloom that gets passed on from generation to generation, carrying with it many stories about it’s previous users/owners (especially the baby bassinet). The designs ensure any room is light and breezy without demanding a large chunk of space. Love!

    Raja Homewares’ use of rattan is phenomenal. The pieces look incredibly well-made, light and bright, and would surely bring warmth and texture to any space while conveying a feeling of a tropical paradise. I struggled to pick a favourite piece but I think the Eden Rattan Daybed would nudge out the competition – it’s positively lush

    reply
  • Hollian

    I love the beautiful rattan pieces. Especially the day bed ✨

  • Sisu Styling

    I love that Raja offers sustainable, earthy, timeless choices so that your children’s space can be a stylish, yet down to earth, organic space for growth. No tacky plastic junk here. Starting the appreciation for style, sustainability and longevity of design early is a massive win in my books. Love!!

    How great there is a store where you can get away from mass produced plastic and laminate baby products. Love these products you can create your home and childrens rooms into a natural boho chilled space to hang out in with your babes.

  • Simone

    I’ve been on a hunt for classic boho pieces for myself (single woman who owns a 2 bed seaside apartment) and my friend/mumma to be who is renovating her home, and designing a upcoming baby space. Raja homewares has been the first collection where I have been saying “I want that, amanda needs that for the baby” especially the sunburst bassinet and that gorgeous eye mirror!

    reply
  • Kailah

    I absolutely love every piece ! I wish I could purchase the whole store ! My favourite items would have to be the bassinets. They would make a nursery look wonderful
