Child's First Library Gets the Design Experts' Approval in Junior Design Awards 2014


Greater London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2014 -- Tidy Books, the children’s bookcase company, has received the seal of approval from parenting and style experts, in the Junior Design Awards announced today. Tidy Books’ bookcase, which is an ideal first library for a child, has been shortlisted in the Best Furniture Collection category in this year’s awards.

Junior Design Awards hosted by Junior Magazine, are lead influencers on parents’ product choices for their children. The Junior Awards judging panel looked for examples of the finest and unique design for children.

In awarding the Junior Design accolade, judges recognised the power of the Tidy Books bookcase design, which inspires children, aged 1 and up, to explore books and develop a lifelong love of reading. Conceived by violin maker, Geraldine Grandidier for her own children, the Tidy Books bookcase appeals to the design enthusiast, the realist, and the dreamer in every style conscious parent. The bookcase meets parents’ demand for original and stylish design that young children find straightforward to use.

“Parents tell us how important it is that their children love reading. The design of the Tidy Books Bookcase provokes an’ ‘aha’ moment. Our Junior Award shows parents that this is product that is stylish and child-centred, and will encourage their child’s love of books.” explained Ruth Duncan, Tidy Books’ marketer.

The Tidy Books bookcase was the first in the market, and remains market leader in concept, quality and eco-credentials within the children’s furniture category. Tidy Book’ pieces are an investment: They are built to last a family for 8 years or more, made from sustainable wood and finished in water lacquer. Water lacquer is free from toxic vapours making it better for the environment, the producers and children.

Tidy Books founder and CEO Geraldine Grandidier said; “Winning a Junior Design Award is incredibly important- it demonstrates that a product has design integrity and is the finest in its category. And I’m delighted to get this tribute from the Junior judging team.”

Tidy Books Bookcases are sold in John Lewis in the UK, or online at http://www.tidy-books.co.uk, and priced from £135.
