This is from Géraldine, who’s a mum and I started Tidy Books when I created the first Tidy Books children’s bookcase for my daughter in 2004. I spotted a gap in the market and so I set up my kid’s bookcase company from my violin workshop with a £500 investment.
It’s become a design classic and it’s changed how we present books to kids at home. Ever since, I’ve been designing book shelves, wooden wall bookcases and storage boxes for kids which foster their sense of independence, because… Kids Know Best!
When you choose Tidy Books, you’re guaranteed an original design. My designs are simple, classic and built to last, and you’ll have an iconic piece of kid’s furniture to pass on through the family. Every product is finished by hand, making each one unique. My original, handmade designs are very different from what you’d find at the larger stores.
All Tidy Books designs are made in sustainable wood and finished in eco-friendly water lacquer.
Parents tell us how much their children enjoy using their Tidy Books independently, whether it’s to explore books, organise small toys or keep books next to them in the top bunk bed. I’m proud that my designs have helped thousands of kids discover the world for themselves. Because KIDS KNOW BEST!
