Italian design is known for being sleek, sexy and thoroughly grown-up, but Dot & Cross is one of the first brands to have extended this reputation to covetable furniture for kids and teens. Convertible items that can be adapted as children grow prove that function need not come before design. We love the cot that turns into a sofa and a drawing board which transforms into a desk and modular storage units. Slot bunk beds, tables and cupboards into chic nesting combos if you need to be clever with space.

Stylish furniture that grows with your kids, this is what we’ve been searching for for so long.

From £78 for a bedside unit.
