Kalon Studios is a new company offering “design for a sustainable culture.” Yes, their prices may send you into sticker shock. Their explanation: “In today’s world, sustainability is more than just being green. Rather, it has evolved into a belief system, an approach to living, being.” Kalon Studios uses renewable, raw materials and food-grade oil finishes on their products. Although the prices are high, the company’s children’s products are designed to be versatile and multifunctional. For example, the Ioline Crib converts to a toddler bed, and the Ioline Changing Trunk can be used as a toy chest or reading bench. Kalon Studios believes that loss of aesthetics, chaos, and clutter do not have to rule family life, but sustainability and beauty can go hand in hand with parenthood. Their products are locally made in southern California.
