The Tidy Books bookcase in Homeland, Carrie’s daughter’s bedroom

Tidy Books was founded by Geraldine Grandidier in 2004 when she could not find a good bookcase for her young daughter and so developed her original children’s bookcase which encourages children to pick out books and read.  Her design forever changed the concept of what a good children’s bookcase should do, and has become an iconic kid’s design,

Now a favourite with influencers and parents around the world for its original design, practicality and style, the Tidy Books bookcase has also featured in interior design platform Houzz of 2018 pop up expo, as well as being featured in TV series ‘Homeland’, BBC children’s programmes and home makeover shows.

Kind und Jugend , the premier children’s product fair has identified that children’s design brands are more focussed on great design, quality and environmental sustainability than ever before, and Tidy Books’ award winning designs for kids tick all 3 boxes.

Tidy Books makes a range of original children’s bookcase and storage designs which are easy for children to use, stylish to fit in modern living spaces and environmentally friendly; made from sustainable wood, and finished in an eco-friendly water lacquer which is better for the planet.  

Geraldine Grandidier said; “These are exciting times in the children’s design industry and I’m looking forward to exhibiting alongside so many international brands, and meeting new and existing customers.  Parents rightly demand so much more from kid’s products; they want style, practicality and are nostalgic for the simplicity of their own childhoods. That’s why they’re tapping into Tidy Books’ philosophy of doing what works for kids, designing to foster children’s independence, because kids know best. 

Tidy Books will be exhibiting with the Nursery Industry Productpreneurs Association – NIPA Baby alongside other original kid’s design businesses.  NIPA Baby is a group of inventors turned entrepreneurs who support and promote each other.   The Tidy Books team is delighted to meet retailers, industry colleagues and influencers at Kind +Jugend.    You can find us at Stand 04.1 C-047b  UK Pavilion
