When you were a child, did you ever dream that your bedroom could be transformed into your wildest imagination? Did you imagine an armchair as a space rocket, a hot air balloon as a bed, fluffy clouds as lights or a mirror that could turn into a TV like it had just jumped straight out of a Disney fairytale?
Well the children of today can make that dream a reality thanks to Circu Magical Furniture. The Portuguese based company specialise in creating fantasy furniture designed for children, enabling them to;
dream their own dreams…and give them a space to live out their fantasies
Circu Magical Furniture are more than just your everyday furniture company, they are a luxury brand who are committed to embracing childhood, educating children through their surroundings and enabling them to expand their own imagination.
I personally have never seen anything quite like Circu before and I was blown away with their creativity and superb quality of their products (I actually wish I was still a child)
So a hot air balloon bed is your dream? Well, your dream is a reality with Circu's giant 3 metre tall Fantasy Air Balloon and Sofa; the ultimate in luxury style for children.
The bed frame is made from traditional basket weave with the rest of the structure made from white gloss lacquered wood. The bed structure contains several drawers for storage and features a bottom section that can be converted into a sofa.
Synthetic fur is used for the top canopy part of the balloon which is also trimmed with gold leaf detailing. The attention to detail is second to none, the ropes are made by hand using traditional techniques and the metal parts of the balloon are finished in gold.
If that hasn’t made your mouth drop, the balloon also comes with a light and sound system built-in, controlled by a mobile app. Music, different light effects and a sleep time function can all be controlled, making the bed interactive.
This luxury doesn’t come cheap though, although prices can vary, you’re looking in the region of £21,000!!!
This life-sized reproduction of the original VW camper van, stands at 4 metres wide, is constructed of fibre glass and comes with chrome detailing. The interior meanwhile is finished in palasander wood veneer.
The VW camper van comes complete with a bed and a sofa, along with a desk, a mini-bar (obviously for soft drinks) and a built-in TV!! It has a mouth-watering price tag of £31,000!!!
The third bed in the Circu Magical Furniture range is for all those little Disney Princess fans out there; the Little Mermaid bed. Your little one can feel like they are sleeping under the sea with this 2 metre diameter shell bed. Constructed from fibre glass, it has built-in mood lighting and costs…erm…a reasonable £11,600.
We’ve sorted the sleeping arrangements, now how about inspiring your little Astronauts with the Rocky Rocket armchair? Inspired by the Disney/Pixar movie ‘Toy Story’ and made entirely by hand using a fibre glass exterior and a red velvet interior, this space rocket has a built-in sound system and mood lighting...all of which is controlled by a mobile app.
Built within the engines of the rocket are storage areas along with a secret safe stored inside the wooden staircase. The Rocky Rocket is priced in the region of £23,000.
When it comes to accessorising your child’s room, Circu have that all covered too. From pendant Cloud lights that have the infamous built-in sound and light system to a toy box plated in gold named aptly the Gold Box.
Circu also offer a selection of rugs designed in the style of a cloud and the moon, perfect to complement that giant space rocket armchair.
The final fantasy product is the rather beautiful Magical Mirror. This hand carved silver leafed 1.2 metre mirror houses a 19″ TV inside and can transform from a mirror to a TV at the press of a button...how cool is that? Priced just shy of £5000, it certainly isn’t your average Ikea mirror.
If you’ve got the money, Circu Magical Furniture provide truly uniquely designed pieces by a company with extremely high standards and attention to detail.
I'm just wondering if I could get away with a rocket in my spare room at the age of 32??
