Look to the children's department for unexpected design inspiration. We've shopped your favorite baby, kids, and teen home sources to bring you stylish furniture and surprisingly sophisticated decor.

Nailhead Nightstand

This nightstand's hand-hammered nailhead trim makes it right on trend. Choose from finishes in cream pebbled leather or distressed gray canvas.

Pendant Light

Light up your home with this striking geometric light fixture. We think two or three of them would look amazing hung through a hallway.

Feather Artwork

These intricately detailed watercolor sketches are a nice change from conventional framed photo displays. The pieces can be purchased separately or as a pair, and they'd be pretty hanging in a kitchen or bathroom.

Roman Shade

In crisp navy or subtle gray, this classic Roman shade is a tailored solution for any tricky-to-dress window. Thanks to its light-blocking lining, this shade is more than just attractive; it gets the job done.

Stripe Throw Pillow

With its graphic tribal pattern and flirty pom-pom detail, this accent pillow walks the line between serious and playful. Add it to the existing collection on your sofa for an instant refresh.

Capiz Shell Lamp

For a lamp that captivates any time of day or night, look no further than this beautiful design. Embellished with lustrous capiz shells, it is sure to add interest to your nightstand or desk.

Storage Baskets

They may be designed to hold toys, but we think these braided rope baskets are ideal for corralling adults' clutter, too. Their cool color-block pattern and hint of shimmer are a stylish switch-up from boring wicker.

Pen Cups

Nothing makes you feel like you've got it all together than having a cup of writing utensils at the ready instead of scrounging for a broken pencil in the back of your junk drawer. At less than $1 a pop, these geometric-pattern cups offer effortless organizing.

Floor Cushion

Parents spend just as much time on the floor as their kids. In classic burgundy-and-navy check, this handled floor pillow is both sophisticated and comfy. Prepare to plop!

Sophisticated Bookcase

Surely this bookcase belongs in some Hollywood starlet's bedroom and not in a nursery! There's no denying the dignified trimwork, snazzy hardware, and elegant lines. Plus, you can customize the colors to your liking.

Classic Blankets

If you choose the right size, you'll never grow out of a good blanket. This high-quality pick has everything you'd want: supersoft cotton, a weight that works year-round, and colors that will never go out of fashion.

Wall Mirror

This petite gold mirror is small in size but big in style. Hang it wherever you need a bit of brightening.

Canopy Bed

Kids' beds have come a long way. With an upholstered linen headboard and impressive metal canopy, this bed frame belongs on the pages of a magazine or pinned to your "Dream Bedroom" board.

Glam Desk

You're guaranteed to feel like a million bucks at this utterly chic desk. With a simple top and gold trestle legs, this desk is a smart choice for small spaces. #OfficeGoals

Family Tree Shadow Box

Create a family keepsake you'll treasure for years. This handcrafted shadow box comes ready for you to add your favorite photos from the past and present. When complete, you'll want to display it in a place of honor.
