I suppose it doesn’t have to be for little people, but officially this is a red phone box wardrobe for kids at Maisons Du Monde.
It looks pretty amazing too, especially if you like the idea of a statement retro piece in a bedroom.
There isn’t much need to tell you about its inspiration, but just in case you can’t recall seeing one of these for quite a well (they are now fairly scarce) I’ll offer up a few words.
The red telephone box was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and first appeared on streets as far back as 1921. In the pre-mobile days and in an era when not everyone has a home phone, they were a lifeline. Commonplace on street corners until fairly recently, they are one of the first things anyone thinks of when it comes to the UK.
But no the kind of thing you think of for home decor. This one has the look of the classic phone box, but not the same metal and glass construction. This is made of wood and fibreboard, with a bold red painted finish.
Open the ‘door’ and you’ll not find a phone. Unless you leave your mobile in there. Instead, there is an internal hanging rail and three shelves for your clothing or indeed, anything else you want to put in there.
Not the biggest wardrobe, but you are really paying for the quirky design. This is almost certainly going to be a talking point. But you will need to find £464.50 to get people talking.
