Some call them “screenagers,” these kids coming of age at a time when screens of all sizes monopolize their retinas. It’s no wonder that many of these kids have over-scheduled lives and too much visual input to process. As parents, we’re all looking for ways to help them learn to use these tools but at the same time keep them in perspective. The Paula Deen Guys collection in the Smartstuff™ children’s furniture series combines a grown-up look and tech-savvy features, along with plenty of innovative storage space for when it’s time to unplug and get some sleep.
In the Paula Deen Guys collection, the simple, modern lines provide a mature, uncluttered design that lets teens know you take them seriously. There’s nothing “Mickey Mouse” about it. The sophistication of naturally mineral-streaked poplar wood pairs with the richness of a distressed, deep Molasses finish, a throw-back to tradition. Uneven planks – reminiscent of hand-planed, handmade wood antiques – give it the lived-in look familiar to any boy’s bedroom. The look is accented with round metal hardware, providing that contemporary flare that makes sure everyone knows: This isn’t your grandparents’ bedroom set.
The Universal Promise
Unlike many children’s furnishings, the Paula Deen Guys collection is part of the Smartstuff series by Universal Furniture. This well-reputed company isn’t risking its reputation when it comes to children’s furnishings; in fact, if anything, it’s building on its great foundation. Bed and drawer construction is especially significant. Smartstuff beds include plywood slat roll foundations, in order to provide stable support for your child’s low-profile mattress. Storage furniture includes self-closing drawers complete with built-in drawer stops, full-extension metal drawer guides, and English dovetailing, with drawers having been tested to 50,000 cycles.
The Smartstuff Goodies
Behind the Universal furniture quality and rich, contemporary design of the Paula Deen Guys collection, Smartstuff features make each piece a smart buy. Consider the Paula Deen Guys Reading Bed or Panel Bed; each comes in either Twin or Full sizes, provides plenty of storage space with the optional underbed Storage/Trundle unit, and the Reading Bed even includes built-in, touch-activated lights that are perfect for nighttime wakings without disrupting your child’s sleep. The Paula Deen Guys Night Stand also includes built-in lighting, along with a flip-up top lid that hides electrical outlets.
In addition to the Reading Bed & Panel Bed options, Paula Deen Guys offers Bunk Beds, which can also include the optional Storage or Trundle units for additional under-the-bed space. For top bunks, a convenient Clock Tray is provided in lieu of a night stand, allowing your child to plug in an alarm clock, phone, or other gadgets without compromising safety. Other hidden Smartstuff features include removable dividers for the large bottom drawers of dressers and a special place to house a game console in the Paula Deen Guys Dresser.
Paula Deen Guys offers the freedom that comes from safety, innovation, and beautiful design. Instead of insisting your teen be content with “kid stuff,” it offers the tools your coming-of-age child needs to succeed.
