Les Petits was a lockdown baby of a different kind. Stuck in a small apartment for months on end in the first confinement of 2020, I, like plenty of others, noticed niggly things much more than usual and became fixated on our 3-year-old daughter’s bedroom. I had always wanted it to look better, but just didn’t have the time. Now the hours, days, weeks, stretched before me and I needed a creative outlet. I spent a ridiculous amount of time on Instagram, searching for inspiration and products, only to then spend even longer trying to track down that perfect shelf or must have bed canopy.

And so I thought - what about a site that has a carefully curated edit of all the must-haves in one place. Not every option possible so the customer gets lost and frustrated, only the best, with all the hard work done for them. A children’s site that thinks like a magazine, with shopable features the customer will enjoy reading and shopping from. With all the items featured available to buy onsite.

No more searching different sites when you see a nursery or bedroom you like! Easy to navigate, beautifully laid out and full of inspiring imagery. A mix of Scandinavian, French, Spanish and Japanese brands featuring only the most beautiful and highly desirable premium quality wooden toys, furniture and decoration for children’s nurseries, playrooms and bedrooms. Les Petits was born. 

My background is in fashion, graduating from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design with an MA in fashion journalism, before working for various publications. With the advent of digital my roles morphed into content marketing, mainly for start-ups, which is what led me to Monaco in the first place. Here I met my husband, also Irish, and we had our little girl, Bea, just over three years ago.

Like all mothers, my daughter is my priority, but I also need to work, to have something for myself, to fulfil myself creatively as I did pre-motherhood. My aim with Les Petits is to create a company that will allow for a good work / homelife balance, being particularly supportive of other mothers wishing to do the same, whilst providing parents with the finest mix of premium products and design inspiration for their children.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoy the site as much as I have building it.
