kinder MODERN is a leading luxury children’s furniture and rug design company and the only gallery worldwide specializing in vintage child design of the 20th century and inventive, contemporary design objects, furniture, and accessories.

Lora Appleton, founder and creative director, is the creative force behind kinder MODERN and her meticulous curatorial work and nuanced collections are key to the kM’s success. Appleton’s ability to identify and cultivate emerging talent has singlehandedly enabled her to create a new niche in the over­-saturated world of high design, one that melds iconic vintage pieces with fresh and fierce contemporary work.

How can one think about design work, or any work, with the world seeming to care so little about humankind? It seems almost frivolous in view of the current human struggle.
