Local Family Business Launches Brilliant Kids Play CouchSeptember 23, 2021
Introducing ARKi, the new multiFUNctional play couch with personality, designed with everyone in mind and sparking endless possibilities for play!
ARKi was founded by a local Northbridge family with several generations of expertise in sourcing and supplying quality, purpose-built furniture for the Australian market.
As parents of three young daughters, finding furniture, especially kids’ furniture that wasn’t an eyesore seemed like a challenge.
Modular play furniture is not a new idea, but modular multiFUNctional play furniture that looks as good on the cover of a magazine as it does in your lounge room is a game changer!
ARKi is a multiFUNctional play couch which is as much eye candy for your kid’s play zone as it is the building blocks to unleash your child’s imagination to create just about anything! ARKi fuses beautiful pieces with beautiful play, and we believe that when this happens, anything is possible and lasting memories are made.
Each ARKi Base Camp pack is a 10-piece tool kit made up of:
• 4 square base cushions with velcro attachment
• 2 unique arched arm rests with detachable half-moon cushions
• 2 non-slip trapezoid back cushions.
The ARKi Lounger set consists of eight pieces, including two squares, two arched armrests with detachable half-moons and two trapezoids
The name ARKi is a play on the word Archetype, which essentially epitomises a personality type of your child. Are they a Ruler, a Jester or a Hero? With ARKi they can unleash the personality type within and are only limited by their imagination.
Essentially, ARKi is built on the foundation of supporting play-based learning and is designed to foster the power of play. ARKi supports a child’s social and creative development by enabling imaginative or pretend play as well as nurturing gross motor skills via manipulation of its kid-sized constructive pieces.
‘Modular play furniture, like ARKi, provides life-sized building blocks of differing shapes and sizes that enables children to engage in both imaginative and constructive play, and therefore becomes a fantastic medium with which children are able to develop their play.’ Emma Sutherland, Psychology and Educational Development Specialist.
Unique features include:
- Better buildability: ARKi’s 10-piece base pack offers the ultimate mix of shapes to build almost anything kids can dream up! Squares, half-moons, trapezoids. And unique to ARKi, arched armrests which are the hands-down best shape to create tunnels, shows, shops and even animals!
- Non-slip backed fabrics and Velcro tabs for easy connect-ability ensures frustration-free building for little tinkerers
- Unique Two-Tone colour options to match any style
- High quality fabrics with premium non-compressed foam.
ARKi is built from durable, safe foams which are certified low-VOC, free from nasty chemicals and are antibacterial treated to provide odour, mould and dust mite resistance. ARKi uses premium 100% polyester, ‘heavy commercial’ grade fabrics (with a wool/felt texture) which not only look and feel sensational on your ARKi play couch but also provide easy clean and hard-wearing assurance. Covers are removable and machine washable. ARKi also offers the additional assurance of unique inner covers to provide an extra layer of stain and moisture protection to ensure ARKi can continue to play as hard as your kids for years to come.
