Tradition dictates that after a certain age, you quit the kids’ section in favor of more sophisticated, upscale finds. Tradition has clearly never seen the wide variety of kids’ furniture and decor available on the market right now: Gone are the kitschy, cheap pieces riddled with cliché. The options for children today are chic, on-trend, and typically more affordable than their grown-up counterparts.

Case in point: The new Zara Home kids collection for spring. Dubbed “The Coolest Gym Crew”, it’s playful, colorful, and everything you’d want in a children’s collection. And while there are certain items definitely geared towards little ones—we wouldn’t fault you for skipping over the elephant-shaped placemats, cute as they are—other pieces seem to be adult-friendly, too. Here are some of our favorites.

Open Side Table, $119

Minimalists, this one’s for you. A simple white addition to your undoubtedly already starkly-decorated bedroom or living room, this basic piece is an easy storage solution and won’t take up much space.

Striped Wooden Box, $29.90

For a slightly sturdier alternative to storage baskets, opt for these wooden boxes (you can even stack them to save space!). Not feeling the natural finish? Give the box a fresh coat of paint to add a pop of color to any space and make it feel customized.

Knit Blanket with Small Raised Checks, $69.90

At this point, yellow has long been established as one of the preeminent colors of 2018. For a more subdued and timeless take on the vibrant hue, try a deep mustard shade. This knit blanket makes the perfect finishing touch to any bedding.

Laundry Basket with Handles, $89.90

The days of the plastic laundry hamper are over, friends. A chic woven one should be a staple in all apartments, but we love the bright blue detailing on this one for an unexpected statement.

Cotton Towel with Crochet Detail, $17.90-$39.90

How gorgeous are these contrasting shades of pink? Pair together to give an otherwise bland bathroom a fresh look, just in time for spring. The careful crochet detailing adds a bit of sophistication, too.

Round Paper Basket with Lid, $45.90

The best thing about this basket is that it comes with a lid, meaning that you can literally hide whatever unsightly clutter within and no one will be the wiser. Pick up a couple to clean up your living space in no time.

Rattan Cage Side Table, $199

With on-trend rattan detailing and a glass surface, it’s hard to believe this was originally meant to be a kids’ table. We imagine it going perfectly in any living room as an understated side table that can make a big statement.

Blue Seersucker Duvet Cover, $49.90-$89.90

Okay—so technically this duvet cover is meant for a single. But if you’ve long graduated from twin bed status, you can still use this chic seersucker-printed cover as a throw at the foot of your bed. If you live in a particularly colder climate, it can never hurt to have extra blankets, right?

Grey Patchwork Triangles Cotton Rug, $119

Warm up wooden or tile floors with this blue and white rug. Geometric shapes lend a contemporary feel, while still being classic enough to adapt to any decor scheme and last you for years to come.

Wooden Shelving, $119

Another easily-customizable piece, this simple wooden shelving is a must for anyone low on storage. It’s also a great option for the less-glamorous parts of your home that need organizing, like a laundry room or garage.
