KooKoo Bear Kids Adds New Kids' Furniture Line -- SmartStuff by Universal Furniture

KooKoo Bear Kids Is Only Authorized Dealer in Atlanta

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - KooKoo Bear Kids, an online, catalog, and retail store marketer of designer kids' rooms and exceptional gifts, announces the addition of a new kids' furniture line from Universal® -- SmartStuff™ Furniture. This new furniture brand is Universal's entry into the youth furniture market and KooKoo Bear Kids will be the only authorized dealer in the Atlanta market.

"Universal is pleased to have KooKoo Bear Kids showcase our new SmartStuff furniture lines for kids in their Norcross and Roswell stores," said Kevin Parker, Business Development at Universal Furniture International, Inc. "This top-rated retailer has a wonderful design staff that can help you plan, design, and decorate the perfect room for your child using our high quality furniture lines."

"SmartStuff Kids' Furniture offers another option of top quality furniture with unique styling, strong construction, and great value that is carried in the KooKoo Bear Kids' Norcross store," said Tara Mediate, president of KooKoo Bear Kids. "Many SmartStuff features set a new standard in excellence and distinction in kids' furnishings."

SmartStuff Furniture comes in four kids' collections, all providing innovative features and pricing in keeping with Universal's good, affordable, smart design mantra. The four collections -- Gabriella, RoughHouse, Freestyle and Classics 4.0 -- have about 25 pieces each, including beds, dressers, desks, media chests, mirrors, and bookcases. Priced about 20 to 40 percent below premium brands, SmartStuff features drawer interiors with English dovetail joints on the front and back, full-finish 9/16th inch oak plywood, and drawer operation on a pair of ball bearing, full extension, soft closing, under mount glides.

The Freestyle collection is fresh and sophisticated in cherry veneers with a rich Mocha finish. Bow front drawers juxtaposed with flat parting rails create a sense of movement, while tapered legs and simple round nickel hardware add a contemporary appeal. Gabriella's refined Lace finish boasts just a hint of glaze, which accentuates rose carvings, fluted pilasters, beaded accents and charming painted bale-pull hardware. Classic 4.0 offers timeless styling and traditional Louis Philippe details with softened edges with lapped drawers, round wood knobs and stylized bun feet. The RoughHouse collection comes in cherry veneers with a Rustic Cherry finish and features substantial tops and posts, softened edges, exaggerated bun feet and sturdy antique bronze bale pulls.

Other features include:

  • Patented charging stations for cell phones, iPods, iPads, computers, televisions; or the vacuum sweeper when it's time to clean up.
  • Removable partitions in the drawers provide simple organization to help mothers and kids bring order to busy lives.
  • Each dresser includes a hideaway for special treasures or a girl's first jewelry.
  • Built-in lighting is strategically placed for studying or as nightlights.
  • Bedrails are 100% bolt-together construction for sturdier, wobble-free beds.
  • Lead free finishes.
  • Bunk beds feature ladders with wider steps and deeper mattress openings.
  • A tray for the upper bunk creates a "nightstand in the sky" for an iPod, cell phone or alarm clock.
  • Beds are available in twin and full with bunk beds available as twin over twin, twin over full, and full over full.
  • Nightstands feature coasters for sweaty glasses, urging kids to "Respect the Wood" and protect the furniture.
