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 toward little ones — we wouldn’t fault you for skipping over the elephant-shaped placemats yourself — other pieces seem to be adult-friendly too. Here are some of our favorites.

2 /10: Striped Wooden Box

2/10 :Striped Wooden Box

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.

4/10 :Laundry Basket With Handles

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

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