The Vox Tuli Stackable Desk is a colourful and space-saving way to give kids somewhere to craft, build Lego, or do whatever activities they have planned for the day.

A built-in shelf gives them extra space to store their favourite art supplies and toys. Matching stools in complimentary pastel colours that fit under the desk are also available, so your little one can have a complete set-up for their creative endeavours.

The stackable design means it’s easy to store the desk out of the way when the fun (eventually!) stops.
