RAD CHILDREN’S FURNITURE was founded with a vision to empower parents and caregivers to encourage children to fully and completely be themselves, to grow at their own pace, to enjoy the wonderment of being a child, to fully express themselves through movement, the power of imagination and the joy of becoming. Our children's furniture and play structures are the offshoots of many schools of developmental thought that honor the child as a full person from Day One.
Each hand-crafted piece of RAD children’s furniture is made at our Southern California facility by craftsmen who have one goal in mind: to provide parents and educarers the tools to stimulate freedom of movement and expression to foster healthy minds, bodies and imaginations. Call it play, exploration or gross motor development – the end result is the same. Children gleefully embrace mastering gross motor refinements, socialization skills, problem-solving, creativity and focus -- facilitated by our tools for growth, fluidity of motion and unique expression.
Radomir is your quintessential Renaissance Man. Forget his advanced degree in economics from a prestigious European university, or his long-spanning career as a relationship coach, corporate consultant and early years as a photographer – and fast forward to the formation of RAD Children’s Furniture.
In 2008, Radomir was leading workshops in communication, teamwork and leadership at a time his wife, Antoinette, was working as a RIE® (Resources for Infant Educarers) facilitator. To decompress from work, Radomir made furniture – lots of it. In fact, most of the furniture in their home except for a few generational antiques, came from his hands. Looking for an expanded woodworking outlet, parents from Antoinette’s RIE® classes started asking him to make furniture and climbing structures for their children. The rest is history. RAD Children’s Furniture was born, but it doesn’t end there.
Several years later, Radomir met John who had just had his first child in 2016. A college graduate, who enjoyed a career in television production, John preferred working with his hands and thrived in the DIY space. By the time Radomir and John had met by chance, John had already made his first Pikler Triangle in celebration of his daughter’s first steps. Excited by the opportunity to offer his woodworking skills to other young families and help empower future generations, John moved on from entertainment to join RAD full-time in 2018.
Since then, John had grown both the company and his family. John continues to optimize production, adding products, state-of-the art equipment, refining processes while nurturing the growth of in-house craftsmen and building the expanding community of RAD Children’s Furniture families and educarers.
