Children’s desks

PAIDI = to the child (Greek)

Our companys name “PAIDI” has its origin in the Greek language and means “to the child”. For us, our name is a more than that: we dedicate what we do to “the happy child” who should grow up in a healthy and happy environment. You could as well say: PAIDI stands for responsibility – you can trust us.

 

Our principles

Furniture that grows with your child from the first day of their life right through to their teenage years – at PAIDI, this is backed by a long tradition and constant innovation: wood from sustainable European forestry and passionate craftsmanship on the one hand, lovingly designed concepts and technical developments by our in-house designers on the other hand.

Our history

1935

PAIDI was founded as “Paidiwerk GmbH Holzwarenfabrik” in Hafenlohr (located in Bavaria Germany). At first, only small pieces of furniture were manufactured, such as our first mass-produced “PAIDI Bettchen”.

1953

Due to constantly growing demands, the factory premises are moved to the edge of the town and expanded to 60,000 square meters

1964

The PAIDI cot turns more and more into a bestseller. 17,000 beds are produced in just one month.

1978

The “growing along” idea begins to emerge. PAIDI now also manufactures complete children’s rooms.

1997

New to the PAIDI range are play and bunk beds. The new furniture with ladders, slides and matching textiles create playgrounds and hideaways in the children’s room (Picture: Model CLAIRE).

2002

The importance of well-equipped workplaces for pupils is increasing. PAIDI introduces a new product line with the JACK desk and the SAM desk chair.

2021

A home of their own even for the youngest: The TINY HOUSE is available with different wall and window panels as well as roof shingles, which are very easy to change thanks to the twist lock developed by PAIDI.
