Where can I buy nice furniture suitable for toy storage that doesn't look like kids' furniture?

We are extending our kitchen into a big kitchen/diner and turning our dining room into a small sitting/play room. I don't want it looking too childish though as is right at the front of the house and you need to walk through it to get to the kitchen - it's not going to work as a shove everything in and shut the door and forget about it kind of room. Therefore I want to find some practical toy storage that when it's all tidied away will look grown up and stylish(ish) . Any suggestions?

We have a big Welsh dresser in our playroom - the toys

The toys all go in plastic boxes which sit on the bottom of the dresser - shut the cupboard doors, all tidy!

Large ottomans are good.

They double up as storage and seating.

Thanks for the suggestions. The low Laura Ashley furniture looks good although have heard bad reviews on Mumsnet about Laura Ashley furniture recently

I've got that modular stuff, lasted 7 years so far! It's very solid
They always have sales

What about something like this furniture123.co.uk/bluebone_savoy_oak_2_drawer_chest_with_6_baskets_hco30

Or a nice big sideboard that's mainly cupboards. Can't beat expedit/kallax for storage and price efficiency though.
