I will get to these products in more detail when they become available for purchase and I add them to the guide at buymodernbaby.com, but I want to give you a look at my favorite furniture finds from ABC Kids Expo 2010. These are the new nursery furniture pieces that really jumped out at me. Let me know what you think.
First, I am absolutely in LOVE with this gorgeous table and chair set from Svan.
It’s so new that the designer only saw the actual prototype when it arrived in Vegas on Sunday night. The chairs are super sturdy, light and stackable. Don’t hold your breath for this set because we’ll have to wait another year before we can get our hands on it. I’d love to be first in line to order one.
Another great new furniture set that will be getting a lot of attention is the Overachiever from Q Collection Jr. They have some new bedding (which I will show you more of later), a larger version of their Stella Stackable storage, a twin bed with trundle and this amazing furniture set made to grow and last. Look carefully and you will see the bassinet is made up of the ends of the crib and the changing platform. Then you re-use the ends and the crib base for the toddler bed. This whole system takes you from newborn up until you’re ready to put your child into a twin bed.
Speaking of twin beds, Q Collection has this beautiful option with optional storage drawer/trundle (which was a requirement for me when I was looking for a bed for my oldest).
I was really excited to see some new items from Nurseryworks at the show They showed a new rocker and a new glider (with a base like the Goodnight Glider they used to have, but with a different seat) as well as the Hollis Crib and Changing Table made from clear acrylic. This see-thru crib has me scratching my head. I’m not quite sold on this idea but I’m glad they are thinking outside the box and coming out with new and different things!
Finally, my last favorite furniture find from the ABC Kids Expo this year is the Bamboo series crib and changing table from Seed Organic. This is a bamboo version of their Leaf Series, which I hate to say I had actually never seen before! Both the Bamboo Series and the Leaf Series feature a unique swivel top changing table and safety drawer retractor that automatically closes one drawer when another is opened.
What do you think of these finds? Do you have a favorite?
