You may know we don’t generally post about car seats because style and modern looks are not the point. Safety should be by far your number one priority in car seat selection and there are blogs devoted to helping you choose the best car seats. Read Car Seat Blog or The Car Seat Lady for general car seat safety info and recommendations, but I’m going to show you something where modern technology is making safety fun and easy.
From the baby gear tech experts at 4moms, the Self-Installing Car Seat installs itself correctly by auto-leveling and auto-tensioning. Proper installation is verified each time the carrier is connected to the base. Be sure that you’re doing it right every time.
Self-Installing Car Seat retails for $500 and is expected to ship September 19th.

For their Kids Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection, Ferm Living has a some great new items to take note of. My favorite is this Funkis Doll House. It really goes beyond the basic house shaped wall shelf that everyone has made versions of in recent years.
The House Wall Storage comes in blue, rose and gray and is a casual, cute storage accessory.
For Autumn/Winter, much of the collection is divided into either the Party or the Seaside theme.
Here is their Bamboo Dinner Set in the Party pattern.
And this is the Bamboo Dinner Set in Seaside.
The new wallpapers are becoming favorites of mine. Here is the Seaside Wallpaper.
I can’t wait to incorporate some of the new designs in future nursery plans!
As an alternative to plastic and melamine plates for kids, Dylan Kendall designed a fabulously fun series of bamboo dishware!
This Kickstarter launch still has early bird sets available, which include a free placemat, (for estimated November delivery) for $25. Prices and packages go up from there.
Four animal designs include monkey, rabbit, elephant and turtle.
Since we don’t cover baby apparel here on the blog, I do love when beautiful, modern children’s clothing brands introduce crib bedding into their line because that way I get to talk about them!
Coming July 1st, Monica + Andy is adding bedding to its organic line of clothing!

Nursery Works continues to elevate the modern nursery to the level of art and sculpture. If you’re looking for something extraordinary, they are providing a unique vision in the world of modern nursery furnishings. Three new designs have just debuted in their collection and I’d love to show them to you.
First, designed by Chelsea Park, the Ami Rocker is bold design with rounded wool cushions on a tubular steel frame that transforms from a rocker and bassinet into a double seat rocker.
It comes in this pink color they’re calling “Red” and retails for $1250.
The perfect paring with the Ami Rocker is the Margaux Dresser, also a Chelsea Park design. It has the same tubular steel frame and features push drawers and a granite top. This retails for $4500. I look forward to seeing this one in person!
The Ballad Rocker, designed by Matthew Grayson, is a whimsical rocker with a twisted steel frame and a comfortable wide seat and seat back. It retails for $2200. You can see it in the space above as well.
How can you not be impressed with what they’ve got going on here? Keep it up, Nursery Works!
We’re excited for this all new modern bouncer to debut here in the US. From BabyBjorn, the Bouncer Mini is more streamlined than the classic BabyBjorn Bouncer Balance. It can be used in an upright or reclining position and comes in Silver or Light Pink.
