This stylish chair was first built in 1939 for the museum of Modern art. In 1948 knoll produced a similar chair as part of their ‘Rapson Line’. Today the chair is back in production and you can be the proud owner of this modern, timeless rocker.
Read more about the history of this chair at KCMODERN. It is now featured at buymodernbabyseats where you can find a great variety of gliders and rockers to choose from for your nursery.
I’m happy to have discovered this collection of crib bedding sets from Egg by Susan Lazar. They are great additions to the world of choices for modern crib bedding. Check out the Animal Parade crib set in particular. I might be inspired to create a modern take on a farm theme nursery. Look out for that!
Before you know it, it’s time to potty train your little babies. Expecting a second spurred me on to make sure the first one was out of diapers, but these adorable new potties from hoppop could have inspired me as well.
Actually, my guy never did like using his little Baby Bjorn potty and we didn’t get him trained until we got a cushioned little seat for the big toilet, but every kid is different. Maybe he would have liked one of these better:
The larger Torro Potty is about $20 and the little Donut Potty is about $25.
Monte has added a new chair to their amazing collection of rockers and gliders. In my opinion they are the benchmark for nursery seating. Their latest addition is the Grano Glider Recliner— their first recliner. It’s perfect for when you want to put your feet up but don’t want to take up extra floor space with an ottoman. This chair is sleek enough to keep in your bedroom or in the living room as well.
Some argue that a rocker or glider is an unnecessary item in a nursery but I have found it to be an essential. It’s not just a spot to sit while you’re nursing, but you will use it to snuggle during your bedtime reading routine for years and it’s a perfect place to sit and relax while you watch your child play.
Sometimes less is more and if you can get away with a $65 booster seat instead of a more expensive highchair, I say go for it! The Grow Up seat from Mutsy is available in lots of fun colors like Apple, Aqua, Blueberry, Mandarin, Nut and Raspberry. The seat can be used from when your child can sit up by themselves until about 4 years of age.

I’m going to have to start keeping track of how I find these things. I have no idea how I stumbled across this one. While probably a brand used in expensive, traditional nurseries, the simple designs and quality fabrics in Lulu DK Matouk‘s nursery collections could definitely be used as part of your modern nursery. Just look at those amazing nurseries!

I can’t remember how I came across Loll Design’s website but I have been looking for the perfect set of outdoor furniture for a while now so somehow that got me there. I have to say that my budget for what I’m looking for keeps me from placing an order immediately but I love everything that they have. The size and style of the dining table is right up my alley, I love the fun colors, the birdhouses are spectacular and I would use the planters all around the house… and then there are the chairs. I’m not sure how I would choose which I would like best. Regardless, you should go to their website and drool while you imagine how cool your outdoor spaces could look.
I selected the Adirondack Chair to add to buymodernbabyseating because I liked the combination of the traditional yet simple style with a different material (polyethylene) and hip colors. It’s a chair that can be used indoors or out.
I also really like their BBO2 chair, which is made with recycled plastic and is available in 6 solid colors or can be assembled in combinations of any two colors. There is also a coordinating BBO2 table which would make a great set for your playroom, nursery or even patio play area.
I had the most trouble finding crib bedding with the look and colors I wanted for our nursery. That’s why I’m so proud of my list at buymodernbedding. With over twenty brands, the list includes bedding sets for every budget.
Today I was happy to add a MiGi to the “Under $200” category. I was browsing the Bananafish site and the bedding on the front page caught my eye. Digging deeper I discovered it was Alphabet from MiGi and I Googled my way to MiGi. Created by the MiGi girls, Michele Adams and Gia Russo, this brand is widely available and can be purchased from Amazon, Target and other online retailers. I’m always glad to find options where you don’t have to have a huge budget to create great modern style.
Pictured is the Pinwheel collection. As you can see they have matching accessories to go with the set including a lamp, mobile, window dressing and rug, and the color palette is bright and fresh looking.
I have a few more bedding options up my sleeve that I’ll be adding in the next few weeks so keep checking back!
