New Furniture from The Land of Nod

There are a few eye-popping new offerings from The Land of Nod. We’ve been waiting for this Spring 2015 collection since we saw previews of it on Instagram, and I’m just as excited about it now that I’m seeing all the pieces individually.

First and most notable is the Springwood collection. Designed by Maria Yee, each piece in the collection is handmade from bamboo and coated with a water-based finish.

The Springwood Rocking Chair is a unique, sculptural piece that adds a lot of style without taking up too much floor space.

springwood-rocking-chair

The Springwood Crib anchors the collection, but I’m not sure why the back has to be higher than the front. I’m not usually a fan and don’t see the point unless it’s a crib that converts into a full bed, which this does not seem to do. $1500

Of course there’s a matching dresser ($1200) and changing top ($200). While the legs are beautiful, if you’re looking for a lot of storage, you might want to find another option.

Finally, there’s the gorgeous Springwood Bassinet. $550

The Land of Nod has really gone all out with bassinets this year and one might have to move from your “optional” list to your list of must-haves for baby!

In addition to the Springwood Bassinet, there’s the simple teak Olin Bassinet ($450)…

… and most spectacularly, the Norse Bassinet. This Scandinavian-inspired design is one of my favorite new baby furniture pieces in a long time. Other baby furniture brands are really going to have to start stepping it up in the design department!

The Campo Recliner from Monte Design is a Nod exclusive. Similar to Monte’s Grano Glider Recliner, the Campo Recliner comes in light or dark gray and features contrasting piping.

There are a couple new small storage pieces that are worth mentioning. The Alto Bookcase comes in three colors with three base options that can be mixed and matched to create the perfect combo. I’m thinking we may need one in Walnut and White at our house. $250

I also like the little Next Chapter Bookcase. You can never have too many books nor too much storage. $250

Finally, the Neon Chalkboard Table is a fun pop of color for any child’s bedroom or playroom. It’s available with a hot pin or neon green base. $300

I’m a believer that when it comes to furniture, you really can’t go wrong with the quality and service from Room & Board. So you know I get excited when they debut a new nursery collection. For 2015, Room & Board has the new Flynn Crib and Flynn Dressers as well as the Colton Swivel Glider.

Modern Crib Options at ABC Kids Expo 2014

There’s no denying that more traditional nursery furniture companies now have at least a modern style or two in their line, so I’m always sure to wander into the booths of brands that I wouldn’t typically visit at ABC Kids Expo.  Here what I found.

First, Bivona is manufacturing nice modern cribs under a couple brand names.  Most notably, we have their cribs for Fisher-Price!

Fisher Price Soho Island Crib

The Soho Island Crib is a simple two-tone crib that retails for approximately $300.

Fisher Price Soho Island Cribs

They also have the Fisher-Price Riley Island Crib which retails for just about $250.

Fisher Price Riley Island Crib

From Bivona’s Ti Amo brand, the Moderna Crib is a really nice style.  It comes in the colors shown or all whie.

Ti Amo Moderna Collection Crib

Delta Children has a few great modern collections and is working on more. This Manhattan 3-in-1 Crib is a great gray option. It’s reminicient of the Oeuf’s Sparrow crib but the legs are quite different and it retails for $250.

Delta Manhattan

Delta’s Urban 4-in-1 Crib ‘n’ Changer is a simple and space saving model for about $225.

Delta Urban

Their Hazel collection is the newest and my favorite.  No price info on this one yet.

I also really like the toy box they had along side the display.

Kolcraft showed this Scanda collection which is by far the best looking thing I’ve ever seen from Kolcraft.  In fact, we’ve never had the opportunity to mention them here on the blog ever before!

Kolcraft Scanda

Finally, from Romina Furniture, which is usually a little frilly for our taste, this new New York collection is really exciting.  I like the thin legs and the way you can customize the color and texture of the side panels.  This is a crib that has lots of potential.

Hope I didn’t miss anything!

What’s New from MDB at the ABC Kids Expo 2014

As usual, the MDB Family of brands had a really busy booth at ABC Kids Expo 2014. With brands like Babyletto, Nursery Works, and Ubabub there’s always a lot to see at MDB.

First we have Nursery Works. With four crib designs in its collection, this display was a show stopper. I introduced you to their new cribs a few weeks ago, but it was wonderful to see them in person.

Nursery Works Cribs

First is the Highlight Crib with the neon yellow metal base.

Highlight Crib Nursery Works

Next is the Halo Crib with the 24 karat gold square base.

Nursery Works Halo Crib

The Contour Crib is really spectacular and the design converts beautifully from bassinet to crib. I wish they had shown it in bassinet form as well, but they did have the mattress to illustrate the size and the pieces that come with the crib.

Nursery Works Contour Crib

The Empire Rockers are shown here in some new and limited edition fabrics.

Nursery Works Empire Rockers

There are also some fun limited edition fabrics for the Sleepytime Rocker. I’d personally vote for some colorful solids, but you can always order custom upholstery.

On the Babyletto side, the new Gelato collection features a simple design with colorful leg options. Choose Cool Mint or Spring Yellow.Babyletto Gelato
Leg Colors Babyletto

Here you can also see one of Babyletto’s new gliders. The Trapeze will be available in this gray or cream.DSC_0373

This mid-century style Scoot collection is versatile and will suit many different nursery styles.

The Lolly Collection will be available in this gray color in addition to the original white.Babyletto Lolly

Babyletto’s new Bento glider is small and simple model.

I like the way the new Bingo Collection incorporates color as well as storage.

There will be three new bedding patterns added to Babyletto’s line up. I particularly like the tulips and the aztec style design.

We got a preview of this rocking chair last year, but this year it’s being shown with a new storage piece with a neon accent.

And the Lemonade Playset isn’t new, but how cute does it look with all the colors?

Finally, from the DaVinci brand, the Jenny Lind Crib is coming out it Lagoon.

Such a great color.

New Color for the Honest 4-in-1 Convertible Crib

The Honest 4-in-1 Crib has been out of stock for a while, but not only is it now back, but they’ve added a new color (in addition to the original gray)!

Product-110-slide_with_zoom-6c26ef24-84a2-400c-b212-4317bd35534b

A great modern crib, a great price, two color choices, converts to a toddler and full bed AND they’ll give a crib to a family in need.  Do you need any more reasons to buy?

The Honest 4-in-1 Convertible Crib

I love this White / Washed Natural combination.  $400

Honest Dresser "White / Washed Natural" finish

The matching Dresser with Changer Top is $430.  Gotta love this collaboration between The Honest Company and Babyletto!

Roh Crib Now in White and Alto Collection

Spot on Square‘s popular Roh crib is now available in white with acrylic.  Previously it was a two tone piece with walnut and acrylic on the front, walnut or walnut and acrylic on the back and white on the sides.  Now you can choose a simpler, cleaner look with just white and acrylic.  Shall we call it the fish tank of cribs?  Seriously, it’s gorgeous though. ($1700-$2100 and expected to ship October 2014)

Roh Crib-White-2 Sided Acrylic-Front

I MAY be using this crib in our next nursery board.  Follow along on Pinterest as that inspiration develops.

Then, we’ve been waiting for the Alto Collection since ABC Kids Expo 2013.  The Alto Crib ($1790) is a beautiful, modern white crib with chrome legs and your choice of translucent end panels.

Alto Crib with Options

Pair the crib with an Alto Dresser or CredenzaAlto-Crib-Dresser-3Q-Lifestyle Alto-Credenza-Red-Front-Lifestyle

The matching bookshelf is a work of art as well.  Keep it up, Spot on Square!

Nursery Works New Cribs

Nursery Works is stepping up their game and reclaiming their position at the high end of the nursery furniture world.  Actually, they’re going beyond.  These new cribs are above the high end and are going for cutting-edge and ultra-chic.

The first brand new crib in their collection is the Contour Crib.

Contour Crib 2_L_1

The unique oval form of the Contour Crib is created by machined Baltic Birch plywood and I’m pretty sure the crib was designed to fit in that photo.  Wow.

 

6. Contour Crib_front_pad_L_1

By removing the front and back panels, the crib converts to a bassinet as well.  The Contour Crib retails for $7500 + $150 shipping, but if you can afford a view like the one in the photo, the price of the crib isn’t something you’d even give a second thought to.

Next from Nursery Works is the Halo Crib.

Halo Crib_L_1

The floating black walnut base is held up with a gold square base (24k gold plated aluminum).  Gasp!  Removing the front panel of the crib transforms it into a toddler bed.  This model retails for $6900 + $150 shipping.

7. Halo Crib with mattress front view_L_1

The last new crib is the Highlight Crib.

Highlight Crib 2L_1

An updated version of the District Crib, the Highlight Crib is 100% white oak.  The “highlight” part comes from the Fluoro Yellow powder-coated aluminum mattress support.  By removing one panel and flipping the crib over, it coverts to an adult-sized desk.

2. Highlight Crib front view_L_1

The Highlight Crib retails for $3900 + $150 shipping.

All the new cribs are available for pre-order and should be shipping 8/20/2014.

I also just want to share the gorgeous new photography for the Vetro Crib as well.  It’s kinda hard to see a clear crib, but I think the beauty of that is really captured here.

Vetro Crib in clear acrylic_L_1

2. S1000CA_crib_front_NoMattress_resize_W_1

The clear crib is not currently available online, but you can find it at Nursery Works retailers or order the shadow version.  All Vetro colors retail for $4500 + $150 shipping.

Luna Collection from CasaKids Designed by Roberto Gil

From design genius Roberto Gil, the Luna Collection from Casa Kids features a crib that converts into a bunk bed.

LUNACrib-03

Starting with the Luna Crib ($800), with a few additional parts, the crib transforms into a toddler bed, twin bed, and even into a bunk bed!  This is the ultimate piece of convertible furniture that will grow with your family.

Luna Collection from Casa Kids

The collection also has a matching dresser.

I’m so glad to have Casa Kids back in the crib business– even just as an excuse for me to send you to their website so you can browse all the amazing designs that don’t always apply specifically to nursery design.
