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?
I love this White / Washed Natural combination. $400
The matching Dresser with Changer Top is $430. Gotta love this collaboration between The Honest Company and Babyletto!

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)
I MAY be using this crib in our next nursery board. Follow along on Pinterest as that inspiration develops.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The last new crib is the Highlight Crib.
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.
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.
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.
4 great new cribs join the nursery furniture collection at The Land of Nod this fall.
So, have you found the perfect crib yet?

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

They call it retro, but it’s really a unique new modern crib with a fresh style for 2014. These are the kind of curves I like on a crib. No sleighs, no arches, just a slightly rounded shape that softens the modern style just a smidgen.

I’m merely posting this for your entertainment… at $16,320,000, the Dodo Bassinet Solid Gold from Suommo has got to be the most expensive bassinet of all time. I imagine it being the bed of choice for the offspring of ancient Pharaohs.
Fortunately, the bedding is included. How about throwing in the child’s college education while we’re at it?
For the older baby, the Bela Luxury Cot Gold Edition is merely $62,288 but I’m afraid the bedding is an additional $5,168. For some reason they throw in a free bottle of water.
I’m not even going to mention the pacifier– oh wait, I just did.
Have I sufficiently knocked your socks off?
The Honest Crib is a 4-in-1 Convertible Crib with styling and Weathered Gray finish that works equally well in a modern or traditional nursery. Designed by Babyletto and available exclusively from The Honest Co., the Honest Crib retails for just $400. It converts from crib to toddler bed, daybed and full-size bed (rails sold separately $100).
When you buy an Honest Crib, The Honest Co. will also give one to a family in need.

One of my favorite visits at the ABC Kids Expo 2013 was the TULIP Juvenile / Natart Juvenile display. With an entirely new, super-modern collection, I had a blast just listening in on the sales director’s product demonstrations. I took a seat in one of their incredibly comfortable (and ultra functional) new gliders and just enjoyed the show.
Tulip debuted the Soren Collection, which features angled legs with Mid Century inspiration. The round crib shown here converts to a desk.
The Soren Quattro is a crib and dresser combo which later converts to a twin bed and dresser.
The Soren Bunk is fully upholstered and includes four ladders so it can be placed anywhere in a room.
The Soren collection includes a total of 13 pieces so there’s lots to choose from.
The Natart Line features two new glider/recliners that are really unique. The Parker has the square back…
… and the Hannah is a round backed style. Both styles are available in Taupe or Gray microfiber or white or charcoal bonded leather.
What is really interesting about the gliders is that their arms can be raised individually, which can make nursing or just holding baby more upright more comfortable and relaxing. They also have a removable headrest that can better accommodate taller parents or can be used over the armrest for extra padding. These are some really neat new seats to consider.
You should be seeing these products at your favorite local baby stores very soon. They were a bit hit among retailers.

This is one of my FAVORITE posts in my ABC Kids Expo coverage each year. I love to find new modern styles and options in out of the way corners. It’s easy to find modern furniture in the “Modern Child” section, but brands with more traditional lines are increasingly testing out modern designs and I love to showcase them.
First, my mouth nearly dropped open when I spotted this spectacular collection from Capretti Design. The quality of these is unmistakable. This is some serious construction and craftsmanship– Amish made in the US– and it’s beautifully obvious when you see these in person.
They’re calling this their Mid-Century Collection and it’s solid Walnut finished in tung oil. The crib retails for $2500 and the dresser is $3000.
Basically, I really just want this dresser in my bedroom asap!
Capretti Design’s Mid-Century Collection will be available in Sprout San Francisco locations (Manhattan, Chicago and San Francisco), Firefly Furnishings in Denver and Give Wink in the Miami area. I may have to stop at Give Wink to get another look!
I stopped in to see what the Australian brand Boori is up to and I discovered Boori’s Urbane brand, featuring two great modern collections. Omni includes a crib that converts into a twin size bed, a wardrobe and a dresser.
The Urbane collections are priced reasonably (Omni crib is about $600 and the Lucia crib is about $400) and are even Greenguard certified.
Next, at Childcraft, I noticed the Soho crib in this two-tone Oiled Oak / Putty combination. This is a beauty for under $300. I had to ask again whether that was the RETAIL price and they insisted it is. So if this is what you’re looking for, just wait until February or March.
Here is another version of the Soho crib, which incidentally converts to a toddler bed, day bed and full bed. The base on this version is a little different and I believe this one had plexiglass sides, which is kinda cool. I recommended they do this crib in white as well. We’ll see if they listen.
The Soho collection also includes a changing table, dressers, night stand and student desk.
Next, at Storkcraft, I discovered a collaboration between notNeutral and Zutano that has resulted in some really cool furniture. The notNeutral BB2 Convertible Crib comes in this color combination as well as white/espresso and white/natural.
Here you have the Tivoli Convertible Crib and Changer and the 3-Drawer Dresser. This will come in six color combinations which is good because this Expresso/Cloud combo is not my favorite.
I much preferred this Sunny / Natural combo that was on display at the Zutano booth. Cool, right?
Finally, I couldn’t help but be taken in by the sleek minimalism at Quax. This is not yet being distributed in the US but maybe they had some luck making contacts at the Expo.
What I really loved was how the crib converts into that awesome sofa down there.
I predict we are going to be seeing more of this feet first changing position making its way into more US nurseries. It really just makes more sense even though here it really blocks that top drawer.
The collection at Quax even included a toy box AND they make the plush toys and bedding shown in the display as well.
Would you be interested in something THIS minimal?
