P’kolino Nursery

With P’kolino’s new customizable nursery pieces, the possibilities are literally endless. They have just introduced three nursery furniture collections as well as bedding and wallpaper.

My favorite new items are the Luce Collection. As with all the P’kolino nursery furniture items, there are different panel color and pattern options. You can even upload your own artwork to truly make it your own.

Luce Crib Customized

The Luce Convertible crib transforms into a lovely toddler bed with no additional pieces to order and the Luce Dresser features up to two customizable drawers.

The second P’kolino collection is Bianco.

It looks lovely in all white, but the side panels and drawer fronts can be customized.

The matching P’kolino Dresser features up to three customizable dresser fronts. The crib converts to a toddler bed which is shown below with the optional crib drawer accessory.

The third crib is Grigio which also has customizable panels and converts into a toddler bed.

The bedding collections coordinate with the colors and patterns, and removable tempaper tots wallpaper finishes off the look.


These are exciting additions to the modern nursery world and with cribs starting at $500, they’re worth considering for your baby’s space.

New Novella Crib and Dresser from Nursery Works

After debuting several new cribs last year, I didn’t expect to see anything else from Nursery Works for a while, so I was super excited to learn about the Novella Crib and Dresser.

With mid-century style, solid ash slats and walnut stained frame, the Novella Crib ($1000)…

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.


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!

Land of Nod -bassinets

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

New for the Nursery from Room and Board

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.

The Flynn Crib comes stocked in Walnut or Ocean (shown above). You can also special order one of 10 different base colors. The crib retails for $800 except the Walnut base version which is $900.

The Flynn Dresser comes in a 6 drawer ($1200) and 4 drawer ($800) version with the same color options as the crib.

The Colton Swivel Glider is available in boucle and velvet fabrics and retails for $800 to $900 depending on the fabrics. A matching ottoman is available for $400 to $450.

You really can’t go wrong with one of each, and your nursery can be totally unique with your color choices.

Bloom Retro Nursery Collection

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.

oak nyc Bloom Retro nursery

From Bloom, the Retro Crib is a solid wood crib “inspired by mid-century design.”  It is available in Coconut White as well as Oak.

The matching Retro Dresser comes with a white frame and your choice of Coconut White, Frost Grey or Oak drawer fronts.  The crib can be converted to a toddler bed with the Retro Bed Rail.

Both the crib and the dresser are available right now and retail for $1200 each.  In case you’ve got to have this collection, feel free to order yours through our giggle affiliate links.

Coming Soon: Furniture Finds from the ABC Kids Expo 2013

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.

Lucia includes a crib that converts to a sofa, full bed conversion kit, dresser, wardrobe, changer and a bassinet.  The entire collection is available in white as shown or in espresso as well.

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.  DSC_1498

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?
Any favorites?

Coming Soon: What New From the Million Dollar Baby Family at ABC Kids Expo 2013

The MDB Family of brands had a really strong showing at ABC Kids Expo 2013.  With brands like Babyletto, Nursery Works (used to be one word- now it seems to be two), and Ubabub under its umbrella, they have a whole range of products for modern nursery furniture lovers across the board.

First from Nursery Works, the Vetro Crib looks better than ever in this gray Shadow Acrylic color.  While the completely clear one disappears a little too much, the Shadow Vetro is a dark crib with a nice level of transparency.

Nurseryworks Gray Vetro Crib

Nursery Works also showed off it’s Empire Rocker in this crazy custom camouflage fabric.  It’s a great reminder that any of their rockers can still be ordered with your custom fabric choices, but most importantly, notice that this isn’t actually a rocker!  You will be able to order replacement legs to change your rocker into a stationary chair.  This is a great way to extend the life of your furniture!  I believe the replacement legs will be about $200.


It’s always a pleasure to see the Ubabub pieces in person, but they also debuted the prototype of the Pod Dresser.  Designed to coordinate with the incredible Pod Cot, I hope to see a version of this available before too long!

Ubabub Pod Dresser

Babyletto is entering the world of toddler furniture in a big way next year.  With THREE new table and chair sets, they’re covering a range of modern styles.  I can’t decide which I like best.


No, I lied.  This Lemonade Playset is my favorite!


And it’s not just table and chair sets from Babyletto.  Their Skip toddler bed is really sweet.


I’m not sure how I feel about Babyletto’s new rocking chair.  Thoughts?


But I KNOW I love the Lolly Collection.


Finally, Babyletto is entering the textile business and I’m super impressed with the results.  Designed in-house, the top two designs on each side will be released first with the bottom patterns coming out further in the future.  You can also look for Pure Core and Coco Core non-toxic mattresses from Babyletto in 2014.  These will come in regular and mini crib sizes.

Babyletto Bedding

Last but not least, DaVinci’s ever-popular Jenny Lind crib will soon be available in this sunny yellow color.


Congratulations to the MDB Family on a great show.  To celebrate, they’re offering you 10% off any purchase on Babyletto.com from now through November 15th.  Unfortunately that won’t cover any of the new things here, but they do already have a great collection.

Oiled Wood Finish from Kalon Studios

It’s almost too beautiful for words.  I already loved the American-made solid wood nursery collections from Kalon Studios, but their Echo Crib and Dresser and Caravan Crib and Dresser are now available in an oiled wood finish that is magnificently modern and truly timeless.

echo crib and dresser oiled room

If you don’t want to be stuck with a color choice and are tired of two-tone nursery furniture, the gorgeous natural oiled wood finish is a reason to shop Kalon Studios for your modern nursery.

Caravan Crib and Dresser Oiled Finish

I’m thrilled with this new option.
