Coming Soon: What’s New from Dutailier at ABC Kids Expo 2014

Dutailier is a fun new staple in the Modern Child section of the ABC Kids Expo. Since their modern furniture debut in 2011, I’ve been looking forward to seeing their annual displays.

This year Dutailier featured four new gliders for your modern nursery. First is the Capuccino shown here with a Melon Crib.

Finally, I liked this idea here of the headboard cover for the Melon bed.

So who did their nursery with Dutailier? I want photos!

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Coming Soon: What’s New from Monte at ABC Kids Expo 2014

In the drool-worthy category at the ABC Kids Expo 2014 is the Rockwell Bassinet featuring a walnut base and sleek chrome frame.

A variation on the Ninna Nanna Bassinet, the Rockwell Bassinet is an even more spectacularly modern design.

In the glider section, two limited edition gliders make up the Wool and Walnut collection.  Here’s a sleek Vola Glider in the wool and walnut combination.

This Luca Glider is shown in Oatmeal Wool with a solid walnut base.

Finally, I’m excited they’re adding a new color to their Cubino selection.  It’s been a while so I was happy to see this new yellow version.  Cute, right?! (photo via montedesign on instagram)

Amazing Nursery Furniture Collections from TULIP Juvenile and Natart

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.

Tulip Twin Bed

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.

Coming Soon: New From Monte Design at ABC Kids Expo 2013

We spotted two new items from one of our favorite modern nursery brands, Monte Design at the ABC Kids Expo 2013.

First, they’re introducing a walnut base on the Tavo High Chair.  This adds even more opportunity for you to match your highchair with your adult dining furniture, and the walnut just looks spectacular, no?

While giggle currently is the exclusive retailer for the beautiful new Como Glider, this will be more widely available in 2014.  In our last post we showed the Pebble Gray, but here you can see it in Sand.

Don’t you even just want one of these for your living room?

Coming Soon: New from Oilo at ABC Kids Expo 2013

Oilo shared lots of new and exciting developments at the 2013 ABC Kids Expo.  Everyone I talked to was excited to see three new bedding collections on display, but that was just the beginning!

The biggest news at Oilo for 2014 is that all their crib bedding will be sold a la carte.  The bumpers will retail for $180, crib sheets for $36 (striped) or $39 (patterned) and crib skirts for $118 (patterned) or $99 (solid).

The first new collections I want to show you is Zara.  I love Zara because it’s not quite a chevron but more of an updated zig-zag pattern.  You can’t go wrong with this bold gray set.

The Link motif in Stone is another new design at Oilo, and it’s paired with a solid crib skirt.  Link is offered on the sheet and a few other decorative accessories.

I’m also really excited about the new Bloom motif.  This is available as a patterned sheet with a solid skirt and there are a few additional Bloom accessories as well as other options in the Petal Pink colors.

Oilo

Brick and mortar retailers will also be offering Oilo’s Pure collection.  With pure white bumpers and skirts, the Pure collection can be mixed in with any of the other Oilo collections.  The pieces can also be enhanced with ties, piping and banding in any of Oilo’s signature colors.

Since more people are choosing crib bedding without bumpers, Oilo has reworked some of their previous popular patterns and updated them to suit this increasing trend.  Here you can see Modern Berries with a larger pattern on the sheet…

… and here you can see Cobblestone‘s updated look.

Oilo is also adding two gorgeous gliders to its furniture collection. The Bellingham and Nola gliders will be available in 2014 and retail for about $1400.

DSC_1557

Oilo’s new hassocks (shown above) can be ordered in all of Oilo’s fabrics and will retail for about $100.  Use these as an ottoman or beanbag chair and add a pop of your favorite Oilo design.

I think Oilo has a great concept going on with all the mix and match options that it has been developing.  You can really create a sophisticated and unique custom look that works perfectly for you.  If they just had drapery, you’d have all your fabric needs covered.

Monte Como Glider and Ottoman

The newest spectacular modern glider from Monte Design is a giggle.com exclusive and is now available for pre-order.  It comes in Pebble Gray (shown) and Sand.  The Como Glider and Como Ottoman are a brilliant new option in modern nursery seating but also would work beautifully in a more traditional space.

The glider retails for $1195 and the ottoman is $385 and both should be shipping soon.

New Grazia Glider from Monte

We got a preview of the Grazia Glider back in October, and now here she is. This is a great new addition to Monte’s unparalleled collection of nursery seating.  I love the high curved back, but what really sets this gorgeous glider apart is the brushed stainless steel base.  Like all of Monte’s gliders, it is available in a selection of colors and includes a solid lumbar pillow of your choice.  Here you can see it in Heather Grey with a Missoni pillow (an $85 option).   You can also choose the optional contrast piping on this glider and the matching Grazia Ottoman.

I just have to share a couple more photos because the back of this chair is just as hot as the front.

The Grazia Swivel Glider retails for about $1200 and the matching Grazia Ottoman is $445.

In the photo at the top you can also see Monte’s all new Duo Side Table, which is designed to sit perfectly next to your Monte glider or rocker.  It comes in walnut (shown $495), espresso and white ($395).

Nursery Seating for Under $500

Rockers and gliders are one of those nursery furniture pieces that take a big chunk of the budget.  Especially if you share our modern aesthetic, finding a rocking chair or glider that you really love for a price that you can be happy about is really difficult.  I was shooting for a top 10 list here, but I only found 8 that fit the bill (pun intended!).

1- Calla Glider- sale price $498  There are a couple more color options.
2- Baby Mod Rocker- $300 Available in 3 colors.
This is just like the Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker but with different color choices and $200 less.
3- Dorel Nolan Swivel Glider- $400 Available in 3 leather color choices.
4- Enchanted Coronado Glider- $400 Available in 4 colors.
5- Home Loft Concept Tufted Rocking Chair- $425
6- Modernica Arm Shell- $435  Comes in 20 colors and with 4 base options.
The Eames Molded Plastic Rocker is just over the $500 budget here so I selected the Modernica Fiberglass version.  You can find lots of other knockoffs of this design for even less.  For discussion of knockoffs visit here and here.
7- Rockabye Co. Velvet Lara Glider Chair- $450 Available in 3 colors.
8- babyletto Madison Swivel Glider, Slate- $350

I was trying to be rather selective about style.  There are other modern style gliders out there but some of the proportions were just so far off I couldn’t bear to subject you to them.

I can’t make any guarantees about the comfort or durability of these seats.  With so many things, you get what you pay for.  On the other hand, we got our glider (no longer available) for under $500 and after 7 years we’re still happy with how it looks and functions!

I welcome your suggestions if you know of anything good that I’ve missed!

New From Monte for 2013 at ABC Kids Expo

A perennial favorite on BuyModernBaby, Monte Design has a few new things in store for 2013.

The Grazia Glider is Monte’s roomiest glider to date.  What really caught my eye was the beautiful Stainless Steel swivel base under the seat.  Sorry you can’t really see it in this photo, but what you CAN see is the beautiful, authentic Missoni fabric lumbar pillow that will soon be available.

Monte’s upholstered Dorma Bed has a few new options.  It will soon be available as a Double as well as a Twin, and will have an optional trundle and toddler rails.

Finally, they are introducing a side table called the Duo.  This elegant little table measures 14″ wide and 20″ tall and will come in walnut, white and espresso.  While it’s made to go perfectly next to a Monte rocker or glider, this table will fit anywhere in your home!

I’ll let you know when these become available.
