So we’ve been waiting for the debut of the new Dutailier, and you should now be seeing these online and in stores.
First we’ve got the Verona Glider at giggle. It’s available in two nice neutral fabrics for $1000. You KNOW Dutailier knows how to make a comfy glider, but now they’re making ones that are beautiful enough to fit into your modern nursery design.
Next, if you Google the different nursery collections (Papaya, Melon, Mango and Pomelo), you can start to see some of them on various retailer sites. You can also search Dutailier’s website for a dealer near you. The prices vary by retailer and they are upwards of $1000 for the cribs. In addition to their unique designs, what I really love about these is how (with an additional kit) the cribs transform, not into toddler beds, but into twin beds. This REALLY significantly prolongs their life.
So, who’s interested?
These two gliders from Little Castle are their most sleek, modern new styles. These aren’t super inexpensive (the old model that I like, Monaco, is just under $700), but these simple designs will last a long time as they go from nursery to your own bedroom or den with ease.
Babyletto‘s new glider, the Madison Glider Rocker should be available in February 2012 and will retail for about $350.
I found these two seats at Newco. It seems that Jennifer Delonge has partnered with Newco to get these to you for less than $800. The one on the right is the Grand Glider for $800. It looks so much better in my photo than online. Not that my photos are good, but it does go to show that good photography makes all the difference (or at least that bad images are VERY bad).
I’ll add these gliders to BuyModernSeating as soon as they become available.
Monte was my first stop on the floor of the ABC Kids Expo. Ralph Montemurro was on hand to show me their brand new twin Dorma Bed, which is a fully upholstered bed with headboard, footboard and side rails.
There is also a new ottoman for the Joya Rocker and a new Heather Grey color shown here on a Luca Glider.
The new items will be available to order in stores and online in about six weeks.
After about five years, Monte gliders are still the benchmark for modern nursery seating. I can guarantee if they had been around when I purchased my nursery furniture (already 6 years ago!), there would be a Luca Glider in our home. And if somehow we were faced with a baby #3, I sure hope we’d have a Ninna Nanna bassinet to await him or her.
Wow. Wow. Wow. My mouth dropped open. I could NOT believe what I was seeing. I hadn’t even planned on visiting Dutailier. They were located way in the back corner of the furniture section, and they don’t usually have anything of great interest to me, so boy was I surprised at what I saw.
I’m just going to show you the photos right now and we’ll talk more about what’s going on later.
Here’s a closer look at some of the pieces:
Even their new gliders are WONDERFUL!
So? What do you think? Pick your jaws up off the floor and let me know!
Here’s a sampling of my favorite interesting pieces from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child’s new collection.
First, I’ll be putting this Vintage Eye Chart on my personal wish list (hmmm- I think I have some credit at RH….). They also have an eye chart with real letters, but the Es are more graphic and since my name starts with an E, they are meaningful.
This Small World Ottoman is interesting but also a nice neutral piece ($129).
The European Dog Silhouette crib sheet and pillowcase (also twin and full sheet sets) sports a design that might be of interest to some. I like that it’s simple but has a fun pattern as well. ($44 for the sheet and $24 for a pillowcase)
I love these sweet Bunny Bookends
($69 for the pair). I’d use these in almost any room of the house.
It’s always fun to see what unique offerings RH baby & child has collected for us and this season is no exception!
From time to time I browse what Costco.com is offering in their nursery furniture department. Usually there is nothing to share but I spied a little beauty today!
This Newco Luxe Glider with X-ottoman is just $800 including shipping. In one of three neutral colors, Ivory, Coffee and Chocolate, this could be the perfect glider for your nursery.
If this Luxe Glider with X Ottoman design looks familiar to you, you can find it on Jennifer Delonge’s website- though it’s shown with some fancier fabrics and the dimensions have been changed a bit.
The original Jennifer Delonge Luxe Glider (shown below) has a skirted base and gliding skirted ottoman. You can find this style starting at $990.
These are some of my favorite posts from around the web over the past week.
First of all, I have to show you this incredible (Not So) Mellow Yellow Mood Board from chalk + dot. Just paint the walls your favorite shade of gray and you’ve good to go! Visit the post for all the sources and the inspiration.
I seriously had no idea you could do this, but Honey & Fitz shared their secret of Converting an upholstered chair into a swivel glider. There is no longer any acceptable reason to have an ugly rocker or glider in you home.
Being a Floridian, I had to take note of babyology’s A Flock of Flamingos. Such a fun roundup (even though I’ve never actually seen a Flamingo in Florida!).
Coos & Ahhs rocked another “Word of the Week” post (they’re all incredible) with this super-fun elephant roundup. Twenty-two wonderful elephants 🙂
Remember Chic & Cheap Nursery’s guest post from last week? Well, (of course) she’s come up with a few more affordable options to get the look for the Pink & Navy Preppy Nursery. See Save vs. Splurge: Affordable Copy Cats for all her finds.
I promised to let you know when the new Nurseryworks rocker and glider came out and the time is now. I’ve added the Bungalow Rocker and Cole Glider to buymodernbabyseats and have a few new photos to share with you.
First up… the Cole Gilder…
The glider and ottoman are built with a plywood base and feature a slim silhouette at only 30″ wide (25″ for the ottoman). The ottoman has a little book shelf underneath. You can choose a light or dark base and one of three suede colors with or without contrasting piping. The glider retails for $700 and the ottoman is an additional $300.
The Cole Glider is almost like the Goodnight Glider used to be, but that one started at $1200 (not including the $620 ottoman). You might still be able to find a few of those out there. They’ll most likely be clearance (or ebay) items and could be worth finding if you’re looking for brighter, fun colors.
The next little beauty is the Bungalow Rocker.
The Bungalow Rocker is available with a Light Ash or Dark Ash base and in three suede colors. It retails for $800. You might have noticed me use it in a nursery design board several months ago!
I really liked the bright orange rocker that was shown in the Nurseryworks display at ABC Kids, but they are clearly going with some safer neutrals instead.
You can purchase both the Bungalow Rocker and the Cole Glider and Ottoman through my Modern Nursery affiliate links.
