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.
The Joya Rocker looks amazing with a new sand fabric and natural maple base.
While most of the time, simpler is better, The Land of Nod has really hit the right note with these fun kids chairs. Designed by Michelle Romo, the Executive Pet Nod Chairs are some of the cutest cartoony little things. Furniture like this don’t usually get the BMB seal of approval, but here they are in all their adorable perfection, ready for your little ones to fall in love with their special reading spot.
The chairs retail for $130, or you can buy a new cover for your existing Nod Chair for $80.

January is always full of exciting new product releases from so many of my favorite companies, but I always look forward to seeing (and shopping) the new offerings from The Land of Nod. There’s LOTS of cool new stuff, but here are some of my favorites…
The Ellipse furniture collection includes a mid-century inspired bed, nightstand and dresser. It’s a great option for big kids.
Finally, the perfect book storage with easy access for the littlest readers, the Open Book Bin comes in Grey, Walnut and Espresso.
A new take on the faux taxidermy trend, the giraffe, zebra and elephant heads are funkier than most.
These colorful pendant shades will add a serious pop of color wherever you use them. The pendants and cords are sold separately so you can mix and match those.
The cure for boring storage bins, the Landscape Floor Bins are as colorful as anything you’ll store inside them.
There are several new crib bedding options and you should always browse The Land of Nod when you’re looking for crib bedding. Check out Field Guide, Beaucoup de Fraises and Elephants in the Room in particular.
I had started wondering when we’d be seeing this little chair from Bloom. I spotted it LAST year at ABC Kids Expo, and since they weren’t at the show this year, I didn’t know what the story was until now.
Here it is… Bloom’s Pogo 3-in-1 bentwood step-stool, booster and child’s chair.
You can pre-order it now.
shopping guide: easel kids furniture play table toy box trucks
I’m delinquent blogging about Tambino, but a couple of their newest products ensured that I could no longer keep this brand to myself.
As soon as I spotted their amazing new Typographic Easel, I had to let you take a look. The easel is shown here with the Typographic “H” Chair and the Typographic “K” chair. Oh, the letter A as an easel. How perfect.
Then there’s this brand new little beauty. The Pickup (Your Toys) Truck is part toy chest and part kid’s desk. Fun and function all in one. Make room in your playrooms. I adore it!
These number tables are unlike any others. They’re the ones I’ve been long overdue showing you. Pick an oversized 2, 3, 5 or 6 table. There’s also an 8 Activity Table (not shown). They all have numbers for legs as well. How cool would it be if your preschool used tables like these?!
You can also enjoy the numbers in a smaller stepstool form. The 2 and 4 Stepstools are available in a variety of colors.
Tambino has also been getting some attention for their use of the number 5 as a Toddler Table Stand!
At this point, can you imagine how excited Count Von Count is getting?
And if you want to go really batty with Tambino, check out their modular cushion sets like this starfish.
I’ve shown you MUCH of what Tambino offers, but to see it all, I invite you to visit their site and take a look at the rest. If you’re ready to buy, feel free to use my affiliate link and visit their Amazon Shop.
Some companies make beautiful furniture for kids. Some make their beautiful furniture smaller for kids. Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams (one of my favorites for grown-up furniture) have a collection of mini chairs sized just for kids. This is for when you really want the kids’ furniture to blend in with the decor.
Clockwise from the left we have the Luc Kids Chair ($595), Lil’ Alexa Kids Chair ($575), and Mini Sadie ($445). The chairs in the photo can be ordered online as shown. You can also special order the chairs to your own specifications or in leather through a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams retailer.
Monte Design is a Buy Modern Baby staple. Their rockers and gliders are the benchmark for modern nursery seating and their bassinet, high chair and new twin bed are equally beautiful, simple and well-crafted. While those should all be on your nursery wish lists, your gift list this year might include Monte’s Cubino Chair and/or Loveseat. Cubino is the kids chair that is perfectly at home in the living room as well as any nursery, bedroom, playroom or family room.
Monte Design is graciously offering Buy Modern Baby readers a chance to win a Cubino Chair ($109) in the colors of their choice. These kid sized chairs (recommended from 18 months to 7 years) are made of thick, durable foam and are covered in soft micro suede. Cubinos come in eight color combinations: Charcoal with Orange, Green, Blue or Pink and Brown with Orange, Green, Blue or Pink.

I usually only post products that are available for purchase or that will be coming soon, so this post is a little different. I have been hearing about Kickstarter here and there online, and when I got an email about this Little Frog Kickstarter project, I was excited to take a look.
Chadwick Parker and Joe Huang are trying to raise $40,000 to bring you these cute and fun 3-in-1 Little Frog play tables/chairs.
The video really goes into all the details…
As you can see, these are really cute (my 5 year old said so!) and totally fun. Your kickstarter “pledges” are almost like product pre-orders. For example, a $100 pledge reserves 2 monster toys and a 3-in-1 Little Frog in any of the five colors– red, yellow, green, blue and purple.
So help kick start the 3-in-1 Little Frog and be among the first to have this versatile, creative and fun piece of kids furniture. Visit Kickstarter for all the details and to make your pledge. Good luck guys!
