First for the nursery, there’s the beautifully feminine Posey collection.
Pieces in this collection include the dark Posey Percale Crib Skirt, the lighter Posey Canvas Crib Skirt, the Posey Fitted Crib Sheet, the Diamond Fitted Crib Sheet, two pillows, a play blanket, a night sack, bumper, hooded towel, changing pad cover, and bib and burp set.
The second new nursery collection is called Flight.
Pieces include a canvas crib skirt, percale crib skirt, flight crib sheet, compass crib sheet, play blanket, two pillows, a night sack, stroller blanket, hooded towel, changing pad cover, crib bumper and bib and burp set.
The kids collections are also worth mentioning.
The foundation of the modern nursery is the crib, but the price of the crib does not determine the fabulousness of the nursery. You can spend less on the crib and have more in the budget to spend on the fun stuff. Even a simple, inexpensive crib can be the crib over your dreams once you add your favorite bedding, the perfect plushie and your lovely little one.

There’s no denying that more traditional nursery furniture companies now have at least a modern style or two in their line, so I’m always sure to wander into the booths of brands that I wouldn’t typically visit at ABC Kids Expo. Here what I found.
First, Bivona is manufacturing nice modern cribs under a couple brand names. Most notably, we have their cribs for Fisher-Price!
The Soho Island Crib is a simple two-tone crib that retails for approximately $300.
They also have the Fisher-Price Riley Island Crib which retails for just about $250.
From Bivona’s Ti Amo brand, the Moderna Crib is a really nice style. It comes in the colors shown or all whie.
Delta Children has a few great modern collections and is working on more. This Manhattan 3-in-1 Crib is a great gray option. It’s reminicient of the Oeuf’s Sparrow crib but the legs are quite different and it retails for $250.
Delta’s Urban 4-in-1 Crib ‘n’ Changer is a simple and space saving model for about $225.
Their Hazel collection is the newest and my favorite. No price info on this one yet.
I also really like the toy box they had along side the display.
Kolcraft showed this Scanda collection which is by far the best looking thing I’ve ever seen from Kolcraft. In fact, we’ve never had the opportunity to mention them here on the blog ever before!
Finally, from Romina Furniture, which is usually a little frilly for our taste, this new New York collection is really exciting. I like the thin legs and the way you can customize the color and texture of the side panels. This is a crib that has lots of potential.
Hope I didn’t miss anything!
This year Dutailier featured four new gliders for your modern nursery. First is the Capuccino shown here with a Melon Crib.
Here’s the Capuccino in another color…
Next is the Urban 770. It’s a compact model.
Then they’ve got the Alsace Glider, shown here with the Pomelo collection.
Finally, I liked this idea here of the headboard cover for the Melon bed.
So who did their nursery with Dutailier? I want photos!

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.
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.
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.

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.
Since Oeuf got the most “likes” on our ABC Kids Expo 2014 Instagram feed, it’s the first brand we’re going to cover.
One of the things I’m most excited about from the expo this year is Oeuf’s Fawn collection.
The Fawn Crib, which is lovely on its own, is extra special because it converts from the bassinet.
The bassinet-to-crib should retail for $980 and is expected Spring 2015. A matching dresser will be part of the collection as well.
This River Twin Bed is a beautiful alternative to Oeuf’s Sparrow bed. I love the safety rail as well as the bench at the foot of the bed. It’s your twin alternative to the Perch Toddler Bed. The River Twin Bed will retail for $740 with the trundle ($300) and rail ($100) as add on accessories. These are also expected in the spring.
I was also glad to see that Oeuf’s table and chair set is still in the pipeline. This should be out by January. The table is $270, a set of TWO chairs is $226 and the stickers will be about $20.
Oeuf will also be coming out with it’s own bedding for cribs as well as big kid beds.
Patterns include tiny dots as well as these cute cherries. We’ll post more as the products are released.
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.
