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!

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.

Modern Crib Options at ABC Kids Expo 2014

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!

Fisher Price Soho Island Crib

The Soho Island Crib is a simple two-tone crib that retails for approximately $300.

Fisher Price Soho Island Cribs

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.

Ti Amo Moderna Collection Crib

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 Manhattan

Delta’s Urban 4-in-1 Crib ‘n’ Changer is a simple and space saving model for about $225.

Delta Urban

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!

Kolcraft Scanda

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!

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.

Here’s the Capuccino in another color…

Next is the Urban 770. It’s a compact model.

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.

Highlight Crib Nursery Works

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

Nursery Works Halo Crib

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.

Nursery Works Contour Crib

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

Nursery Works Empire Rockers

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.

The Lolly Collection will be available in this gray color in addition to the original white.Babyletto Lolly

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.

IMG_2967DSC_0235

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

Monte Bassinets

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.

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)

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

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.

Oeuf Fawn Collection

The Fawn Crib, which is lovely on its own, is extra special because it converts from the bassinet.

Oeuf Fawn Crib and DresserOeuf Fawn 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.

Oeuf River Twin Bed

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.

DSC_0058

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.
