New Addition: Kids Seating from little nest

I’ve added a few new child sized seats to buymodernbabyseats.  These child-sized replicas of modern design classics from little nest would make an amazing addition to any child’s room.  I’ve had my eye on these lovelies since they were first available in Australia, and now we can order them in the US.  Their offerings include mini-e (Eames lounge chair) $900, the yolk (Egg Chair) $585, madrid (Barcelona Chair) $425, and le club (LC2) $425.  Make sure to visit their site and imagine the possibilities.

As a wanna-be chair collector I’ll admit to drooling over these.  I can’t imagine anything much cuter than my little boys relaxing in a mini-e or curled up in a play ball.

My Modern Nursery #9: Baby Sister, Reader Request

A reader requested help with her kids’ rooms.  The first is for a 10 month old girl (her big brother’s room is coming soon).  She needs lots storage in a small (10’7″‘ x 11’) space.  They already have a white crib, changing table and the Play Spot in Pink & Brown by Skip Hop.  The crib bedding is pink and white.  I have filled in my own version of what they already have and then finished the room up.

1- Oeuf Sparrow Wardrobe in White– $1160
An armoire is fantastic for storage because it is vertical.  Any simple armoire would work here.  A low cost option is any thrift store or craigslist armoire that you can paint white.  You can use the inside to hang clothing or add shelves to hold toys.  If the closet is good storage then a bookshelf or even wall of shelving might be useful instead.  Some less expensive options include:

4D Concepts Girl's Storage Bookcase, White ASPELUND Wardrobe with 3 doors

2- Oeuf Sparrow Crib White- $690
They already have a white crib but this is one that I like.

3- Nurseryworks Storytime Rocker in Microsuede– $800
With a 10 month old, they either have a seat in the room or don’t find the need for one.  This particular rocker is one of my favorites as the children get older because it’s perfect for, well, story time!  Some less expensive options are ($150, $143, $600):

LILLBERG Rocking chair

4- Pink Enamel Mezzuzah– $60

5- Smila Blomma Lamps from Ikea– $10 each

6- ABC Alphabet Animals from Ink Tree Press on etsy- $25

7- Pink Zebra Print Pillow from MiCasaBella on etsy– $29

8- Trondheim 6 Drawer Dresser– $280
Dresser drawers provide a lot of great closed in storage for clothes, games, toys linen etc…  If you have more space you can put two dressers next two each other, mimicking built-in-storage.  I put a dresser here to stand in for the changing table they already have.  Hopefully, the changer has some good storage and can perhaps be used as one as their little girl grows.

9- Fillsta Hanging Lamp from Ikea– $40

10- Cotton Monkey Organic Sweet Jane Crib Separates– $300
I chose this organic bedding set to stand in for the pink and white set they already have.

I also highly recommend making the most of the bedroom closet with a custom closet system.  We were able to avoid using a dresser in my son’s room by building drawers into the closet.  This saved a lot of space in the room.  We also built in lots of shelving there as well which stores most of his toys.

Bins, baskets, and buckets are great for storage and make it easy for the kids to clean up.  Find a system that works for you and for the things you need to store.  We keep our baby’s stuffed animals in a large plastic tub in the corner. It’s easy to dump everything out for play and then throw it all right back in when we’re done.

The last thing, but possibly the most important thing in storing and organizing is to get rid of as much as you can.  Be brutal, prioritize and donate what you can.  That stuffed animal tub of ours is getting pretty full.  Instead of trying to find more places to put them, I’m just going to get rid of the ones that aren’t enjoyed as much.  If you have basement or garage storage, put some toys and things in bins and rotate what you keep in the kids’ rooms from time to time.  This keeps things fresh and interesting when they look for things to play with.

New Addition: amy coe Crib and Changer

I am always happy to be able to share lower cost products that make modern design accessible to more people.  We can all drool over the Nurseryworks, ducduc, and Netto collections, but when it comes down to it, many of us see nurseries are temporary and we’re not all looking to buy heirloom pieces.

The Westport collection from amy coe is made for Babies R Us and features two-tone, white and pecan finishes.

My Modern Nursery #7

I think this modern nursery has a lot of potential.  It almost works as a neutral backdrop for whatever else you’d want to do with it.  I can imagine this in so many different spaces from lofts with exposed brick, to a room with elaborate traditional moulding and details.

1- Oilo Wheels Motif Crib Set– $400

2- Spot on Square Eicho Crib– $595

3- Duktig Mini-Kitchen from Ikea– $140

4- LZF Onion Pendant Light– $960

8- Toe the Line in Dark Lagoon– Floor Tiles from FLOR 8×10- $270

9- Toys from Ikea- $6-$13 each

10-  Eames Molded Plastic Rocker– $550

New Addition: Silver Moon Collection from Laura Rittenhouse Studio Furniture

I would love to see photos of the room where these pieces live.  Heirlooms indeed.  Can you imagine a nursery with mahogany changing table, armoire and/or crib topped off with custom sterling silver inlay?

I’ve had the crib on buymoderncribs for several years but just discovered the changer and armoire added to the collection. I was happy to add them to buymodernbaby today.

New Addition: Rapid Rocker by Ralph Rapson

This stylish chair was first built in 1939 for the museum of Modern art.  In 1948 knoll produced a similar chair as part of their ‘Rapson Line’.  Today the chair is back in production and you can be the proud owner of this modern, timeless rocker.

Read more about the history of this chair at KCMODERN.  It is now featured at buymodernbabyseats where you can find a great variety of gliders and rockers to choose from for your nursery.


New Addition: Grano Glider Recliner from Monte

Monte has added a new chair to their amazing collection of rockers and gliders.  In my opinion they are the benchmark for nursery seating.  Their latest addition is the Grano Glider Recliner— their first recliner.  It’s perfect for when you want to put your feet up but don’t want to take up extra floor space with an ottoman.  This chair is sleek enough to keep in your bedroom or in the living room as well.

Some argue that a rocker or glider is an unnecessary item in a nursery but I have found it to be an essential.  It’s not just a spot to sit while you’re nursing, but you will use it to snuggle during your bedtime reading routine for years and it’s a perfect place to sit and relax while you watch your child play.
