P’kolino Nursery Rocking Chair

Coming this December from P’kolino, their Nursery Rocking Chair is a new expansion of their nursery line.

P'kolino Nursery Rocking Chair

Designed to be the most comfortable seat in the house, this modern rocking chair features easy to clean micro-fiber upholstery with aluminum legs and solid beech rockers. Pre-orders are currently available at the special price of $400. Regular retail price will be $450.

Margaux, Ami and Ballad from Nurseryworks

Nursery Works continues to elevate the modern nursery to the level of art and sculpture. If you’re looking for something extraordinary, they are providing a unique vision in the world of modern nursery furnishings. Three new designs have just debuted in their collection and I’d love to show them to you.

Ami Rocker from Nursery Works

First, designed by Chelsea Park, the Ami Rocker is bold design with rounded wool cushions on a tubular steel frame that transforms from a rocker and bassinet into a double seat rocker.

It comes in this pink color they’re calling “Red” and retails for $1250.

The perfect paring with the Ami Rocker is the Margaux Dresser, also a Chelsea Park design. It has the same tubular steel frame and features push drawers and a granite top. This retails for $4500. I look forward to seeing this one in person!

The Ballad Rocker, designed by Matthew Grayson, is a whimsical rocker with a twisted steel frame and a comfortable wide seat and seat back. It retails for $2200. You can see it in the space above as well.Ballad Rocker two angles Nursery Works

How can you not be impressed with what they’ve got going on here? Keep it up, Nursery Works!

Jackson Rocker from Monte Design

Jackson Rocker from Monte Design

It’s the perfect companion to the Rockwell Bassinet but also a stunning piece of furniture in it’s own right. Monte Design is upping its already top notch game with the stunning design of the Jackson Rocker.

You can’t go wrong with this pairing of chrome and walnut, and you can choose your fabric and lumbar pillow color. $1200

New From Monte at ABC Kids Expo 2015

Last year we went nuts for Monte‘s Rockwell Bassinet and this year they followed it up with the coordinating rocker, the Jackson Rocker!

This should be available at the end of January and will retail for about $1200.

Monte’s other new debut is the Opie toddler chair. These are the perfect kids chairs for your modern living space and I’m envious of anyone who has children small enough to enjoy these! The Opie chair will retail for about $300 and should be available before the holidays.

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

springwood-crib

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

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.

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.

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)

Fun New Play Kitchen From Sprout

We’ve seen their clever eco-friendly products in the most stylish nurseries (here and here) and in one of my nursery boards, but now Sprout has a fun new Kids Play Kitchen that’s detailed enough for the kids to recognize, but simple enough to blend into your home.

Sprout Kitchen

I’m also intrigued by this fun looking Whale Chair.

Both the kitchen and the chair are available in Green, Gray, Orange, White and Pink; feature easy to assemble tension lock technology; and retail for $135.

I can’t wait to add these to my Rocking Toys and Play Kitchen Pinterest boards!

Coming Soon: What New From the Million Dollar Baby Family at ABC Kids Expo 2013

The MDB Family of brands had a really strong showing at ABC Kids Expo 2013.  With brands like Babyletto, Nursery Works (used to be one word- now it seems to be two), and Ubabub under its umbrella, they have a whole range of products for modern nursery furniture lovers across the board.

First from Nursery Works, the Vetro Crib looks better than ever in this gray Shadow Acrylic color.  While the completely clear one disappears a little too much, the Shadow Vetro is a dark crib with a nice level of transparency.

Nurseryworks Gray Vetro Crib

Nursery Works also showed off it’s Empire Rocker in this crazy custom camouflage fabric.  It’s a great reminder that any of their rockers can still be ordered with your custom fabric choices, but most importantly, notice that this isn’t actually a rocker!  You will be able to order replacement legs to change your rocker into a stationary chair.  This is a great way to extend the life of your furniture!  I believe the replacement legs will be about $200.

It’s always a pleasure to see the Ubabub pieces in person, but they also debuted the prototype of the Pod Dresser.  Designed to coordinate with the incredible Pod Cot, I hope to see a version of this available before too long!

Ubabub Pod Dresser

Babyletto is entering the world of toddler furniture in a big way next year.  With THREE new table and chair sets, they’re covering a range of modern styles.  I can’t decide which I like best.

DSC_1464

No, I lied.  This Lemonade Playset is my favorite!

And it’s not just table and chair sets from Babyletto.  Their Skip toddler bed is really sweet.

I’m not sure how I feel about Babyletto’s new rocking chair.  Thoughts?

DSC_1469

But I KNOW I love the Lolly Collection.

DSC_1471

Finally, Babyletto is entering the textile business and I’m super impressed with the results.  Designed in-house, the top two designs on each side will be released first with the bottom patterns coming out further in the future.  You can also look for Pure Core and Coco Core non-toxic mattresses from Babyletto in 2014.  These will come in regular and mini crib sizes.

Babyletto Bedding

Last but not least, DaVinci’s ever-popular Jenny Lind crib will soon be available in this sunny yellow color.

Congratulations to the MDB Family on a great show.  To celebrate, they’re offering you 10% off any purchase on Babyletto.com from now through November 15th.  Unfortunately that won’t cover any of the new things here, but they do already have a great collection.

Nursery Seating for Under $500

Rockers and gliders are one of those nursery furniture pieces that take a big chunk of the budget.  Especially if you share our modern aesthetic, finding a rocking chair or glider that you really love for a price that you can be happy about is really difficult.  I was shooting for a top 10 list here, but I only found 8 that fit the bill (pun intended!).

1- Calla Glider– sale price $498  There are a couple more color options.
2- Baby Mod Rocker– $300 Available in 3 colors.
This is just like the Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker but with different color choices and $200 less.
3- Dorel Nolan Swivel Glider– $400 Available in 3 leather color choices.
4- Enchanted Coronado Glider– $400 Available in 4 colors.
5- Home Loft Concept Tufted Rocking Chair– $425
6- Modernica Arm Shell– $435  Comes in 20 colors and with 4 base options.
The Eames Molded Plastic Rocker is just over the $500 budget here so I selected the Modernica Fiberglass version.  You can find lots of other knockoffs of this design for even less.  For discussion of knockoffs visit here and here.
7- Rockabye Co. Velvet Lara Glider Chair– $450 Available in 3 colors.
8- babyletto Madison Swivel Glider, Slate– $350

I was trying to be rather selective about style.  There are other modern style gliders out there but some of the proportions were just so far off I couldn’t bear to subject you to them.

I can’t make any guarantees about the comfort or durability of these seats.  With so many things, you get what you pay for.  On the other hand, we got our glider (no longer available) for under $500 and after 7 years we’re still happy with how it looks and functions!

I welcome your suggestions if you know of anything good that I’ve missed!

Kennedy Rocking Chair from Thrive Furniture

If you’re looking for a rocking chair that will fit in any room of the house, take a look at the Kennedy Rocking Chair from Thrive Home Furnishings.

It is available with 19 fabric options for $950.  What do you think?  Should I add it to the rocking chair guide?
