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!
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

After furniture, my favorite booths at the ABC Kids Expo are full of decor pieces and design inspiration. These were my seven favorite decor booths and the great new products from some really cool and fun brands.
First were the adorable soft goods from blabla.
I’m crazy about the new Sun Pillow and the Flower Pillow. These are already available on blabla’s website.
Their two newest dolls are Marigold the Flower and Bluebelle the Flower, and they also had some fresh bedding patterns for preview.
Manny & Simon is another great source for modern decor and toys and their booth was fantastic.
I’m especially excited about their new line of banks.
The mini vehicle collections are sweet…
… and the Police Car is the latest edition to their line of push toy vehicles.
Finally, I think their new wooden teethers are going to be a huge hit.
Pearhead has a great selection of personal gifts items like frames and photo albums, but I thought their new line of photo milestone accessories is crazy cute.
My favorites were the Photo Prop Talk Bubble…
… and the Age Block Sets. These are fun to use and make great gifts.
You can find these earth-friendly organic products on their website or at some great shops throughout North America.
There were lots of exciting new products from Wee Gallery including these incredible Merino Baby Blankets,
and ceramic dining pieces.
We’ve recently become fans of Lucy Darling and I was excited to take a look at their product lines in person.
From the art prints to the monthly photo stickers and closet dividers, everything is as sweet as can be.
Last but not least, it was fun to see Petit Pehr‘s collection and new designs.
I’m in love with the adorable character pillows…
… and the new bug bins are adorable.
So many great designs for your storage needs.
There is no shortage of great new decor accessories for the modern nursery going into 2015! It’s always exciting.
You know I always love to keep you up to date on 3 Sprouts, so you’ve got to take a look at the new offerings shown at ABC Kids Expo 2014.
First, and most excitingly, a new product! Lunchboxes!! These insulated lunchboxes are cute as can be with a silver background. There are six lunchbox animals to start.
Two new bath caddies are the snail and lizard? iguana? chameleon?
Two new storage bins are the snake and the rhino.
And the shark and polar bear are the newest (and cutest!) bath storage pieces.

And I’m digging the new Orangutan Laundry Hamper ($25).
It’s always fun to see when 3 Sprouts expands their collection.
It’s fun to see most of the Baby & Kids collection from Petit Pehr available at giggle. Their fun patterned sheets, pillows, blankets and storage pieces are an easy way to decorate and add fun color to a neutral space.
The blue and red pieces also come in yellow and gray…
I hope they start carrying the pink and yellow version as well– it would be perfect in a nursery board I’ll be debuting later this week!
The Amsterdam cabinets from This is Dutch are spectacular, large, and guaranteed to add whimsy and drama to any space, but maybe the Brownstone Bookcase from The Land of Nod would do the trick in your home.
If the price difference doesn’t sway you yet, keep in mind that the $1300 price tag is for EACH cabinet and THREE are shown in the photo. Either way, both cabinets are a lot of fun and a great way to store the mess behind closed doors.

coming soon!: ABCKids bunk bed nursery furniture storage table and chair set toddler bed
Oeuf has some really cool new additions to its collections coming in 2014.
The first item that was getting a lot of attention was this beautiful toddler table and chair set. I love the style of the legs. The table will come with two chairs. There are also two styles of chairs– with a plain straight back…
… or with bear or rabbit ears. In the photo above you can also see Oeuf’s new fabric sticker collection that can be used to decorate the chairs, your walls or any other smooth surface that could use a silly face!
Oeuf will also be offering this new toddler bed as a less expensive alternative to the Classic Toddler Bed.
The amazing Perch bunk bed (which I’m obsessed with) will be available as a full size loft to better suit older children in need of more space.
And check out the new additional storage accessories. This shelving just hooks over the bed frame.
And this cabinet can stand alone or be hooked to the bed as well. I want one of these as a bench under Mr. 4’s window!
Thanks to Oeuf for the tour and I can’t wait to see these pieces come out. I hope to own some soon!
It’s always fun to see the 3 Sprouts collection in person, and play the “which animal is new?” game.
You can never have too many storage bins ($30) and my most recent favorite is the dinosaur.
I was excited to find new toy boxes in the mix. These are some of the largest containers offered at 3 Sprouts and are a great new addition to the collection. I particularly love the whale.
The newest laundry hamper is the Swan and it’s already available online. ($25)
The stroller organizers have been a hit, and being from Florida, I hope to see the alligator out asap!
Thanks for the colorful visit 3 Sprouts!

Arm’s Reach Concepts is known almost exclusively for their line of co-sleepers. While they are the experts when it comes to functional co-sleepers (bassinets that attach to the side of an adult bed), the designs of their products thus far haven’t been quite blog-worthy. Coming next month however, ARC is branching out in the the world of nursery furnishings and their first collection, the Contempo Crib and Changing Dresser are worth sharing and taking a look at.
The Aurora Contempo Designer Crib can be pre-ordered now and is expected to ship in October. It is a 4 in 1 convertible that transforms from crib to toddler bed, daybed and a full-size bed (with additional conversion kits). This new crib retails for $726.
To round out your nursery set, the Aurora Contempo Changing Dresser is available for $526. After diapering days are over, the changer makes a good bookshelf or TV stand and the changer can be reused as a coffee table tray.
I hope this new style transfers back to their co-sleeper line. What do you think of the new pieces?
