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!

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.
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!
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.
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?
But I KNOW I love the Lolly Collection.
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.
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.
Pkolino’s newest table and chair set, the Little Modern Table and Chairs, is now available for pre-order. $230
The table top is reversible with wood on one side and chalkboard on the other. The top is also split for easy access to storage underneath. It’s a nice marriage between P’kolino’s Chalk Table and their Little One’s Table and Chairs. Check out their website for their full selection of play tables.

When I arrive at ABC Kids Expo, I’ve got a pretty good idea about the things I’m going to see. I spend most of my time in the “Modern Child” area and I’ve got a list of all the companies whose booths I intend to visit.
But sometimes, you find some of the very best things when you’re just wandering. It was the last afternoon of my trip and I just walked up and down some of the more unfamiliar isles when I spied a little gem in the Beck to Nature booth. I must have been tired at that point because my photos came out particularly terrible, but these incredible little rocking horses caught my eye and I’ve been thinking about them ever since.
Check out the sixkid Rocking Horses.
This photo doesn’t even do them justice. They are just perfect, heirloom quality rocking horses with a timeless modern style (and a price to match $500 and $700). Believe me, if I could have gotten the big one home with me, I would have.
They also had the sixkid Kids Table and Grasshopper Kids Chairs on display and they’re both perfectly lovely. The table is covered with a biodegradable linoleum that is easy to clean and the chairs are ultra lightweight.
It’s just little thing like these that make me happy.

Here’s a sampling of my favorite interesting pieces from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child’s new collection.
First, I’ll be putting this Vintage Eye Chart on my personal wish list (hmmm- I think I have some credit at RH….). They also have an eye chart with real letters, but the Es are more graphic and since my name starts with an E, they are meaningful.
This Small World Ottoman is interesting but also a nice neutral piece ($129).
The European Dog Silhouette crib sheet and pillowcase (also twin and full sheet sets) sports a design that might be of interest to some. I like that it’s simple but has a fun pattern as well. ($44 for the sheet and $24 for a pillowcase)

Last November, I promised the Leander Dresser, Changer and High Chair were coming soon. In case you hadn’t yet noticed, they are now all available!
The clean-lined, slightly curvaceous Four Drawer Dresser is available in Chocolate, White and White Wash finishes for $1050. This piece is manufactured by Tulip and is really the best option if you’re looking for a dresser to go with the beautiful Leander Crib.
The Leander Changing Table has the same dramatic curves as the Leander Crib and converts to a desk after it completes its life as a changer. For $1275 its a wonderful companion piece to the crib.
The Leander high chair (shown at the desk above) is also available for purchase in the US now so if you’re looking for a bent wood chair that “grows” with you, this is one to consider. It is available in Black, Cherry, Natural, Walnut, White Wash for $280. Cushions in 8 different colors are an additional $50.
Finally, this beautiful Leander table and stool set is coming soon so we’ve got something else to look out for! This set is absolutely gorgeous.
First spotted this one on Minor Details!

You might already be familiar with Mod Mom Furniture‘s collection of beautiful modern toy boxes. Kiersten, who is responsible with the six incredible handmade designs, has been getting a lot of well-deserved attention for her work lately, which has included appearances on Shark Tank and The Nate Berkus show. As you can imagine, with all this exposure, Mod Mom Furniture has a great deal of momentum and they’re using it to introduce some brand new products!
First they’ve got this sweet Owyn Table and Stool set that goes with the Owyn toy box.
The set is Amish-made from sustainable Baltic Birch ply with low-VOC, Eco-Var finish. It retails for $375.
If you email email@example.com, you can order a set today. It will be added it to her website asap.
Kiersten has also been teasing us with the promise of an Owyn bedroom collection and you know I’ll share that with you as soon as I get photos. The collection is supposed to debut at ABC Kids in Louisville in September so if nothing else, I’ll get photos of it there.

If you love the products from P’kolino (as I surely do), but their color offerings haven’t really worked with your decor, this might open up the possibilities for you.
The Café con Leche Collection includes some of P’kolino’s most popular furniture items like the Toddler Bed, Little One’s Table and Chairs, Clothes Tree, Children’s Desk and Zebra Rocking Chair, but in a dark wood and white finish. The price for these pieces is slightly higher than their lighter and more colorful counter parts (as shown below). All the pieces are currently available for pre-order.
Toddler Bed and Chair- $300 (vs. $250 for the original)
Little One’s Table and Chairs- $190 (vs. $150 for the originals)
Clothes Tree- $120 (vs. $90 for the originals)
Children’s Desk- $100 (vs. $75 for the original)
Zebra Rocking Chair- $90 (vs. $70 for the original)
And while we’re on the subject of what’s new from P’kolino, I want to show you some of their wonderful new toys and puzzles.
The Fishing Hole Shape Sorter ($25) teaches children 1 and up colors and size recognition. The Geared Shape Sorter ($30) teaches children 18 months and older about shapes and colors and helps improve fine motor skills. These will be released on June 1st but can be pre-ordered now.
I love all the P’kolino puzzles and their new 3 (not shown), 6, and 12 piece puzzles are more to love. You can pre-order these today and they will be released on June 1st. They also have two new multi-solution puzzles, the Spaceship and the Owl. I really wish we had these all.
All the multi-solution puzzles are available right now for $20 a piece. These, along with any of the other P’kolino toys, make incredible gifts!
I have felt badly for a while that I don’t have a list of table and chair sets among my buymodernbaby product guides because there are so many beautiful choices out there. So I’m going to start sharing some of my favorites.
Today I’m sharing a few sets that come with a table and more than one chair.
P’kolino has a few great and reasonably priced sets.
Their newest collection, the Safari Collection includes this table and chairs set for $200 (with additional duck and ostrich chairs pictured- additional $100). I’ve also always liked their Chalk Table (below left) for $90 and Little One’s Table and Chairs Sets (below right) for $150 (available in white and orange).
Knu Kids Table & 2 Chairs Set comes as shown for $500.
This Anka Mini Furniture Set is a great deal for $200. It includes a table, three chairs and a stool.

I will get to these products in more detail when they become available for purchase and I add them to the guide at buymodernbaby.com, but I want to give you a look at my favorite furniture finds from ABC Kids Expo 2010. These are the new nursery furniture pieces that really jumped out at me. Let me know what you think.
First, I am absolutely in LOVE with this gorgeous table and chair set from Svan.
It’s so new that the designer only saw the actual prototype when it arrived in Vegas on Sunday night. The chairs are super sturdy, light and stackable. Don’t hold your breath for this set because we’ll have to wait another year before we can get our hands on it. I’d love to be first in line to order one.
Another great new furniture set that will be getting a lot of attention is the Overachiever from Q Collection Jr. They have some new bedding (which I will show you more of later), a larger version of their Stella Stackable storage, a twin bed with trundle and this amazing furniture set made to grow and last. Look carefully and you will see the bassinet is made up of the ends of the crib and the changing platform. Then you re-use the ends and the crib base for the toddler bed. This whole system takes you from newborn up until you’re ready to put your child into a twin bed.
Speaking of twin beds, Q Collection has this beautiful option with optional storage drawer/trundle (which was a requirement for me when I was looking for a bed for my oldest).
I was really excited to see some new items from Nurseryworks at the show They showed a new rocker and a new glider (with a base like the Goodnight Glider they used to have, but with a different seat) as well as the Hollis Crib and Changing Table made from clear acrylic. This see-thru crib has me scratching my head. I’m not quite sold on this idea but I’m glad they are thinking outside the box and coming out with new and different things!
Finally, my last favorite furniture find from the ABC Kids Expo this year is the Bamboo series crib and changing table from Seed Organic. This is a bamboo version of their Leaf Series, which I hate to say I had actually never seen before! Both the Bamboo Series and the Leaf Series feature a unique swivel top changing table and safety drawer retractor that automatically closes one drawer when another is opened.
What do you think of these finds? Do you have a favorite?
