Since I went to a baby shower last Saturday, designing a nursery inspired me to write this post. I am into modern cribs. Since modern cribs tend more expensive than the traditional cribs at Pottery Barn Kids, why not go for convertible cribs or cribs that serve two duties? It is more eco-friendly to extend the life of the baby furniture.
+ The Casa Kids Ola crib is supposed to be the only crib sold today that converts to both a Toddler bed and a Twin bed. At $899, the starter crib compares with wood cribs at other stores. The cribs component will be reused later. The side rails will become the headboard and footboard of the Ola Twin Bed.
+ The AJ crib by ducduc comes with a bookcase attached to one side. For an extra $45, you can add doors to convert the bookcase in an armoire. Kids clothes and other baby accessories should fit well inside. It comes in 10 finishes. The AJ crib starts at $1450 USD
The Alex crib with an optional applique word on the side starts at $950 USD.
+ For space savings, the Studio crib designed by Truck Product Architecture for Nurseryworks provides a hideaway-changing table with closed storage on the side of the crib. This pricier modern crib also converts to a toddler daybed and built-in desk. $2095 CAD at ModernKid | $2100 USD at Modern Nursery
Note that the Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker in Velvet is on sale at $450 (50% off) at Modern Nursery. Available in several fabric colors and wood types.
