Your love of good design may not exactly equate to a large nursery budget. I’ve certainly found this to be the case for me – a teacher’s salary isn’t compatible with some of the amazing design pieces now aimed at parents for their children. Although I’m a firm believer that if you buy well, you reap the rewards in terms of longevity and quality of construction.
Oeuf has just released a range of furniture – Robin – which allows those who either cannot, or will not spend big bucks to have a designer nursery. If we ever have a third baby I will be all over this range, with its clean lines and appealing combination of white with wood. The line includes a crib, a change table dresser and a toddler bed conversion kit so your baby has a bed up to age five.
With the aim of creating beautiful furniture for a world in financial difficulty, whilst honouring ecologically sensitive production methods, the Robin range is made from sustainable wood and finished in water-based non-toxic paints. I can only imagine how much effort went into creating furniture which costs considerably less than the Classic range. US prices run at $565 for the crib, $585 for the dresser and $145 for the conversion kit.
We’re hoping Kido Store will stock Robin. Stay tuned for updates about an Australian release. We will be seeing this range first hand at the ABC trade-show in Las Vegas next week so will let you know what we think.
