Welcome Newport Cottages!

ImageWe are thrilled to announce the addition of the Newport Cottages line to modernnursery.com! We’ve coveted their designs for quite a while now and can’t wait to share their unique style with you. Here’s some of what they have to say about their quality and construction:

All of our furniture pieces are benchmade from select hardwoods. Quality craftsmanship and traditional woodworking techniques are implemented, such as mortise & tenon joinery, rail & stile construction, as well as inlaid raised panels. The term “benchmade” is used when an item is individually built from start to finish on the bench of a highly skilled carpenter. Artisans hand turn all posts and legs for each piece of furniture. In an era of mass production, imports and computerized machinery, this is an art form seldom used by most furniture manufacturers.

In addition to their focus on detail, they have built out a line of goods that spans the design world. From modern to traditional to somewhere inbetween, there is something for everyone. What’s more is their commitment to customizable design. The entire catalog offers numerous color combinations and finishes, all chosen by you to suit your taste and decor aesthetic:

When designing a nursery or kid’s room, we know how challenging it is to get just the right look. Have no fear! We offer a myriad of unique custom options to help you! Whether it is a stunning paint coat with complementary trim color to match the interior color scheme, a classic stain to set the mood, or the little details like knobs or an appliqué that makes all the difference, we have plenty of options to craft the furniture that fits you.

Check out their unique listings on modernnursery.com today and let us know how we can help you design your own custom piece!

Happy Earth Day! A Look into Sustainabilty

Earth Day is the perfect chance to remind our fantastic followers of the brands that build with Mother Earth in mind. Responsible manufacturing and sustainability are always at the forefront of these eco-friendly designers. Check out some of our super-chic, environmental stewards of the juvenile furniture world:

Bloom strives for the best by using sustainable practices and recycled materials. Featured in the image below: Bloom Coco lounger and Bloom Otto Table and Chairs (children not included!)

Part of Oeuf’s mission first and foremost is to ‘Be Good to the Planet’…see their quote below on what this means to them:

Be good to the planet.
Use natural, renewable, recyclable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products. Employ eco-conscious manufacturing processes that promote sustainability.

 

Be Good™ is not just something we say, it’s something we mean. As parents, we want our children to inherit a world that is better than we found it. As Oeuf, we have the ability to make that happen.

Not only are they living up to this mission but they are producing some of the top-rated, quality, designer pieces that are sought after by the environmentally conscious community. The new Oeuf Rhea Crib is the latest in their line and it is already a hit!

Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword for Kalon Studios…every decision they make is baked in responsible manufacturing. Here’s what they have to say about their efforts:

At Kalon Studios, we make every effort to be as green and sustainable as can be. In our efforts to find sustainable solutions to manufacturing, we’ve engaged the newest and sometimes the oldest methods and materials.

We’ve used raw materials that are renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic and food safe. We’ve finished our woods with an oil we developed that is so green, so-non toxic that it’s practically food grade.

We’ve made use of the industries most local to us in our manufacturing.

For us, sustainability is defined as having multiple intentions all of which center on the idea of balance, of giving as much as we take, be it through economics, the environment or on the everyday human level.

The Kalon Studios Caravan Crib is a gorgeous example of these practices brought to light.

Spot on Square‘s Robert and Nicole Springer launched their brand with this in mind ‘the home environment should be surrounded by simple, eco-conscious, quality products that promote an appreciation for design’. With that in mind, they use high-end materials and hardware including eco-friendly green grade MDF made from 100% recycled wood content. The beautiful Oliv Crib is an pure example of how their mission comes together.
