Thousands of industry folks just wrapped up the annual ABC Kids Show - the largest tradeshow in the country for kids' gear, furniture, decor, toys and more. Companies unveil their latest products, buyers decide what they want to stock and members of the media, like me, fill you in on what's coming down the design pike. I sat on chairs, laid on beds and kicked the wheels on cribs. Here are ten of my favorite furniture finds:
Argington's Bam crib isn't new, but offering it in green is. Cribs that aren't white, black, natural or espresso are few and far between, yet many parents aren't comfortable painting a crib either. Offering the Bam in green is a risk, but in person I have to say that I liked it.
Click through above to read a little about each piece and why I thought it was notable. Unlike some tradeshows where products won't be in stores for months and months, most of these above are available right now or will be within the next month or two.
