Minimalist, green, industrial and, dare we say, avant garde. The cardboard cot by Album di Famiglia stopped us cold with its simplicity.
Admittedly not for everyone, but it's hard to deny its functionality. The cot is big enough for babies up to nine months old, and can sleep two newborns (as pictured).
You can keep the industrial chic look and leave the brown cardboard as is, write your child's name to personalize, or go all out and paint the whole thing.
The cot comes with a firm foam mattress which complies with safety and comfort standards (note this is a French website so they aren't necessarily referring to U.S. safety standards). It sits on large wheels, making it easily movable from room to room.
The cot is delivered flat-packed and is easy to assemble. It's €220 and available here
. They deliver to the States.
