Bassinets are one of those controversial nursery products because they have such a short lifespan, about six months at the maximum. A waste!, say many parents. But having used one, with two babies, I kinda love them. They're easy to move around the house and are often placed right next to the parental bed for convenient nursing and middle-of-the-night soothings. I just happened to be looking at the bassinet above and noticed they are for sale - or rent!

I have a deep love for velvet, so much that I've written not one but two other posts on the subject, one featuring deliciously covetable examples of velvet upholstery and another dedicated exclusively to the indulgence that is blue velvet. Want to get the look? You could have a vintage couch re-covered in velvet — or consider one of these sumptuous pieces.
