When the topic of gliders arises, the name Dutailier is sure to come up. The 35-year-old Montreal area company has sold more than 5 million gliders, primarily to new parents. Their gliders get high marks in comfort, quality and affordability, but often score low in the design department; i.e. tolerable for the nursery, but not fit for the living room. Looking to change that perception, Dutailier has released updated glider designs and an appealing collection of nursery furniture.
The new furniture lines have fruity names - mango, papaya, pomelo and melon - and include cribs that convert to twin beds, upholstered chairs, dressers, night tables and twin beds. They've already begun shipping to stores and appearing on a few consumer websites (like Cana Bee Baby if you want to check out the prices).
Dutailier holds many glider-related patents and we're glad to see the company has listened to consumers and begun to focus more on design and aesthetics.
