NurseryWorks is kickin' it old schoollike, fifteenth-century old schoolwith their collaboration with Tamara Kaye-Honey of House of Honey. The Uptown Collection was inspired by British architecture and furniture design from the fifteenth century. It features a beautiful crib and changing table that might give you a sudden urge to re-read Richard III. Looking at these pieces, we wondered whether more classic styles, say Tudor, Queen Anne, or Louis Quinze, could make a renaissance (pardon the pun) in kids' furniture design. The Uptown Collection attempts to take a modern approach to fifteenth century British design, with two lacquer color combinations and brass hardware. They offer a crib ($1500) that can be converted to a twin bed and a changing table ($1200).
With so much mid-century modern in kids' rooms lately, do you think it's time for an earlier revival? Would you use more truly early modern (in its historical sense) styles in a nursery or child's bedroom?
