Like so many of the designers we showcase, Baby Geared was created by a new mother with a background in architecture looking for well-designed things for a life with children.
You'll find everything in bedding, furniture, and decor here from world-renowned designers. So if you love beautiful design, you'll enjoy browsing here. Their art section is quite lovely and might make it into our price range. This piece, "Jellybean Tree" by Gale Kaseguma, is one of our fav's. Be sure to check out the rest of the gallery- all of the artists bring something unique to the table, and they all feel like real art, as opposed to just "nursery art."
Their crib selection is another one of the highlights. The Babybox Crib grows and expands with baby, and can also be used as a toy box. It's actually two boxes that fit together and expand- hence the name, Babybox. It comes with 3 modular mattresses that can be added to the crib as it expands. For $2,200 we were a little disappointed by the word MDF in the description, but it's an interesting concept.
The Frazier and Wing FW37 Mobile is made of carefully selected imagery from magazines. Each one is handmade and takes up to 8 hours to make. We'd like to try our own hand at this.
Heading over to the sale section, we were happy to find one of our favorite patterns, Nurseryworks Blocks Crib Set on sale. We love the simple design and reading what designer Rosemary Hallgarten had to say about it made us like it even more: ""Designing bedding for babies is very different from doing it for kids or adults. You want a sense of peace and quiet and simplicity for babies, and Blocks is meant to suggest 'wrapping the baby,' giving the baby protection within the crib itself." Thanks for recognizing that Rosemary! And thanks to Baby Geared for their interesting assortment of the best in modern design.
